I love new days and glad I get one every twenty-four hours. I know that may sound funny, but it’s true. Yesterday I did the best I could and still wish I could have done more and better. But it is what it is. Today I have the opportunity to do what I feel needs to be done and will work my best intentions – it’s all I can do.
This morning I read a article in Yoga Journal, Nurture the New You, that reminded me to accept who I am and the choices I make with compassion. This is the way to invoke the positive changes I want to see in my life. I resolve to tell the “parent voice” that I hear in my head to “Be Still” when it starts harping at me. I will take a few minutes at the beginning of the day to state my intentions for the day. At the end of the day I will review my efforts and congratulate myself on what I did well. I won’t condemn myself for those things that didn’t get done – I have tomorrow.
I was glad that I had read this article before I did my weigh in as my weight stayed the same as last week. I was able to look back at my calendar and see that I did get to the gym 4 times; and I have 5 workouts scheduled this week. I am still working on eating every 3 hours, which has proven harder than it sounds when one has a full schedule.
Have a great day and be kind to yourself.
