What a refreshing feeling this is. I "blew" my plan yesterday (well, relatively speaking) and I'm not even phased by it. I've just shrugged it off to being a bad day, and here I am again, ready to focus. Maybe we all need a day or two like that, so that we can come back with a vengeance.
Having said that, it's the "after lunch" period right now, and I am suffering for some chocolate. I'm chewing gum like a fiend, in an effort to distract myself. You'd think I was trying to quit smoking or something. Well, no joke, I am trying to kick bad habits so that it isn't too far off from what I'm doing. Isn't this ridiculous?
Sometimes I wonder how I got myself into this situation in the first place. Was all that chocolate really worth this now? Those pizza nights, those extra scoops of ice-cream, the Chinese noodles? So. NOT. worth. it. But there's no point in dwelling on the past - I made some bad choices, and now I'm going to work for as long as it takes to undo the damage. At least this is one thing in life that I can actually reverse, right?
I can't believe I'm 40 + days into this journey. Those baby steps sure do add up.
I'm off to get another piece of gum.
