I have been told by more than one person (and more than once by my father) that I am uniquely susceptible to personal inertia. By that I mean that the direction in which I am headed seems to be the one I continue to head in without tremendous effort to counter that. I don't suppose I am unique in that category, but I do take an above average impetus to change direction. The other side of that coin is that once I am headed in the right direction there is a good chance I will keep heading that way. That sort of positive inertia is what I am experiencing now. I do not know for sure yet, but I may have a theater gig, I just got back from a nice 3 mile or so walk, and I plan to actually do some chores today. I have two auditions coming up in as many weeks. Even my weight loss totals are chugging along very consistently, even the amounts lost each week. I feel like I am rolling down a wonderful hill. My good habits are becoming just that, habits. The personal habits and lifestyle things have been more difficult than my dietary changes because I can keep bad food out of the apartment pretty easily. The other stuff requires doing. Now that I am consistently doing the right things it is getting easier and easier. I just need to give myself an extra push every now and then to keep my momentum.
