This past week I've been catching myself getting down and essentially insulting myself for having 55 pounds to lose, even though I've been eating much better and getting more active.
So as I am in the kitchen where I can either raid cabinets or eat something healthy, or as I am getting dressed in my largest of large clothes, or as I walk by a mirror and want to say derogatory things to myself, I instead say, "Just today."
"Just today" is telling me to focus on what I can do today and today only to make my health better.
This means not saying to myself things like, "Wow you've gotten big" as I walk by a mirror, or "I'll just eat this [insert name of food(s) here] and get back on track tomorrow" or "so you've lost 3 pounds but you still have 52 more to go."
As if insulting myself will make 52 pounds magically disappear overnight.
So, fellow Sparkers, "just today" is my mantra that I will continue singing. If I ever get frustrated about my lack of progress, remind me of this, okay?
