A Wednesday Carol
Wednesday, January 04, 2017
This is one of those moments where I can easily predict the future. The Ghost of Wednesday-Evening-Yet-to-Come has shown me what will occur later today:
I work until 4:00 and get home at 4:30. I have no idea what to make for dinner so I throw in pizza and play video games on my iPad until it's done. After eating, I need to go to my hair appointment at 6:40...so there's really no time to work out. I get home with new highlights around 9:00, eat something unhealthy since the day's already been shot with the pizza dinner, and go to bed.
Yes, this is what The Ghost of Wednesday-Evening-Yet-to-Come has shown me. Now, like Ebenezer Scrooge, I must change! I must decide to honor health and wellness all the days of my life! Here is the future I want instead:
I work until 4:00 and get home at 4:30. Since it's too early for dinner, I put on workout clothes and hop on the treadmill for a mile. If I'm motivated, I also get some upper-body weightlifting in. It's 5:00 now, so I have plenty of time for a quick shower and some build-your-own burritos for the family's dinner. Personally, I'll skip the tortilla and put the chicken, black beans, and cheese on a salad. Then off to a hair appointment where I can enjoy my down time in chair knowing that I've eaten well and worked out, too.
Yeah, I like that version better. Wish me luck in making it happen!
