This is my first post-magazine/tv post and it's going to be a total dud. I have a cold, I have my period and I'm crampy, and in a bad mood - which is not helped by my lack of exercise and crappy food choices. Need I say more?
Truth is, there's not much more to say than that. I have a terrible cough and runny nose and I figure rest is better than pushing myself right now and possibly getting sicker. But sitting on my rump can make me grumpy all by itself. Add to that eating fast food for lunch two days in a row, WAY too many cookies - yes, yes, I did that - and the cramps...I'm sorry to anybody new here, you might not find this post all that motivating. This sort of thing happens here from time-to-time.
In fact, I should know the cycle. Something happens, I don't exercise for a while, or I make a series of poor food choices, I start thinking a lot of negative thoughts, and then I unload in a blog post about how crappy everything is and how I'm not on a good path and blah, blah, blah. Inevitably - and usually within only a few days (but sometimes weeks) - I eventually snap out of it and write a post about how "I'm back!" and feeling great again, making good food choices, exercising, feeling totally awesome.
Blech, whatever. Today is not that day. There's no totally and there's no awesome. I know the timing is bad, what with the magazine coming out today and the show(s) yesterday. Oh, I didn't tell you, I was also on The Insider.
Yeah, listen to what she said about how it's worth it and all. Oh wait, that was me.
Ok, even though I'm grouchy and negative, I do still know it's worth it. I fought for this body (and mental change) and I will continue to fight. Just not today. Got no fight in me today. And the good news is, you don't have to always have it to be successful. There it is, my motivational message mixed in with all the bad-mood-ness. You can still be you. You don't have to become some perfect version of you to be successful.
