Puttin' on my Spark
Thursday, July 11, 2013
Thought this was cute . . . and sooooo depicts my DH's headspace right now. He is absolutely fried at work. This morning when he left for work, he had to turn around and come back to get his wallet, keys and watch that he'd left without.
I have to drive to the big city today so it will be a long, busy one. My schedule will be out of whack and I will be out of my comfortable rut. It's always a challenge to stay on plan during these upsets in schedule. It's much easier to find excuses to do otherwise.
Although we will be stay-cationing (staying at home, rather than going away for vacation), we will be taking day trips. Sunday will be a fun one. It's DH's daughter's birthday and we're riding with her & her DH to the coast for lunch. We'll probably go to our fav Mexican restaurant . . . and I absolutely LOVE their chips and salsa. Knowing that, I am already prepared with a good menu choice. . . and I will also drink a lot of water.
I love the challenge, because I know I am putting myself to the test. I can remain a slave to my appetite . . . . or I can honor my health and body by finding ways to succeed -- perhaps by eating smaller quantities, so I don't feel deprived, or simply by making better choices. If everyone else is sitting around enjoying chips and salsa, I know I'll feel bummed if I'm sitting there sucking on a lemon with a bad attitude. So, the choice is up to me.
