Tell What Wasn’t Great In A New Way

I was doing my homework yesterday as well as today and in both days I answered the following:

1. What was great about yesterday?
I ate on protocol.
I allowed urges to overeat and processed them.
I donated a rug.

2. What wasn’t great about yesterday, and how can you change it in your mind to make it great? How can you tell the story so it truly was good?
I did not follow my plan to write.
I obeyed urges to procrastinate instead of working on my novel.

My question is, it seems like a lie to tell myself that the fact that I didn’t follow my plan yesterday (and the day before) is great!
How could it be great if the actions I took (not writing) have taken me further away from my goal, rather than closer to it?
How could it be truly good?
