Little Victories

From my morning jog. So pretty!

I don't know about y'all but last week was a tough one for me. Not quite sure why, actually. It just seemed harder than it should have been. I have a sneaking suspicion it was due to my own laziness, but that's a whole other post. Regardless of my self-inflicted frustrations, Mondays around here all about celebrating the little victories that make great progress possible. I share a handful of mine in the hopes that you will take the time to notice yours (and even share them here!). 

*I added a tracker thingy to my phone. I'm not very technological. Well, I could be but I don't want to be- it's true. I'd rather be snuggled up listening to a record than beep beep booping on a plethora of devices. However, since I really do want to get back to my old fighting weight, I downloaded an app to track my caloric intake and fitness. It's daunting but it sure is enlightening!

*I went to talk to someone about taking tap dancing lessons. It's something I've always wanted to do. I don't think I can afford her class, but I'm seriously considering buying the shoes and teaching myself! Stay tuned on that front!

*I took my own advice. I do that pretty regularly actually, but I did it. My head was feeling cloudy about stuff (as tends to happen sometimes) and when that happens I tend to zone out. There is so much static in my head that I can't concentrate (hence the laziness from the previous week). Laundry piles up, I don't cook as much, I don't watch my money as closely as I should, yadda yadda yadda. It's kind of a cycle of mine. Anyway, I gave this advice to a dear friend and then lo and behold found I could use it myself. I sat down and wrote out in bulleted form what was on my mind. Usually I write down ways to remedy the situations at hand, but just writing it all down helped immensely. To see in tangible form what was making all the noise in my head, helped to quiet it all down. It's not much, but it worked. That's what little victories are all about, right?

What are some of your little victories last week? I'd love to know!

I hope you have a truly wonderful day!
