Yesterday sucked. Like, legitimately, healthy living wise, it sucked. Seeing friends and working wasn’t the bad part is was the no-exercise-stuff my face part.
Instead of going for a run, this was my morning:
Note: I love that my boyfriend has AAA and did not kill me when I woke him up at 5:45 this morning to call them.
This is how my day ended:
So I got no run, and then I stuffed my face, I would call that a bad healthy living lifestyle day.
This is how I started today:
If there is anything I believe it is that every day is a new day. Sometimes we’re really going to mess up, sometimes we need to mess up to feel a little more human, it’s okay. One day doesn’t ruin every thing I’ve done, it means I had a bad morning, that made me miss my run, and that in the evening I really needed an awesome brownie. Did it fix the day? No, but, it was a really awesome brownie.
I go into each day thinking it’s a game. Some days I win, some days I lose, but every day starts over. In my old way of thinking I would be on a diet, eat something like the brownie, then feel guilty for days or weeks. That guilt would only lead to eating worse food. Completely counter productive.
The difference now is that I am not on a diet, I am having a lifestyle change. I’m not perfect, no one is, I’m going to make mistakes- I’m going to have really crappy days- oh well, each day is new. I won’t dwell, I won’t even think about it today, I already started my day on a good note, and it is going to continue to be positive.
I am 100% in control of my choices and of my attitude. Today, and the rest of the week, will be positive because I will make it positive. I am in control.
How do you control your attitude?
Do you think you have the ability to be happy even after a bad day?
