I came home from work with every intention of going to the gym for water aerobics. I even put on my bathing suite before deciding I just didn't want to go. A couple of little, hurtful things from the day had continued to chew at me allowing the malaise to overtake me. Malaise - 1, Amy - 0.
As I laid on the couch in my pjs, regretting my decision, several thoughts went through my head - pizza, ice cream, cupcakes, cheese burgers, etc. Even though my brain was telling me to give up and that I really needed to have all that fattening food, I didn't. I have ACTUALLY conditioned myself well enough to realize when my emotions are telling me to do something stupid AND to listen to myself! I couldn't help but smile to myself as I resisted.
