Monday's are not my favorite day. I actually hate them. I have complained about Mondays. I have wanted to have the day removed from the calendar. I wanted the day to be part of the week end. But no matter how much I disliked Mondays, they always came the day after Sunday. Go figure.
Just last week I blogs about Monday Morning Blues.
I was laying in bed last night starting my usual gripe about tomorrow being Monday and how I hated it. All of a sudden I really listed to what I was saying. So I hated Monday's. I have been hanging on to that feeling for years. Has Mondays changed? , They sure haven't gone away.
So what's the use of wasting my energy ,gripping and getting cranky about something that I can't change.
So finally I have come to the conclusion that I will accept Mondays. I will face the day with a smile. I won't have any more negative thoughts about Mondays. It's an important day in the week. It starts the week off. Once Monday is gone there are only six days left.
I can do that. After all I am in the process of reinventing myself. I might as well stop bitching about a day in the week and concentrate on more important matters.
More important matters like : Should I cut my hair? Should I change my hair color? I wonder if I will need some nips and tucks in the future? Oh yes, I can think of all kind of important things to occupy my mind now that I have accepted Mondays.
I can also debate whether to do cardio or strength more times per week.
I did cardio today, burned over 1300 calories.
I took my dog Titan out walking with me this morning. It was cool, only 60, but the humidity was high. I was sweating, when I got home. Titan had so much fun. When we first went out he headed for the car. That what he is used to. I said No, we are walking. He looked back at me as if to say you gotta be kidding.
He got to meet some neighborhood dogs, and was a perfect gentleman. He smelled a lot of areas. This was no power walk. We did a lot of stops to sniff the grass. He was in doggies heaven. I will make every attempt to take him out more now that I can get around without the walker.
I am feeling great , eating under my calorie range, but full and not craving any foods.
I have all kind of energy . I try to balance protein and carbs. It's really important to combine the right food in a meal to get what you need out of those calories.
I exercised for almost 3 hours today. I still have yoga to do tonight. Might use the stretch bands a little too as I watch TV. Every extra movement helps.
I do believe I have stopped being obsessive about food. I now am obsessive about exercise.
I hardly think of food any more. Only when I plan the weeks meals.
But I do find myself thinking what different exercise can I do that will help me tone up,and strengthen up. My new favorite TV channel is the Fit TV channel. They have so many fitness workout , that the choice is endless.
I like doing the routines in my home. If I can't keep up , its OK. When I come to parts that I try to do and they are still to hard for me, I just continue doing the part I can do. I will try the can't do part next time. maybe then I will be able to do it.
You don't have to be perfect, you don't always have to succeed, but you do have to try.
I leave you with Peace and Love, Tisha
