The weather doesn't influence my moods

It's pouring rain and cold in Melbourne today.  The old me would let the weather influence her mood.  I would have stayed in my warm bed until the last possible minute.  I would have skipped breakfast as I would have run out of time.  I would have got to work late.  I would have been all sleepy and unmotivated to work.  I would have felt sluggish and been very unproductive.  I am disgusted just thinking about the old me!

But I'm loving the new me!  I got up super early out of my super warm bed, just like I do every day.  I happily drove to the gym in the rain listening to Gaga (of course).  I trained my upper body muscles to fatigue, then did a short run because I felt like it.  I got to work 45mins early.  I ate breakfast nice and slowly while checking my personal messages on Facebook and 12WBT web page.  I feel amazing and I'm actually enjoying the sound of the rain. 

I think I can finally say that I am at the point where This Is My Lifestyle.  This is just what I do now.  It's nothing super or extraordinary.  It is just what I do.  That's a pretty cool feeling.

The other great thing is that this terrible weather has had no influence on my mood at all today.  Wow, this strong mind thing that Mish has taught us is totally awesome in so many more ways than I expected it to be.  I am just generally a positive person now.  I apply JFDI to all aspects of my life and it makes me feel good.  I don't waste time worrying about things or getting anxious, as that used to get me nowhere and would usually make the situation worse.

I wasn't a huge fan of the word "transformation" until I finally experienced it.  I have genuinely "transformed" in body, mind and spirit.  This is my lifestyle now.  That is priceless to me :)

It's 8.28am - time to start another productive day at work.  I hope your day is productive too!


  1. love your post Splash, just love it! Your positive outlook is amazing! Keep up the great work!

  2. Thanks so much. My thoughts just shock me sometimes as I never used to be this positive. I am slowly discovering more and more great things in me that have changed for the better that go way beyond losing weight :)
    Wishing you all the best.
