Two-And-A-Half Year Plan
Wednesday, February 24, 2010
Well one thing I can't be accused of, is being a quitter. I guess in that regard, I'm just as stubborn as my fat. I signed up on SparkPeople in 2007 and I haven't stopped yet. Oh, I've wavered, and shimmied, and skirted and bobbed, but I haven't quit. I've even lost some weight, only to put it back on because "I deserved a break".
Yea... well.. I said stubborn not smart.
This lifestyle change is a really big deal. I mean, really big deal. If I think a deserving reward is eating pie and drinking scotch, well, that's another part of my thinking that needs to change.
Most of it is comfort. What I really need is to learn a new way to relax. Especially when I get home from work.
I have a pretty stressful job (that I really love, btw) and I get home to 5 kids that all have various excuses for why they forgot which homework or why they had a bad day in school, or why they failed a test, or why they hit that kid with the mustard... I get bombarded all day long.
I usually get home, and head straight for my room. I say hi, I'm going to go change. And I sit for just a minute, but then have to get out there and find out who has a test and where is the spelling and why isn't this math done, and on and on and on.
Or maybe I just need a thicker skin.
