Gindy is a Team 100 member (day 106) and I asked her to share a bit about what it was like to hit Day 100:
Gindy: Things have definitely changed for me in 100 days, but, more than that, most things have stayed the same. I still have the same job, same husband, same dogs, same car. The laundry still needs to be done, the house fixed, dinner prepared, overtime hours put in though on salary, and bills need to be paid.
My biggest accomplishment, so far, has been learning to balance all this in a healthy way. I still have meh days, difficult clients, and three places to be at once. At 5:00 I used to scream “pour yourself a glass of wine – you EARNED it today!” When in reality, once a glass was poured, nothing else was accomplished. The glass turned into a bottle, then often into another. With the next morning’s hangover, I ended up wasting the first half of the day unaccomplished and further set my agenda back.
I still have a long way to go, but I’m happy. I can’t control tomorrow, it’s coming regardless of anything I do. I’m living for today, and making a point to take time for me when I need to. My 100-day treat came in the mail today. I bought 20 sample-size perfumes – I may not have been able to decide on one, but at least I know better than to wear them all at once 😉
