Day 6 & 7 of 21 Day Challenge!

Woo hoo guys!  Week one is done!  How did it go?  I’m so proud of myself for not cheating and not losing my mind!  I was kind and didn’t chew anybody’s head off!  Just ask my husband:)  Seriously, the first week is the hardest week.  I hope you felt as victorious as I did.  But even if you didn’t and you had a horrible start, we still have two weeks to go.  You can do it.  Start fresh, and start over…NOW!

I love the word journey because it implies that we have not arrived yet.  You could be in the beginning, middle, or towards the end and we will still have lots to learn.  Enjoy the ride.  Learn to accept where you are.  Learn to give yourself grace.  We’re the hardest on ourselves.  Take a deep breath and tell yourself, “It’s going to be OK.”

Enjoy the weekend!  Plan for success.  If you’re going out, eat before or pack snacks.  If you’re going to a restaurant, don’t be afraid to be high maintenance and ask for your food to be cooked as clean as possible.  I just came back from Starbuck’s with a girlfriend and had a fruit cup and water.  I was a boring date but we had great conversation.  Focus on other more meaningful things other than food.

Keep it moving.  Do some yoga, hike, jog, dance, swim, run, whatever it is you enjoy to do, just do something!
