I think I’m experiencing some mid-month boredom/lack of motivation again. Or maybe it’s that whole limited willpower thing. Either way, I’m just finding it tough to do all the things I want to be doing to improve myself. I’m being pretty good about my diet, about my job, about keeping the house clean, and certainly about exercising, but I’m not so hot with drinking less and being more fiscally responsible. How to find that ever-elusive balance I’m seeking???
I do want to take a moment to say how very, very grateful I am for my health. It’s something that is so easy to take for granted. Yesterday I had an annual visit to my doctor, and everything was all good. (I do have to go for my first mammogram soon though – eek!) As I was walking out to my car, seeing other patients going to their appointments, I was overwhelmed with gratitude that I am, for now, healthy. Everything can change in an instant; tragedy strikes randomly. I want to savor this time in my life when I can take my health for granted.
- Food: I ate a ton of smaller meals and snacks yesterday. Breakfast was green juice, a protein bar, a latte, spread out over a few hours. Lunch was a cheese wrap, a salad, an apple. Too many snacks again – I’m so annoyed our directors put that basket of junk in our office! Too much temptation. For dinner, we went out for St. Patrick’s Day. We each had a slice of pizza and shared some buffalo fingers. Plus a beer, two glasses of wine, and a cocktail. Luckily, I was able to sleep in a bit this morning, so no hangover.
- Workout: Short run, in the dark, probably 2.5 miles. I did not enjoy running at 6am; it was a little scary.
- Spending: I’m still doing some shopping for spring/summer. I returned a jacket and bought a dress and a shirt. I think I netted out to about $50.
Today I’m working from home, yay 🙂 A run this morning, and lots of house cleaning. I need a productive day.
