What Have I Learned?
I have done really well about exercising and eating right. Honestly, by now I have already cheated or munched my way through something that I know is sooo bad for me. I know that this is really for me. I have been writing to other people on "Spark People" that have some of the same issues that I do. I have found groups that I feel as though I have common traits. I even went to Mass.
So, often I skip Mass. I see the same people Monday through Friday when I go pick up my kids, so for a while I just wanted to have the whole weekend away from everyone except my family. There was a time when I loved going to Mass, but I did not like it when it seemed as though it was more of a chore than time out of my day I felt spiritually closer to God. Oh sure, I used to....but I think a lot of it has been that I have let my fat get in my way. What does that mean? It was an excuse for me. None of my clothes fit me any longer. I just have not felt closer to anyone being rounder.
Yesterday, I did feel good about Mass. I wore an outfit that was not my favorite, but I made the best of it. I even slammed on some war paint. (make up)
I have learned that I can not watch television after I drop off the kids. It is like poison gets inside my body, and I can't move. I can't get up to exercise or do all the other things that I need to do. I think this is going to be my magical blogging time. I think I miss the sound of a social atmosphere going on in my house. That is what the television provides for me.
I like working out before I have my breakfast.
I call my mom and talk to her on face time as I put away the dishes. I hate holding the phone between my head and my shoulder.
Alright, it is getting close to my "goal" work out time.
Have a super great day.
Have you learned anything new about yourself this year?
