It's Just One Day

It's Just One Day

Every year my extended family goes to Bear Lake for the day and when we are finished we get shakes. This year our trip occurred during Rx+week. My husband asked if I was going to get a shake. I said no. He replied, "Oh come on now. It's just one day." I passed.

I have been thinking about that statement, "It's just one day," and how just one day is holding me back from reaching my ideal health goals.

I started thinking about all the birthdays, holidays, annual traditions etc., that find me using the excuse, "It's just one day" to justify poor eating choices. So I wrote them down. In my little family of five divine souls, there are 42 "just one days." Start adding the annual vacation, camping trip and extended family functions and that's a whole lot of just one days that usually spill over into one or more days with leftovers.

So anyway with the self-evaluation I have been doing this week, I decided to use "It's just one day" as my mantra. I can choose to pass on the birthday cake, the shake, the smore's, the second serving, the whatever....because after all,

"It's Just One Day."
