Saturday Morning Plans

Saturday, November 20, 2010

I didn't work out on Thursday. I didn't work out yesterday either. There's no excuse for Thursday beside being an emotional wreck. Yesterday I was busy, busy, busy.

Slept in - much needed!
Showered and hurried to the doctor for my Depo shot.
Weighed in at 345 on their scales (always higher than mine). She looked at my file. I weighed in at 352 on 10/8. Decided I could do better than that and I will next time I'm in there, but was happy to report to my doc on the way out that I was under 350.
Came home to prep for my interview. Once nails and such were done I headed toward Charleston. Showed up 30 minutes early (not late! *lol*)...oops! I apologized and explained I never knew what the traffic was going to be like at lunch on Friday...she understood.
Interview lasted for an hour. Went well, I think. It would be a great place to work. A lot of what I already do, plus a little extra, with higher pay and in the private sector. I explained that while I understood there were risks with the private sector, there were also more opportunities. What should be, will be.
Left there and drove straight up to the movie theatre to grab tickets to HP7 for me, Hubs, the boys and my MIL. Hubs left to drive down to meet me with MIL and boys in tow.
Shopped at Fashion Bug for a bit and found a purty sweater for 10 bucks and a couple other shirts on sale or clearance. All sizes were 1X or 2X. Much different from the 3X and 4X I used to buy. Felt good.
Movie was pretty good. Not the best HP, but good still.
By the time we drove home I was only up for grabbing pizza and movies for home and chilled with the boys before getting to bed and setting my alarm for this morning.

The gym opens at 9am and I plan to be there soon after. I need a good workout to break me free of this madness. Also needed today? TONS of water to flush this week from my system. It's been a crazy week mentally, but I think I'm ready to move on with force.

Plan for today?
1) Exercise well.
2) Drink LOTS of water!
3) Plan for the week ahead.
4) Grocery shopping.
5) Watch some football, maybe.
6) Clean! I want this living room DONE!

I'm not likely to have a great weigh-in tomorrow. I may even gain a pound or two from the bloat and stress of this week. But I'm trying hard to remember that this is just another week in my life, and not a make or break thing. I've got more work to do, and I've got a fire left in me. Going to surf some friend pages and ignite that fire a little more. And, if all else fails, listen to Katy Perry's "Firework" and remind myself to show myself what I'm worth.

I'm worth the time it takes.
I'm worth the trouble.
I'm worth the heartache.
I'm worth the success.
I'm worth the chance for a better life.
I'm worth the money for gym memberships and healthy food options.
I'm worth staying on the path I've paved for myself.
I'm worth a job that awards and appreciates my talents and lets me prove myself.

What are you worth?

    you ARE worth all of that and more!!!!

    I have a hard time admitting what I'm worth, but I KNOW that I'm worth 8 hrs of sleep and getting to the gym 5 days this week. (so with that being said... i'm off to bed!!!:) )

    "... surf some friends to ignite the fire".... love it! I choose to do that often. My Sparkies are the smartest people who tell it like it is! Also, awesome that you "apologized" for being early for the interview (they duly noted that I'm sure). Hope you and the job are a good fit.

    You are doing awesome on your weight loss. 7 lbs since oct. 7th? Progress not perfection my dear!!!

    What am I worth? Alot more than I used to think. I am worth my place in the world, good food, time for myself, new friends, encouragement and commitment. I am also worth a new puppy but hubby doesnt see it that way (yet). Im working on that one!!

    Sounds like you've turned a corner. The fire and focus are evident. I also love your attitude about this is a week in the life; not a break or make event. Good for you for maintaining such a balanced perspective.

    THANK YOU for sharing your struggle and letting some one like me -- who never learned to experience negative emotions (repress, repress, repress!) -- learn from your fight. You exemplify what I want to be able to accomplish: recognize, admit, deal with, learn from, and move on. What a trajectory you've cast this week alone!

    Ok... you can't tell me that being an emotional wreck isn't an excuse for not working out or I've lost my excuse for the entire week! emoticon

    I'm worth the kicking and screaming and tears to get my ass to the gym that will lead to me feeling like a Curvy Bombshell Goddess sooner than later!!!
