I've always been afraid to do certain things as I might affect their outcome.
Sometimes I'm afraid to watch sporting events for fear of my team losing, talk about potential love interests thinking it will fall apart if I do, and am ESPECIALLY reluctant to talk about job interviews for fear of showing that I'm a failure in meeting my career goals.
The latter has been plaguing me of late.
But I'm also afraid to talk about weight loss lately, which doesn't go with the whole theme and objective of this blog.
See, I saw a good loss on the digital devil the other day. I was happy. I actually did a little happy dance and was then thankful that the curtains were drawn so that my neighbours didn't see me.
I wanted to shout it from the rooftops and thought about taking a pic of the scale as solid proof.
But I'm glad that I didn't.
Today, the day that is my official WI day for online, I'm up. WAY up.
I have no explanation for it either. I was a model WW this weekend and exercised like a fiend.
Could it be that I jinxed it as I wasn't supposed to weigh myself the other day but did anyway? Did that actually affect things today? Did I actually get cocky and slack off and can't remember it? Did I do too much this weekend and my body is actually trying to pay me back?
Am I just a quirky fool who needs a slap upside the head?
Thought? Opinions? Feelings? Odd things that you think you jinx?
