I lost track of how long ago I put myself on a “you don’t need fixing” diet and turned off a sources of media to that implied I could be better in some way.
The most noticeable result is that I spend less time mindlessly following links. Another result is that a feel a teeny tiny bit less stressed about how I’m going to fix myself.
This doesn’t mean that I don’t spend almost every waking moment thinking of some scheme about how to effortlessly lose weight. Nor does it mean that I’m still not wanting to join the local Barre3 studio when I KNOW I won’t go. But I’m not obsessed by it
And it does mean I’ve finally finished the yak cowl and I’ve read a book.
And I’m still thinking of ways to give myself a break. I think one of the biggest breaks I’ve given myself this year is permission to not worry about Christmas and the holidays. I’m not in the mood and my husband isn’t in the mood. We’ve bought a few gifts, but there will be no baking unless the mood strikes; no parties; no decorations, etc.
We will though become a bit more introspective. We’ll have more evenings listening to music in candlelight. Quiet, peaceful time.
