Good days, bad days - and then there was yesterday!
Wednesday, March 05, 2008
So, some days (like Feb 29th this year) go PERFECTLY.
And some others, like March 1st and 2nd, I can barely work up the enthusiasm to brush my teeth in the morning! Which means I wind up doing the whole emotional eating thing - even though I'm AWARE of what I'm doing. :)
And the weight goes UP. Oh, yes, it does. My body is more finely tuned to my choices than my brain is. :)
But then came yesterday. I was sick and tired of feeling blah about my choices. So I made one more choice: yesterday was going to be about ME.
I turned off the phones and didn't respond to emails (I couldn't resist checking them, though!). I had a leisurely lunch. I did laundry. I just chilled and watched a couple of movies on my laptop (no, I don't have a TV - I gave up that time-waster years ago). I went out to dinner with a couple of friends and had a blast!
That seems to have done the trick.
Today, I'm raring to go. I've got my wanna-do-today list all ready to go, and I've already ticked off the "work out HARD, both cardio and weights" item.
What's remaining is getting my paperwork ready for the business loan I'll be applying for this week, and then cleaning up my condo again - I'd cleaned it last week, but then pulled out every piece of paper I own in order to get my book-keeping up to date. :)
Today is going to be another fabulous, fun-filled, over-achiever kind of day.
I'm going to do a Bollywood dance workout this afternoon, too, just to get my "wanna-dance" item taken care of. ;)
My challenge to anyone reading this: what are _you_ doing to appreciate yourself today? It may be the most important aspect of your motivation!
