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.
