Apparently it's easier for me to blog on odd-numbered days LOL Yesterday, Feb. 16, I ended up busy and out of the house all day and didn't have a blog in me (see??)
First, I blame the hormones. That's right, I'm playing the 'female' card and PMS card. I can battle through a lot of things, have and do, but boy this stuff just sneaks up and whacks you in the back of the head like a 2x4. If I knew how to combat that and prevent it from happening, I would be rich.
Enough of the blame game. I was weak-willed, had a relatively bad refined-carb day on Thursday, and followed up with a relatively bad refined-carb Friday. I resolved the eat cleaner and healthier for the weekend, and that lasted right up to the point where Bill put moose tracks ice cream in our basket yesterday at the grocery store, then scooped same-said into a bowl in the kitchen, then placed that danged bowl in my hands, complete with a spoon.
*Note - I'm a grown-*ss woman. While it would be convenient to blame Bill for the ice cream, it's not really true or fair. I paid for it, after all LOL and I am well acquainted with saying 'No.'
I keep failing at 28DL, but I keep on trying, rather than quitting altogether. That should count for half-merit, right?
Yesterday really was pretty good, ice cream aside. I had a good run before anything else. I spent the day at OHS doing various training classes to further my usefulness to the shelter, then made the rounds with Bill to different groceries to pick up supplies. To make up for forcing me to buy that blasted ice cream.. heh.. he made me yummy lemon salmon with delish veggies.
I did manage to sleep in until 5 yesterday (which is great compared to getting up every day at 4) but woke at regular time today. It's crazy, but I feel better when I'm up and busy and going all day long than I do when I'm forced to sit 9-10 hours a day. Yet more evidence that I do need to get away from my desk job even if it means a reduction in what is admittedly a pretty stress-free means of living. We've been very fortunate that we are comfortable currently, but that comfort pales when day in and day out I'm in a situation that leaves me unhappy and unhealthy in a variety of ways.
I missed my positive posting yesterday, so you get a two-fer today!
I am passionate - whether its for my family or for the shelter or for whatever cause/reason, when I commit to something or someone, it is whole-heartedly. Having said that, I wish I could commit that passion to my own health and well-being, nutrition and fitness!
I am punctual - I arrive when I say I will, if not earlier than intended. I can't stand to be late, and I fret if for some reason I inconvenience someone else because of my timing. For Bill, this may seem more like a flaw in me than a positive trait, because I hate to change plans mid-stream LOL but that's his issue, not mine, right?
Today I'm all about at-home chores - laundry and dusting and puppy wrasslin' and dove herding and prep cooking. There may also be some movie viewing and DVR catch-up as well. A day of rest, if you will, to recharge and re-energize.
May your Sunday be everything you wish of it, and more.
