I Slipped but did not Fall

Friday, August 21, 2009

I tried something different for me this week - I sat down and set out several small goals for each day instead of focusing on my one major goal to lose weight. Started on Monday and Tuesday I slipped. I had a frustrating meeting, and as I was exiting the building the street vendor was on the corner and I ate a hot dog. Because? Because, of course, that would somehow make me feel less frustrated. Yucky processed unhealthy food, but street vendor hot dogs are the best. Of course, I then wanted to beat myself up on side and down the other for the rest of the day. But this time instead of doing that I simply went back to my list of goals and focused on those, and it really helped. I slipped, acknowledged it, journaled some ways to deal with the same situation in the future, and let it go. And yesterday, I had another frustrating meeting, left the building and walked right by the same street vendor without even thinking about stopping. I learned some things about myself, and I have to say I'm a little bit proud of myself right now.
