February 18th, Sabotage

For my birthday, one of my co-workers gave me a really pretty journal.  I've normally been a journal writer but with this blog, I've not been using a journal.  So what do I do with this really pretty journal?  I have been trying to figure it out for the last few weeks then last night it hit me... blogging information!
My beautiful journal!  Thank you Heather H.!
Outline for today

 I have a spot in the journal for ideas for the blog and then another place for an outline for the day.  I can carry this in my purse so when I have an idea, I can write it down. 

For a few weeks now I've been wanting to write about sabotage.  10 Things that can sabotage your weight loss

Self-sabotage is probably the worst.  My favorite is "I worked out more than normal today, I can eat this!"  another favorite is "one won't hurt"

I found this website that talks about ways to get around self sabotage.

Besides self sabotage there is that from family and friends.  I love my friends, family and co-workers, BUT sometimes they will unknowingly say things that sabotage me.  I know it is not on purpose.  I totally get that.  We are all guilty of that.  I admit that I have done it.  "Oh you don't need to lose weight!  You are great!"  "You are beautiful!  What are you talking about?"

Did you know that you are sabotaging someone by saying those things?  I didn't! 

To anyone that I have ever said that to, I'm sorry.  I'm sorry for making you feel like the decision you are making is wrong.  I have never meant it to be that way. 

Sometimes by being honest we are hurting others.  From now on, I will think before I speak when it comes to sabotaging someone. 

Sometimes our good intentions backfire.

Thought of the day:
Hell isn't merely paved with good intentions; it's walled and roofed with them. Yes, and furnished too.
Aldous Huxley
