Day 546: A Milestone...
Saturday, July 05, 2014
I don't do streaks well.
I suspect it's mixed up with an all-or-nothing mentality with perfectionism thrown in. You know. A or F, and it darned well better be the perfect A.
Add sore loser to the mix: if it's not a perfect A / blue ribbon / I win, I'll take my toys and go home.
Where can I share my (ahem) quirks 'n' foibles if not here?
The past twelve months have been unbelievably - no other word for it - hellish. If the stresses and strains don't shorten my life by a good few years, I'll be surprised.
Every day I've checked into SP. I've tracked my food and (when I've actually done any exercises!) my fitness. I've tracked my blood sugar levels (they have been better, truth be told) and my personal goals.
Today is 500 days of my checking-in streak.
It's tiny, in the grand scheme of things. It's insignificant. Nearly meaningless.
I didn't set out saying to myself "Oh, I'll shoot for 500 days in a row." Day built upon day, and here I am. If ever I needed proof that bit by bit, the little steps add up, there it is.
It's a milestone. Not a great one, but a good one.
G'night, Sparklers, wherever you are.
