Slow and Steady

My modus operandi seems to be dive in full force, flail, suck water, and then crawl up on the shore to recover.  Over and over again.  I’m in a hurry, All. The. Time.  I love the idea of swimming across the water, but I rarely get more than a few feet from the shore before I crash and burn.  I flail instead of swim, expending huge amounts of stressful...

Hey, It’s Working!

Well, I’ve been at this habit thing for about 5 weeks now, and I’m actually quite thrilled with the results.  I’ve had a bit of a weird weekend, which I’ll get in to in a bit, and I missed two habits on the weekend, but otherwise, I’m doing really, really well – and I’ve lost 8 lbs since Christmas, which makes me very, very,...
