Well, I knew it would come. The day I just couldn't keep it together. We all have them and yesterday was mine. I had furious cravings that just wouldn't turn me lose. I tried to deny them for as long as I could but when I couldn't take it anymore I had the foods/drink I wanted. What's been my problem in the past is that when its happened I've felt so guilty that I would berate myself to no end which would then lead me to give up altogether. This time I was mentally prepared for the fall. As much as I'd like to think that I would never make mistakes, I, like everyone else did. The difference this time is that that was yesterday and today is a new day. What happened in my past doesn't have to negatively effect the rest of the journey but become a lesson. The lesson I learned from this episode is that I don't have to feel so guilty that I take my spirit to such a low point that it won't allow me to rise for weeks or months at a time. I messed up yesterday and today I'm back in the saddle. So let's ride!
