First, off, big congrats to my bloggy friends who have completed their April Whole30! Yayyy!
Nicely done, ladies!
It’s Wednesday already, and I have yet to recap my weekend. So here it is:
I did nothing.
I did work out Saturday, but I didn’t do my long run. Instead I watched a lot of “Archer” reruns, played with Squishy at the park, and took naps. No chores or laundry, no food prep.
I think I was a little hung-over with lazy, because I could not drag my butt out of bed Monday. Or Tuesday. I think I’m just in the crummy craps that come more routinely than I like to admit or realize. So I made it to the gym this morning, am watching my veggie and caffeine intake, and batting down the hatches for the rest of the week.
I was browsing some blogs that I recently added to my reading list (um, I’ve added a LOT. I’m a wee behind right now!) and I stumbled on Cave Girl Eats. I’m a huge fan of the Balanced Bites podcast but had yet to peruse the blogs. Liz had an awesome post on successful habits. The one that struck a major cord with me was Habit#3 Be Patient and Persistent. Liz says,
Giving up or giving in to frustration is Diet behavior. Patience and persistence is lifestyle behavior.
I am not patient. Once I decide to change, I expect results NOW. I’m sure no one ever has that problem but me. But the changes I want to make (i.e. not being such a Candy Whore) are a new lifestyle I want to adopt. There is no “giving up”; the only failure is to not try again.
Oh, by the way, Happy May Whole30, Day 1! 🙂
