The Good, The Bad, and The Annoying

Friday, September 03, 2010

Yesterday was...interesting.

The bad: I was bored most of the day and wanted to eat nothing but crap.
The good: I ate well anyways and stayed within my calories for the day.
The annoying: The scale says I'm up .8 pounds.

The bad: I was taunted by the hill outside my work.
The good: I didn't have to climb it...yet!
The annoying: I do have to climb it tomorrow.

The bad: I had to wait a half hour for my lunch date to meet me.
The good: I stayed on task at lunch even though I was super hungry.
The annoying: Waiting. I *hate* waiting.

The bad: CATO is out of the jeans I got the other day in a size 26.
The good: I found another pair of size 26 jeans and they fit perfectly!
The annoying: Paying for jeans when I know I have a gift cert SOMEWHERE!

The bad: I got lost on the way to my meeting.
The good: I still made it in time.
The annoying: Having to go to the meeting.

The bad: I had to work really late for the paper and my friend wasn't there.
The good: I was confident in my abilities and my article.
The annoying: The new guy tore my article apart, rewrote the thing, and treated me like trash!

The bad: I was super angry after being treated like crap and didn't work out.
The good: I only ate one thing, and something that fit into my calorie goals.
The annoying: Again, the scale says +.8.

The bad: I'm still very angry about yesterday and anxious about tomorrow.
The good: I'm trying to live for today.
The annoying: It's not really working right now. :(

    I like the advice from 1BigDream too. But, I like ninjas emoticon . It's too bad there isn't a ninja emoticon...hee hee.

    Focus on the positive, you will succeed tomorrow. You have the drive, desire and will power to do whatever it is you set your mind to - you are living proof of that.

    Think of that small gain on the scale as being extra muscle weight from all the successful workouts lately, it's a good gain emoticon .

    Good luck tomorrow - I can't wait to hear about how all the worrying about the hill was for nothing :-) because you are gonna kick that hill to the curb! emoticon

    I like the advice from 1BigDream :D

    Also, couple counter points:

    Why are you letting that hill taunt you? EVERY hill looks intimidating if you -let- it. Instead, focus on how awesome you've been doing. How you were the *example* at the gym. You can do it :) it's mind over matter. "If you believe you can or if you believe you can't -- you're right!"

    Paying for stuff when I know I have a gift certificate? Sucks. I just did that at bed bath and beyond to the tune of 75 bucks. ugh.

    Work out when you're angry :) You'll use up that fight or flight hormone that is causing your body to show that .8 gain. Srsly. Hormones are powerful little buggers.

    That's such an awesome way to look at things. It definitely makes you think at least a little more positively about the negative.

    Anyways, don't worry about the scale. If you have been eating at least halfway decent, you did not gain weight and you most certainly didn't gain almost a pound of fat, either.

    Tomorrow's a new day :) The guy who tore apart your article needs to be on the receiving end sometime, and maybe he won't be such a jerk.

    Hack through Friday like a ferocious warrior!

    "Take THAT, New Guy!"

    " HIA-YA, Annoying Stuff!"

    , you can't catch me, Hill!"

    Be a ninja today. And tomorrow. Kill it!

    I am sorry yesterday didn't go as planned and that it made you feel a little bad but I am so proud that you were able to see the other side of the coin for every "bump in the road" That's the spirit. As for the guy at work, you can tell him to go jump!!! I am sure the scale will tell a very different story tomorrow!!!

    Take care xxx
