I didn't do that much this weekend except laundry. I watched bookTV on CSPAN2, and learned of a new book, "The Unwinding," that sounded good. So I bought it and got it on my kindle (instant gratification) and have been reading that. I was very bad and made an ice cream run. But I actually think that, calorie-wise, I did okay today. Just way too much sugar.
Even though I didn't do that much of what I wanted to get done- grocery shopping, exercise, church, etc., I still feel good. And I can't decide if that is a good thing or a bad thing. Maybe I do need to be harder on myself at times. But instead, I just feel mellow today.
Keeping with the good mood I gave 100$ to the American Red Cross. Why do good moods make us feel more generous? Why do bad moods often have the reverse effect? Our brains could have been wired the opposite way. I wonder if you get the same effect in primates.
I have a lot to do in the coming week. I have some paperwork to get caught up on an work. And we have a journal club meeting that I am organizing, and I have to finish preparing. I have to go grocery shopping. Buy a present for my niece before I see her this weekend. And do some cleaning before my mother comes. And yes, I am going to make it to all of my yoga classes. In fact, I am going to try out a new class on Wednesday evening as well.
