So, a few days ago, I was all, "Yeah! I've got this week owned! Raawwwrrr!" Yeah, not so much. This week snowballed, with a rough day at work, then some poor sleep, than some bad food decisions, and another rough day at work, than some wine, and discovering the chocolate-peppermint brownies I made at Christmastime in the freezer, and, well, you get it.
I need to not be rocked when my schedule and/or plans get knocked out of whack. I did that thing this week, where there was a flat tire, so I slashed the other 3 tires, instead of focusing on getting the one tire fixed. That's my favorite weight-loss analogy because it's so very true!
This weekend will be challenging schedule-wise, but I'll be doing some fun things with positive people. I'm volunteering this weekend with a local group, Fences For Fido, where we go out and build fences for dogs that are chained 10 or more hours a day, so they can be safely untethered. There's no judgment of the owners, no "You should/shouldn't do this," no assumptions about what breeds of dogs are "good" or "bad"---just trying to solve one problem a lot of dog owners face, and maybe make their lives easier, and their dogs a little happier. Plus, the other volunteers are really good, kind people!
Sunday is a TV night, when I go to a friend's house to watch "Mad Men"--she's a foodie friend, but she usually makes healthier choices, so I know she'll have a lot of fresh veggies or maybe a light soup on hand.
I will get some time in to walk; I know my week would have been more manageable if I'd carved out that time for myself. Even if I was eating too much, I could have at least felt better about myself overall!
Cheers to healthful, positive weekends for all!
