The cookies, kombucha, almond butter, and yogurt from this post are already GONE. In fact, most of it has already been replenished, minus the cookies. They didn’t last but 5 days. In fact, I’ve thrown everything else in the cupboard without a look back. Talk about embarrassing. I’ve started rationing my almond butter, in effort to make it last a little longer, and also to not stuff my face with it. The cookies, while amazing, I decided not to buy for awhile, because that’s just a disaster waiting to happen. Of course, I look at this stuff and get pissy at myself for letting it get that far, knowing it’s affecting my training. It’s an ugly circle.
I can hear my mother saying “Micki – everything in moderation. Too much is bad, too little is bad” *sigh*
Luckily, I catch on to these things early, and I slam the brakes. Ironically, or maybe fate, Lindsay started blogging about spring cleaning lately. A light bulb went off in my head. Micki, STOP IT. Stop the negativity, stop beating yourself up for eating too much greek yogurt. Seriously. There are bigger fish to fry.
This sounds ridiculous and silly, but I’m thinking about hiding/removing the batteries from the scale. I rely on that number way too much, and it affects my outlook on a lot. That’s not the way I was raised! That’s not what I need to rely on for personal happiness!
I know I’ve come to this conclusion numerous times, maybe the more I tell myself these things, the more I’ll start believing!
Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming…
HAPPY FRIDAY, Y’ALL!
