Phew, I pulled it off, I made it to my 4:30am gym date as I laid out for myself a week and a half ago! I only have to go one day this week so since I went this morning, I can check that off the Four Week Feel Better Plan list! I have to tell you, I was a little bit excited when I packed my gym bag yesterday evening. I saw a little slip of paper that I have my interval training marked on and I really felt excited that sooner rather than later I’ll be back to a point where I can start doing that again.
Around an hour or so later, the negative thoughts started up (because let’s be honest, getting up at 4:25am is no one’s idea of a good time!) and I kept thinking that it’s just one stupid day, what difference would it possibly make. One day doesn’t change anything, one day doesn’t build muscle or chase blues away. One stupid day means nothing.
But that is so, SO untrue! One Stupid Day is the hardest one, every single day after that is easier. Miniscule sometimes, but easier. One Stupid Day builds momentum, slowly as a freight train getting started. Inch by inch.
Please don’t get me wrong, I do not have a good head of steam at the moment with which to drive my momentum freight train. All I know is that I dug in and pulled it one inch today and that means I’m one inch further ahead than I was yesterday.
One Stupid Day really does mean nothing…..if you don’t use it. Use it and One Stupid Day becomes One Successful Day. The initials are the same but that’s where the similarity ends!
