Small Victories

I woke up this morning feeling overwhelmed. Overwhelmed by the huge pile of dirty clothes in my bedroom and the mess throughout my apartment. And overwhelmed by the fact that my week is not going the way it should be.

I skipped my Body Jam class last night because I was tired and then ended up watching Dexter Season 1 (just started watching it) until 10:30 pm. Exercise fail. So when I went to bed I set my alarm to wake up an hour early to exercise before work. When it went off, I could not get out of bed. Once again, EXERCISE FAIL.

Food wise, I actually had a success. I got home from work in a lousy mood and wanted to eat my typical comfort foods--mac and cheese, pizza, ice cream, etc... Instead of doing that, I made up a plate of sliced cucumber, two tablespoons of light boursin cheese (1 point) and a toasted bagel thin (1 point). It satisfied my urge to eat, and it only cost me two points! Plus, I got a serving of a vegetable out of it. So even though I failed to exercise, I'm somewhat proud of myself for resisting the urge to pig out and sticking within my DPs yesterday.

Moving on--today is a new day. I really want to get a workout in, even if it's just doing an exercise tape at home or running outside for 15 minutes. I feel better when I exercise, so that has to be a top priority. I also scheduled a hair appointment to fix my hair from last week (I think my hairdresser gave me too many bright blond highlights) for 5:30. Even though everyone tells me that my hair is fine and that it looks "summery," I still feel like that character from the movie Grease who dyes her hair to the shade of a pineapple. Then, I HAVE to at least straighten the house, sort through the laundry, and take out the trash. Last, I told JM I could hang out at 7pm. So I'm not sure how I'm going to get it all done.

Obviously, I'm going to drop something. I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow. Happy Tuesday everyone!

  1. Way to go on having that veggie plate instead of mac and cheese! I feel like things like that can be the biggest victories.

    good luck squeezing in a workout - you sound like a busy busy girl!
