Setting a start date

Thanks for your kind words SheZug. I did Comment back but with all the Google upgrades and account merging they are doing these days, unfortunately I can log in here to make a post but not use the same log in to reply to a Comment.


So anyway, I was saying that the encouragement is much appreciated. Unfortunately it hasn't helped me get started yet, but at least I am prepared when I do ;) ... which ironically is what this post is about.

I'd like to know how you are travelling as well SheZug :)

Getting started...

I am completely at a stand still with getting started. I think about it all the time. I think about all the reasons why. I try different ways of convincing myself to get started.

I put a lot of thought into trying to figure out where the block is. Why don't I want to get started? Surely the carbs I give up are nothing compared to the benefits I would reap. Right?

My current idea is that maybe setting a start date would be the key. Or at least a key to get me moving on this slope.

So I'm going to set something realistic (ie. tomorrow is not realistic). Then I can see the date getting closer and closer and it wont feel as jarring when it arrives.

That's the theory anyway.

And the winning date is .....

Wednesday 31st August!
