Make it Good!

I think I've decided that I'm going to make today a good day.  Power of positive thinking, huh?  I do think there is something to this though.  Within reason.  You can only control what you can control.

Some things that I can control:
1. My mood.
2. My food.
3. My exercise.

My mood is slightly on the irritated side this morning due to a slight (ever so slight) spat with Matt last night.  Nothing major at all. Just irritating.  So I could be grumpy about it all day.  I could let that control my emotions.  But if I do that, I may dig into unwanted food due to emotional eating and I definitely do NOT want that.  So, I'm going to not let my mood get the better of me.  I'm going to try to make it a good one.  Fake it until you make it, right?

My food.  The last few days were slightly off track.  I can blame the blizzard.  I can blame my crappy work.  I can blame anything I want to.  But what good will that get me.  So today, I'm going to make it a good food day.  There is a container of delicious candy sitting on the desk across from me, just eyeing me!  "You want me! You need me!"  The candy says.  I say "Heck No!"  lol.  So I'm not going to touch a single piece of candy.  And I will make healthy, conscience decisions about my food all day today.

My exercise.  I always exercise on Friday's (except when I have to go to the airport for Matt, or I'm flying to Omaha).  In which case, I'll get up a half hour early and ride my stationary bike.  But there is an awesome kickboxing class that I go to on Friday's.  Today is that day!  I would normally go to this weights/abs class afterwards, but I haven't been feeling his style on that lately.  I feel that I'm not getting the most out of it.  So if I don't go to his 2nd class, I will do weights and abs on my own.  I still have a slight soreness to my back but I think I will be ok.  I'll listen to my body and see what feels right.

So that's my plan today.  I'm making it a good day.  I think I'm on track to lose a few pounds at my weigh in tomorrow, which will be a welcome change.  I have only gained weight since the beginning of December!

Thanks again to Jodi at Run Jodi Run for letting me be on her blog yesterday.  You can check that post out here!

Anyone have any plans this weekend?  I don't.  My only plans are to try to clean up my house a little bit and to get my flat tire fixed.  It's gonna be a fun weekend!!  lol


  1. My plans are taxes and basketball for the kids! Good Goal!

  2. I like your positive thinking, Amanda! Hang in there...things will get better!!!
