Day Six of Spark Streak DONE!
Welcome to Day 7 and 93 Days to go until Summer
Tracking habit: Stayed within my calorie range for the day.
Water habit: Drank my 32 oz cup down only 1.5 times...good enough.
Fitness habit: Got to the gym!
For anyone who has ever seen "Wicked", I'm sure you remember the song "Defying Gravity." The beautiful, soaring ballad sung by Elphaba, the misunderstood "wicked" witch of the West.
Last night, DH and I went to a reception for the premier of next years Broadway Series for Playhouse Square. There is a spectacular line up in store for us. And most exciting....
"Wicked" is coming to Cleveland!
Anne Brummel was on hand to sing "Defying Gravity"
Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap!
It's time to try
I think I'll try
And you can't pull me down!
As I listened last night, I knew what I wanted to write about today.
"I think I'll try Defying gravity And you can't pull me down!"
This is how I feel today.
The only difference that I would note is that I AM playing by the rules now. The rules that keep me feeling good and balanced about myself. The rules that eliminate the guilt and frustration. You know what I'm talking about:
Tracking, water, fitness, attitude!!
I'm in a really good place now and the rules don't chafe, and irritate and vex. They give me order and peace and tranquility. And a sense of pride. You know, kind of like when you ace that test that you have studied a lifetime for.
In the past, I have never accepted the gift of these easy moments as being the status quo. They were always the exception. I was always waiting with trepidation for me to fall back to earth and resume my "normal" existence that included a large amount of discontent and struggle with my relationship with food, my wardrobe, my body, myself.
But this time I will accept the gift of rules and structure and order as the status quo.
It does not mean that I won't "screw up"...it just means that I'm not going to default to "screwed up" as the norm anymore.
This time I think I'll try defying gravity.
