Winning, not whining

Rather than dwell on the fact that right now is the first time today I've been able to do something I want to do, rather than the million and one things I needed to do, or that my eyes are hanging out of my head (and it's only a bit after 9:30pm) here's my "win list" for the day:

1. Food has been totally on-track. Well, there was that one triangle of Toblerone, but that tiny amount hardly even counts, right?

2. I woke up feeling dog-tired this morning, AND it was raining. I could have used that as an excuse to blow off my run, but instead I muttered "it's not raining at the GYM". I then hauled my butt out of bed at 5:15am and trekked off to do it on the tready.

3. I had time up my sleeve when I finished my intervals, so did some brisk incline walking for a bonus 15 minutes.

4. Through a series of coincidences, I have the opportunity to help a woman who's in dire need of some assistance with mindset and motivation. It's one of those "meant to be" stories: she saw an article in a magazine that she never usually buys, about a woman who lost weight with the help of a fantastic online trainer ...who happened to be my good friend Debbie Rossi. She contacted Debs, who saw that she was from Melbourne and rang me to check if I was able to do some one-on-one work with her. After getting the woman's permission to pass her details onto me, I read her email and discovered that she works for the same employer as me. In the same building. On the same floor. I'm really looking forward to giving her a hand up on her journey - she has a few challenges ahead, but I'm sure she'll make it. :o)

5. Even though I was feeling under pressure, I made a tasty dinner tonight, packed the leftovers for Bike Boy's lunch tomorrow, plus threw together some pancakes for one of my snacks tomorrow, AND a batch of mini frittatas for future meals. And I have all my food packed, ready to toss in my "lunchbox" in the morning. I love it when I'm well organised.

6. I took my supplements! Hallelujah! Haven't done that in a while.....

7. Even though I procrastinated madly, I actually did get my Pilates workout done.

8. Tomorrow I'm having a chocolate souffle for breakfast. :o)

Procrastinate?? You?? I didn't think it was possible. lol

I'm with you on the whiney posts, just leave them to the 'poor me' people of blogworld.

Kerryn do you go to a Pilates class or do you use a Pilates DVD? I want to incorporate Pilates into my week still...

Hang in there, just the process of having a couple of good organised days in a row will see the winning come out on top over the whining.

After training so hard for so long for competition and all the excitement that went with it I am not surprised that you are a little low right now, but of all the bloggers I read you are the most reliable for getting back in the saddle and making positives out of the negatives.

Take care :-)
