Determined Good Day

Yesterday was a day where I felt really bad about myself, stupid decisions I make, and life in general. I did my best to be upbeat about it all and I feel like for once, I actually did okay.

It helped that I had good people and projects to help me through. 

I walked four miles with my dad and we talked about everything to the Christmas present he was getting from me. (He figured out what it was. Bummer that it's not a surprise, but he's still thrilled.)

I had a two hour phone conversation with my sister. We talked about life and boys and laughed a lot. 

I finished (or did all I can do at this point) two of the three for all of the Christmas presents I'm giving this year. 

And I managed to mostly right my sleep schedule by sleeping nearly through the night.

I woke up this morning feeling refreshed. 

And for the first time in a very long time, I felt determined

Determined to have a good day today. I refuse to sulk even though it's so much easier to do so.

Determined to get a lot done. Clean my room spotless. Walk with my dad. Break out Jillian Michaels and exercise my over-sized booty off.

Determined to just feel good about myself. And to be honest, I think it will be easy. I'm looking and feeling great.  I gained about 8 pounds in November with all of my sadness and the holidays. On December 2nd, I decided that I would be 165 pounds by Christmas. I kind of laughed at myself and told myself how impossible it was to lose 13 pounds in less than a month. In the past eight days, I've lost six pounds. I'm feeling great, looking great, and feel determined to keep losing that weight. Only seven pounds to go, and fifteen days to do it in!

I feel happy and refuse to let anything get to me today. Today is going to be amazing. I'm determined to make it so!

Congrats to you for your success and determination. I've been dealing with my self-determination lately. I think I'm making my resolutions a little bit early...


I'm glad you took back the day. Keep it up!

Hi Kate. (Hee hee)

I wanted to let you know that this post inspired me. After a tough week or two of battling some major depression crap, I read your post and felt rejuvenated. Thank you.

You're the best!
