Weekend Blahs!

Saturday, April 10, 2010

I have to make sure that I really watch and manage my weekends. When the weekend comes, I really want to just read, relax, and lay about. But when I think about getting up and going out, I think okay... Now, I have to groom, drive, (FIGHT TRAFFIC), do what I need to, drive and by the time I get home I usually have lost 4-6 hours. And when you only have 36 hrs in which to do everything you want to in a weekend, I hate going out. I just want to stay home and organize and do things at home.

But this usually leads to me hiding in the house forgetting their is sun or life outside and I end up eating badly and become more lazy and I don't do things anyway.

I have to practice getting up early on a weekend day, structure my time and leave me time to relax and I have to admit you really enjoy that relaxation time. It is like a reward instead of an escape.

Today I pulled myself out of the house. I am thinking about going to the grocery store tomorrow. We shall see. I know I will feel better to have more food and I will have more tools to win during the week.

  So proud of you for dragging yourself out yesterday. Being productive on the weekends always sets up as a great springboard for feeling in control of the week by the time Monday rolls around. Keeping this in mind helps me at least want to be productive on a Sunday.

In your honor... I will go to the gym today, and squeeze the most value and productivity and enjoyment out of the day. I know that if I do this, you won't be able to sit about without doing the same.

Love you tons!!

Progress Report (6/21 days)

emoticon I DRANK 10 oz of water. This isn't good because it is all I drank but I was working and didn't even realize it. Now that I am drinking at work. I need to be drinking water at home emoticon

emoticon I resisted chocolate until after work. I started out real good. But I fell off because I didn't each supper til 10:30 PM and didn't eat this whole afternoon. So I need to have better plans for when I am busy, when I am working etc.

emoticonI didn't exercise today emoticon


emoticonI didn't meditate.

emoticon I am practicing staying present minded and watching how I manage my time.

emoticon I wrote from roughly 7:45 Am - 3:07 PM straight through with no breaks except for a food break for 5 mins and one bathroom break. This is great I wrote 64 long hand pages 6x10 inch journal book of story and DIALOGUE. I have never done this and waking up, feeling the urge and following through has completely honored and reaffirmed what I believed about loving myself, listening to the universe and ask and you shall receive. But you have to write it when you receive you can not dictate when you will receive. I can't tell you how this made me feel. If I can do this again and add the eating well, water and exercise I might be able to turn this all around!!!!! WHOOT WHOOT emoticon

Driving Thoughts - Loving myself

Thursday, April 08, 2010

So I am thinking often about loving myself. And I was thinking on the way in to work that I really feel like a whore. I feel like I sell 8 plus hours of my life for cash. I was thinking about how when I am driving home or to work, the windows down, the music up, watching the clouds I feel home, happy. I love the idea of moving, seeing.

I was thinking about relationships and how no wonder I don't respect myself in a relationship and give "it" up to easy or fall so hard over a guy. I already feel like I am selling my soul to survive. What more would it be to sell part of my body? It is not a very far jump. And maybe only the extra rolls keep me from choosing another path. How wrong or different would it be to marry a man for money. And would it really be more than 8 hours a day I would have to devote to him. And would I mind if I was on a yacht or something else.

I am just mulling over some thoughts. What do I want from life? How do I want to spend my life? What do I want to stand for? What do I need to do to get there? What journey must I take?

When you spend your life listening to other people, what you should be, what you should do, working at a job that you hate for cash, seeing people you know doing things they hate, settling....

It takes a lot to realize what life means to you. And once you do, it takes a lot to change a mentality that is so engrained.

Realizing that I have to find a position in life where I can be happy and feel like my 8 hours is more than me needing cash. I want my life to mean something, if only to me.

I need to find a better way to spend my life, to live my life.
This will be my island on Lost. My purgatory. My destiny. My character building sludge.
lol.

Just thinking about how to change my attitude and my life. I want to be like my boss -
happy.

    A person that finds their "true" passion in life and is fortunate to have that as their "job" is very fortunate indeed. I read a book by Max Lucado not too long ago...I think the title was "Finding Your Sweet Spot". The main thing he talked about was how to discover "your passion". One of his points was to think back to your childhood and remember what you where good at... what did you enjoy doing? And then go out and try to find a job that matches those things.....
I wish you much success in finding your passion and being able to work at it...because once you do it's NOT work anymore. :o)

    It's really easy to feel that way about work sometimes. I am proud of the work that I do, and I am able to see how much I accomplish on a daily basis. Take a step back and look at the big picture... You are *working* to *make* a *living*. You are working, and making (earning), so where does the living part come in? Make some time for your writing, you have all the answers as long as you are asking the right questions.

    I hope you are not a cheap whore ;) sorry but I loved your analogy about work. I think you should find out what you want to do what are your passion and how to make it a career that would help your 8 hours of whoring plus it wouldn't be a "job" thats where I am in my journey and Devenirbelle is absolutely right!

    I think it is great that at your young age you are thinking about your passion and what you want. This program has heightened my awareness of not only good nutrition and exercise but also other areas of my life. I am re thinking my future work as well.

Keep thinking.
