Have you ever heard the phrase “Acceptance is the key”?
I believe this to be 100% accurate. Yesterday I was in a TERRIBLE mood. My bad mood caused stress, which caused me to stress-eat, feel terrible, and not work out. But guess what? Today is a do over. Absolutely nothing has changed except my state of mind.
I decided I needed to get off my pity pot and move on. I can’t change anything except my thoughts and actions, so that’s what I did today. I had a great workout at lunch, ate a healthy lunch, and have been rocking out to Miley Cyrus. I also applied to two jobs today. I figure until I have accepted a position I need to keep at it.
My healthy lunch: roasted carrots and a Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Chicken burger on a sandwich thin
I feel 1000x better today than yesterday. I think sometimes you just need to have a bad day to appreciate all the good ones.
I started the couch to 5k training program over again. For those keeping track, this is the third time I have started this program and I still have not completed a 5k…but hey! at least I am still trying.
I think the scale is going to go up again this week, but I have recommited to eating healthy and taking care of my whole self. There have just been a few speed bumps this week, which is ok. Progress, not perfection.
Peace and Love,
