Four days in to the new year and my journey back to health and I already feel frustrated.  I have not been eating as I should and, while I have been doing a lot of cleaning and organizing in my house, I have not gone for the walks as often as I would like.  I am struggling with giving in to my sweet tooth, not drinking enough water, and carb heavy food choices.

Sometimes life gets in the way.  I have to remind myself that it has only been one short month since the birth of my second child and the traumatic events that followed.  That I also have a five year old demanding my attention.  In an ideal world, you plan ahead so you have healthy foods ready to go for when things get crazy.  This is not an ideal world.  I have to remind myself that if I can’t plan ahead or things simply don’t go according to plan, DO NOT BEAT YOURSELF UP!

Like Thomas Wayne always said: “Why do we fall?  So we can pick ourselves back up.”  It is ok to have a bad day every now and then.  The goal is to continue to try and string together more good days than bad days until healthy eating and planning ahead is just your way of life!  Do not let your bad days get you down.  Tomorrow is a new day to pick yourself up and do better than before!
