If you’ve been following along with me this month, you’ve probably picked up on the theme of this post already. There are good days and bad days. Even more granular … there are good meals and bad meals. What I’m learning about myself is that I can’t get too down because of the lows, and I shouldn’t be too excited about the highs. Yes – I will make bad decisions and have days that are less successful, but I can’t let that get me down. That hit me hard two days ago. On the other hand, I can’t feel as though I’ve won or hit the target because of one good day or meal.
And it goes a little deeper than that too. Is health and wellness a goal with a clear finish line? I posit that it’s not. There is no moment when you can say, “I reached my goals. I have achieved fitness and health and can now live freely.” This is more of a lifelong marathon. There is no time at which I can feel that I’m done – “check this one off the list.” Rather, the finish line is getting to a point when I fully understand my own limitations and make the best decisions for my health more often than I don’t. THAT, to me, is the finish line. And I have a long way to go!
And that brings us to today. Yesterday was a pretty successful Monday. I need to back it up with another good day. How did I do?
- Breakfast. It wouldn’t be me if it weren’t my Fiber One bar.
- Lunch. I made a salad with chicken made in the AirFryer, romaine (that is hopefully clear from any contaminants), celery, zucchini, too much shredded cheddar, and some lite Italian dressing. Doing well so far.
