A kernel of success in the middle of failure..
Saturday, April 18, 2009
You know, failure is not really a word in my vocabulary. Oh, I can get down on myself and think bad things about myself, but ultimately, I have learned in my almost 50 years on this earth that beating myself up is counterproductive to success, so when I find myself doing it, I usually put a stop to it pretty quickly. So, when I go through a span like I have in the last week or so, where for reasons I can't explain I can't reign in the eating, I have to work hard to find a reason to not beat the he!! out of myself.
I have and thought I would share it with you..and here it is:
this week, despite eating awfully, I still have exercised every single day.. This is good because I haven't thrown the baby out with the bathwater.. It is good because I have managed to keep that part of my program strong. And whatever the reasons that I've been way over indulging in food, I have kept my psyche in touch with this journey..and at some point, the rest of it will come back around and fall into place. I have faith in myself and my ability to turn it around. And I will.
