Uphill Battle

Some days it seems like an uphill battle.  Just when I think I am almost to the top, I stumble and fall back down the mountain.  Once again I started off this month strong.  I hit my water goals every day for 2 weeks.  I started walking again.  I was eating well and following a plan.  Then, bam!  I took a wrong turn, stumbled and lost my way.  It is the same old story, told many times.  But I still have my eye on the prize.  I still have a goal and this time, I won’t let that stumble force me back down the mountain.  I will wrap my wounds and trudge on.  I will look to strangers for support and encouragement, but I will recover.
