Yesterday I decided I was going to start using this blog each evening to reflect on at least three good things that happened that day. Obviously, by the time I got home I didn’t actually follow through with the great plan last night. As I was walking home from work I had a bit of a spring in my step, I actually felt good; I’d been to the gym, had dance class later, I’d stuck to my plan for food and I’d even had a productive day at work. And then it all came crashing down...
And what cause this horrible turnaround you might ask? Of all the silly things, a car of highschool boys who felt the need to yell out the window as they drove by. I don’t understand how such a juvenile act can transport me back so many years and affect my mood so much still (highschool was a LONG time ago). Shouldn’t I be older and wiser now and be above letting juvenile antics get to me? I guess I haven’t figured out how to move past the trauma’s of highschool emotionally since I’m physically in the same place. There were 4 years of freedom when I escaped for University, but now that I’m back living at home, working at the same place I Just can’t seem to let go of the bitterness.
Anyways, better late than never, here’s my list of 3 good things from yesterday:
1) I ate what I had planned for the day, and (this is the key) ONLY what I had planned. Snacking is my worst enemy right now, if I take the time to plan, my meals are good, but then after dinner while I’m studying I “need” to put something in my mouth.
2) I made it to the gym and stuck it out for the whole 45 min class even though it felt way harder than normal.
3) And this is the one I’m proudest of, I didn’t let the stupid boys ruin my whole evening, sure I wanted run home and cocoon on the couch all night at first, but a bit of angry music the rest of the walk home and I managed to fight off this urge, cook dinner and have a (semi) productive evening.
