The Plan Before The Plan

The Plan Before The Plan

It’s Plan Time.

I come to this place about once a year. It comes for different reasons at different times…I feel stale, I gain weight, I feel like I’m not doing enough…I JUST WANT MORE!

I get in a rut.

I’m a person that believes in allowing yourself to experience emotions and feel them (if you have the time, sometimes you don’t and you have to just keep it moving..but this time, I had the time). So when my “rut” hit a week or two ago, I allowed myself to be there. I wasn’t ready to put on a happy face and pretend like it was candy canes and roses, I wanted to passive aggressively tweet, write blogs about eggs and baskets, SUPER SIZE my fries at Mc Donald’s because “I deserve it” (when really I was just eating my feelings), drink one more cocktail than I should have, not where make up  etc.

Healthy behavior? Maybe not…but we all cope in different ways.

Yesterday I decided it was time for the rut to be over. Because as much as I would like to tell you that feeling sorry for yourself and doing nothing produces results…it doesn’t. And so The Plan begins…but sometimes the plan can be overwhelming. Which is why I came up with what I like to call, “The Plan Before The Plan”. It’s the in between.

I made my Plan Before The Plan last night.

The tacos were delicious, the book brought me back to my center, and today I felt ready to take on the world. Ready to start making The Plan.

Here is the delicious Barbacoa I made in the crockpot for my amazing tacos.
