Day Three Hundred Fifty…

It’s late. I am going to share a list of things I am grateful for:

  1. My son saw that I was working the day away, sat down next to me and lent a hand. Then he made me a cup of tea.
  2. Later, my daughter saw me at my post behind the computer screen, bought me a seltzer and helped me with my work for a while too.
  3. My husband encouraged me to keep going and did all the other things that have to be done when you have a house and family.
  4. I cooked a healthy dinner and we ate together.
  5. I met my first deadline.

#SelfLoveChallenge

AY 20: Positive self-talk is a very important part of this journey. Speak to yourself as you would a loved one. You would not reprimand the person for gaining weight one week or not tracking the weekend. Concentrate on complimenting yourself today.

I am happy to say that the habits I’ve developed over these past 353 days have helped me to avoid these kinds of slip-ups. Yes, I have gained some weeks but that’s just the body – I can’t control that and I’m ok with it. I’ve said it before, my body doesn’t know it has to perform because it’s Saturday morning at 8:15 am. I can compliment my perseverance.  Even though these past days have been extremely challenging I have not given up. I’m proud of myself for sticking it out even though it’s hard. More tomorrow.
