Well - my food today wasn't much better - but I have to say that this afternoon the "paperwork gawds" gave me a break and I managed to do some (very not work related) work done, on me.
I sat and read up on some weight loss blogs, read up about fibre & waters role in weight lose, the BMR and RMR, and a bunch of other very simple yet effective, yet so bloody simple things that you must do to get your body burning fat and getting lean. And a few things about the mental side of these kinds of things.
For three hours I sat in my little office space and thought about me, and all the reasons that I've been do down on myself and what that might really be about and why I had such an out of sorts day - and how ALL THOSE THINGS ARE CONNECTED. I don't have any reason to be so hard on myself.
I'd been meaning/talking about doing a running room clinic for a while, so I went to their website - looked for a clinic that is starting and then went over right after work and signed up. (see post below) Take.My.Money!
When 5 o'clock came, I popped out of my chair like a new human! I had a spring to my step - I know that I can do this. I have it locked down. Now is not the time to stop, now is the time to press EVEN harder in the direction that I want to go. :) Then I went to perv blogs tonight and right there... on Jens blog was a cartoon of the very thing that I was experiencing... (I'm going to steal her cartoon here), now that I've crawled most of the way up - I can't stop.
Anyway - she does a much better post about it - so go read hers!! :)
