Well my point system/accountability blog isnt working so well. I kinda suck at holding myself accountable. Ive joined a great group of folks here on SP for a challenge but Ive been so swamped at work that I havent been able to really throw myself in. I hate that but this really a crazy time for me.
Yesterday I took a vacation day from work and we were going to drive about 3 hours to the St Louis Zoo. Its a fantastic zoo and its free, plus I found out that theres a free art museum pretty close so I was really looking forward to going. My car had other plans though. It didnt totally crap out, but I didnt feel safe driving on the highway that far so we went to New Salem where Abe Lincoln lived when he was a young man and just before his political career. It was neat but it was chilly and damp out and the didnt have any much going on so we just kinda walked around and then left.
My friends been telling me about this restaurant so we made the trip (since we were in the general area). They are famous for their horseshoes and shes been telling me about them so I felt obligated to get one. Why? WHY did I feel the need to get something I didnt think I would actually enjoy? It was meh. I dont like cheese drowning everything so WHY did I think I HAD to get that? I shouldve gotten the pizza that was calling me. Oh well- mindful lesson learned. Its amazing how profound retrospect can be.
Today I came to work with nothing planned for lunch. I brought a sweet potato and two hard boiled eggs because thats all I had to grab and go. This is maybe my biggest problem with keeping myself in line. If Im prepared then its SO much easier. I dont have an excuse to go get something crappy.
My new challenge starts in 2 weeks and I cant wait. Ive been letting sugar get the best of me and its time to start getting back to where I was and how I was eating before. I felt amazing and I was excited about wearing old clothes- right now Im just hoping to still fit into the things I got into during the last challenge. I have goals and I need to jot them down and keep them in focus or Ill never start working towards them.
