Evening Out

on November 14, 2013

First of all, thanks again to everyone for your comments and support on yesterday’s post.

After posting, I did just what I said I would. I soaked in the bath and went to bed. This led to me waking up early. It’s been blowing high winds the last few days. I honestly would not enjoy biking in 30 mph winds with higher gusts, can you blame me? So I turned on my in-home walking program and did the two mile program. I then took the dogs out for another three quarters of a mile. All this before 7 a.m. I had another busy day today, but one that had me outside and walking around a lot. I also walked the dogs again when I got home. It’s no surprise that I topped 11,000 steps today. Booyah!

Emotionally, I evened out for the most part today. Every once in awhile, upset bubbled up. I didn’t stuff it back down, but I kept it in balance and didn’t let it swamp me either. Even emotions help me keep my eating on track.

I’m not surprised that my shoulder and arm don’t hurt as much as they did. That said, I’m planning to call the massage therapist tomorrow and see if she has any openings on Saturday afternoon. Being good to myself is important, and that includes being good to my body. I can do a lot of that by feeding myself healthy food on my plan and exercising. Getting a massage is therapeutic. I need some of that care and it’s important that I arrange to receive it.

Good self-care — mentally, physically and emotionally. Practicing that will keep me in recovery. I have a goal and refuse to postpone achieving it.

    Good self-care seems to be essential to all things having to do with our health: physical, mental, emotional, etc. I’m slowly returning to taking better care of myself and it is, equally slowly but in parallel, leading me back to better habits.

    I’m so glad that you are doing better, that the emotions aren’t leading to overeating. I love how committed you are and how you keep leading yourself back into line. You are doing so well, I hope you are pleased and proud of yourself.
