CAROL’S CORNER

Welcome to Saturday night in Carol's Corner. Today was the hottest day that we've had in our neck of the woods this summer, or should I say lack of summer? And muggy on top of that, but since we have hardly had any days that could be considered summery we should take it. Today's picture was taken outside of the country music park where we go dancing. After much thought, decided to call this, “Sea-Foam Breezes On The Water”. If you're wondering why no FitBit pictures my FitBit has to be replaced. A new one has already been shipped . But I'm without it until the replacement arrives. Suddenly the other day it just wouldn't stay charged and kept shutting off. It won't keep a charge for even an hour. I have now been told by customer service that it should only be charged using a computer and not any kind of wall plug. And it shouldn't be charging for over 2-3 hours. That is totally gonna mess with me. I always charge it when I go to bed. Who wants to wake back up to take it off the charger? Hubby has an old smaller laptop he's going to hook up by my bed. We'll just have to figure this out as we go along. I definitely feel like part of me is missing . The new one is already shipped and hopefully will arrive the beginning of the week. Till then I am without it. It's like part of your body is missing when you're so used to wearing it. Having a hard time trying to decide what to talk about. So I am just going to chat. I let myself get off course when we went on vacation and have not been able to get back on,diet wise. Exercise wise I am golden. But I am going to need to lose about eight pounds over again. I know I can do it but I keep procrastinating. Does any of this sound familiar? I think it's something we all go through at some point in our journey. It starts out rather small and we say ok it's just this one time. But guess what? You got it, it's not. That one time keeps being another and another till you don't like what you see on the scale and you hate yourself for it. Does this sound like anything you've experienced? I'm betting it does. You wonder how you let it get out of control so fast and how the scale ever crept up 8 pounds in such a short time. It takes so much longer to lose it than it does to gain it. It's sometimes at this point that we get kind of depressed and delay doing anything to rectify the situation. Or like myself I have just been putting off getting 100% serious in taking off those added pounds. Well the day of reckoning has to be soon. The longer we let it go on the worse things become. So here right now, I am telling you that Monday is going to be my day of reckoning. By telling you here on my blog it is a first step in making myself accountable. No matter where you are in your journey, that first step is the hardest, even if it's kind of like a second first step, as in when you have let yourself get off track as I have done. If you find yourself in the same boat as I have, take a step back and realize you are just human and no one is perfect. It's how we handle it that can mean the difference between success and failure. Decide when your day of reckoning is going to be and take the first step in making yourself accountable to someone. By my publicly stating my intention here I will be lest apt to continue on a downward path. I am a competitive person at heart also and I will want to start showing my commitment and my progress. I plan posting in my group and the other's I belong to of my intentions and I will keep you informed of my progress. I also feel that as a leader I have to set an example. It is ok to have setbacks, but my example when that happens is crucial to my being a leader and a motivator. I take it seriously. So do you need to regroup, recommit? Take that next first step of deciding how or to whom you will make yourself accountable. My day of reckoning will start as soon as I get out of bed Monday. When will yours be? Till next time, God Bless.
