I mean did Home Depot nail it with that slogan, or what? So besides losing at least three dress sizes, I want to spend some time on the following:
- “Kondo-ing” my house
- learning to play my guitalele
- finishing a long list of home diy projects
- traveling more
No problem, right? Let’s see, what should I do tomorrow…Did you know people often overestimate what they can do in a day, but underestimate what they can do in a lifetime? I can’t remember where I read that, but it is always true about me.
Now I’m on day three of my health kick, so naturally my body decided to stage a minor revolt yesterday in the form of a major headache. I pictured tiny picketers stomping around my brain screaming, “WE WANT SUGAR!” and “BRING ON THE CAFFEINE!” I haven’t cut out caffeine. Do I look crazy? Don’t answer that. But the evil, delicious Coca Cola is sorely missed. My precious. Who said that? And I will drink it again, in spite of this. Did you enjoy that accent as much as I did?
I still don’t have a starting weight, either. As I said on Facebook the other day, when I tried to weigh myself on my digital scale, it just said “Lo”. “Why, thank you Mr. Scale. You think my weight is low? Don’t I look pretty today, too? Oh, your battery is low.” So I couldn’t get a reading, which I think proves the theory that God only gives you what you can handle. And of course, the scale takes some weird battery that I keep forgetting to buy every time I enter a retail establishment. Why can’t every device just use the same type of battery? Maybe God is behind this, too. I heard He works in mysterious ways. That is very mysterious, indeed.
I haven’t committed to a training regimen yet, but that’s the plan. So far I’ve just done a couple of grueling thirty minute elliptical workouts that felt like walking through quicksand. I’m trying not to be too hard on myself about this because I think strength training is where it’s at, and the elliptical is kind of a waste of time. But I guess it was challenging enough, because it was hard, you guys. It was harder than woodpecker lips.
