The Post It Always Sticks Twice
Today's #HAWMC prompt is to visit Things We Forgot, and create our own healthy reminder It is probably too small to read, but the image above is of the post-it I created just now and stuck on my computer screen. It says:
"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got."
A good reminder for a rainy gloomy weekend like this -- yesterday I was up early as usual, cleaned the house from top to bottom while The Hubs worked on cleaning / organizing the yard and garage. By 5 PM I was so tired I could have fallen asleep... but we pressed on; went out for a late dinner / date night, and then I was dead asleep around midnight. In between 5 PM and our late date (9 PM?), there was a whole lotta laundry, and a whole lotta sofa-surfing, remote in hand.
Since today is Gloomsville, Part 2, the note is a reminder that while the weather outside is frightful, I have a treadmill in my cozy basement calling my name. I can make a different and better choice today, and be rewarded for it tomorrow. If it is a reminder for ME, I should leave it stuck to my laptop or mirror -- two of the first things I see each morning -- but I'm also tempted to bring it with me to the grocery store and hide it somewhere in an aisle of junk food, hoping that somebody else will stumble on the bit of wisdom and make a better choice.
It is 7:30 AM. The dishwasher is running. My blog is updated. I'm making a grocery list. Then grocery store, workout, meeting with realtors, laundry, and the rest of the day remains to be seen!
Off and running,
