SAVED BY CRAIG

Deb: I'll PM you about the stuff thats concerning me. Thanks for your continued support.

Nic/Shelly: focussing on "the day" ahead and forging ahead. At 6 weeks out there is no more time for stuffing around...hey!!

Rae: thank you for that wonderful bit of inspiration from Ralph. I am printing it off and placing it in a number of key spots (the front of my Training Journal/the partition I face at work/the pantry door).


Last night I realised that I've been carrying a lot of anger bottled up in me as I dont like to vent it and get people hurt or off-side. So I pulled out a piece of paper and wrote it all down with no intention of passing it on to the people concerned. My intention was to get it down on paper and then let go of it all.

Well I woke up feeling crabby, moody and negative...so much for my "anger release strategy" LOL!!!
I have the day off today which is a good thing. I had a shoulders/bis/calves session to do and my usual cardio which I just got on with (in my crabby, moody and negative state). BUT while I rode my exercise bike I reread some of Craig Harper's Fatitude. VOILA!!!! Reality check!! No point in being angry with people as I now understand why they're doing the things they are. Plus Craig has given me the proverbial "slap in the face" I needed to overcome my pathetic disposition.

I'm writing this with a smirk on my face, feeling tons better than when I woke up and knowing that I'M GOING TO HAVE A GOOD DAY :-)

Hope you all do too.

Cheers Magda

Sounds like a good book to have a read of. I am certain all of us have had those days too. Especially while dieting ;)

I'm starting to get interested in this book, seems like everyone is talking about it here in blog land.
I will google it to find out more about it.
I'm glad your feeling positive today, that's great news.

Craig's book has a way of doing that to you, it's like a literature "reality check". Sooner or later we all need one Magda. I'm glad it helped, I knew it would. ;o) xx

And if you had Craig there in person he would've given a real slap on the face! He's that sort of a blokeLOL!

I haven't read fatitude, but have read good reviews about it, I like the way Craig harper writes.

Great to hear you are feeling much better, keep up the attitude and have a great weekend
