Friday Focus, January 4th

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone had a great week!  It's been a little crazy for us with the holidays in the middle of the week.  My sweet husband messaged me on Wednesday asking me if I was sure what day it was.  Sadly, I think it's just thrown so many people off.  I will say that I enjoyed the holiday, even though I probably waited too long to try to make candy this year.  Next year, I need to try to start earlier.  I was listening to Jon Acuff's Finish today.  I have to say that he said quite a few things that really hit home with me.  I really need to focus on progress rather than perfection, but it also reminded me of a conversation that I had many years ago with my husband and with my uncle.  I think part of the reason that I have struggled with my weight loss journey has a lot to do with fear.  I know it may sound a little weird, but I think after some things that happened when I was younger, my weight became a mode of self protection.    I have tried to lose weight for years and years and I have failed repeatedly, part of which is some self sabotage.  It really came to me with some of the books that I have been reading and listening to lately.  Most recently, I have been realizing more and more about myself.  I have failed myself repeatedly and now I have to rebuild that trust with myself.  I am a work in progress, but, just like when I was younger and I was taking piano lessons, I would complain about practicing so much and Mom would say "practice makes perfect".  While I may never be perfect, I can definitely improve!  

No big plans for the weekend, other than trying to get some meal prepping done.  The weather is supposed to be decent here, so I am hoping for a good walk in the great outdoors.  What big plans do you have for your weekend?
