Thump - me jumping off the wagon. Yay- me being honest in my tracking.
Friday, April 28, 2017
So I gave into the cravings that have been dogging me all week. Yes I did. I knew what I was doing. Made a special trip to buy it. Intentional choice here. No "falling" off the wagon, like it was an accident or someone pushed me. Nope. I jumped off.
In my previous attempts to be healthier, when I used Spark People, I've not documented things like this in my tracker - maybe pretending it didn't happen. Certainly not accepting responsibility for my choice. And I've realized that dropping off of Spark People all together shortly followed.
I took an "I can't do this" approach; an "I just want there to be a magic solution" approach. But there isn't any type of magic pill or other magical solution. It's on me. It's hard work. I can do this.
And if I make a choice to jump off the wagon, I can and will make the choice to be honest, accept responsibility and climb back on.
That's why this time it will be different.
