Life. How can I NOT laugh?
I have been VERY good with my eating today…well within my diet sized calorie intake. Healthy. Took the multivitamin. Drank the 8 H2O’s. Blah, blah…
So I gear up for a walk. I am listening to the 9/11 report while I walk for the first 25 minutes. Going around the block an extra time before stopping at Caffe Aroma for a DECAF coffee break and magazine session.
I think the DECAF cursed me.
I go to the magazine rack and find NOT ONE of my usual magazines that interests me. All my usual politicals are um, um somewhere. Only 2 magazines caught my eye. And this is shocking! Anything less than 10 is shocking. So?????
I picked up the book *Blink*
And I wasn’t too impressed. It is off my reading list.
I tried to find *The Artist’s Way* and they didn’t have it.
Ok, so now I am ready to leave the coffee/book shop and I turn on my CD player and…AND? Nothing. The CD player is not working. Um, ok. The batteries have been charged. I have no clue what the problem is. Blah.
Nice to know that when I am trying to be the Best Jen(nifer) EVER! I will stumble inadvertently along the way…oh well. I still got the walk in. Still got the damn crunches in. And now if I can only, ONLY hold myself away from food this evening all will be fine.
I found this inspiring, from SHAPE magazine “Waiting For Weight Loss”
“As I turned 33 I lost my father to lung cancer. In my sorrow over his premature death I had a revelation. If I was ever to write that novel, it had to be now. I quit my job I detested and began to write full time. And as the pages accumulated, an odd thing happened. My waist began to shrink…Now two years later and 30 pounds lighter, I realized that pursuing my dream gave me that renewed energy to take that extra walk, go skating with my friends and try new things just for fain…Although I still have 35 pounds to go, writing a novel is no longer a part of my imagined future. It is part of who I am today. And even if I’m not at my goal weight just yet, I’m no longer waiting for my live to begin either.”
