A Special Event
Tuesday, November 08, 2011
I have a very special event coming up. I have always dreamed of going on a Mediterranean Cruise, and now I have the opportunity to go! It is a little bit of a Cinderella story, really. Just when I wasn't looking, I met somebody incredible. I have fallen in love, and now we are taking a dream vacation together in June of 2012.
On hearing about the trip, I immediately jumped into this old thought pattern that said "you'd better lose some weight before the cruise!" Woah! What happened to lifestyle changing? That seemed like my old voice in my head, and I realized that I had to quiet it. When I did that, I realized that I just had to continue on the path that I already am on. I have to make good choices every day so that I can continue to live a vibrant, healthy life with this person. I have to forget the "diet" and continue making more good choices and fewer poor ones so that I will feel good about myself every day, not just for a week on a cruise ship!
