I have a confession to make…I really went off the rails last weekend with my eating.
I’m pretty sure I ate everything that crossed my sight. Like Pandora’s Box, once I gave in I just couldn’t seem to contain myself.
Typically this would be a death sentence for my “healthy eating kick”. What’s the point of making good choices now that I’ve had two cupcakes, am I right?
WRONG. I refuse to be trapped in this defeatist way of thinking any longer! It is never too late to live your best life!
Don’t Let One Moment Ruin Your Entire Day
Okay, so you had some cheese fries. Or you didn’t work out today. You were late for an appointment.
Whatever your “failing” was, it is not so bad that you can’t shake it off and get right back on track with your personal goals.
We’re human and we err. Our lives are complicated and sometimes our circumstances hinder our success. Or maybe we just get tired and drop the ball. The reason for the shortcoming isn’t as important as the response to it.
Seize The Next Opportunity To Make A Healthy Choice
You stopped at McDonald’s for breakfast and then you gave in and had those cheese fries for lunch. Now it’s time for dinner and you figure the day is shot anyway, so pizza rolls it is.
STOP. All it takes is ONE decision to make or break the cycle of unhealthy choices. It is never too late.
Leave earlier before your next appointment. Take a walk around the neighborhood this evening. Have some grilled chicken and veggies for dinner instead of those pizza rolls.
An “all or nothing” approach is not compatible with living a well-balanced life.
Every Day Is A Good Day To Live Your Best Life
You see, our personal success isn’t tied to one moment or one decision. It’s about a series of moments and decisions.
If you refuse to give up after a supposed “failure”, eventually you will see a shift in your overall success rate.
The “ruined” days will become less and less. Your confidence and sense of well-being will increase. You will naturally begin to make positive decisions because they will seem normal and attainable, not daunting and ill-fated.
You have to start somewhere. Why not right now?
