This weekend, the laundry didn’t get done.
Dirty dishes are sitting in the sink.
I didn’t prep all my meals for the week.
I never made it to the gym.
Lunches were thrown together quickly.
Blueberries were eaten straight from the container.
I stayed out way too late, but saw views like this:
This weekend I escaped from the usual stress and responsibilities of daily life.
Right into the clouds.
And up into the mountains of Harriman State Park.
I have the tendency to not want to diverge from my usual path.
Sticking firm to a routine has gotten to where I am now.
When you set out to lose weight, you have to say “no” to a lot of things.
“No thanks, I’ll just have water.”
“No, I don’t want a piece of cake.”
“No, I’m going to stay in and cook dinner.”
“No, I have to get up early to work out.”
But because of all those “no’s,” I felt confident saying “yes” to everything this weekend.
I don’t worry anymore that I won’t be able to keep up with a night of walking around the city.
I don’t worry anymore that I won’t have the endurance to make it through a long hike in the woods.
I’ve taken on a lot more responsibilities as a result of my desire to get healthy, but it also means that I get to take on life, and it’s given me the confidence that I can handle wherever it goes.
” Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend. Non-being is the greatest joy.” – Lao Tzu
