An Ode to Success and Fun
Wednesday, February 02, 2011
Yesterday, I was feeling the strength of renewal as we turned the calendar page from January to February. I started January with such promise, then I got sick and it was downhill from there..so I was happy to have a fresh month to have a fresh start with, and I began the day yesterday with so much resolve....I exercised, I ate well all day..I came home and shovelled for even more exercise..I had a great dinner already made..and it was a quick plummet downhill from there. Today's Daily Spark contains a blog about how it might be easier to develop and stick with good habits by making it fun. Here is my first, silly attempt at making this fun, not drudgery:
Why oh why do I eat at night?
I begin each day with a pledge that this time I will not be beat,.
Then, despite what I think is using all my might,
The floodgates open and I eat, eat, eat.
What do I eat?
Anything in sight,
Could be candy, cookies, bread or meat,
And if I keep this up, my future is not bright.
So today, I ask, how many days
Before it is too late?
And how many ways,
Can I try to get to the date,
That I finally figure this all out,
And find a way to stop myself,
To stand up and shout,
That the food will be left on the shelf??
I just read a blog,
That talked about trying to make it fun,
To cut through the fog,
And get the healthy living done!
Will wrting poetry work?
I don't know, honestly and truly,
But lest my responsibilities I shirk,
I must try something, really!
So, if talk like Yoda I must,
To get my words to rhyme,
It's Star Wars or bust,
TO GET IT RIGHT THIS TIME!!
I will not eat at night, I will not eat at night, I will not eat at night,
I promise this to you and me,
I pledge it, I swear it, I say with all my might,
That after dinner, I am going to lock my mouth and throw away the key!!!
