Conversations with Myself

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Right now hubby's side of the family is causing me some headaches, and my mother can always cause some excitement like last night telling her caregiver to leave. emoticon

I've decided that having conversations with myself can be more constructive then having them with other people, especially family.

Some of my most productive conversations with myself go like this.

Today at the movie theatre:
emoticon I'd love to get some popcorn.
emoticon You don't need popcorn. Remember you are trying to lose weight.
emoticon Yah, yah.....How about some junior mints?
emoticonAh, NO!

At work last week:
emoticon I really have a lot to do, I think I'll skip the gym.
emoticon Really? Do you think that's a good idea? You are already stressed out.
emoticon I don't feel like it.
emoticon Just do it!

At dinner the other day:
emoticon It's cold out, I'd love some comfort food. Fried chicken and mashed potatoes with gravy.
emoticon Um, really? You ARE trying to lose 20lbs in 20 weeks.
emoticon Kill joy!

Do you have similar conversations with yourself? emoticon

Who wins most time? emoticon OR emoticon

    Of course I talk to myself and answer myself also! I call it Creative Muttering. It forces me to focus on what I am doing and not get distracted. At least that is my story and I am sticking to it!
I always win! I do exactly what I want to do because sometimes I change my mind and choose to do what is good for me.
I really need a dog so that I can talk to the dog and people will not notice I am Muttering.
