Accountability Check-In: Feeling Fantastic Though Sometimes Hungry

Another great day behind me and I don't take it for granted!

Having these accountability check-ins makes all the difference, before and after the check-in. Wanting to give a good report about my food choices at the end of the day keeps me on track during the day, but also after giving my report because I don't want to have to go back and amend it.

Last night, I did my accountability check-in fairly early (afraid I would otherwise forget), and then a little while later, I started to feel terribly hungry, especially when I spent some time on YouTube learning about RĂ©union Island where my daughter is serving on her 18-month mission trip. There was an entire segment on the Island's amazing Creole and French food. I wanted some. Bad. Though I didn't have any on hand, without the motivation of my accountability report, I might have gone off scrounging for a poor substitute in the kitchen. I'm glad I didn't because a little while later, I was off to bed with another successful day under my belt. And that felt like a big, big win.

So, whatever temptations come between now and bedtime, I am going to stay the course, committed to a third day of serious success.

How has your day gone? I'd love to hear.
