If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up.
Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
- Michael Jordan
I survived Easter. Oh I planned for that coconut cake I ate, I planned for the meal...which I may add was healthy because I prepared it. I planned for the whole day. It turned out wonderful. I had my cake and ate it too and woke up feeling like I had concured the world. Today is day 4 and I so hope I can report that it went according to plan also. I have a lot of left overs to eat my way through but lucky for me they are again healthy, and the coconut cake is sitting in the bottom of the trash can. I tossed that this morning. If it isn't there it isn't tempting me and calling out to me. I planned for the slice, not that whole thing.
I'm starting to see I need to work on me. I need to relax, take this one day at a time, see how far i've come and stop worrying about how far I have yet to go. These last five pounds have decided to stay for a while and even though I want them gone in another sense i'm seeing that I can do maintenance and that is ok also. I have to see my cup as half full and not empty. I have fallen into that "I need more all the time" thinking and I really don't like that in me much. So with Easter comes new beginnings and that for me is essential to keeping my head about me. I have a journey to complete. Not that it will be over, oh no, the next will just be beginning. Life is full of new beginnings it is how we handle each one the sets us apart.
