Today was a great day nutritionally, decent on exercise (in fact the best day in awhile). The impressive thing is September 11th is always an emotional dayfor me. While I knew no one personally in any of the attacks it still affected me greatly and prompted my decision to join the Army. Often September 11th is me sitting down at the computer watching all the old footage drinking some wine and crying my eyes out, why it ever affected me this way I don't know, possibly because I am a very visual learner and I can conjure up the images of that day easily, it drove my Army career and my current career choice. For the first time since that day September 11th was just another day for me, not that I have forgotten it was just finally okay to have a moment of silence and move on with my day. No emotional eating, not a drop of wine/beer, just woke up made a healthy meal for the day and then took the dogs out to enjoy the wonderful weather today, followed that with a strength training circuit and then off to work. It still seems like yesterday to me but I feel I am finally healing from it, I hope that those that lost loved ones are being able to heal as well, because I know if this day affected me this much I cannot imagine how they feel.
