Day 11: This Is About The Time That I Give Up….
Today is the 11th day of the ultimate blog challenge.
I have joined numerous times before and rarely made it past the bewitching day 11….
I would get overwhelmed easily and would throw in the towel.
This time is different. In her daily emails, Michelle Schaeffer writes a little P.S.: take it one day at a time.
How fricking simple and profound! I forgot that I didn’t have to write them all today!
Even though I had a plan; I have not followed it 100%. Instead I have allowed my gut to guide me.
So far, I have only missed 1 day and that is Sunday. It is not perfect but to me it is pretty excellent!
Then I started thinking about all those other things that I could do just for today such as:
1. Plan my tomorrow schedule.
2. Go for a walk after dinner.
3. Say goodbye to gluten. Gluten does not give me pain; but I believe it could be contributing to these stubborn extra pounds. My biggest weakness are the soft pretzels that I encounter at the St. Louis Cardinal games. So, I made a decision to separate myself one day at a time. So far, I haven’t missed a bite!
What does all this one day at a time stuff have to do with the quote above?
Maybe my blogs have typos and maybe I will indulge in that pretzel. Maybe I will forget to take that walk after dinner.
It is ok, because I made a decision to take action one day at a time.
The mistakes are not nearly as devastating as never taking action at all……
So, what is one action that you can take today just for today? Let me know in the comment section below.
