This was a strong week on plan for me, even though Sunday and Monday were a struggle. I pulled myself out of my rut with a simple challenge. No dessert or sweets for 14 days. I thought about how good I’d feel accomplishing a goal, and those thoughts have helped me to stay on track.
I bought candy for professional development and put it into little cheerful red bags. I really did want a piece of candy but I held onto my resolve and thought about how good it would be to write this post knowing I decided to say, “No.” What a powerful word “No” is. When I say “No” I am taking back control. Things are not just going to happen to me, I am going to decide what I will or will not put into my body. This is my gift to me.
