Yep, today was the day…the day where the good mood endorphins and the emotional high of the New Years Resolutions comes to a crashing halt. I’d been so together for the past to weeks…I’d been keeping focused at work and really making an effort and trying to keep things in perspective.
Today, I let myself get overwhelmed and the bad attitude came right back. I thought it’d take longer, but it was like a comfortable old coat…so simple to ease back into. I’m trying a new organizational system at work and it’s great, because it helps me to be more efficient, but it requires a lot of multitasking and there’s no discernable finish anymore, so there’s no feeling of accomplishment. And the tasks can pile up really fast, which they started to do. Add a few meetings to that mix, plus the start of the semester and trying to look over the coursework for my new classes, and it was a recipe for disaster today.
Cabbage and rice? Epic dinner FAIL. Bleh. It was pretty tasteless and just kind of gross. And we have a whole pot of it. So, I had a grilled cheese sandwich and some grits. I didn’t really want the grits, so that was another fail. And, I misjudged the amount of cheese I was going to need for the week so Joey is going to have to go back out and get some.
It’s not a big deal…we only spent $38 yesterday, so we’re WELL below the budget, which is awesome, but I’m just ticked at myself that I talked this big game about meal planning and didn’t bother to take a good look at the amount of cheese we’ve got and plan accordingly.
And I punked out on the gym again.
All of these things are no big deal…just get back on the horse tomorrow…plow through the work and do what I can do…read the stuff I need to read for class and start to organize myself…find some way to repurpose the cabbage fail…and go to the gym tomorrow.
It’s all good. I think I have to splurge a little and skip the gym just to I know how bad I want to meet my goal. You will be back and stronger next go round. 😉
Thanks for the encouragement. I’ll definitely be hitting the gym tonight!!
