Every day - a new day. Every Day - a Victory

Sunday, January 06, 2019

Well, today I fell off the sweet tooth wagon. Ferrero Rocher candies - a gift for Christmas Eve dinner - I've been able to resist them, or at the very least, limit myself to one. Today, I had 3!!! this helped take my calorie and fat count way over the limits I set. On top of that, I lounged all day: watched movies, napped, only moved when I absolutely had to. The most productive things I accomplished today: attending church online and searching for area rugs and umbrella stands for my new abode. When I tried losing weight before, I would berate myself for any lapse. Today - I shrugged my shoulders and reminded myself that today is one day; tomorrow I WILL do better. My motto this year is that every day is a victory. So, even though I had a food lapse, the fact that I have not spent it bemoaning that error, is a victory. And so I grow. Peace

    Good for you. Focus on the positive. Even though you ate some candy, you logged it. That's a pat on the back right there. Keep up the good work.
