ANGEL v THE DEVIL

It was such a relief this morning not to have to get up and get ready for work.I only have 4 days off but I'm determined to get some long overdue things done.Today hubby was off work as well and I convinced him to make a start on cutting down a nearly dead wattle tree we have in our front garden. While he did that I got on the mattock and fork and started weeding the garden. It was hard yakka I can tell you and I only managed to do half as all the bending over was taking a toll on my back.

After lunch I was umming and arghing whether to go the the gym or not, as I had planned to use this time at home to really get stuck into the exercise again.I had the Celtic devil on one shoulder telling me I shouldn't go that I had done enough exercise for the day and the Celtic angel on the other urging me to go. The angel won out thankfully, I just got dressed and went, did my stuff and came home.So simple really I don't know why I have to make it such a big deal.

My food today has been good I stayed within my calories and am very interested to see what I can pull off by sticking it to relgiously and exercising every day. Time will tell.

The devil is always more tempting than the angel, but the devil's promises are empty. Good for you for following the angel.

Sometimes we have to make ourselves go do our exercise because in the end we feel better for it aye.

I took off last week to work out what I needed to do weight wise and business wise as well and it seemed to get me back on track so I hope your time off does the same thing.

We all know what we can pull off if we stay on track mate... it's staying on track we have to pull off first! Keep it up sweetie.

I agree with Chris... staying on track is the hardest part on this blasted journey...

Good on you for going with the angel. Maybe you could keep a diary of how you feel after you've given in to one or the other. Then the next time the devil is making waves, read the diary.
I like that idea. I just thought of it. Now i'm going to steal the idea..off myself lol

Gardening is great for you! And really rewarding too :o)

Is it just me, or does the angel look like a stripper?

Never underestimate the power of the dark overlord of the nether regions...whatever that means.
