I get in these moods...

I get in these moods where I want to start being better to myself. I don't know what brings them on and I normally don't follow through on my plans for all that long... but I'm thinking I'm in one of these moods again.

These moods usually strike at the most inopportune times:

* I generally feel like I want to go work out (run, ride my bike or *gasp* lift weights) at the beginning of a work day in the middle of the week and by the time I get home I don't feel like doing anything... so I don't do anything.

* I feel like eating more healthy on days when they have the absolute worst (and usually most tasty) foods in the cafeteria for lunch.

* I feel like doing specific things like riding my bike when we're having a blizzard or snowboarding in the middle of July. (Obviously not the most feasible times...)

I did, however, do a few good things:

* I picked a new dentist (well, my girlfriend picked me a new dentist, really...) and had my two cleanings this year. I'm also going for my first ever filling in a couple weeks...

* I went to an optometrist, had my eyes examined and got new glasses to replace the ones I've had for YEARS. I can't remember the last time I had an eye exam before this past time. (I didn't really have a reason not to go since I actually have halfway decent vision insurance... and I found myself squinting with my glasses on while trying to read stuff on the TV...)

Even though I feel like I'm in one of my "moods", I'm not going to set any goals because I know that I SUCK at following through at doing healthy things for myself... but I'm going to try to make a more solid attempt at actually eating a little better and exercising a little more... Yeah, yeah... I've said it before...

I'm still in the process of trying to simplify all of my material possessions, too. Over the past couple months I did manage to sell off a few CD's and misc. items on eBay and craigslist and give away 3 big garbage bags worth of stuff to Salvation Army/Goodwill.

I put up my guitars (that I never play) up for sale on craigslist a couple weeks ago but had no serious interest. I'm thinking I'm going to have to lower the prices more than I really wanted to in order to sell them. I'm not sure about selling them for lower than the latest prices I had them up there for... but on the other hand I NEVER play them... So I guess any money plus some more space in the apartment in exchange for something I NEVER use is probably a decent trade-off...
