I'm sitting stressing over things I can't do a thing about. How did I get back here. I told myself I wouldn't do this again. So, have I failed once again? Do I need to just hang it up and say I failed once again?
Pressed for time, I stopped at a fast food place, unable to drive and eat healthy, I get cheap , fast, and fattening. Rushing to get somewhere I never been before. Woke up late, no time to cook. Here I come drive thru. What was I thinking?
Still running behind, no time to lay out something for dinner. Grandsons birthday, husband suggests we take him out for his birthday. Let's look at the menu. Fried, fried, fried, and I don't know what that is. Cool, spaghetti with meat sauce, salad, and Diet Pepsi. Sounds pretty healthy compared to everything else.
Go drop grandson off, still need to run to store and get him a gift and decorations for his party tomorrow. I just remembered I told my husband, I didn't get my salad at the restaurant. Oh well, too late now. Healthiest part of the meal, and I didn't realize it wasn't there.
Start to leave the store I remembered something I forgot, peroxide and bandaides, where my husband got hurt trying to carry my treadmill in the house by himself.
What do you mean the phones not on? My son and daughter-in-law look at me with sad eyes telling me they didn't have enough money to pay the bill. Why didn't you let me know this before I went and bought my treadmill, which I purchased from someone off of Craig's List. I can't return it. Anything else.
Mechanic says he can't fix the truck til next weekend. Well doesn't look like I'm gonna get the van in the shop before the warranty runs out, and summer is coming. What am I going to do without my air conditioner? Did yawl forget we in the south, it gets HOT AS HAITIS down here.
Oh well tomorrows a new day, getting stressed day is over. Time to move on.
Keep Smiling

    Whoa, I see a Dr. Seuss moment in this blog. To wit:

    "Today was fun. Today is done. Tomorrow is another one!"

    This morning you can return to tracking nutrition, drinking the Sparky water, achieving some fitness, etc. In a few days your body will not know that the circumstances of your blog even occurred. Human anatomy truly is amazing that way!

    Nope, you have not failed. Failure is quitting completely, giving up on yourself; not continuing to try to do better. You know tomorrow's a new day. You know that tomorrow you're going to try to do better for yourself.

    And try this - compare today to past days you've been stressed. Would you have tried to get reasonably healthy food at the restaurant or just figured you blew breakfast so you might as well have the biggest, baddest fried food? What might this stressful day have been like if you weren't trying at all? Think of every success in the day, every decision that was in the direction of a healthier you.


    Sleep well and wake to a better tomorrow!
