Persistently Procrastinating

So, I just took a eating profile on a website a couple days ago and my coping personality is a persistent procrastinator. Hmmmm...what does that mean? I'm not going to pay for a premium membership to find out but it sounds right. I always procrastinate before undertaking many tasks, and by the time I take action, I'm quite pressed for time or get overwhelmed by how much bigger the task has grown. Also, if someone asks me to do something for them, I usually stop what I'm doing to help...putting off my own stuff. I put unrealistic expectations on myself to get things done, and if I don't accomplish it by then, I give up. Yes, this is bad! Is there a way to cure this? I will have to find out.

I did find a new source of motivation for getting myself in shape...

Yep, I watched this whole season of The Biggest Loser, and I was rooting for a woman to win. If Ali can accomplish so much and beat the men, I can accomplish what I want too! Of course, I won't be losing weight at her pace and I sure can't fit in six hour or more workouts, but I'm going to do what I can! I'm making some plans which I will share later and looking at a few challenges to try, so definitely watch this space!

Ali rocks, doesn't she? Such an inspiration.

And I hear you on the procrastination front! I finally moved my pile of laundry on to my pillow so I had to fold it before I went to bed.......

Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow, right?

Great blog. Good luck with the pedometer challenge!
