One day at a time, right? That's all we have. That's all we can control.
I've decided to push forward, to quit lamenting the days that I've missed, and take it one step at a time. I've been logging in consistently (though I apparently forgot to spin the wheel, which set me back, streak-wise. Whoops.) and tracking, which are both steps that I can control.
I've started my own personal streak of at least 30 min of exercise (in any form) per day, which is going well. I've been quite good about eating within my limits and trying to add more water and vegetables.
So I'm giving myself a big pat on the back. Why? Because we can all be kinder to ourselves. Being kind doesn't mean being lenient or indulgent-- rather, it means to meet ourselves where we are, and want to strive to be better while celebrating the work that we've already done. Being kind allows us to take stock of what we've done RIGHT, and building on that foundation for more good stuff to come.
How are you being kind to yourself today?
