Well, I made it yesterday! I was successful once in a row. Today I didn't do so well. I didn't post my food and therefore wasn't nearly aware of what I put in my mouth.
But think about it: yesterday I met my goals. I was successful once in a row. Today I aimed for my goals and missed some of them, but I think I was still successful. Maybe I'm straining at gnats, but I try to separate myself from my goal so that when I miss the goal, I don't think I'm a failure, just that I failed the goal.
I can only reach my goal once in a row anyway, today. I've only got one chance today. Yesterday is history, as they say, and tomorrow can't be accomplished today, so I only have to succeed once in a row today; that's all I can possibly succeed. Luckily I have more than one goal, so I can succeed once in a row with part of them, even if I don't make it with all of them. But, you see, today I succeeded once in a row. Now I only have to strive for once in a row again tomorrow.
"A goal should be a star to guide you, not a stick to beat yourself with." I'm going to succeed tomorrow—once in a row.
