Back to the skinny grindstone!
Yesterday was a real energy-suck and after a day of breaking the news of my break-up to people, I gave into my wallowing and self-indulgence for a few cleansing hours (yes, a bottle of champagne and brownies can be cleansing every now and again). Today I woke up with the sunrise and am ready to take on all the challenges ahead. I even want to brainstorm some new challenges-- something to jumpstart my fitness/weightloss and really push me and my goals ahead during these first couple months sans boyfriend. So step one-- get the wallowing, energy-suck out of my system. Check! Step two-- create new goals. Step three-- create a plan. It's going to be a tough road ahead, but having a clearer idea what path it is I want to take will make the stress to come a lot more bearable.
Now here is something healthy that I'm looking forward to-- non-food indulgences. So the brownies have come and gone and instead of comforting myself with food, I'm going to treat myself by doing some things alone that Josh wasn't really keen on. First stop, going to the zoo! I'm bringing my running gear and after work I'm going to take the train to the start of the lakefront path and then run the five and a half miles to the zoo, have a nice time alone looking at monkeys, and then head back. What should tomorrow's healthy treat be?
