These are my shirts, just drying in the summer sun.
My "boring" summer challenge is now well underway. You don't remember a challenge? I guess it was so boring and low-key that I forgot to mention it. Boring in a "good " way.
The challenge that wasn't there.
The challenge, for me, is this - a year from now, I will look back on THIS summer and say that THIS was the most boring summer ever!
This will be the summer that I made it happen!
No drama, no meltdowns (other than the summer heat!) No bingeing. No screaming at the Universe "Why did I eat that ...again?" No reasons to cheat - when in the end, I only cheat myself. (yeah, in the "end" lol)
By now, it's not all about the weight loss. One pound, or twenty. I just want to "eat the right thing." This is a long-term lifestyle change for me. Not a summer project.
Bouncing on the rebounder even when I would rather do something else. Eating my eggs-n-stuff even when I would rather have something else. Getting enough sleep at night instead of staying up late. You know, those kind of changes. Wholesome? Goal-directed?
I am learning to increase my tolerance for frustration. And learning impulse control. So far, so *yawn* good!
