Today is the Day

I am so weak today. My month of no sweets slowly comes to an end and oh my I so want to eat everything I see. I am literally counting down the days until February 1. I will make a dessert that day just for the heck of it. I must eat something sweet. Honey on apple or banana doesn't do it for me anymore. Four full days and then I am ready for a new food challenge.

Today is the day I feel the worst. I have been strong and willing to avoid sweets this month and it's been fine until today. This elimination wasn't difficult but oh my today is the day I feel the weakest and most tempted {and no, I am not PMSing}. 

Today is also the day my favorite person goes back to school. It's going to be a tough semester but this will bring him so much closer to the end. Working and going to school always takes longer, and when the school cuts classes and professors it takes even longer. Yet, he can do this because today is the day he will take one step closer to being stronger, better, and more educated.

Also, today is the day I promised myself to be a better person, not just for me but for my favorite person, my friends, and family. This includes working on a scrapbook, writing more letters, or just cards, no shopping anymore and saving up more so we are ready to move by the end of May. YES, we are moving. We will still stay in the Sacramento area but move more east to a better apartment complex. We are ready to make this move. If we could we would move today, but no one wants and should break a lease so we definitely will stick to our little place we call home and suck it up until May. Three full months. Three full months. Doesn't sound that bad, does it?

Today is the day I am going to enjoy every single moment and not worry about four more sugarless days, or the three months left in our current home. Today is the day I am striving to be a happier person. The next few months will be so much easier and more fun.

Make today the day you choose to be better, stronger, more of something you thought you are not. If I can {and I am the pessimist lately} then so can you!!!

I love this, girlfriend. You WILL achieve all these things because you're strong, you're wonderful, and you're self aware. It's okay to not always be 100% cheerful and excited about everything, but the fact that you're combating it and are working towards happiness shows your inner strength! Your man starting school again will be tough, but five years from now (or one year from now!) it'll make so much of a difference and you won't even remember the difficulty of it. Hang in there - I'm an email away if you need to vent! xox

Had to stop by as we share the same name. Am in awe of the sugar free month, I keep thinking to do that, but it would be so hard, although you are another little push closer for me to give it a trial go. Maybe I should use Feb as it is the shortest month, will ponder on that a while. Will pop back often Selma, love Selma ♥

Selma you have no idea how much I needed this. I have been wallowing in self pity for over a week now. Well no more. Today is the day I stand strong and stop crying about stupid things.

Great post! I've had this same revelation. I've been so sick for so long and just sort of wallowed in it. I woke up yesterday ready to kick my bad attitude. I worked out in the morning and started purging and organizing my bathroom. Those are little things, but it helped.

I'm so happy you're moving soon. You've had the worst experiences in that apartment! Enjoy your sweet treats this weekend!
