August 31st, 2017 The Weight Of Avoidance

August 31st, 2017 The Weight Of Avoidance

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I exceeded my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with good support.

I decided to get out of the apartment tonight and watch the Oklahoma State football game while eating dinner out. It was very enjoyable. I don't have cable or regular television, only streaming services, so my options for watching the game always include going out. I hope to attend a game this year. I've attended several in the past, but this year the hype is through the roof! The Cowboys won the game in convincing fashion and I stayed within the boundaries of my food plan. It was a win-win!

Today was challenging in several ways. My production load and responsibilities at work are super high at the moment and that makes for long days, plus I've decided to stop avoiding a couple of hard decisions I must make very soon. Sorry to be vague--but the issue isn't important to discuss.

What is important is the fact that sometimes things and people need to be dealt with head on---and if you're like me, avoiding these confrontations can eventually lead to a breach in a recovery plan. Pure and simple-- if important things are avoided, they don't just go away--their presence becomes heavy as they grow and it becomes more difficult to hold them down. I do not want to stuff it down with food. That's what I did for years. Instead, I'll deal directly; releasing the weight of avoidance.
