Laziness Is A Figment Of My Imagination

November 20, 2010 at 11:25 am 10 comments

Saturday!  A chance to sleep in a little later, and be more relaxed.  As a kid, it was my favourite morning – all the best cartoons were on and we got to eat our cereal in front of the TV!

However, I feel as though except for Tuesday, it’s been a lazy week for me. Sure, I’ve had some excitement, the new KitchenAid mixer I bought was delivered, and of course, there’s the infamous knife incident, but on the whole, I’ve felt pretty lazy this week.

Here’s the interesting thing though.  When I first woke up this morning, I thought that by my laziness this week, I wouldn’t see movement on the scale, and if I did, it would be upwards.   But, I stopped and realized that except for the tootsie rolls I ate to cheer myself up after cutting my finger, I had still made good choices this week and stayed within my calorie goals.  And my laziness?  Well, I thought I had been lazy by not going to the fitness club, but I had cleaned my house, and had still walked to work.  You see, there are those old negative thinking points trying to sabotage me again.  “If you don’t complete what you set out to do, you’re just being lazy” I’ll always love you mom and dad, but those words aren’t going to shape my life anymore. I may not be perfect, but I’m certainly NOT lazy.

While I’m trying not to let the scale influence my journey, it WAS exciting this morning to see it go down 1.6 lbs!   🙂





And lazy was probably the last word I would have used on Tuesday with my personal trainer Deb Taylor!

Do you have negative thinking points that can sabotage you?  How do you erase them?

Have a great weekend everyone!

    You took me back to happy days when saturday mornings were cartoon mornings. Ah (sigh as facing 50 wishes she was young again)
    Well done on losing some more weight. It’s always a sense of achievement.

      I always loved that feeling of Saturday morning cartoons, and completely revisited it when my kids were little. Bugs Bunny was and still is my favourite. I often watch teletoons retro just to get that warm homey feeling!
