Nothing to See Here

on August 1, 2013

It’s been such a busy couple of days, that I haven’t had a lot of time to notice what’s going on in my own recovery — other than that I haven’t had any issues.  I’m not eating compulsively.  I’m keeping up with my exercise.  I feel great.  I’m good.  That sounds kind of boring, but to be honest, it’s a really cool blessing.

White knuckling one’s way through recovery is exhausting.  There are times when you really feel like you’re holding onto abstinence with everything you have — but that amounts to trying to maintain a grip using only the tips of your fingers.  I’ve come to appreciate the many days when this whole eating right thing isn’t a struggle.  I experience this more days than not.  Again, it’s a blessing.

So, right now I’m going to simply enjoy it and the way that it feels.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to stack another day on top of it tomorrow.
