Rain makes me happy, probably because it makes everyone else cranky and it reminds me how great it is to make your own sunshine.
Today I’m smiling because:
- I ate chicken wrapped in bacon for breakfast.
- I have a massage appointment this afternoon before bootcamp!
- I get to hear Life By Design 101 tonight!
I’m particularly excited to be reminded of it all and inspired (it’s pretty much a guarantee). Lately I’ve been eating things that I probably shouldn’t, finding excuses, and not focusing on what’s important. Being healthy is simple!
Yesterday was busy. I started my day with muffins, a banana, and some almond butter — plus coffee, of course — before working the day away. I posted my goals while I was at work, which took giving up perfection/worrying too much. I also made sure that they were big and challenging enough to scare me and reminded myself that if you don’t fail at some of them, you’re not setting them big enough. So on there was a little something about being on the Today Show and publishing a book…big deal!
I bought lunch yesterday even though I’d packed my lunch to eat. I ate croutons, breadsticks I don’t even usually think about, and the dressing that was on the side. And I was distracted, texting and worrying about when I’d make it home to go to the doctors, get my car fixed, get to campus to pick up some stuff from the Gazette from last year, etc. etc. etc. Can you tell my mind was racing?
After work, I did one thing right: I made time to go to get checked at Gainsborough. And I felt a whole lot better after my power was turned on. I ran a few errands and then came home and ate my neglected lunch (salmon on salad with some nuts).
I taught spin last night and it was awesome but my stomach was way off. I blame it a bit on the big salad before-hand and on being seriously dehydrated. If i can do one simple thing for my health this week I need to drink more water. And that’s easy!
When I got home I was hungry so I ate a bit of chicken and some chocolate.
It’s these “bit ofs” that are bothering me lately. I’ve talked before about “sneaking”. The honest truth is that the other day I think I ate 5 squares of dark chocolate spread out over the day–but I only remember eating one. Hi distracted eating, cognitive dissonance, whatever. Hi, something I am not proud of. I’ve talked about my thoughts on not being able to stand still (i.e. there’s no sideways in life) so I’m determined to move in the positive direction this week. More water. Less chocolate (especially less chocolate standing up). More awesome.
That’s all kiddos. This morning I had a sweaty session at CrossFit. I upped my 5RM for deadlifts to 205. I think I’m on my way to the 300lb I wanna do within a year… ! I’m also consistently getting 3 pullups in a row…4′s coming!
Enjoy the weather!
