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.

I used to strive for perfect (OK, I admit, I often still do…) When I took something on it was all or nothing. I have to say that that mindset has allowed me to achieve some pretty awesome things.

Checking In – Week 6

Yeah. Well, not quite the results I wanted, but we’re still fighting the “focus thing”. I can only focus on one thing at a time, and last week, that wasn’t weight loss either! Sigh. I’ll post because I need to be accountable, not because I’m delighted with the results! :S Get your own graph at skinnyr However, I did end up...
