It's been a tough week. Considering I have had less to do this week since I was done with school, you would think the opposite... but no. There are several factors that contributed to my 2.2 pound gain (but let's be honest, I can do that in a day so all things considering...)
1st: The re-kindling of what I was hoping to be "it" isn't going well. Without going into too much detail, one of us likes drama and the other one of us doesn't have time for it. I'll let you guess which I am. I am disappointed, not for giving him another chance, but for him not being able to adequately meet my needs. Look at that... I have needs. And feelings. And they are just as important!
2nd: With the aforementioned paragraph, I've been falling into old patterns. Not to mention everyday at work my stocking is re-filled with a different kind of temptation. I'm also out of my Raw Fit and have to special order to get more :/ dropped the ball on that one.
3rd. I went to 3 holiday parties. Yep. You know that story. Unhealthy, tasty food. Alcohol. Fat. Salt. Sugar.
Basically, I am the poster child of what not to do during the holiday season. But it could be worse. I am feeling relatively alright even given all of what I just mentioned.
To recover yesterday, I took my friend's advice to get up and not get out of my pajamas all day. So... I did just that. Got up, had a cup of coffee, cleaned my kitchen, started looking at my taxes, got sleepy so I took a 2 hour nap. Got up again, had another cup of coffee, turned on some Christmas music and my tree lights, wrote out all my Christmas cards, made myself nachos, watched some tv, ate some peppermint ice cream, cuddled with my kitty-monkeys, cleaned out two closets, and went back to bed. In the same pajamas I woke up in. It was fantastic being lazy because I don't ever do that.
I'm making peace with things in my life. Not the end of the world feeling that it used to be when things I wanted ended or disappeared. I suppose that is also a sign of growth and being more settled in myself.
Happy holidays Spark Friends. Thank you for your love and your support. I wish us all health and happiness during 2014!!
