Moving that rubber tree plant

Friday, June 05, 2015

Tonight I've got the "High Hopes" lyrics floating around in my head. They're silly lyrics but still somehow motivating and reassuring in their familiarity.

I've been sitting here not quite moping but sort of dwelling on the tedium of tracking and counting and planning and refraining and tracking and counting and planning and refraining .... I know I'm reaping the benefits of better health because of it but some days it is a bit wearying. And then those silly ant moving rubber trees lyrics popped into my head. I guess I'm feeling a bit like the ant. I need to keep my eye on the results and not dwell so much on the effort, I guess.

    Awww.....that was a song my "other mother" used to sing all the time, in her terrible voice. Thanks for the reminder of the sweet memory. I will have this song in my head all day now!

    I get it, I sometimes get a little annoyed and tell my husband this healthy eating business is a lot of work, it takes a lot of time, planning , prepping, counting, tracking. But the mood does not last long and 99.9% of the time I don't even think about it anymore. But once in a while, yes, it seem tedious. Just keep going and it will pass. There is too much a stake to toss it! --Pam
