today is the day. last day of art month (boo!) and time to report on the month’s outcomes (yay!)
i’ll try to follow the same format as last time for the sake of consistency. and if you need a reminder about what all of this means, here’s the explanation from last month.
1. The conscious choice log. The following chart represents how many times I used the conscious choice log (a place where I would write down a choice to do a particular behavior–eat, sleep, email, watch tv, etc–and then come back and record the outcomes of that choice in an effort to become aware of how my choices impact the way i feel and interact with the world).
|oh yes, you’re seeing that right. ZERO.|
yep. As you may recall, last time I used it once… and this time I used it never. Honestly, I’m not sure how much to care about this. I mean, I feel like things are going well (I feel good more often than not), but then again… some of the other outcomes aren’t quite where I want them to be… I guess I really need to give it a shot to see if it has an effect before I can decide not to do it. Okay. Trying again (again).
I want to work on some other charts and collect more data, but as you can see… I’m not at my best today. I’m pretty wiped out and am very aware of how much unknown there is in my future. While that’s always true (that the future is unknown) for all of us, I don’t usually notice it and am not as afraid of it as a result. Today I’m choosing to remain in the unknown, but it hurts. I don’t like it.
Last but not least… My ass. A new picture is up over there –> and (drumroll please!)
I weigh the same as I did this time last month… (trumpets start to blare and them fizzle out)
Same weight doesn’t always mean same ass but this isn’t one of those “muscle weighs more than fat moments.” in fact, I think this month’s ass might be a little lumpier than last. I went to bed at 8pm many nights this month because I was sick or otherwise exhausted and while that means I watched a lot less television, my physical activity time was my tv time and I slept through them both. My diet was mostly the same, but without any mini elliptical and leg lifts… Lumpy ass reappeared.
let’s all say it together: “my body is perfect for what i am here to do and learn”
one thing worth noting. we (and I mean that… i’m not using the “royal we”) had our first stranger like us on facebook this month. woot! welcome stranger!
On to the next month!
