I'm feeling pretty good this week. Why?
Well, for starters I'm eating well. After my cake eating binge on Sunday (literally ate half a lemon sour cream cake dripping with sugar syrup mmmmm) I've sworn off wheat and sugar and dairy for two weeks and now, three days into it, I'm feeling strong and proud and fine and dandy.
Secondly I'm moving my body and getting into nature regularly. I'm doing yoga at home still - yes! I'm going for walks around the hills in my neighbourhood with my girlfriends. I'm running around after my kids as per usual. And I'm attending my regular Tuesday night yoga class.
Thirdly I'm forcing myself to get more organised and focused on my new writing project rather than spend my down time during the day watching Netflix.
All of these things are contributing to me feeling great!
Clever, functional, healthy, positive thinking, forward moving Mrs D. Aaaahhh the joy in being so very successful.
Problem is, in two weeks time all of this could have gone to shit. I could be binging on the sugar again, spending far too much time watching tele, turning down offers to walk, failing to do any yoga at home and generally just wallowing in my piggy, lazy, unhealthy mindset.
If only I could be consistent!!!!! If only I could maintain a perfect perfect lifestyle 100% of the time.
Sadly that is not my reality. Consistency is not my strong point.
But you know what? I can't be bothered worrying about that right now. For fucks sake, I accept who I am, cake-binging warts and all. If I slump into a pit of lazy despair in a few weeks so be it. Knowing me I'll lift up again afterwards and end up feeling like I do now. That's how I roll.
I'm a work in progress.. not a problem to be solved. And of course there is one MAJOR thing that I am able to remain consistent at, and that is not drinking alcohol ever. If this the only thing I ever manage to stay consistent at for the rest of my life then that's ok with me.
Love, Mrs D xxx
