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.
