Yesterday, I spent many hours contemplating the idea of commitment, especially as it relates to living a healthful lifestyle. In yesterday's blog entry, I asked how many times I'd have to re-commit before I finally just got it.

This morning, I've decided that it's not a matter of re-committing. Somewhere in the dark recesses of my mind, I've been committed all along. So rather than re-start my clock all the way back to day one, I'm going to take my slip-ups, no matter how big, for what they are. Slip-ups.

Even if it meant I wasn't eating right or exercising for two weeks straight, I shouldn't have to "start over." How frustrating is that, anyway? Always starting over after every little blip? It's discouraging. That's what that phrase "starting over" is, especially if you've had as many do-overs as I've been allowing myself to have. No more do-overs. No more start-overs. I will do the best I can, and I will celebrate the little things in order to pump myself up rather than tear myself down.

    I doubt that there is one person out there who hasn't been in your shoes. It is all about continuing the path to health in whatever way you can.
