My tea towel has been returned. I love speaking up for myself. It works. I think my main problem with speaking my mind most times is not that I won’t/can’t do it but that I don’t know my mind. That makes it hard.
I also spoke up to my hairdresser because my red highlights have completely washed out! She asked me what shampoo I used then said Pantene was the absolute worst! I bet if I’d said Loreal or Garnier or whatever, she’d have said the same. I know reds never last long but it’s only been a week. What makes it worse is that I paid extra for a treatment to make them last longer.
Today I registered for the Queen of the Lake fun run. It’s the weekend before the City 2 Surf but I figure I’ll be running anyway so I might as well do it. This is the first time I’ve registered for a fun run as a runner not a walker. Even when I’ve intended running, I’ve registered as a walker in past fun runs so I don’t come dead last. Not this time.
Oh yeah, I have a question (or two):
Have you ever changed your weigh in day? And if so, why?
Do you think it’s made a difference to your attitude?
The reason I ask is that lately I’ve been eating far, far, far too much on the weekends. I’ve never been a weekend eater before but now it’s getting out of hand. I’m thinking if I change my weigh in day from Friday then I won’t have that feeling of the weekend being free time. At the moment, free time = Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
I thought I’d change to Sunday morning but would like to know I can go out and have dinner or a few drinks on Saturday nights — I mean you can’t be a stick in the mud *all* the time — so a Saturday morning weigh in would stop the Friday binges, give me Saturday night as free night (which is when I intend doing my long runs so will need a few extra calories) and I want to do a low calorie day on Sundays (which happens to be my exercise rest day).
Sounds good on paper – well, monitor – but I’d like to know how it’s worked for other people. Is it one of those mind games that helps you do better or is it just like rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic?
