learning to control the weekend
Friday, March 06, 2015
i had another great epiphany this morning. my weekends lay the groundwork for my week ahead. if my weekend is good my week is good. and vice versa.
i've had so many bad weekends in the last few months. busy, lazy, holidays, birthday, plans, etc. there has just been something going on for so long. i've had this mindset where i didn't have a great saturday or sunday (or both) and i'd try to turn things around on monday. by wednesday i'd have a loss of motivation and think that since i've already messed up i may as well just try again next week. i kept thinking that last week and then reminding myself that no, my weekend was perfect, keep going. and i lost 4 pounds. this past saturday wasn't great, but it wasn't bad, but i fell back into that mindset and messed up my week. even though it wasn't destroyed completely by the weekend. this weekend i have no plans. i can get back on track and have a great week. i need to learn to fix this issue before summer comes and my life is one busy weekend after another.
i feel these thoughts have become a habit and an excuse. i have to work on getting a new mindset. hopefully since i've discovered the issue i can work on resetting it.
