Starting Over

I enjoyed a wonderful start to the day-healthful breakfast, run/walk with my baby in the jogging stroller, marking tasks off my check list, hanging out with Bek. It was great! When my little guy went down for his nap, I had momentum. I cleaned the windows and then...got distracted. I sat down with an apple to watch an episode of one of my favorite shows (just one of course). Well, one turned to two and the apple turned into a bag of chips. WHAT HAPPENED!?!? I was kinda frustrated with myself when my baby woke up and I hadn't gotten everything done and my stomach hurt a little from the chips. I realize this post is kinda sounding like true confessions but stick with me I have a point. In the past when this has happened I've thought, "Ah, I already ruined my healthy day; why not have some ice cream too." Please tell me I'm not the only one. :) Today was different. I thought, "Why beat myself up over a stupid bag of chips and wasted time? I'm just going to start over." While I didn't get as many things accomplished today as I would have liked, I didn't spend my day feeling guilty for "messing up." You don't have to have a new day, week, month, or year to start over. Just start from where you are and don't feel guilty about what you can't change.

I just love running moms!
