Thoughts From the Coffee Table: If you are counting my Gold Stars, I am now at 35 days in a row. It hasn’t been easy and it definitely not pretty.
To earn a Gold Star I have to exercise, meditate, and journal. Sunday I tried to convince myself that laundry was exercise.
I looked myself in the mirror, had a difficult conversation, and got out my weighted hula hoop. Yes, I am weird.
I decided to try the Keto Reset Diet, which totally makes sense 2 weeks before Thanksgiving. I know I can’t keep it up on the road next week. So I wonder about why I do these things.
Breakfast today was a Ginger Beet Smoothie. With kale. I almost didn’t make it. I almost didn’t even taste it. But it was good!
Why am I writing about this? On my walk this morning I contemplated how I try to be perfect. Like with my Gold Stars. Giving myself a break seems like a cop-out.
This book is has made me think. I don’t know that I could or want to do this every day. I kind like carbs. But 3 days in, 3 lbs down, and way more positive energy, maybe even not “perfect” can be enough.
Maybe the Ginger Beet Smoothie is just one more step in the right direction. One Gold Star at a time is good.
And maybe one day I will drink a Michelob Ultra. Or maybe not.
