Happy St. Patrick's Day to all,
Can't wait till I have a green beer in hand, it's so Friday today isn't it?
Have a pretty low point day planned so I can enjoy a libation and maybe some fries...don't know if that qualifies as Irish but I'll just role with it.

NSV for me today. Was going to wear I skirt I really like, haven't worn it in quite some time. Put it on and it was way too big. So great but sad... I really like that skirt. It will encourage me to remember how to use a sewing machine.

Read quite a few blogs today and one theme stuck in my head. Falling off the wagon, being so on plan (no matter what plan you're following) only to sabotage yourself. Why is it that we're so hard on ourselves? I'm totally guilty of that as well, I'll often stop and think why am I getting so worked up over one day or one week when I know I'm going to have to commit to this healthy lifestyle for the rest of my life. We are such a complicated species with our obsessions over body image and what other people might think of us. Are super confidant people like that too and just hide it better? Is there a switch that turns on or off?

I suppose I'm just rambling but it's that kind of day :)

Congrats on the skirt being to big! Sorry it's one of your favs.

Have a good weekend. :)

You know, I have no idea why we're so hard on ourselves - I'm working on that. Though, today has been a very off day for me..

I think it's been up and down emotionally, and so I've fallen into bad habits because of it - it's my first bad day since I started my new lifestyle though.. so I guess next time I'll try to change my reactions to the situation - one step at a time, one day at a time. Heh.
