I have noticed a pattern in my life.
Whenever I make progress in goals related to health...
I suddenly find myself creating obstacles to sabotage any further progress.
This past week was no different.
After 7 days of no-sugar...
along with some real results from participating in Rhonna's six week shape-up...
the sabotaging began.
I justified it would be okay to eat the french toast & syrup when we went to Sugar Mill for breakfast on Saturday.
Afterall...we went to a "pancake" house for crying outloud...it was a completely necessary sacrifice on my part to be fully engaged in the experience with my family. right?
We ended up picking up Popeyes for dinner that night. *sticking finger in my mouth while making a gagging sound*
And even after a weekend filled with sabotage...
I found myself digging out the cupcakes I'd been saving in the freezer and polished those off too.
Well guess what today is?
Today is "Check-in Tuesday" over on Rhonna's site.
Even though I was checked-out all weekend...
it's now time to "man up" and confess my weaknesses...
admit to the multiple infractions I willingly participated in...
(I LOVE accountability) *wink*
Following the check-in...
It'll be time to:
Let. it. go.
It's time to move on.
It's time to be better.
Today is a new day and I'm determined to finish the next 6 weeks STRONG!
Let's face it.
We all have weaknesses...challenges, hurdles, etc.
However, we each have the ability to turn those weaknesses into opportunities...
Opportunities for growth, strength, and fortitude.
I could use a bit more of each of those!
How about you?
What's tripping you up?
Holding you back?
Making you feel weak?
I challenge you to look it straight in the eyes...
multiple times over if you have to...
and do what it takes to turn it into a strength.
Don't let it keep you from being the very best "you"...
the "you" you are supposed to be!
Wishing us each strength in whatever capacity we are in need of right now!
KEEPING iT REAL
my mind is all over the place lately.
Researching packaging options for the party product I've been keeping secret for awhile has me pulling out my hair.
But...I can tell you Ella's party will finally be revealed this week...
in conjunction with an announcement I'm beyond thrilled about!
