Failing myself

Sunday, March 08, 2020

I have been failing myself lately. It wasn't intentional but I let it happen. I'm disappointed in myself but I have only myself to blame. I allowed a week away from home to derail the progress I was making by giving myself excuses on why I couldn't work out. I could have done something but I did not. I didn't eat the greatest and I put my health on the back burner. But enough is enough. I am taking back control and getting back on track. I refuse to allow the weather or detours in my normal routine to get in my way. I refuse to allow myself to get in my way. Back to a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise per day, it doesn't matter what form it takes as long as it gets done. I am getting to bed at a decent time every night regardless of my schedule. I am getting in my minimum of 64 oz of water every day. I am going to do what food prep I can. I am not sticking my house with 'junk food' just because it is 'cheaper.' I am going to start buying what is on sale and seasonal for fruits and veggies. I'm changing the tracks my train is on. Failure is behind me and there is nothing but success from here on out.

    Change is difficult but can be achieved. Consistency and having an environment set up for success are two important keys, at least for me. Another is having small reasonable goals to keep me on track and another one is being patient. Remembering that this journey is for life, keeps me grounded. Keeping a record of my goals and what I've achieved so far, keeps me accountable, focused and motivated. Stay the course. my friend. emoticon

    It is not failure, each experience leads to progress. Yes, you may not have done what you felt you needed and wanted to do but you are learning and growing. No failure at all just a step to the side for a bit.

    That's what makes you successful! Knowing when you're off track and then getting right back on with a plan! Great job!
