Me too! Does it affect the rest of your life too?
In the past, i generally have petered out after about 2 - 3 weeks. I didn't even realize that I had been doing that until my husband pointed it out to me a few years ago. (My diets began way back when I was a child.)
I can plan with the best of them, but I stink in executing my plan in nearly all areas of my life. In graduate school, I plan out way ahead how I am going to research and put together projects at a really good pace to not throw everything together at the last minute. I have wasted hundreds of dollars on groceries after stocking up for the newest diet plan, only to then lack the energy or disciple or whatever it is to cook and eat what I've planned. Today at work, I've probably been reading 3FC forums for a couple of hours (in need of inspiration), while my calendar sits here under my right arm with a long list of incomplete and pre-planned tasks that I should have gotten done.
I have ADD, but even so I feel like I should be able to get my head wrapped around something and get it done in a day!!!
My best idea at this point is to try to plan the next hour and see if I can execute that. Maybe tonight I can create my own rotating menu of a few breakfasts, lunches, and dinners that I can pre-make or prep for that won't break the bank and will be nutritious.
My goal for the next hour is to: finish entering data and analysis at work, drink my diet Mt. Dew and water if I am thirsty, eat nothing.
Update: I didn't do what I said. But, I did get some work done. I finished my drink but also had a few crackers. Tonight I am going to ask my husband to cook so that I can work on making some basic menus for breakfast/lunch that I can rotate.
