Sometimes i give in. Despite what i want, and knowing how far i still have to go. i eat that cupcake, i buy the candy bar, drink the wine.... but i dont dwell. Dwelling on that one mistake just continues to rip the wound. Instead I praise myself for acknowledging that it wasn't the best thing to do. And i praise myself for making the right decision the next time. Giving in, is never Giving up.

Every day I plan for what needs to be done and then tick it off my list. That list can be in my head or on paper. Items on list are shower, clean and tidy house, eat 3 meals and 1 or two snacks, drink 8 cups of water daily in any form(herbal tea, water with lime or just water) walk the dogs, deal with interpersonal relationships, budget and pay bills, talk to my soul and pray.
give myself a break when necessary after all I cannot be all things to all people and I am not a machine either.
If I get off track, I do not berate myself. As soon as I can, I get back on track. Broken ankle - gained weight, choice is to give up - NO! Start again. Losing family members to cancer...do not give in....keep going....give myself as much grace as I would give a friend ..start again. I am not a quitter 523
I am not a failure when I fall down. If I get up and get going, I am resilient against circumstances. And yes, I am a winner!
