As I started sparking today I read the motivational message, all about the difference in being interested in your goals and committed. That is ABSOLUTELY my issue. There are big swaths of time where I'm more interested in my goals than committed. I'm pushing myself right now to tip into the commitment side of things again.
It's really humid here this week and that's SO unusual for Colorado. My hair flips and lumps, you sweat like crazy (and here I thought I just was a 'non-sweater'!), and I'm just not thrilled with it. But now that I think about it, it does make for a nice change in my morning walks. Everything's kind of hazy, the sun is hidden behind thin clouds (thank GOD or I would be stewing FAST), and everything looks so healthy and green. That's not the norm around here so I've decided to appreciate it (even if my closet door keeps sticking because it's puffed up in size!)
Yesterday was NOT a good food day. I not only didn't work my plan but I threw it out the window! Took my grandson for a cheeseburger and fries for lunch and had the same thing.
Then had promised my granddaughter that when she returned from Europe (a college study opportunity - why didn't I get to do those things back in the day?) that I would buy her a burrito (the one food item she missed) and last night was the night. Mexican food is tough to fit into my plans but I brought home half of my meal. Even so, two meals in restaurants, no salad selections....way over my food intake for the day. But how much fun to be involved in these two young people's lives.
Vacation coming! Tomorrow is my last day at work so I have a ton of things to complete before I can leave my colleagues without my services for a little over a week. This vacation is exactly what I want right now. We are going on a quick 4 day jaunt to the Black Hills (I've never been) and then I'm spending the rest of the time just lazing around without any responsibilities. I'm so looking forward to it.
So I'd better get going here. Lots to accomplish including getting back on the straight and narrow after a full day of food detours yesterday.
The journey continues!
