Tuesday morning I woke up quite determined to do better. Kristen wrote a post about changing just one thing and when I read it, it struck a chord with me as I've been desperately trying to up my water intake. Sometimes we view this whole process of life as something that we have to take in big chunks and do many changes at once so we can hurry up and finish. But truth is that one little change can set you on the path towards the larger overall changes you need. Honestly I didn't want perfection, I just wanted better than what has been going on for months. By the end of the day, I had eaten a reasonable amount of food, gone to a Muay Thai class and drank 12 glasses of water! All good. After Muay Thai and dinner I was reading the newspaper and half watching TV and decided I wanted a little something, so I got up and went to my hidden stash of candy and took out two pieces of Dove Dark Chocolate. Sometimes this might be a trigger for me to go get three or four more but I really felt strong and determined and I knew instead of just chomping that chocolate in one big bite I would put it in my mouth and let it melt and really savour it. And that's what I did.
You know how karma will sometimes just show it's face, to make sure you're paying attention? Let me just say when the two pieces of chocolate were done and I picked up the wrapper and thought to read the 'Promise' inside, I cracked up laughing!
