Some days this healthy living business is a piece of low-fat cake.
You wake with energy. The food that you’re supposed to eat actually appeals to you. That piece of exercise equipment you dislike the least welcomes you like a dear old friend.
Those are the days that make you feel like you’ve rounded the corner to... well, if not Easy Street, then at least Not-So-Difficult Street.
I don't like to throw cold water on you or anything, but SPLASH!
No matter how firmly you believe you got this, chances are you’ll trip up on occasion, your beautiful swam dive will transmogrify into a big ol’ belly flop. You’ll go through periods where you honestly believe you’ll never get it right again.
Some days you start stumbling from the day's first step.
You wake up with the blah’s and things go downhill from there. The good healthy food in front of you goes down like packing peanuts. Exercise isn't even an option.
My point? This journey isn’t defined by a good day or a bad one, any more than your life ought to be determined by a number on a scale.
Some days will be good. Enjoy them. Celebrate them. Appreciate them.
Some days will suck. Endure them. Get through them. Shrug 'em off.
Good days. Bad days. They're just days, you know. Do what you can to keep a good attitude, to not let the bad days get you too far down and not let the good days get you too overconfident.
They’re just days. Never as good as you want. Never as bad as they seem.
Days are what you make of them.
Make today great.
