Day 7 of 100

Thursday, April 29, 2010

Copied from a mail message to DLEE27:

"Okay, is it totally weird that I feel...almost giddy? Today was a good day. Today was a great day! Today was a wonderful, amazing, in your face and suck it failure and disappointment, kind of day!"

I am extremely happy for several reasons. Here are my top 5...

emoticon 1. My boss gave me a card (and gift) for graduation. Not at all necessary considering all she's done for me in the past three years - giving me time off work when I needed it, working with my school schedule, giving me that semester of personal leave so I could get some day classes in, giving me advanced training and opportunities at work, etc. I really look up to this woman and she reminds me of my (now passed) grandmother, so to hear her say "I'm really proud of you" just felt damn good!

emoticon 2. A boy at school, okay, so I have a completely innocent crush on him (the kind you have on a movie star or something where you think he's just "SOOOO HOT!" and everything he says sounds wonderful to you), accidentally called me "baby" today. *lol* It made me smile because, well, because he's hot, but also because I felt like this new life I've started for myself was part of the reason. I felt cute for a moment...that doesn't usually happen.

emoticon 3. I was on track with almost all of my goals. As of now I am under on calories, carbs, and protein (that doesn't usually happen, that last one), but for most of the day I had a very balanced day. Think I'll just eat an apple with a little bit of peanut butter or something here in a minute...maybe not. *shrug* I feel really good about where I'm at today as far as my food and such.

emoticon 4. I'm not sure I can describe this one...I feel...I act good. During the day I feel very "up" most of the day. Most of the day I feel good about my life. Most of the day I am focused and happy and content. Stuff doesn't tend to bother me as much. People don't seem to annoy me as much. I don't know what has changed but I really - REALLY - hope this is a permanent change. Of course I know there will be bad days (I've had some already), but for the most part, things are better..internally...emotional

emoticon 5. Finally, this is day 7 of the 100 Consecutive Days Workout Challenge. Thank you SPUNKYDUCKY for this! Really, thank you! I started on my inStride Cycle XL tonight with a goal of doing 10 minutes, maybe 15. At 15 I thought, "Okay, maybe 20." At 20 I thought, "Alright, I can do 25." At 25 I thought, "Well, it's only 5 more to 30...why the hell not?!" I'm really tired, but it feels good. SEVEN DAYS! SEVEN DAYS IN A ROW! I'm almost at the end of week 2 and I hope all this effort shows in rewards on the scale.

Oh, and my favorite quote from today...had me giggling for a good long while:
“If you let your head get too big, it’ll break your neck.”

That's just funny...I don't care who you are.

    It's so great to reflect on your day and focus on what made it so great...and it definitely sounds like yours was a 10! Remember to use this blog to get you through those days which aren't quite as good! And, FYI, that feeling you have, where you feel "up", focused, content and happy...well that is from actually putting yourself first...taking care of yourself...You are on your way to changing your life for the better because you finally feel you are worth it and have committed to this new AWESOME is that!?!?!!!!!!!!!

    Stay Strong!!!
