Dear Sticker Babies,
I’m having a moment. A lovely moment of gratitude.
I posted earlier about my 23 Point breakfast and my plan for how I would tackle this busy day and stay in my Points.
We are on our way now to the movies… with 6 kids. I pre-tracked my meal at Chipotle (easy! tons of LOW POINT options!) and I packed an orange and 2 bottles of water for the movies.
I decided to wear a Sticker Baby t-shirt tonight for EXTRA motivation and moral support. (these t-shirts feel like super hero costumes!) And I went all out getting ready. (Ya’ll know I DON’T fix my hair and makeup often and I actually watched a YouTube video to help me figure out how in the world to curl my hair like the girl at the salon does it!
But here’s why I’m writing… I realized as I was getting ready that I was not only wearing my REWARD shirt, but I was using my…
REWARD curling iron and
REWARD hair spray and
REWARD makeup and
REWARD coat and
REWARD purse and
REWARD quart jar and
REWARD lid and straw.
I could not have predicted this past December when I created this behavioral sticker system just how POSITIVE this would be. Or how much momentum it would build. Not just in my life, but in OUR lives.
I sincerely appreciate you all doing this with me. I brag on you all the time. What a supportive and encouraging group of people you are.
Grateful for the momentum. Grateful to be headed in the right direction. Grateful to be traveling alongside YOU.
I made a plan. Sticker.
I’m sticking to it. Sticker.
Pre-tracked Chipotle, brought an orange for the movie. Bought 6 kids 2 large popcorn with extra butter, 4 large ICEES, Junior Mints, Starburst, and Airheads… and I’m drinking water and eating an orange! Is there a charm for a moment like THIS??!!!
It’s 1:14am. Back home from our big night out. 2 kids asleep. 2 quiet. 2 slap happy. I am going to bed with a BLUE D🔵T after having eaten ALL of my 23 Points for breakfast. Today I got stronger. I grew self-control, discipline, and confidence muscles. I grew closer to ya’ll and closer to my goal today. And by “today” I mean YESTERDAY.
