Thursday FATfirmation: Relax, Relate, Release

I apologize for the night writing.  I’m going to try to get these posted by noon day of.  Now on with today’s fatfirmation.

Whitley Gilbert, with the help of her dance instructor (played by Debbie Allen) said it best: Relax, Relate, Release.  It had a wonderful southern twang to it that I can’t immitate in type – but if you know A Different World and Whitley, chances are you’ve seen the episode or you at least can imagine the sound.

Relax, Relate, Release hits the nail on the head.  You can’t stress out over dieting/lifestyle changing – especially when you have a medium sized dog or a large chair to lose from your body weight.  We blog all week, we resist temptation by the minute, we worry about our appearance by the second, but there comes a time when you just have to let it all go and just breath.  You know your goals, you know how to achieve them, and you’re gonna do what you need to – so on Thursdays, before you hit the weekend, just try to shake it off.  That way, you won’t go into the weekend frustrated – which just might make you splurge on fatty foods or skip your workout.

So, in the spirit of Thursday, I’m going to take a nice hot shower, light a Decadent Flame Pigasm candle, and watch my favorite tv show before I hit the sack.  I’m not going to grab the bulb of my tummy or pinch my saddle bags – that’s Monday behavior.

G’night.
