Hello there, hope you are having a good day!
Today’s spiritual principle is self-discipline. Wow, some days that is a tough one! But, I am a lot better at it than I use to be. What I am working on today is: not drinking as much soda and drinking water instead. It seems very difficult. And the weird part is, I have already given up drugs/alcohol over 7 1/2 years ago, I stopped smoking 8 months ago and I quit drinking coffee the end of March. So it’s not like I don’t have practice at changing my habits and doing what is better for me. What I have found though is that each new thing that I try to stop doing is just a difficult as the others, if not more so.
I downloaded the “MyFitnessPal” app on my phone today to help me keep track of my intake and exercise. I am hoping that since I will be keeping track of everything, that I won’t just automatically get a soda, because that is my MO. I will go into the kitchen for something to drink and just pour me some soda with out even thinking about it. Progress not perfection is ok with me today.
