March 3 - Weekend slowdown
Sunday, March 03, 2019
Yesterday (Saturday) was one of the LAZIEST days I have had in a very long time. I think I logged only 2000 or so steps on my tracker. I managed to shower around 5pm, but just put pajamas back on. My husband I did nothing all day long... he watched movies and played games on his phone. I watched movies with him and played my Sims game most of the day. Sims 4 is my guilty pleasure... I used to not tell people I played the video game, but now I don't care.. I like it and it's my "reality escape" for a while. It was a rainy day, neither of us felt compelled to do anything, and truthfully we just needed to "veg out" all day. So we did. I ate close to my goal - perhaps a bit over but nothing like I would have if I hadn't been mindful and still tracking. So, even though it was a completely lazy day, all in all in wasn't a bad day.
Today will be different, my husband left at 5am to play golf, I'm about to meet girlfriends for brunch, and then later this afternoon my husband and I have a funeral to attend about an hour away. Eating may be tricky for me today - I'm going to just make the best choices I can but I'm also going to give myself room to enjoy the food the restaurant offers (it's one of my favorites) and the company this morning, and this afternoon, my focus will be on saying goodbye to my friend's father, and being with their family - whatever that brings.
I gave myself permission to let this weekend both Saturday, and Sunday, be what they are. I think it's important for my journey to give myself days or weekends like this. It won't be every weekend, but I know me and I also know that if I charge too hard, I overwhelm and burn out. I still tracked, even though today will be mostly guessing and estimating, it's keeping me overall on my plan.
It's the averages, the long run, and the journey... I'm still on my way just slowed down a little this weekend.
