Yesterday was a 50/50 day. What I mean by this is this.. I went for a 2 mile walk in the morning. It's a lot less then normal but my husband has been coming along and he doesn't walk as much as I do. Then we came home ate breakfast and went to visit one of the newly widowed church members and my kids and I went swimming.. my lunch was good with a fajita pita.. but then towards evening it all went down hill. I got in a funk but instead of going for a walk I had m&ms.. cheese balls.. and popcorn??!! So I went over on calories and carbs and.... today I'm ok with it..., yep you read that right. I'm OK... Why am I ok?? Because this is life.. good, bad, happy and sad. I refuse to beat myself up over some m&m's (and cheese balls and popcorn but you get the picture!) I'm going to eat ice cream! I'm going to go to Olive Garden and have a bread stick! I'm going to have some cake on my birthday! And I'm going to accept it! The Bible says that His mercies are renewed every morning.. so good morning! It's a new day and a new beginning!
Now before you say anything about old habits die hard here is where I know that I have changed. Before I would have thrown my hands up, said "I'm a failure, I can't do this!!" And continued on my destructive path until I undid everything I worked so hard to change. That was the old me... this is the new me. See change is possible!
