Do These Four Simple Things Today!
Broken eggs and a perfect day
by Kaye Bailey
The old wisdom warns that trouble comes
in threes and I've found it to be more true than not. It seems if my
day gets off to a rocky start things are unlikely to improve as one
problem leads to the next. Maybe, like me, you have all the desire in
the world to get your day off to a great start doing what is necessary
to support your WLS goals and then, as the saying goes, life happens and
off track we go. In the 5 Day Pouch Test
we use the metaphor of broken eggs: if we drop one egg from the carton
and it breaks we don't discard the rest of the eggs. We clean the mess
and move forward understanding that broken eggs happen but one broken
egg is not worth spoiling the whole dozen. In the day-to-day of living
we can apply the metaphor and rationalize that one oops in a day doesn't
mean the entire day is a disaster. But sometimes it is easier said than
done, at least for me.
if we had a sure-fire strategy to start the day with four easy actions
that support our big picture goals of weight loss and weight management
using the WLS tool? If we've already accomplished four simple actions in
favor of a good day won't those help shield us from the bumps and
bruises of the daily "broken eggs" we are bound to encounter?
Inspired Reminders Bulletin offers four easy, quick, and affordable
things we can all do to prepare the way for a perfect WLS day. I invite
you to try these four little actions every day for one week and just see
what a wonderful world of success opens for you as you pursue the best
life, Living INSPIRED After WLS.
