Tell Me Your Small Win
Wednesday, October 07, 2015
Yesterday I received distressing news at work. Don't be concerned, it's nothing earth-shattering. You know the news where you're not happy about it, but you'll get over it. I'll shake it off.
After I received the news I kept thinking about going home to eat. Or drink. Wine. A lot of wine! But when I got home I made the choice to stay on program. Stuffing food in my mouth was not going to change what's happening, but it would be a set back towards my goals. I decided work doesn't get to have that power over my goals.
This morning I was down 0.8 pounds. And I gotta tell you, I'm feeling pretty pleased about my choice and the result. It's a tiny win. I know it's tiny. I know in the grand scheme of things that 0.8 pounds is a drop in the bucket.
And then I thought...but isn't our entire journey these tiny wins? We don't celebrate them enough. Tell me your small win! It's a win! We deserve to celebrate it!
