Meltdown Challenge: Day 10
All or nothing. That's who I was. If I couldn't do it right, I didn't want to do it at all. I didn't mind adapting, but if I couldn't get the same results as everyone else, forget it.
The challenge asks us to work on small changes instead of an all or nothing total overhaul that may only last a day or two. The thing that bothers me is that the other challengers are interpreting it as making cheat days OK. I don't think that's it. Even if it is, I can't do that. I'm a recovering food addict. Other addicts don't get cheat days; why should I?
My friend Susan and I walked four miles on the Ladiga Trail today. I can push harder and go further when I've got a partner. I'm not going to sit around and wait on someone else, but having a workout partner is better than always being alone.
And so goes hump day.
