I did REALLY well giving up sugar for 6 weeks. Insanely surprisingly well!! I've never had such an easy time and I wish I knew what made it so easy this time. I even lost weight and that almost never happens. I got a little off track with a month-long visit from the family and some other things (dog had to have emergency surgery last week and that affected the whole week's schedule and routine) but this week I really thought I could get back on track.
I was passing by a friend's office the other day (I'm doing some work in the building where she works) and her door was open so I stuck my head in to say hello. She greeted me by holding up her green smoothie. I said I was also drinking smoothies this week because it's really dang hot and the idea of cooking or eating something hot is too much. She mentioned better eating and I said I had done really well for 6 weeks. Anyway, just that little 5-minute chat was enough to help me power through some stress and exhaustion (hello unexpected )11 hour work day without grabbing some junk to eat.
Sometimes it doesn't take much to get or keep yourself on plan. I mean, let's face it, sometimes you need an ocean between you and the stuff you want to stay away from. But sometimes just a very small thing can be all you need to keep your motivation up. YAY for small victories!
Today is International Day of Yoga. The plan was to attend an event downtown but it starts at 1930 and ends at 2030 and I'm usually crawling into bed about that time. So as much as I want to go, I think I do some mental yoga as I attempt to wrap my brain around my Italian lesson :) Happy International Day of Yoga!
