We all have to start somewhere
Wednesday, April 27, 2011
Every day I wake up and ask myself, "Where am I starting today?".
Am I starting over? Am I starting on step 3? Did I lose ground yesterday?
Lately, I have been answering with "I don't know where to start", which to me is NOT an acceptable answer! This morning I woke up and asked myself, "Where am I starting today?". My answer was not the same as it has been for the past month. I am two months away from my wedding. I am starting my 8th lifting program this week, and I am back on the perverbial wagon (being conscious of my eating) again.
The thing is that I don't think I completely fell off this time. I think it was one of those scenes where I am hanging on to the window by one hand, with one foot hanging on while the other is dragging helplessly on the ground. We have all seen those kinds of scenes! The cool part is that I think I figured out how to pull myself back on before I truly lost my grip.
So, my answer to myself today was, "I am starting right where I am today!".
There is nothing I, you, or anyone can do about choices made in the past. There is only what we can choose for today and tomorrow. Life goes too fast to dwell on yesterday. If you try you WILL miss something! So, maybe that hand full of m&ms along with that ice cream wasn't the best decision. Today I will make sure that I make a better choice for myself.
Where are you starting today?
