" A wise man will make haste to forgive, because he knows the true value of time , and will not suffer it to pass away in unnecessary pain, " Samuel Johnson

We are in the mist of a heat wave a whole week of hot and more to come. I have women's issues. My daughter was not pleased with me for missing the gym yesterday. She loved the streak I had going. Yeah well so did I .

Life happens, issues come up , things change. We fail . Don't allow yourself to fall. Forgive yourself, love yourself ,be kind to yourself and move on.

The way I see it I have two choices . I can spend the day thinking about how I messed up and think of me as a failure. Or, I can forget yesterday and think all day about what I will do to succeed.

Forgive forget and move on . !!!!!!!

    Forgiving yourself is part of becoming your own best friend. We all struggle, we all slip up, and when we fall off that horse the best thing to do is get right back on again. You've got the right attitude and here's to a better tomorrow! emoticon

    You have the right attitude - tomorrow is another day! And besides, we need rest days, too! emoticon emoticon

    You just need to take a break some days and tell yourself it is ok. One day off does not take away from all your days on! You are doing great and tomorrow is another day! I hope you took a day to rest if that is what you needed! emoticon

    Exactly! You can't beat yourself up over missing the gym for one day. Sometimes you need to listen to your body, and rest. Today is a new day. That's how I'm looking at things today too. I haven't exercised properly in three days, but I also know my body was being pushed to the max. I shall start again today. As can you. I hope you feel better today. We are experiencing quite the heat wave here too, along with crazy amounts of rain!

    Yes, it's been hot here as well and I really don't do well with it. Nor do I enjoy a/c. But it's necessary.

    Life happens, so I wouldn't worry about missing
the gym. I have decided to forgive myself for not
cooking a proper meal today and the excess calories
I ate. It will be another day tomorrow, and I plan
to start afresh. Thanks for the good advice. emoticon
