30 Bananas a Day!

Lowering Expectations and getting results

I woke up this morning and was looking at the forum and seeing a lot of blogs about people being disappointed at themselves. It was sad to see but it sure rings a bell! Going back and forth with the diet, having crappy symptoms, feeling disappointment, etc. It's a vicious cycle isn't it. I can relate.

Something I've learned, something very important is lowering expectations but getting great results. By not setting some sort of bar or ideal of how I think things should be, I don't set myself up for failure. I end up more pleased with myself for *any* progress I make yet not disappointed and disgusted with myself for a setback or growth spurt in my journey.

So I have been eating some wheat. So what. Well, I know my joints have been really feeling it, I know what I need to do. Get off the wheat. I haven't been "bad". I haven't made a "mistake". This is what I did, for whatever reason, I'm not going to be hard on myself about this, but I'm going to move forward because I know what I need to do to feel good again. I'm not going to promise myself that this is the last time it'll happen. Life happens. I'm not perfect and neither is anyone else.

I accept and embrace what I am and what I'm not. This is me and I'm no better or worse than anyone else. Where some may succeed in one area of life, they are challenged in another. So wherever I am in life, I'm going to enjoy it, and enjoy the precious present moment.
