New reflection, new direction
Sunday, December 30, 2012
So yesterday I'm cleaning the house and the kittens (Mickey and Minnie, a/k/a Hooligan 1 and Hooligan 2) bump against the wall mirror in the bedroom and it crashes to the floor.
All I could do was laugh. That might sound like an odd reaction, but it came after a day of reflection and finding a new direction and focusing on that Inner Me to take care of the outer me. Kind of a "here's your sign, quit focusing on the outer appearance, got it!" So now, truly, I can't even look at this outer me any more. Except for the bathroom, which is only from the shoulders up.
We'll see how long I can really handle going without a mirror. Granted it was only the $5 cheap variety, but having to dress for work, its always nice to get that final look-see that the skirt isn't tucked into the back of your undies, ya know?
I don't want that visual either. Changing subject.
So last night I decided to create a vision board. I've read about them so much on Spark but had never made one. What fun! And it kept me from eating for several hours last night. I googled images and copied them to a document then printed them out, and I must say, its already providing helpful reminders to keep me on track. I'll try to get some photos of it put up. I used to make collage cards and collage wine bottles years ago. Such a fun way to express yourself.
Gonna spend time reading Spark until I feel the spark to either get on the treadmill or bundle up and go for a walk. Its frickin' freezing outside, and I'm only just now feeling warmed up. Hey ... I do have some walking dvd's, hmmm...
Yesterday's goals met: tracked, exercised, ate within range.
