Thanks for talking me through that moment today. You know… the doughnut moment.
I am trying to figure out why I wanted that thing so badly. Usually, I refer to them as “sugary rings of death” and can stay away. Today, it was harder.
I was a little stressed out about some work deadlines. I had a jumble of a start and stop kind of day.
I think that may have been it. I was stressed.
Saying it, or in this case, writing it is providing me with a reference point for my “doughnut moment”. I have to fess up that my exercise level has dropped considerably since my “Biggest Loser” contest has ended at the gym. I sometimes can’t understand why I am more committed to other people first, then myself?
I LOVED being part of a team. I loved pulling my weight (no pun…ok. A little pun intended) and helping us win the competition. I was so psyched to be on a team that I forgot to also be an individual. I lost focus on my initial intention of working on myself and making strides towards a more sustainable and healthy lifestyle.
I think, as I write this I am figuring out that I need to recommit to myself first. And in almost all aspects of my life.
I am really glad that I passed up that doughnut. And not only because I got the new gym bag.
