I had a Monday

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Man, did I ever have a "case of the Mondays" yesterday. Bleh. I was grouchy and kind-of disheartened about everything. Couldn't get much work done, didn't want to be with anybody... I managed to eat within my calorie range, but just felt pretty cruddy.

However, I read something on Pinterest yesterday. It said, "Your body hears everything you think: Stay Positive." It's so true. My attitude yesterday just made my body feel slow, and tired, and even fatter than usual. So I'm going to work on turning the attitude around. It's always hard on Mondays, I have to give myself a pass for yesterday.... But gratitude, laughter, stopping to be present in the moment, and deep breathing are good ways to keep the mental balance.

Plus, getting some good endorphins this afternoon during a walk/run should help!

    emoticon . Sorry your day was cruddy, but recognizing that you have the power to control your attitude and the ripple effect is has on your body is a huge step! Thanks for this reminder this morning, because it was a timely kick in the pants for me.

    Yay for you!

You are learning new habits for a lifetime, and that includes attitude.
I agree - we all have bad days, and you got through yours and learned something in the process.
