It’s Tuesday- the day we either toot our horns or confess the transgressions of the previous week (month/year).
Today, I am going to do both. I certainly have plenty of transgressions to share but I also want to share the good. I am trying to lead a more positive life, yo.
Let’s get started, shall we?
1. I ran a marathon on February 15, 2015. In the weeks after the race, I did zero running. Oh, I did lace up my shoes a few weeks out and I did run, but I moaned and groaned and hated every step of that run. I truly did not feel like running at all…..and so I didn’t. The guilt was killing me and the non-exercise after months and months is killing my waistline.
Toot: I ran yesterday. I ran two days last week. I did not die. I almost enjoyed myself. This is huge, people.
2. My clothes are too tight. I am still eating like I am training for something big but I am not. Too many calories and most of it crap. Yes, really. I have this horrible habit of hitting the crunch snacks after my kids are in bed, and not just one serving. Crunch snacks will be the death of me if I do not reign it in.
Toot: I am starting the 21 Day Fix on Monday. Basically, I am committing to portion control- eating the right things in the right amounts and exercising for at least 30 minutes a day for 21 days. I already have my Beach Body kit in my hands, I’ve read the instructions and I have the support of a wonderful coach. I do well with a plan and this will be the plan for 21 days (and more).
3. I have over-committed our family with after-school kid activities. It’s my own fault and I am paying the price. It is only happening in the Spring (it wasn’t like this in the Fall) and there is no way I could do all that we are doing without a husband with a semi-flexible schedule and a mother-in-law who lives with us and is willing to pitch in with driving or making dinner. BUT, we are doing too much and I won’t make this mistake again. I won’t bore you with the myriad of activities we are involved in because I am kind of embarrassed to write it all out.
Toot: I have learned my lesson. This semester was a total rookie mistake, except I am not a rookie.
Go ahead- it’s your turn. Confess the bad and follow it up with the good. You’ll like it, I promise!
