Every Day is a Lesson

Every Day is a Lesson

Last week I learned that I'm not a natural horseback rider. Some folks can get on and immediately go heels down, hands in proper placement and are in tune with the horse. Me? I run a checklist in my head like a stream from Netflix and the only way I'm in tune with the horse is that fact we both like apples. After a disastrous lesson in which I couldn't get Sassy to go in a straight line to save my life, I hung up my spurs (metaphorically, I don't wear spurs-I'd hurt myself). I told the instructor I'm fine with not doing any more lessons. Nada. I quit. I'm outta here.*

I realized it's the same way with my weight loss. Call it frustration, lack of ability or motivation, or a hundred other things, but I get to a certain point and let go.

I've been feeling so smug, like I was unbreakable and I wanted to tell the world about my will of iron. But when faced with a box of donuts at work, I'm a pushover. I didn't "need" them, I truly didn't want them. But you know how the story goes.

Today is a new day.

*Postscript: I got on the horse again; trotted, cantered, the whole nine yards. A new day makes a world of difference.
