Positive Challenge - Day 2

I can't wait to hear what you guys have to say about yourselves today!

Mine :

I've been told that I give great advice.
And I do take pride in that because... I like to help people, and I like to see situations objectively.

I love this new challenge of yours!!

I am VERY organized and I can take a huge project and think it through so it is broken down to a checklist of "to do's".

Ooh, hooray for being organized!

I am the same way, but mine is super selective :-) I am extremely hyper organized.. but only if it's something that interests me!

So at work, I am a sloppy disorganized forgetful mess.
But yet I have my meals planned out to the calorie, grocery lists organized by location, etc.

I'm very good at asserting an "I will not..." out loud and then taking it as law.

For example if I say to myself "I will not eat anything more today" then there is no question about it. I just will not eat until the next day. I have no doubt about it.

I think this has to do with my touch of OCD and fear that bad luck will fall upon me if I go against such a promise.

I do have to be very careful regarding what limits I set. I fear that if I'm too general or say something like "I will not eat more than 1200 calories a day from now until next year" that I'll be setting myself up to break that promise.

Once I've broken one of these self-promises once, the whole control thing will be broken for good I'm sure. So, small promises or small time constraints.

Chai...Me too. My desk is a disaster area. My job is boring and mostly without deadlines.

My food is the thing I am MOST organized about! I know what I'm having, exactly how much, and exactly WHEN.

One example, I keep a little measuring cup in my can of mixed nuts so I can have the exact amount I recorded in!

Anal? Nah, I just call it "organzied"!
