I'm feeling slightly more motivated. Slightly. I have to admit the water didn't go well yesterday, I was so busy first thing in the morning that it through my whole day off. Also, I hit up the vending machine again. So, today I remembered to leave my wallet in my car. This has almost always been effective for me.....that is, until I forget it's in my car and go into a store and can't find it. Whoops.
Anyway, today I promised my amazing friend that I would focus very much on what I could do instead of what I can't do. I feel a more positive attitude just typing that.
What I can do, easily: Drink all my water. I love water. I really really do, this should not be an issue for me.
What I can do: I can stay out of the vending machine. For me it is simply a matter of habit, and truly getting past this week of the month. It's pre TOM week and I'm smart enough to know that's what it is by now.
What I can do: I can have a more positive attitude about this. I've been pretty grumpy about it, forcing myself. It feels wrong. No, I'm not quite ready to jump in with both feet, but I AM ready to start.
What I can do: I can be kind to myself. I can stop saying things like "if I wasn't such a cow" or "I've got enough flubber to jump to the moon. Twice.".
What I can do: I can continue reading your blogs. They inspire me. They remind me that I once did this. They remind me that everyone struggles, but we can't give up.
Thank you so much for everything you do, without even realizing it.
