Be easy on myself

Sunday, December 04, 2011

So, after yesterdays first blog post and confession, I had to walk away from the computer for awhile. First, to take some deep breaths, and second, to stop myself from deleting my first post! Words have such power and once they are spoken they can't be taken back. I had to give myself time to adjust to the fact that my truth was now out there for all the world to see. Frankly, I'm still adjusting. Last night, I ate more than I should have, but then spent extra time on the exercise bike. And I forgave myself for the bad food choice, rather than giving in to negative thoughts. I also starting reading 'The Spark' which I am finding very helpful. One day at a time I keep telling myself:) I can do this!!

    Congratulations on giving your truth a voice! As you may have noticed, the sky did not fall, people do not think less of you, and you are still alive... and, hopefully, the power the words have this time empower YOU!

    Best wishes on your healthy lifestyle journey! Not just one day at a time, but sometimes one meal, one step, one breath at a time!

    You're right - you CAN do this!!!
