Don't ya wish that some days we could have a do-over yet still retain the lessons learned from what we wished we did differently? Yesterday was that for me, so today is a new beginning and a new outlook. I look at the last two days as a shove from behind into the right direction. I reckon I was beginning to get a little lax anyhow, so a tightening up and a big slap of realization was good for me.
If I'm claiming to make a lifestyle change to a better and healthier me, yet throw in the towel when temptation hits, then just how serious am I about the change? My mindset has GOT to be focused on always having to make right choices. Something we were telling my daughter about last night. We gave her a promise ring with lots of explaining and expectations that the ring represents. I reckon I could use a promise ring of sorts for my own self as a reminder to make good life choices.
I remember reading somewhere about a woman who wrote GIW on her hand, so each time she reached for something that was not a good choice, she was reminded, "God Is Watching."
I will find something that will be my "promise reminder."
by the way, Red Lobster was delicious :) and luckily we very seldom go there, so it was a real treat.
also, my Sparkpeople bumpersticker came in. I won it on my sparkwheel, which was cool. I wish I could win a t-shirt, too, but I've only had a shirt on my wheel once.
Have a wonderful day full of good choices in keeping with your promises to yourself!
