Last week I announced that I was in a weight loss challenge with a friend. I had a rough week 1 and vowed to have a much better week 2. I was going to be prepared for all roadblocks and overcome them with ease. The result… worse than the week before(+2 pounds). Worst of all, I publicly proclaimed that last week was going to be my comeback week. Imagine my embarrassment!
Where did I go wrong? It was on the weekend. I escorted my fiance to a party on Friday. I called it my cheat day, and said the next day would be so much better. But it wasn’t, neither was Sunday!
Does this mean that I am a failure? No, it just means that last week’s performance was a failure! You need to have the vision to separate the person from the performance and criticize your actions and choices, not you as a person. I made more than a few poor decisions and I need to live with the results. No Excuses! I am a flawed super hero at best :).
This week will be my bounce back week(Stop me if you’ve heard this before)! I will come up with a better strategy and stick to the plan. I know I said this last week, but I’ve got to start sometime, right?
Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you soon 🙂
