Buffy must have beaten back the evil of the Hellmouth for now. I've had a decent day. Yay me! Enough for me to do the Numfar Dance of Joy. (Yes, the Dance of Joy entails patting yourself on the head.)
I had to stay up last night ... or rather stay up all night... to work on a proposal. It's not fun. But if I want to have a job next year, it must be done! I sent it off to my boss this morning, bright and early. So automatically, I feel like I've gotten things accomplished today. That's enough to make ya happy.
I took Izzy, my kitty, back to the vet, trying to recoup her numbers. But she's acting a little pep-ier. So I'm taking that as a relatively good sign.
And seeing as how I hadn't really slept... at all... I went home. I really did intend to get some work done. .....
What are you laughing about?
But the pillow beside me. Right there. Tempting me. Taunting me. Begging me to lie my head down just for a second. One little second.
Approximately 4 hours later....
So after a trip to Starbucks (sugar-free I might add), Target, and the vet's, I'm chilling out at home.
Remember the video I posted on my blog a few days ago from the Shaytards? Well, I was watching his video today and he brought up a point that I think we should definitely think about. Now, Shay had made a goal to do 100 miles on the treadmill before the end of the month. But he fell behind because, well, life does get in the way. Spending hours upon hours on exercise is hard on the lifestyle, family time, and well, just your mental attitude. So he adapted his goal to doing 3.5 miles on the treadmill every day until the end of the month.
This is what I want to discuss. So many times, we have a certain goal. For some reason, be it loss of time for yourself, your family, your work, or just getting burnt out, we can't achieve our short term goals. And I think that's okay! It's better to adapt your goals to something that you feel is more realistic than to get to the burned out stage and quit completely.
But we have this almost obsession with achieving goals, and when we don't, we want to just quit. But it's important for us, and that includes me, to realize that we aren't Wonder Woman. (Or Super Man for the guys. Although, Wonder Woman could SO kick Super Man's butt. DON'T ARGUE WITH ME! Plus she had those really cool bracelets.) And we will have times that we will need to alter our plan to suit our goals and our lives.
I'm probably preaching to the choir, but I felt that I should remind myself of this fact too.
Hope everyone is having a great day! Tomorrow: weigh in!
We all know how hard and torturous weight loss can be right? Kind of like..... climbing out of a pit of lard. Here, I will document my trials and tribulations of my weight loss process in all of its gory detail. From diet to exercise to how I'm treated by people in the world. I'll explore my mental blocks and what I did to overcome them. And yes, I may post pictures from time to time. THAT is how committed I am. So let's go!
