Rewards System, Rationalization, and Misc.
Sunday, March 09, 2014
I really crack myself up sometimes. I've recently noticed the humorous side of my own rewards system. For example, when I pay my credit card balance off each month I reward myself with buying a "little something." When I've eaten great for awhile, I reward myself with a "little something." And last week, I gave myself my reward for getting to my goal weight (10 more lbs) ahead of time. (smiling)
After not being on sugar for awhile now, I grocery shopped hungry a few days ago. That's like gambling after having a few drinks (like the guy in the news who recently lost $500K and is sueing the casino for having served him too many drinks). So, there was a small box of Swiss chocolate squares. I bought them (and of course, they are now gone) because they were marked so low, it would have been a shame to leave them on the shelf. And I'd read many times that those who eat chocolate live longer than those who don't. (smiling) I felt as though I was doing something to prolong my life. Of course, I don't intend to return to sugar on a permanent basis.
I wrote about the Sansone DVD I'm doing with 30 days of intermittent firming and toning with days of aerobics. Well, I'm into day 10 and I can see results. Wow. And this week, I'm increasing the dumbbell weight. Ouch, I can already feel my muscles ache. But hurts so good, right?
Fish tacos were simply wonderful and I have the take homes, so looking forward to them for another meal today.
Got my taxes done yesterday. Thank God for TurboTax for making the process a breeze.
Love you guys and gals. Really do. Your kindness and caring mean a great deal, especially during times of duress like my recent stress over Harry's eye infection. Thank you all.
Have a happy day.
