The Battle Wages...

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

Yesterday I had terrific day and cruised into the evening with confidence that all would end well. Then at 9:30 I ate M&Ms with whipping cream. Whaaaat? Crazy! Lost that skirmish!

I didn't sleep well last night as DH is enroute to Rwanda so this morning when it was time to get up to run I had SUCH a BATTLE of the mind! In the end I got up 15 minutes later to prep to run, even though I was all by myself and could do whatever I wanted to. After downing my oatmeal I again had the battle in my mind...could I just "not" today? Could I somehow make up for it later today? The excuses and self pity flew fast and furiously. It's amazing how many alternative activities I can conjure up when in avoidance mode. :)

Then, I sensed the Push...so out the door I went and...what JOY to be met with unexpected cool air and pretty streaking clouds. This skirmish was WON. Will tonight's battle be won? I pray it is. In the end, The Battle is already won. May I walk in its victory.

May you and I have victory in this battle...one skirmish at a time.

    Good for you Judi, I know that feeling should I or shouldn't I- always feels good when you do.
    Keep up with all your hard work.

    Way to do it. Press the button in your mind that says DO IT! I find it works for me (most of the time anyway) Some days I don't push it firmly enough but next time I certainly do.

    Hoping your husband will be back home soon with you safe and sound!
