It’s time to come clean. I am so embarrassed to admit this, but because I only believe in full disclosure here on my blog, and providing you honest reviews from my heart, I must confess…
I failed miserably this week.
Here are the excuses:
- May is a tough month. Especially this year with my oldest daughter graduating high school. Picnics, birthday parties, end of school year parties, award ceremonies, wedding showers, house warming parties, baseball games, fellowships, going away parties. I have ONE DAY this month where I don’t have anything written in on my calendar. Really tough month.
- I’ve had to eat on-the-go way more than normal this past week, and it’s so much easier to make the wrong choice than the right one.
Because things are so crazy, and I’ve been in a hurry, I haven’t taken the time to make the right choices. Instead, I’ve opted to just eat the food that was made available to me. Or, I’ve ridden through the drive thru for something quick between one appointment to the next.
Now, I’m feeling it. I’m back to being sluggish and feeling miserable all the time. When you eat poorly, you feel poorly. And, I know that. Especially after 2 good weeks of making the right choices!
I didn’t even weigh in today. I don’t want to know what I’ve done to my progress. I am just so disappointed in myself. BUT, like the sign above says, failure is a part of life. It’s how I react to my failure that will determine my success. If I just stop here and continue eating the way I have this past week, I haven’t learned anything. It’s time to buckle down and force myself to truly succeed! If I don’t, I’m never going to reach my goals, and I’m only going to get back on that downhill slope of weight gain and feeling miserable.
I know I can do it. It’s not going to be easy. Not at all. But it’s going to be worth it! When I reach my goals and can fit in that dress that’s hanging in my closet, it will be SO worth it.
So, I failed this week. I’m disappointed in myself. But, I’m going to pick myself up, brush off the dirt, and give it another try.
Stick with me, and help encourage me along the way, will you? Have you ever failed at a change you were trying to make in your life? I’d love to hear about it!
