One of those days

Friday was a heck of a day.  I did it to myself.  

First, I got to see the amount of money I put on a CC for living expenses in a year.  The amount was nauseating.  I haven’t quite decided what to do about that part, but it will be about becoming more intentional about when I spend and updating some habits that I have. I’ve been reading the 30 day money cleanse. Hopefully that will give me some ideas.

Second, I got to see my current weight.  Now this was not the weight I tend to take.  i.e. Naked and right when I get up.  So I tell myself that the clothing I was wearing must be at least 50 pounds.  Not.  Sigh. Yes, it is just a number, but I have a number that when I am more than that number I feel bad.

I decided that my new mantra is:  This is my body and I want to treat it lovingly.  That phrase resonated with me.  

Now I need to decide what that means practically.  How do I accomplish this?  I know I’m not at this guy’s level, but maybe I can get closer to that ideal. Maybe this is a more Whole 30 approach to my eating.

What do you do when life hits you with numbers where it hurts?

  1. I’m not at that guys level either. Who is? I have a goal to lose 20 pounds before my birthday this month. I started off right but I lost my way. It makes me feel better when I look at the recorded weight on my app…the measurement when I was on track. Reality doesn’t matter as long as I can see that GOOD number.

    • I think I have to have a habit reboot. To yiur point about getting off track. So it is easier to get to where I want to go. The other thing, my mental image of myself has not kept up. So that number was like looking in the mirror and maybe seeing closer to reality.
