Wishy Washy

I've already mentioned my problems with procrastination. Well, another trait that causes me problems is my total wishy-washiness. I'm so sure washiness isn't a word, but deal! If I try to combat my procrastination by making a decision much ahead of the deadline, I'll find a way to talk myself out of that decision and decide to go a different route anyways. I mentioned not finishing the book Anna Karenina in high school. I had decided not to procrastinate and picked my book for summer reading as soon as we got the assignment that was due for the first day of class. The book hung out in my room ALL summer long until about ten days before school started. I never had problems whizzing through books before so it shouldn't be a problem, right? I just couldn't get through it. So, three days before class, I quickly found another shorter book, started the next day, and just barely finished my report in time for class. As in, I skipped lunch in order to type and print the darn thing.

Anyways, I said I was going to rejoin WW. This morning, I changed my mind and was determined to try eating a bit South Beachy first. Heck, it worked for PastaQueen! Plus, it is supposed to help for those with PCOS/insulin resistant/blah blah blah. I think that's what I've heard, and since I do have that problem that makes it hard to get this weight off, why not give it a whirl. By tonight, I'm not so sure again. My Giggleman does the cooking in the house, and he hates vegetables. I show him something green that isn't grapes, jello, or Skittles, and he runs and cowers in a corner. Seriously. He's also a bread fanatic! I told him about my little plan and he goes ok, but then I start reading off veggies that I'm not sure if he'll try, and he got all glassy-eyed. Of course, we could have different meals or I could cook for myself, but gosh, that is a big pain! So, this whole food thing is still a work in progress...who knows, tomorrow I may decide some totally different meal plan to try. The Wendy's Frosty Shake and Chips Diet sounds good right now!

Arrgh, the word wishy-washiness is now annoying me tremendously. Before I go all state spelling bee champ anal on my words, I better stop with this post for now! Tomorrow, come back to hear if I've made any new, lasting decisions.
