I decided yesterday that I was going to take it one minute at a time, one hour at a time, one meal at a time. I woke up focused and ready to face the world. It wasn’t all fantastic though. I put on my work clothes – my pants felt tighter than usual, my shirt more snug. I had a whole food paleo breakfast (success #1!), put on my jacket (that no longer zips up) and went to work. There were times during the day when I didn’t notice my pants, and other times when I just wanted to rip them off. At work they offered us a free carb-loaded processed breakfast – I had none – food that is bad for me is never free. I will always pay for it later. (success #2!). I was tired after work, but still made it to my spinning class – first one in a few weeks (success #3!). I came home and ate a lovely mix of veggies and meat (love my crockpot!) (success #4!). Ok, I admit it, I had a bit of cheese, and a small piece of 88% dark chocolate.
My day wasn’t perfect, but I had 4 successes – that’s more successes than I have had in weeks. In my books I rocked. Tomorrow I plan to count at least 5 successes!
Every little bit helps, and every step in the right direction is a step forward.
