The Asylum of my Mind

Breathe Steph breathe…that’s it…oh wait tighten your abs…No!! Don’t stop breathing…You need to FOCUS…tighten you abs and breathe…in out, in out…this is stupid…You’re not focusing…Shut up I’m trying to breathe…oh no my abs…hang on…That’s it!! I’m losing my mind…No you’re not…QUIET I CAN’T THINK!!…you’re not supposed to think…you’re supposed to be exercising…BREATHE….what about my abs??…I hate this song that’s playing…hold on wait a minute…quit fooling around, breathe and suck in those abs…that’s it pull you belly button to your back…I can’t breathe when I do that…YES YOU CAN…please stop…

On an on this incessant dialog with myself continues as I’m trying so hard to do what I’m supposed to do but my mind keeps wandering. One would think that the music would be enough to keep my brain occupied but it steadfastly refuses to relax and enjoy the motivating sound of my playlists.

If exercise and weight loss were dependent upon brain power I would have reached my goal by now. Part of me wished I could have a personal trainer but then I know it wouldn’t work because I’d probably refuse to conform. So for now at least I’ll just have to endure the noise inside my head while pushing through to the next target.

151 pounds was my weight this morning and yes, I’m a little disappointed because I thought with some of my clothes being looser that I lost more than just 0.3 pounds. All is not lost though as the total weight loss is now 15 pounds from when I began February 1.

After my workout I checked my email, clicked on the one from Zulily and I couldn’t contain my enthusiasm. I was downright giddy at the sight of these words “Now Trending: Flats — up to 65% off,” not to mention the colorful shoes in the ad. So what do I do next? I click the ad to see what lovelies await me.

Sprinkled throughout today’s post are pictures of a few of my favorites. If you’re in the market for some cute spring flats look no further than your computer.

I may have mentioned it previously but just in case Zulily is an event based online retailer which means the products they sell are only available for a limited time. At the time of this post today’s sale runs for 2 days 16 hours and once the products are sold out that’s the end of that particular event. Also, you have to create a free account which allows you to receive emails from Zulily with special events. I’ve ordered a couple of things from them at a great savings although it does take approximately 2 to 3 weeks for the orders to be processed.
