Lately, certain tasks like working the same shift, eating the same crappy lunch, and wearing the same broken rainboots have really started to get on my nerves. Sometimes I wonder why I let myself get mundane and ignore the fact that I continually do things I do not feel good about! It's kinda like getting stuck in a rut, except you're purposely choosing to not care. Today, I finally care enough. I think. I can't even look at that picture above without screaming to myself that I need to suck it up and just get a new pair of boots. I mean, really. Look at them! I don't know what it is about it, but shoe shopping is one thing I love and hate all at the same time- I'll only really buy one nice pair of shoes a year and then just try and "skate by" and wear them, beaten up, for as long as I can. I'm sure we all have that "one necessity" it's just hard for us to shell out the money for, regardless of how badly we need it. Mine is shoes.
As far as the eating goes, it's going to be a tough transition into living a healthier lifestyle. I caved and had a bacon egg and cheese breakfast bagel today. (BACON! CARBS!) I'm just doing everything for the sake of convenience because it's so... damn... hard... trying to make the effort to prepare meals and pack lunches of said prepared meals because the time I'm spending at home usually goes straight to my daughter. I don't even want to be doing anything else once I get home.
What have you all done to break that rut? To break the monotony? I love what I do, but certain bad habits die hard. What do they say, it takes 27 days to create or break a bad habit or something like that? I guess I'm going to have to stick it out, friends. Here's to day one.
