Safe Guards

It’s been too long time since my last post and although my distractions have been consuming, I cannot let them hold me back from achieving the ever important goal of reclaiming my life. The reality of it is that life will always be throwing obstacles at us; however it is for us to choose whether we want to focus on damage control or on taking hold of our future by committing ourselves to the process. As for today, I am choosing to take hold of my destiny by committing to the little steps that will lead me to success. While I have remained consist in my new eating habits, many of the safe guards I had initially established have been compromised and that can only set me up for a disastrous end result. I need the safe guards (aka. my friends and family, my blog which allows me to process out my thoughts, and the books I have committed myself to read) to pull me through these very difficult and distracting times. These are the very things that have allowed me to get off on the right foot and will continue to be the things that will keep me on my journey. No amount of will power will do; it will inevitably fail. So I will weigh-in on Friday, assess the results, make the appropriate adjustments, and place my trust in the safeguards that have yet to let me down.
