Yes, even in southern Germany, we can have heat waves! In fact, I haven't been outside today except to take out the trash. I've been working on a book translation and prepping meals for the extremely busy week ahead. It's 8 PM and it's still too hot for a walk, so I'll wait another half hour or so. According to my weather app, it got up to "felt" 98 today!
Folks, I'm almost afraid to say it, but my motivation is coming back. I've had some time off this past week and it's helped me to regain some focus on WHY I want to lose weight. Pentecost Monday - today - is a bank holiday here and I've had some time to get caught up on projects that have been niggling at me.
No major epiphany, just re-prioritizing going on. Two things that I think have helped, though: I booked my flight to the States for July 22 for a thirty-day stay. I guess that means I'm really going. AND, the weather making it clear that if I don't lose weight, I won't have anything to wear, because I am NOT buying any more clothes in the size I'm wearing now. That's it. I'm done.
Anyone read Seth Godin's blog? Today's was about two kinds of being busy. It really spoke to me. If the kind of busy you're in isn't working for you, you need to try the other! sethgodin.typepad.com/se
Okay, I'm taking the plunge - going in for a week full of long days of lessons with new students including kids-on-school-vacation-learni
ng-English! I'll see you when I come up for air!
