But then...what is the point of looking at numbers to begin with...if we aren't going to be honest.
I thought about that this morning as I was balancing on one foot then the other seeing if it would make a difference on the bathroom scale. Ah...it did NOT! I am up almost pound.
I read a post awhile ago that Carrie Wilkerson ( who can be found at www.CarrieWilkerson.com) wrote about looking at your numbers. In your life, in your business. So I did. Really looked at one area at a time.
First health...not enough sleep hours a night...not close to what my driver's lincense says my weight is! But truly does the highway patrol carry a scale when they stop you for speeding? Oh...I digress.
I decided I wanted my "numbers" be look different. I joined Weight Watchers for their three month trial. I work crazy hours and eat poorly. I decided rather than do a crazy fast plan I would make up...you know like only protein...I would go to the experts and follow their plan.
It's been working. This week I am up a bit. I was going to pretend I wasn't and then thought...good lord you need an intervention! Numbers are numbers.
So after my momentary flight of denial...I shall review what I am eating, drink more water, add more exercise and watch what happens over the next week.
Seems like a more solid plan then the balancing act on the scale. :)
My point is this... numbers don't lie...that doesn't mean we won't. But if we want a solid life, built on a foundation that can anchor us as we go forth and continue to create the lives we want - we have to build that foundation on truth.
Truth in our intentions and truth in our numbers. :) And leave the balancing acts to the professionals!
