30-Day Discipline Experiment – Day 23

Man it feels like hump day–like this 30-day experiment has been going on for a long time!  The lesson here is that even health professionals get tired of wellness at times.  Sometimes we just wish that life was easier.  Better.  And that we could eat anything we want.  And eat as much as we want.  And lay on the couch and watch movies.  We think about this fantasy life where we don’t need to cut the grass, pay bills, and make dinner after a long day of work.

But then the next day comes and we feel invigorated again and ready to get back to the program.  At least that’s what we do if we don’t sink into guilt and self-abuse over being tired and moody occasionally.  The longer we stay in a place of guilt and negative self-talk, the harder it is to get back to a healthy, happy lifestyle.  I know because I’ve experimented with that too :)  So don’t let yourself slip too far down the pity path.  Give yourself a mini vacation from your goals and responsibilities, and get back at your healthy living plan as soon as you possibly can–hopefully the very next day.

If we accept our moodiness as a part of life–the ebbs and flows–then it’s no big deal when a day feels a little hard.  Because we know that the ebb will be finished soon and the flow is on its way. 

As for myself, I’ve done my little to-do list of tasks today and now am going to spend the rest of the evening reading my new book:  The Mars & Venus Diet & Exercise Solution:  Create the Brain Chemistry of Health, Happiness, and Lasting Romance.  (I’d buy it used!)

What do you do to get past hump day?
