Today is one of Those Days.
The kind of day where you just DO what you need to do, even though don't feel like it.
If you thought that chirpy Loretta never had Those Days, you'd be wrong. We all do. And we all also know it's what we choose to DO on Those Days that makes or breaks our journey.
A few weeks ago, I mentioned that my "plan" for this year was to take one of the things on my Big Smart Alecky Checklist and feature it for a month, and work on being Consistent with it. See side bar for my 2011 Theme, Consistency. Riiiggghhhttt....
First up for Janurary was Sleep. Easy peasy, right??? You'd think... Except for me to get 8 hours of actual sleep, means keeping the ol' bod in the sack for about 9 hours. Problem is, after about 6 hours my low back starts waking me up. By the time I get up anytime after 6 hours I have a screaming backache that takes about an hour to unkink. Waa waa waa... boo hoo, poor me. Grump grump...
And before all you kind souls offer suggestions, believe me, I've.Tried.Them.All. Including a new mattress. Bottomline: it goes back to still being too fat. Yeah, I said it. I still can't sleep on my side, and have to sleep on my back. It's frustrating, but there is it. Yep, one more motivation to keep losing weight.
But in the meantime... Plan Schman. The hunt for quality sleep is like the hunt for the mythical snipe...
So what's a grumpy, whining, tired Weight Loss Warrior to do???
Just do it.
Nothing else for it... just keep going. Doesn't MATTER if we feel like it or not. I GUARANTEE you that if you are a human being and not a Computer Bot reading this, you WILL have your share of Those Days.
So set your intention now, before it happens. What intention??
That whenever Those Days pop up, you will not let them be "the boss of you". You will just keep a-going. Pout if you must... grumble and mutter if it helps.
But then set your face like flint towards your goal. Don't take the easy way out... just DO IT ANYWAY.
You will thank yourself later. I know I will.
From Dr Phil's book: "That's your priority. You must hold yourself to a higher standard now. You cannot be wishy washy."
My verse for today: "The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him."
My quote for today: "Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity." --Louis Pasteur
Enjoy the Journey,
