Forgive and forget
On Tuesday nights I run. This last Tuesday night I was exhausted. I threw in the towel and didn't run. Normally I would have beat myself up over this, felt like I had ruined the whole weak, and would have given up trying. This time, I forgave myself for a night off and went back to work the next day instead of dwelling on my "failure." I have realized to maintain these habits long term there are going to be some slip ups and rather than focusing on them and giving up, I am going to move on and focus on the successes. It felt great to go to bed early for once and when I did run again it was a good experience. I am not going to let little exercise and diet mistakes take away from the amazing progress I have made!
