This weekend I have tried at least to follow the daily diet and exercise plans. Maybe the issue is that I deal too much. I expect perfection and following the rules to the letter. That is a type of black and white thinking that does not work. It has ended up doing me no good. I have the ground rules, but I find them hard to follow. The best and only solution is to change my thinking. I realize that with the type of black and white thinking is hard it will be quite difficult. For example, it is best to keep things simple. What is a meal plan and how do I incorporate exercise into that plan? Do I write down what I need then put something together? I ask these questions all of the time. The problem is that I don't keep it simple. I am at a point where I have allowed myself to be overwhelmed. So, where do I begin?
