Time for a time-out: Frustration has set in.  

Independence Day

Independence Day

Ok, I am trying to restart.  I started with fasting and that blew up in my face.  I just do not have the focus right now.  By military standards, I am within a good weight limit, but I want to return to better, healthier habits.  Today, I grazed on chocolate and pizza after my lunch and had a huge serving of white chocolate kisses after dinner.   

The good news is that I had insight into my problem.  Right now, it is stress. My mother is sick (on her death bed), my family and I will be separated for at least one more year, and my career is in a state of transition where I am almost certain I will be asked to extend that absence from my family.  

What I need to do is find a way to focus the frustration on positive energy and make a positive impact on my health and weight.  I have decided to wait until 5 July to start my transition.  

Bottom Line: Holidays are a terrible time to start a new diet.
