Ever have those months that seem... cursed?
Monday, August 01, 2011
Seriously. Every August for as long as I have been paying attention has been extremely rough in one way or another. I try not to buy into it. Honestly. Supersitution? Hocus Pocus? Come on. It's just a month! It doesn't have feelings!
Except it feels like it does, and it has the major case of the Mondays as far as I am concerned.
Everyone who knows me real time can tell you I've been pushing it out like no ones business. Especially this past weekend. Saturday was spent walking around all day at Ren Fair with lots of water and no faire food. Sunday I spent an hour with Jillian, walked around the zoo AND ran 1 mile outside. I suspect my inner clock realized what time it was, and was trying to break the streak.
Alas.. I got on the scale this morning to a .08 UP. This should be in no way possible given that I burned more calories than I even ate, and drank my water. In a desperate attempt to repeat my success the other day, I tried to crawl into bed for more rest. Only to have the two little people who I am assured DID spring from my genetic code, basically bang pots and pans around my head. Fail.
'What did you expect?' Says my inner voice. It's August!
'It's not August! It's just a really bad monday!' I almost catch myself replying outloud. I press my lips together to quench the urge, not wanting to answer questions later of "mommy why do you talk to yourself?" by my kids. Even though at the moment I am sure they couldn't be bothered to notice since they are playing the who can be the loudest Ring wraith.
Still, the feeling of August foreboding remain. But I've decided that I am going to try my best to throw everything positive at it I can muster. Continuing to attack it like I've done with July exercise, until either it goes away or the month is done with.
-I still fit into a size 10!
-All of my big clothes are either in the 'to be sold' pile in my closet, or I gave them away to goodwill this morning.
- I was promised I could do more shopping!
- I get to go to the gym with my mom and sister today! This makes me incrediably happy.
- My ultimate goal dress FITS. Another 10 pounds and it should be smokin' hot!
So there we have it. Hopefully I think of more to add to this list, so I can CareBear stare August until we see some sunshine and rainbows..
