Last month, I made myself a promise to use Slingshot Week to celebrate how far I have come on my journey including reminding myself to see my success. In defense of my forgetfulness, this has not exactly been a normal week, slingshot or otherwise. I remembered at that is the important part.
But what to do?
This has been a big week already and frankly I am in the mood for quiet, or as close as I can get now that my daughter is back home and the busy level of my house has doubled. I do not know how that child does it but she is a one woman force of nature. She has been since she was very little.
But, I am sitting here with a puzzled, perplexed look on my face as to how to use the last three days of the week to celebrate.
Perhaps if I could identify the what to celebrate I could find the how to celebrate it.
This has been a super flat month as far as weight and inch loss goes. I have made progress but it’s not really celebration-worthy.
I did not give up but I am naturally tenacious so that does not feel like a party either.
I have taken on several new experiences but that is just my nature so it does not bring out the confetti and balloons in my mind.
I am just sorta stuck.
I did tell myself I would go try on clothes each slingshot week so there’s that but honestly it feels a bit lame considering I bought new clothes last slingshot week. My daughter and I are going thrift store shopping for wedding dresses for a photo shoot so I will try some things on but it is just not “clicking” with me.

Progress….I have to see it AND be okay if it is slow AND still make myself celebrate it anyway.
How do I cultivate the spirit of celebration?
I guess I am looking for that “great idea” feeling. It’s me so I’ll be obsessed until I find it…I hope it strikes before Sunday 🙂
