I had a such great spark week that I almost managed to mess it up. I walked in to the nursing home with my little dog, and got a migraine. I cannot attribute this migraine to any of my known triggers - nicotein, (none) caffeine (no changes there), chocolate (none) , stress. Ohh! Yes.
I stressed myself by trying to fast forward into goals that need to stay in the future. I want more good weigh-ins, but I don't want to wait, I suppose. My brain is craving that fast reward, and not unlike the rat in the maze, I keep mentally hitting the reward bar, but no additional reward is available until time passes. I must have faith that my hard work will eventually pay out, and when it does not, I must still have faith. And still do the work; the planning, the exercising and practise restraint.
I still haven't done my happy-goal-met-dance, and for the benefit of reading this later, I'll just say.....
the happy dance was short and sweet. The dogs think they getting a treat, why not! Gree-nies!
