Brene Brown is such an awesome speaker and you all know how much I appreciate her messages...especially for us women and our in-ability to accept ourselves as we are! Her shows on TED TV are wonderful and I was so excited last week when she announced on her blog that her hour-long show, The Gifts of Imperfection, started airing, March 5th on most of the PBS stations nationwide.
According to the list on Brene's blog, my station was suppose to have aired it on Friday, March 5th...however it did not air :[ SO...I quickly sent off an email to PBS and they responded by telling me that I needed to contact my local station to request that it be added. I then forwarded the PBS emailed response to my local station...so we'll see if they get it on for me ;)
Boy do I need to watch this show right now...but in the meantime I'll just have to be happy with this teaser trailer that PBS has posted:
Today has been one week since I began the 6 week shape up challenge and I'm happy to report that I've lost a whole pound and a half...NOT the biggest loser by any standards. However, I'm trying to remember that it's a something and to appreciate the fact that I didn't gain ;) SO WHY am I not jumping for joy over this? For me I think it's because I find eating...let alone dieting...a big pain in the butt! Especially when I'd rather take the time to blog, or work in my art journals, or sew anything, or at least be able to hang out in my kitchen cooking things for my family. I'm the type that tends to get so busy that I have to remind myself to take time to eat. I'd rather grab a protein bar or a raw smoothie and go back to playing/working ;) AND now I have to remember to write it all down in my food journal...yuk...yuk!
SO...I'm trying to enjoy the process of art journaling with my food journal...but this is adding pressure to my art process and that makes me kinda grumpy! AND we won't even get started on the exercise part!!! Days/weeks like this just make me HATE getting older because it's so much more work to keep the weight off. Boy do I need an attitude adjustment or what?
Or perhaps I just need some brain food...lol Hope you all have a wonderful evening.
