Dusting myself off
Thursday, June 27, 2019
Time to get my head back into the game. Pick myself up and dust myself off, so to speak. June has been a kind of loosey-goosey train wreck. Things were hectic at the beginning of the month. Then I had some time to myself during the middle of the month. Then I celebrated my birthday for practically a week (and that was when I stopped tracking for a week). And now I'm back to tracking but then last night I drank too much beer and so today has just been a poopy mood day. But I'm done with work and I don't want to go back to where I was at the end of last year and I definitely want to move forward so I'm still going to weigh myself at the end of the month and, whether it's a higher, same, or lower number, record it and move forward.
I worked from home today so I waited until I was done with work to take a shower and that instantly made me feel better. Then I went into my closet and tried on some of my next-size-down pants that almost fit again and took a good long look in the mirror and said, "You do NOT want to derail these efforts. You're making progress. You're going to hit rough spots. KEEP GOING ANYWAY." So I will!
And hubby is away yesterday and today helping his son put a railing on the new deck he built in May so I get to have a little "me" time. Which, actually, is why I got a little carried away with the beer last night. I remember when I did this (Sparking) the first time around (2007) that I gradually found myself making choices about what I did and didn't want to "spend" my daily calories on. I remember thinking that bread products for the most part are just not worth the "cost" of the calories because they don't fill you up enough, so I started getting grains in other ways. I also remember giving up drinking, by and large, for the same reason. I think I'm at that point again.
Anyway. 'Nuff said for now. Feeling better with every word. Time to cook some salmon and make a big salad and some rice for my dinner... well, maybe in a bit. It's a gorgeous afternoon.
