Since our last visit, I've maintained the integrity of my calorie budget, I've remained refined sugar-free, I've met my daily water goal, I've enjoyed a couple of really great walks, and I've stayed well connected with exceptional support.
Finally! October! This is my favorite time of year. I love the weather. Our high Thursday is expected to be in the 60's. Time moves quickly! There's an interesting dynamic along this road in relation to time. When things are going well, time carries us closer to our goals quicker than we imagined. In periods of struggle, the quick passage of time can become a source of strong negative head chatter in the form of calendar regret. What I try my best to practice is a focus on just today. If I can somehow forget about time--and just focus on today and the practice that helps me make it through today--then renew that one day focus tomorrow morning, and again, and again...suddenly I'm not in a race against the clock or calendar.
I'm a big believer in positive visualizations. These focus on imagining the long-term positive consequences of this daily practice. They don't run contrary to the one day at a time mentality. Their purpose is to generate enthusiasm for the daily practice. Dreaming of where this takes us without putting time stamps or "delivery dates" on those dreams, is important. The possibilities. What's possible? Anything.
Another 8-week session of my small, private, and exclusive accountability and support group starts next Wednesday. If you're interested in joining us, please email me soon for available space and details. We have a few openings once again! firstname.lastname@example.org
