Back on Track...Day 2
Monday, August 05, 2013
I am writing with a note of cautious optimism.. I DID go for a 30 minute walk yesterday, I DID record every bite that went into my mouth, and though every bit that went into my mouth was not the most nutritious of food, I am happy to report that I did the tracking. One thing I have to admit, as I walked I began thinking about my brother in law, and cried my way through some of my walk. But that is part of the healing process, I know, and it will not stop me from continuing my quest. I often walk with a friend, and when that happens of course we chat about lots of things, but I was not able to get in touch with her yesterday and desperately felt the need to go, so I went alone.
This morning was very busy, but I did find 15 minutes to ride my exercise bike and do some stretching. As soon as I got off the bike, I went over to my alarm clock and set it 15 minutes earlier, with the thought that I will be able to spend more time on the bike if I get up earlier. Ideally, my wake time will be even 15 minutes earlier than that, but I"m baby stepping my way towards that.
One thing I will report is the sense of accomplishment I felt from even this one little step forward this morning. Not that that is anything new, but it has been a long time since I have felt that, and I am tremendously grateful for it, as it is part of what I need to continue forward.
Thank you to all my wonderful spark friends for your support..I do not take any of you for granted, and it is oh so comforting to hear your "voices" when I reach out. It is truly like coming home. I am hoping that I am home for a while now, and that I continue to chronicle my program as I go, the good and the bad, should there be any bad.
