When I was starting out the challenge, I wondered if it was something I could do. I was not 100% sure of myself or my abilities then, but I jumped in with two feet mostly because I respond well to this tactic, and I also admire (& appreciate) the one who threw the gauntlet.
It turns out I could meet the challenge, and had been doing pretty well (ok, darn good), but I got a little sidetracked when I had a little medical issue. I made it through Day 10, but had to stop there. Drats. I've now missed 3 consecutive days out of necessity, but it still irritates me a bit to know that I am missing out. Moreover, when I begin again, and this may be the most crushing part, I've got to start back at ground zero - meaning Day 1. Does that bite or what?
I'm still getting over my illness, but when I am better I will be back. There's no doubt about that.
In the meantime, I am working on what I can control. I am trying to eat more small meals throughout the day and sop up water like a camel. It doesn't feel easy to do, but I am working on it.
Hubby and I ordered Chinese food the other night. I, a former duck sauce fiend, tossed all the sauces, the fried noodles and eggroll in the trash. I ordered soup for me and steamed chicken and veggies. What kind of value was duck sauce adding to my life? nothing. Making decent progress in the food area. Read through all the fortunes before tossing those out too. The best one was "Your Plans Will Succeed."
