WANTED: Self-discipline

Anyone know where I can find some?

I promised myself that after New Year's Eve, I was going back on The Wagon with my eating habits. I have basically let myself eat anything I want since Thanksgiving and my jeans have recently reminded me of why this is a not-so-good idea. But despite my displeasure over the current state of my bottom half, I cannot seem to get my rear in gear.

Working at home has been murder on my eating and exercise routines. Like, literally killed them because I basically don't do anything anymore. I was disciplined for a long time but after we left Knoxville, I just never got into a good routine that works. I know that I should take advantage of not having a commute and use that time wisely but here we are a year-and-a-half later and so far all I've done is think about it. I plot and plan at night when I can't fall asleep but come morning, I find every excuse in the world to run to Starbucks or just snuggle up with a book after work, instead of doing what I know I should do - exercise.

I know it is cliche to do this at this time of year, but I figure maybe if I say it publicly here, I will be shamed motivated into finding my self-discipline again.

Going to eat sloppy joes and have a glass of wine (or two) on my last night of freedom.

Dead girl walking....

If you find some of that self-discipline at the store let me know because I could use some too! Here's to being the people we want to be in '09 instead of just thinking about it! :-)
