10 reasons I was proud of myself today

November 18, 2015

I woke up early to drive Jeremy to work, even though I had the day off and could have slept in.

I only spent money on things I was planning to buy, and didn’t impulse buy anything.

I had a Subway salad for lunch even though I felt like eating something much more unhealthy.

I went to the gym, even though I had the day off. It took a bit of convincing myself, but I made it there.

I made another salad for dinner rather than asking Jeremy to cook or getting take-out from somewhere.

I was feeling positive all day long and didn’t let anything ruin my mood.

I did my own manicure at home instead of spending money on getting it done in town.

I did not have a snack after dinner, and instead went and brushed my teeth as soon as I had finished eating.

I bought a Secret Santa gift for someone and paid a bit more than the planned amount to get a better gift.

I wrote this blog post before bedtime! 🙂

Sometimes it’s good to sit down and think about things you’ve done well. That’s why I decided to write this post, and I would recommend others to do the same as we all do a lot of things we should be proud of every day that we may not realise – big things and small things.

Did you do something you’re proud of today?

    I think it’s so important to remind ourselves of the small achievements. Well done you 🙂

    Like this post, sometimes it is important to take things day by day and remember that even the smaller errands are still being productive. We don’t always think about the small things that we do everyday that could potentially add to a bigger outcome later on. #blogging101

      I totally agree. Focusing on the good stuff even though it may be small stuff, definitely makes me feel better! 🙂

    I think this is such a great post idea. I just read an eye opening book about over all health, eating, fitness, stress control and so on. One of the tips was to keep a diary about things that you’re grateful for in your life. I think that’s a good feeling to fall asleep with! I will definitely try to change my life around a bit and will probably share it on my blog to get some public pressure for my journey haha! Hope you’re having a wonderful day! 🙂

      Would love to know what the book you read was called! Sounds like a book I’d be interested in. I’ve been really focused on positivity lately. Hope you have a wonderful day too! 🙂

        The book is called “Hormonitasapaino – Opas energiseen elämään”, unfortunately I don’t think it has been translated into English or any other language, I will have to check on that! Translation for the name would be something like “Hormonal Balance – A Guide to life full of energy”. It has definitely been a really good and eye opening read! 🙂

          Right, don’t think I’ll understand much unless it’s translated! Haha!
