The Siren Song Of My Inner Fat Girl...

Monday, May 23, 2011

So my inner fat girl came to pay me a visit today....and I told her she had to GO, and not to come back...EVER!!!

Since I started on this journey I have been on a pretty regular routine. Today a few wenches got thrown into the agenda. (I'm not gonna get into it, because its now in the past, and I would just like it to stay there, plus this is a positive story) I was struggling with staying on track today. Just wasn't feeling it.

Then next thing I know here comes my inner fat girl. I hadn't seen her in awhile, so I was surprised. Where the hell did she come from? I thought I had told her she wasn't welcome around me anymore? She was telling me that it was o.k. to not work out today, that I have been working hard, and I deserved to sit on my a$$. She was feeding me every excuse in the book why it was ok for me to be lazy. She almost talked me into it too! I was in a trance...I was getting lured into the darkside by the siren song of my inner fat girl!! She almost had me too!

I finally snapped out of it, and pulled it together. I told that fat girl, that there was a new sheriff in town! I told her that this sheriff was healthy, and active, and was going to kick her butt if she ever had the nerve to come around me whining again! I think she got the point. The new healthier me reminded myself that I would regret it if I didn't get my act together! Mind over matter! I pulled it together and went to the gym! 2 hours later than I usually do! I ran another 5k on the treadmill, and did strength training! I shaved 30 sec off of my run, and I was sweating like a dude! It was like a badge of honor! I was like WHAT!?! to that fat girl. Look at me now! You are not the boss of me. Suck it!

So needless to say I am proud of myself! I made the most of my day anyway! I didn't curl up on the couch with a canister of pringles, and blow it. I loved myself enough to have mind over matter! If I had given in I would have been so disappointed in me, and I have learned now that that's not acceptable anymore! I've also committed to a 100 day streak of exercise. Today was day 30. I almost blew it, and I'm so glad I didn't...glad enough to blog about it! Woot woot! Thanks for reading!

That'll learn her. How easy it is to get lured in by the siren song of the fat girl. You're like Odysseus, lashing himself to the mast so he doesn't throw himself overboard to be devoured by the sirens. Good for you! I love the images here.
