Casual musings from one woman to the world

Forgive yourself

I have felt a little bit like a failure, yet again, in regards to my diet because I have been straying off of my strict course since my knee surgery.  I have been so incredibly committed to myself for the past few months that since, for the past 10 days roughly, I have been eating whatever I want, I felt like I failed.  Failed myself yet again.

It took me a few days to process it.  With the constant support from my husband, who always tells me how beautiful I am, I finally processed it all today and came to my conclusion – who cares that I had a few day lapse in strict eating, I had surgery and have gone through a lot!  I have to cut myself a break sometimes (so much easier said than done for me because I am my absolute harshest critic).

So I write this as a renewed commitment to myself.  I am back on board with caring for myself and being conscious of my choices.  I will not dwell on the small mistakes I have made but I will rather celebrate all of the progress I have made.  I will continue to work hard because I am worth working hard for.  If we don’t make ourselves a priority, aren’t our priorities out of whack?

I look forward to being able to work out and move my body soon, after I become more mobile and continue to heal.  So not only do I have my renewed sense of self to be happy about today but I also have the upcoming arrival of my Mom, who is visiting us on Friday!  And I also have The Bachelorette on tonight and it starts in 5 minutes.  The only thing that would make tonight better would be having my husband at home with me (I miss him a lot since he is at work).  Cheers and goodnight ♥
