Today just wasn’t my day. I was sore from yesterday (my body soreness has still not gone away), I didn’t eat healthy because I was out in the city again and I’m not feeling so amazing about it all at the moment.
I feel like it’s been three days of no self control-although I know that’s only the negative version and the Ed version of things.
The other version could be: three days including National Donut Day, trying the mystery cupcake challenge and going out and having fun with my friends.
And for now, I am going to leave today at that.
While it’s easy to only look at a negative viewpoint because it might come more natural, for me, it’s worth doing the mental work to see it another way.
It took me a moment to step back and see the other version, but I do see it. I might not feel it 100% and might not even believe it all the way, but the fact is that I see it. And I acknowledge that it’s realistic, even if Ed doesn’t think so. That’s something I could not have done a year ago and for that, today is a success.
Today I pick the other version-my version-the real life version-and not Ed’s version.
