Day 1 — I need to write about something that I hate about myself. Should be easy.
What I hate… there are a few things. But there are two that really came to mind when I started writing this post.
1. I hate my lack of willpower
2. I hate my negativity
Willpower. We all have it and have the tendency to slip once in a while. But with me I seriously lack it. I see food and have to eat it. And what’s worse… sweets. I have to eat them no matter what. And it’s a huge set back to any of the healthy eating and good habits that I try to have.
I don’t know how to get past it either. I hate that it’s like a force that I can’t overcome, that no matter what if there’s cookies out there in the kitchen I eat them. And not just one…. it’s more like two or three. Why? Cookies are damn good!
Here’s another downside to this lack of willpower. I love to bake. It’s one of my favorite hobbies to do. It’s relaxing and I get to create something tasty that everyone loves. Especially me.
I’m pretty sure that this lack of willpower affects my working out plans as well.
So that’s something that I have to work on. Any suggestions?
Negativity. I consider it being a realist. I’m not setting myself up for disappointment when things fail. Is this wrong? Is it my negativity that is causing things to not always work out the way I’d like them to? I don’t know the answer to those questions. I like the think that things work out the way they’re supposed to and that my feelings don’t influence them.
This is something that I’ve actually been trying to work on. I try to look at things in a different light and hope for the best instead of having a negative outlook on things.
Then again everything in life isn’t rainbows, sunny skies, and unicorns. Right!
So what about you? What do you hate about yourself?
