I Wanna Know
Happy St. Patrick's Day! I do have a bit 'o the Irish in my heritage so even though I have no plans to drink enough green beer to be drunk by noon, I do like to acknowledge by the wearing 'o the green. I was wondering what I'd come up with since green tends to be only a summer color for me and even then it's not the proper Irish green. I went digging in my summer clothing bin and found a tank with mixed greens that I layered with another black tank to raise neckline to an appropriate level for work. I added some green earrings I'd forgotten I had and this is what I came up with for today:
Hoping for the Luck of the Irish!
Ironic to me how one can see something on a daily basis and not pay it one bit of attention and then suddenly you actually see it. I had that experience yesterday going up and down the stairs at work. We don't even have an elevator in my building but I also choose to park on the lowest level so everyday I walk 4 flights of stairs to get to my office. One of the things I pass just before I got through a door that puts me on my office's floor is a bulletin board set up by Human Resources. It has the usual announcements and mandatory postings on it. I think passing it every day makes me immune to it. Perhaps because I was in a reflective mood over several things, I actually saw and paid attention to one of the posters. At the top it said,
Goals begin with a dream, success requires a plan
I saw and I started thinking. Lately I feel like I've been sort of floating around plan-less which is making my focus feel blurry.
Now, I'm not usually one to ask a bunch of questions here on Doing A 180 because I try to write here for myself. While I truly adore the fact that many folks take the time to comment, I never want to 'assume' thereby turning the blog outwards as if I expect that people are reading it.
But today, today I'm going to do it. If you normally lurk, please delurk and jump in with your truth, because I really wanna know:
When you are in successful weight loss mode, what is your plan? What are you doing?
What does your exercise and eating look like?
If you are in maintenance now, I still wanna know what you did to get there. If you have a blog and perhaps have a tab that has your plan, please put a link in your comments and don't recreate the wheel here, okay? But please tell me because I wanna know.
P.S. Be nice, don't diet bash and don't bash each other - we all have different journeys. If I see any meanness, I will delete!
