When You Have a Bad Day

Here’s something that won’t surprise you- I’m not perfect. None of us are, and from time to time we are going to slip up.
For example, I made it my goal this year to try and do some exercise every day. That’s a pretty high bar, and I am approaching a full year of everyday exercise!!! In the beginning, there were days I just couldn’t do it and as time went on I’ve been more and more consistent. I don’t freak out if I am sick or feeling badly… slipping in a quick 15 minutes of yoga or walking is still exercise! Go up the steps at work, whatever you can do to fit it in. You don’t have to run a marathon everyday, just do the best you can.

Also, I am still trying to not eat any fast food or fried fatty foods. Well I continue to blow this one. When I was sick I was totally exhausted and just wanted something fast and filling- so I had Fazoli’s one day and Applebees another and maybe some nachos and Taco Bell. And you know what, they hit the spot at the time!
The most important thing is to not let these bad days derail your whole plan. I have done this in the past… one bad day leads to a week leads to a month. I’m learning resiliency by being able to start each day fresh, and not dwell on my past mistakes.
