Feeling It Today
Thursday, September 08, 2011
I work two jobs, and last night was my second straight double between the two. I didn't get home until after 11pm, and with all the usual craziness of the two jobs back to back I wound up skipping dinner. Add an antsy dog because she hates rain and thunderstorms to being hungry and you get restless sleep. Because of THAT I decided it would be more healthful for me to sleep in a little later than I had originally planned and move my brief morning "wake up workout" to this afternoon. But I overslept and had to get ready in a hurry and now I have skipped breakfast and did not get to pack my lunch. So far I have had a bottle of water and a cup of coffee. So where is all of this leading?
It is leading me to that favorite little hole-in-the-wall near where I have to go for a meeting this afternoon. A place known for its foot long chili dogs w/"everything" (everything is chili, mustard, and onions). I read the article on understanding motivation (or at least Part I. Part II might have to wait until tomorrow), and it is making me feel better, but I can already feel myself sliding back into that "you never stick to anything" and "well, now that you've screwed up and eaten that trash, you might as well go full out then start over tomorrow (or the next day, or maybe just start fresh on Monday...)".
I am hoping that articulating this makes it a little easier for me to not fall down that well again. But if you want to do some hoping for me as well I probably wouldn't argue w/you.
