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 ♥
