Nutrisystem Weight Loss Review 2015 ~ Week 8 #NSNation #sponsored
I’m beginning to dread these updates, because I sound like I’m totally bonkers. So much has happened this year already. My life normally isn’t that way, but it’s been a challenging few months.

The good thing about journaling is that you SEE what’s going on. You have to reflect on it, and you can go back and revisit it. You can’t deny it. You can’t hide from it. And each time I blog about Nutrisystem I re-read the previous post and see MY PART in the problems I have. That’s the first step to fixing the problem!! Identifying the cause of the problem. Realizing what your triggers are. For me, if I start eating Girl Scout cookies, I will find the empty box in a few hours and wonder what happened. (And, in my defense, I eat quite a few but my family helps! lol!)
Another good thing about journaling is that when I re-read past entries, it almost seems like it’s someone else who wrote them. I find myself going easier on the writer (me) than I would at the time it’s happening. In other words, I am less hard on myself when I’ve had time and distance from the situation. When I come back and read what I wrote, I’m more empathetic to me. But I also am less likely to let myself rationalize and get away with it. It’s more of a heightened reality. Kind of like self-counseling, if that’s a thing. It’s like a friend giving you advice. When it’s not them, it’s easier to see thing objectively.
This past few weeks have been much, much better for me! I had been sort of spiraling out of control since last fall, with everything building up to losing my best friend (my dog). He was sick for a while, and we knew it was coming. We did everything we could. I’m grateful to our awesome Veterinarian for helping make his last days comfortable for him. I also took on way too much with the blog and reviews for our holiday gift guide. I was trying to reward the people who help me, but ended up resenting them because I thought they should do things differently. Yet, apparently I was not being clear because it seemed that nobody could understand what I was asking for. It was a really tense time, and I’m glad that’s over with! I admit, I was devastated at some of the changes. But, since then I’ve been picking up the pieces. And, I’m finding that I shouldn’t have stepped quite so far away from the day-to-day stuff to do other things for Gimmie. And, I’m having fun again with finding things to share with you guys! So, it’s all good. 🙂
