So this is how my day started….
Alarm went off at 7 am and I turned it off, thinking I was awake enough to get up in a few minutes. After all it is Saturday.
I awake again at 810 to a text and right away I am aware that my workout starts in 25 minutes.
I grabbed my phone and set my Waze direction app. It assures me I can arrived by 832, 3 minutes before the workout begins. I think for a moment, realize I don’t have time to think, and bound out of bed. Within 5 minutes I am on my way.
It was good to be there, to workout with friends, to celebrate Kristin hitting her 50 pound goal and to get a good workout. Every workout challenges me and reminds me that I have gotten stronger and I have a long way to go. It is a good place to be, balancing the truth of both realities.
But today I think it was Rosso’s last words that will stick with me. He said enjoy your day and no PLDs. I looked around…PLD? What was that.
I learned that a PLD is a Poor Life Decision. I right away thought of how I could apply that to my every day. I liked it. It was simple. Is this choice a PLD? But I like to focus on the positive. What might be the opposite?
On my drive home I came up with my new decision guide. Is it a PLD or a QLD? I want to make Quality Life Decisions. I can use this for most every situation I face. It shaped my decision to take the time to make my breakfast as opposed to just getting busy.
It can be applied to that impulsive reach for the Oreo or for the decision to head to boot camp on a morning I over sleep. Sometimes the quality decision may be different. On a migraine morning, quality life decision may be to stay in bed but on a Saturday morning staying in bed may be a PLD.
I am thankful for the community of people I am surrounded by at Forest Hills Fit Body Boot Camp. I am even more thankful for the invitation to make life style changes that will benefit me till my last breath.
How about you….PLD or QLD? The decision is yours!
