Getting Back on Track

I'm tired of saying this but it's about time that I got back on track. My phone turned up in the mail a few days ago so I've now got everything I need to stay on top of the game. Unfortunately yesterday was a real mess for me. I only got about four hours sleep, but still spent close to ten hours forcing my way through work and destroying my body on the way through sugar, fat, and booze. I even had a moment where I looked in the mirror and hated what I saw looking back at me. It was a wake-up call to say the very least.

I really don't want the person I look at in the mirror to be me. I want to change that. I want to be happy with who I am. The good news is that it is entirely possible of course. I just need to stop giving in to life. Having a bad day isn't an excuse to pig out. It's a challenge I need to overcome. I need to be able to go through a bad day without making mistakes, and show life that I'm not going to give in. Not anymore. That's not who I want to be, and it's not who I am.

I'm booking a driving lesson for next week. I'm going to pass my test on the second try. I will drive my family to our family holiday in August. I will drive my cats to and from the cattery before - and after - we leave. I will stick to my diet. I will lose weight. I will work hard.

I will.

The only thing I won't do is give up, because giving up is for quitters and I'm tired of being a quitter.

  1. Self-loathing seems to be always hovering in the background for a lot of adults I know. People are kind of screwed up. But the really great ones are able to keep enough interest and wonder in life to keep moving forward meaningfully.

    Your goals sound fantastic.
