There are good days and there are bad days.
I can't control the weather, the traffic, the annoying people who pass through my day.
When you really think about it, there's not much in life that anyone CAN control.
And yet, now and then, sometimes without a plan or a lot of thought, I have a perfect day!
That one perfect day, where everything goes smoothly, happily, joyfully throughout the entire day - just makes me remember it's possible and makes me want an instant replay - another one just like it.
It happens that way with food, too. I always have this plan in the back of my mind... how I should eat, how I want to eat, to feel good, be healthy, stay slim and trim.
Some days I stick to that plan with no effort at all. Some days EVERYTHING seems to be fighting my desire to eat healthy foods in healthy portions.
So, I'm always searching for that perfect day. Perfect food day. Perfect eating day.
It seems to me that the ONE thing I CAN actually control is what I put in my mouth.
Surely I can't let someone else control that? Surely I can't let my emotional reactions to the weather, the traffic, the annoying people, control that?
So here's my challenge for THIS day - to make this a Perfect Day for my bodily consumption of food and drink.
JUST THIS ONE DAY - I will completely control what I put in my mouth. ME. Not the weather, not the traffic, not the annoying people. NOT my response to all of that.
JUST THIS ONE DAY - I will strive to have a perfect food journal - whatever that means to me - that perfectly reflects a perfect food day.
No matter how many days of trying it takes to get that Perfect Day, I will do it.
I'll keep trying until I do.
And WHEN I do, I'll relish it, enjoy it, celebrate it, BLOW IT ALL OUT OF PROPORTION!
Maybe I'll have a parade!!
I'll make such a big deal of it that the FEEL of it will stick in my mind, will stay with me, and it will be that much easier to do it again - the next day.
Wishing us all a Perfect Day!
