Good Day  
I feel like I am always inclined to write in my journal when I have a bad day, so how about the opposite this time. Yesterday was a really good day overall. Nothing special happened, but I felt really good when I went to bed. I got up and went to work in the morning like usual. Even though I was running late, I still looked really put together. I always feel like the day will be better if I look nice. I had a yogurt and a water for breakfast, and got a lot accomplished in the morning at work. I had pasta with alfredo and a small ceasar salad for lunch with my one diet coke for the day (new years resolution). After lunch I went back to work and managed to get even more done. I have been slacking at work a lot lately so this was a good thing. After work I went to the grocery store and got a few items, and went and got my hair cut. I needed a trim, and my eyebrows done. The lady who was working was kind of sketchy looking. I always hesitate to get my hair cut by someone who doesn't look like they even know how to brush their hair. But I trusted her and she ended up being really quite wonderful. I really liked her and will probably go back. Nothing fancy with my hair cut, just a trim of an inch off the back and 1/2 an inch off the sides. After the haircut, I went tanning. I don't tan a lot, because #1 it's expensive, #2  it's not good for you, and #3 I don't want to look like a guidette. But I do like feeling good about my skin occasionally and the warmth from the tanning beds is relaxing in the winter. So I bought a 3 session package and I'm sure I'll go 3 times, and not again for many months. I'm not good at commitments. After that I went home and hit the elliptical for 25 minutes and did some weight lifting and stretching. For dinner I had a morningstar chick'n pattie on a wheat bun, and a string cheese for a snack with a crystal light. I remembered to take my vitamins, and went to bed at 10:30.

None of that seems all that impressive to a normal person I would imagine, but with my lack of discipline and motivation, that's kind of a big deal for me. And I feel really good about it today, so I am hoping that the feeling from yesterday will help me make good decisions today. All of this is probably a little bit motivated by the fact that I met a guy this weekend, who I think is really awesome. It was a set up from two mutual friends, and we went out for lunch on Sunday. We met for lunch at 12:30 and ended up talking for 4 and a half hours at the cafe. It just felt really good. I think we clicked pretty well. He's out of town for work this week, so i can't see him again until this weekend, but I have found myself, even in just the past 2 days thinking about how I can't wait to get to hangout with him again. I haven't felt that way in a really long time. So, here's hoping... That being said, since I have been single for so long, I have not cared as much about my appearance, and well being as I should. So it's time to get motivated.
