Inspired - going thru some rough times? this is a good motivator. For me, inspiration came after some tough times with a boy... and i was looking for something to test my endurance at a me-to-me level (aka distraction + feeling of accomplishment). And here I am about 40-50 glasses of spicy lemonade later, not to mention about 9 pounds lighter, feeling super!
Strategic - choose a period of time when you will be BUSY. my strategy = working like a madwoman, meaning im too busy to eat anyways or cross temptations path.
So, Day 5 complete and feeling like a champ!
And a sidenote on busy lives and challenges in general - I like to quote one of my yoga instructors, Steve Hubbard, with this one, "there hasn't been a time i've grown, that i haven't struggled"... I think thats true. but you don't always grow when you struggle... its rising up to the challenge that redefines you.
I think the universe definitely throws us curve balls unexpectedly every once in a while, sometimes a multitude all at once, just to see how we handle it. TO PERSEVERE. The test of prioritizing, staying focused, calm/cool, and facing your at times overly active, emotional, inconvenient/troublesome LIFE with a smile. Why would you choose a life that is not maximized anyways? Every bruise has a story... and its usually a good one.
Today was one of those days :)
