today I read two blog entries from other members - hopefulchange and adam (?). Their messages were: 1) non scale victories; 2) don't be your own worst enemy.
They resonated because I was ruminating on work a lot as I stepped into the shower and feeling irritated - that I have too much work to do and yesterday it was hard for me to take care of myself. The most I could carve out of back to back meetings was leaving one meeting 15 minutes before it ended so I could have a brief break before the next. No down time to have lunch; ate while in another meeting.
I ran this morning and when I came back was still thinking about work. Even though I tried to put it aside and enjoy the ME time while I was running. I considered stepping on the scale even though I hadn't planned to do so tomorrow - and then thought, if it's not what I think it should be - some sort of loss - then I'll be pissed. And, potentially set myself up for a day of negativity and feeling bad ... all because of the scale!
So I didn't. Instead I tried to think of my NSV - getting back into spark, POSTING here, even though I haven't done it publically yet, tracking my food. Exercising. Not drinking wine last night, even though I wanted to!! (Didn't, because I needed to run this morning!).
Glad that I had those two entries to read this morning that reinforced some of my thoughts.
