“We fail everyday.”
~Anthony Miller, on the series Ruby
So for the last week I had daily sugary desserts. Monday through Thursday the training luncheons had cakes, cookies, & other assorted goodies. Friday was my niece’s birthday party where I indulged in the traditional cake & ice cream (as well as pepperoni pizza & non-diet coke>_<), Saturday I had chocolate chip cookies, & Sunday there wasn’t anything special but I was on a roll & craving sugar so I dug around & found & some cinnamon rolls in the fridge. Beyond just the sugar, I have gone well over my daily points so far & chewed through my weekly points & meager activity points already. Boo.
I have three days left in this tracking week & weigh-in Thursday evening. Today I am refocused & committed to staying OP & earning enough AP in those three days to balance out the overage in my WPA. It’s 16pts, so very doable before Thursday.
Now off I go!
Note about the quote I used: I have been watching Ruby from the beginning & this “quote” *ahem* (I’m going off my memory from last night, so it’s close enough…) He says this to her while they are discussing her bedroom makeover & he wants her to get rid of her old clothes, but she wants to hold on to them “just in case” she fails because she has so many times before. He tells her then that we all fail everyday, but… then he trails off. I assume he was going to finish with something like but we get back up & try again. I found it very inspirational because it tells us failure isn’t the huge ordeal some of us (me) make it out to be (usually). We try, we fail, we keep trying. It’s the nature of life & how we learn. So, it seemed appropriate for today.
