Mysteries of Motivation... Basically, a Lot of Rambling
Friday, March 25, 2016
So, I'm back, yet again. I really have no idea what motivated me this time, but I'm going to give the credit to a pair of Bermuda shorts that I ordered. I got them on Amazon and the reviews stated that they run small and to order a size up... So I did. They fit, but they're tight... Too tight to wear in pubic. However, I LOVE them! I reeeeeeally love them! (Just not enough to embarrass myself by wearing them in front of, well, anyone.) I don't have a full length mirror, so I snapped a few selfies...cringed...deleted them...and then I just kind of decided - "Hey! If I lose a few pounds - I can wear these this summer! That would be awesome!" The light bulb lit up, I did a happy dance, and champagne fell from the skies.
Well, maybe that's an embellished version of what happened, but it was something along those lines. There is more to it, though. I have a very physical job, but I injured myself at work in January and have been out on comp ever since... After bumming around at home for two months and I'm starting to feel like the couch and I are conjoining. I feel like a lump and I was convinced that I'd gained A LOT of weight. I mean, it feels like it... As it turns out, I gained less than 10 pounds, so that sucks, but I'm not completely disheartened. I was convinced that it was much worse. Especially since I've been lazy and I love vodka... Deliciously empty calories...
But, I don't want to look like crapola anymore, so for the last 3 days I've been logging my food and shunning my good buddy Pinnacle. So far so good! I'm going to try to ignore the fact that I always pick the worst timing to start dieting (I'm scheduled to be at TWO dinners on Easter! Two!) and just see what happens. I don't imagine Sunday being a success, but one day isn't the be all and all. The important thing is that I keep this going!
