Especially the Self-Imposed Ones

I have to be honest, yesterday (day 8), I began to dread the non-fiction deadline I had given myself.

This is seeming awfully familiar.
If you have ever done the Whole30 diet or something similar, then you know about the honeymoon phase. You know- that first week where you feel so accomplished for having made the commitment in the first place. You went shopping with an awesome list. You prepped all your meals for the week. You are eating so well, you have become the biggest cheerleader in your Facebook group.

I want to keep my promises to myself.

It is almost December 10. I will try not to procrastinate tomorrow.
