I can't believe it! only 4 days left, and the temptation is to say, "Oh I only have 4 days left, so it's ok if I cheat."
If you have thought that, I want to ask you this....if you cheat, who or what are you cheating other than yourself?
I am not saying this temptation does not appear, it does, but you really have to THINK it through.
I know because I thought that once or twice ( I have after all done all of the 30 Day Challenges so far...)
I now say to myself, only 4 days, left and I AM GOING TO MAKE THEM COUNT! Sprint for the finish line and all that! Finish strong !
So....when temptation comes, does it make you feel like a failure? It shouldn't because we ALL get tempted. We all have to consider our inner thoughts and figure out what to do with them.....so no, you are not a failure if a soda can is calling your name or a cookie is waving madly at you. First thing you should do is breathe, and think.....take it ONE DECISION AT A TIME.....and that is the way to do it! Make a calculated decision....think about internal or external control and what your goals are....is it really worth it?
Then make your decision and move on..... someone told me yesterday it is only though our mistakes that we learn, not by the things we do right! SO THERE...you win both ways! As long as you recognize that you do indeed need to heed those lessons learned!
By the way, in case you were wondering, the next 30 Day Challenge starts on April 1st!
Let me know if you want to do it with me, it is going to be slightly different!
