I did it! ♥
I didn’t do it perfectly but I did what I set out to do today – eat light, not consume sugar, meat, or heavy carbs, and start my journey out strong. I am rounding my day out with finishing one of my last real estate courses online, feeding my two favorite Rottie pups a tasty dinner, and mellowing in the fact that I kept my promises to myself today. I accomplished all this while having a very stressful day at work, filled with clenched fists, a furrowed brow that occupied my forehead for the majority of the day, and a strong desire to quit by way of eating chocolate with my co-workers (it is post-Halloween season in our workplace after all). But in the end, I didn’t quit on myself and for that I am proud.
I have found that the key is truly taking it one day at a time. Anyone can do anything for one day of their life so I chose to focus on that. I vow to do right by my body for just today. Tomorrow doesn’t exist and I can’t erase the heavy mistakes of my past so I chose not to dwell on them. I chose not to defeat myself based on prior transgressions. By focusing on today, and today only, I can simplify my existence and tackle the present. Whatever you do, focus only on today and by tomorrow, the process will have begun and success will be your new reality.
So for today, I won. I conquered what I set out to do and tomorrow I will wake up and do it again. Just for that one day, and that one day after that. Until what I have vowed to create has taken on a life of its own and I find myself a changed woman, one day at a time.
