When you challenge yourself to do better and then don’t

You decide to try harder the next time

You say, “this is the weekend I’ll get things done”

You say, “I’ll schedule my time”

You say, “I won’t sleep in”

“I’ll go to the gym”

“I’ll clean the bathtub”

Suddenly it’s Sunday and you’ve done none of it

And you ate badly

And you feel defeated knowing that it will happen the same way next weekend

      I scooped the cat litter today so I’m feeling pretty good about myself!
