Day 1 – 30 Days of Discipline

I am going to take these 30 days and put discipline back into every day.  Not just when I feel like it, or when someone tells me too.  I am going to be stronger than food, laziness, criticism, anguish and pain.  

How am I going to do that?  One day at a time.  Each day unto itself.  There’s almost always an obstacle in our path.  The weather keeps us from going to the gym. Chores keep us from visiting friends.  A movie keeps us up way past bedtime. We justify our excuses and each time it gets easier to convince ourselves; until the excuse becomes the normal and life shifts from its balance. So I’m taking life back.  When I make an excuse, I’ll remember my commitment to discipline until the excuses no longer hold me. 

Today, even with my little wine hangover (but excellent time with Nick & Cheryl) I refused to give in to the “I need grease to feel better”.  I chose healthy food, lots of water and yoga to relax. It maybe took a little longer to feel better, but it felt amazing to not give in to the temptation.
