Not every day…

13 comments
Not every day starts out great.  Not every day starts out spectacular.  Not every day turns out like you expected.  Not every day will be great.

Everything happens for a reason.

Some day's you will believe this, other days you will not.  But try your damn hardest to remember…not every day will be great.

You may wake up recharged and full of VROOM, VROOM!  You may wake up and say “This is the day I take back control!!”…

But then…something happens.  Something small like someone refilling the candy basket at work, or something big like learning the ill news of a dear friend….

Not every day will be great.

You may be on a streak, a long one or a short one but a streak none the less.  A streak of greatness and empowerment.  A streak that makes you feel like you are the king of the castle and NOTHING…I mean NOTHING can stop you…
But then someone just makes one comment or one remark…and your streak comes to a sudden halt.

Not every day will be great.

You will get on that scale and it will be your best friend. But you get on it the next day, and well...

Not every day will be great.

You will track all the way up until dinner. Not every day will be great.

You will get to the gym a few times but skip your favorite class.  Not every day will be great.

You say you will just have a few chips, but then the bag is gone.  Not every day will be great.

You will say to yourself….I’VE LOST 101 (insert your own weight loss here) LBS GODDAMNIT !! But still…

Not every day will be great.

You will fuck up.  You will fall.  You will slip.  You will stumble.  That is how it goes.  That is what makes us stronger and that is what makes us FIGHTERS!  The minute you think you will be perfect is the minute you take the road towards failure. 

Many days you will wake up saying “this day will great!” and hopefully, if you are lucky and work hard, 85% of them will be…but just remember something very, *VERY* important…

Not ever day will be great. 

But that is OK.

  6. Too true Suzie. I'm just learning this after expecting my weight loss trip to be as I want it. Unfortunately, I'm tripping regularly, but usually just for one day :-)

  11. Thank you for this post. I truly needed it. I've been at lifetime for 8 months after losing 120lbs. Up until the last month things were going really well. But I've started letting some bad habits creep back in, and for the first time since reaching lifetime I'll have to pay for being over by more than 2lbs (missed last weeks meeting due to kids being out of school). I'm not happy about it but I've owned up to it, and I've reversed the direction that things were headed in.
