Have you ever done everything right food and exercise-wise and still have one of those days when you just feel yucky about yourself? I had one of those today. I overslept (different from sleeping in) and hardly got anything done, my face is completely breaking out, "bad hair day" doesnít begin to describe the mess I ended up with on my head
, I worked out but Iíve felt tired since instead of energized, and Iím not quite back into the pants I wanted to wear even though I was sure they would fit.
But what does make me feel good is that I didnít seek out my comfort foods
, didnít overeat, and didnít slack off my exercise as I absolutely would have done a few months ago (I used to find few things more soothing than a big bowl or three of Rocky Road you-know-what).
What I did do was give myself a pedicure and paint my toenails (reaching said toes without straining is something I couldnít do a month ago), made a fancy salad for dinner, and cleaned my house (I know, that doesnít sound fun, but I feel better about myself when Iím not in a messy house). And at 9 Iím going to watch some trash TV. (Desperate Housewives, a guilty pleasure if there ever was one!!
What good things do you do for yourself when youíre having one of those I-donít-feel-pretty days? They might come in handy if things donít improve tomorrow!
