I played my cello this evening :o)
But back to tonight. I actually haven't played the cello in about 2 months!!! I took a break last November because I was feeling a little worn out and wanted to focus on the gym a little bit more.
The last few weeks I have been noticing that I have missed playing, but I was always talking myself out of it. I tend to do that, don't we all? But tonight I just took her out of the case and didn't give myself time to talk myself out of it. And I had a great time; and my fingers are very sore. They are so not used to working the strings :o) It will take some time for them to toughen up again!
My big question now is; WHY?!?
Why do I talk myself out of so many things? I love playing the cello, and yes I did need a break, but I have been wanting to play again for a while.
I do this for a lot of things. If I am feeling the tiniest bit tired, I so easily talk myself out of going to the gym. I talk myself out of the healthy foods.
Another example of this is the salads I have recently re-discovered. I love salads and yet I had talked myself out of them for a few months.
Why is that we can talk ourselves out of anything that is good for us?
I guess if I had the answer and solution to that; I wouldn't be as fat as I am and would not have needed to have a lapband installed :o)
On that note, my appointment with my surgeon is on Thursday and I can not wait. I really think I need a fill and am so looking forward to getting some more restriction. I just feel as though I can eat almost anything and I find I can also eat a lot quicker that before. Some of it is stuff that I have to work on just myself and some of it a fill will help with.
Alright, I have to get up early in the morning for work, so I think I will say goodnight and I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!!
(I'll probably read this post tomorrow and wonder where I was going...it started as a post just to let you know that I have finally gotten back to playing the cello)
