I'm giving myself permission to be mad at me. (for today)

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

After just reading a dear friends blog, I answered with "let's give ourselves a kick in the rear and get going". It sounds a little harsh and I must apologize. (so sorry Donna, my friend) Then I wondered why I wasn't more supportive in my answer and realized I'm angry at myself for failing in all my goals for the year. My weight is right back up, and my exercise has been failing miserably.

I seem to have a plethora of excuses at the ready. I started a new job in Nov, it's something I had never done before, and was a huge change for me. It's also a desk job. (after 19 yrs on my feet this was quite a change) Excuse for not exercising? Yup! The hours flip flop between days, nights and weekends. So not getting decent sleep. Excuse again? Yup! And the cafeteria serves delicious food at a reasonable price. Excuse for overeating? Yup!

Now could I learn to control all these things? Absolutely! I need to set aside some dedicated exercise time. And I just have to plan ahead for my food. I can still eat in the cafeteria, but need to make the best choices.

Tomorrow is the 1st of July. It's time to recommit to being a better me.

    Now, it is mid July so I am wondering how things are for you. Are you finding ways to get your exercise? Are you making good choices in the cafeteria? Are you working on getting good sleep (tough to do with your hours)?

    Every day and every hour, we make our choices. Let's make ones that make us proud!

    Cat, I'm so far behind on everything....just catching up on blog posts, and wondering if you're still mad at yourself? Hopefully that was just one of those days....because you are deserving of more hugs than kicks, and I'm here to participate in both!

    I've been losing a bit of weight here and there, somehow, probably from being sick for what seems like forever, but my exercise (as evidenced by the step board) is in the toilet. I'll try harder if you will too, ok? No more excuses for either one of us!

    Well, my dear butt kicking friend....no apology is necessary because that is exactly what our friendship is about...being supportive doesn't mean allowing our friends to continue to live in a state of denial or self pity but rather holding up that mirror and reminding our pals that we need to pick ourselves up, brush off the cookie crumbs, and yes kick ourselves in the butt! So, it's July 1st and you and I know that this is another beginning for us to kick it in gear and do what we know we need to do....I'll kick you....you'll kick me....and the hugs will come when we're celebrating our successes not when we're hosting a pity party.
