I failed…

Last night…  I had way too much to eat, and a slab of chocolate before I left for work.  And you know what?  It tasted sooo good.  But, half the amount of food would’ve tasted just as good.

So, today, I have to pick myself up again and work out a strategy to continue on the path of losing some weight.

It is so hard, because when I am hungry – well, I am hungry.  And I want to eat.  And even if I don’t want to eat, I have to because well I am hungry.

So, this morning, I have a bottle of water on my desk – and I am going to increase my consumption of H2O and stop thinking about food until it is lunchtime.

But here’s the personality trait I am working on: tenacity.  While I may have failed last night in my attempts to eat a healthy portion size, and to stop when full, I am not giving up.  Not yet – I haven’t even begun to really battle this issue, because if I had – I would be the victor.

I would be here recording my progress and my victory, and not my failure.  But, it is so important to keep things in perspective.

So, today I am going to focus on my tenacity and on building a trait that says, “Never give up.  Never surrender“…  Keep on walking on.
