Accept the Apology You Never Got & La Conner Weight Loss Plan
Saturday, June 22, 2019
A few years ago a close friend had an outrageous tantrum at me in reaction to a discussion I was having with someone else. I was shocked by the outburst, no one has every talked to me that way. But I didn't react to it, like I would not react to a small child's tantrum. The friendship continued but I have been a little guarded. Tonight I was shocked when she apologized and said she has been wanting to do this for a long time, and she is sorry she didn't apologize sooner. I was quick to accept her apology. Maybe you have to live long enough to get all the apologies owed to you. But I have something better, accept the apology you never got so you can heal and move on, which is what I did a long time ago.
My update on getting ready for my summer guests. I did one hour of decluttering a guest room (the repository of my indecision). A little morning reading motivated me. "The greatest step towards a life of simplicity is to learn to let go".... Steve Maraboli (from NANASUEH's blog). I stopped thinking about what will happen to 'this' when I get rid of it. Stop! If I don't need, I need to part with it now, and not let these thoughts slow me down. I have got a great start on the room.
Today we went to a brew pub for lunch. I ate a Marie Callender turkey dinner, 280 calories before I went. When I joined the others at the pub, I had only had one obligatory beer, and no food. Saved on calories!
Only 15 days to achieve a weight loss target before the 5% Summer Challenge starts. My goal is small but it will get me into onederland. I will be 199.9 or less by July 6!
We are going to La Conner WA for an 11 days RV vacation with friends we are meeting there. My plan is to have shakes for breakfast, no evening eating, bike daily - even 5 minutes is good, daily walk - even 20 minutes is good. I can do it!
