Today - Plus

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Today I had two dr appointments. One was in the city - so I took mom to meet her Aunt for brunch.. (they are the same age, my grandma had a brother born the same time she gave birth to my mom...) At any rate - with mom living in my small little town now - I take her to the city with me so she can visit my aunt

Can I just say I am DONE with interns? I know they have to learn - I know making mistakes is how most of us learn - but I was hurt today during my exam - I have been crying on and off all day. I just need a day or two...

My second dr appointment was for my flu shot.

Ever since I got healthy enough to have the shot - I have the shot. Before Spark - I was always too sick to get the shot. Since changing my lifestyle - like my eating habits and exercise - I have gotten healthy enough to get the shot.

I am starting school the week of Oct 15th to finish my degree - my major in my associates degree is Sociology - but I am going on to complete my degree in Psychology.

A lot going on in my life still - but I am NOT stress eating or emotional eating - I am sticking to my healthy lifestyle. Reading some else's blog opened my eyes to this change - I have not turned to food in a long time for comfort. It shows in my weight loss and my clothes, my body too.

While I take it as :This is progress! The truth is it has been a few years since I picked up food for emotional reasons.

I will never leave this journey - I want to be healthy - I want to LIVE.

Jean

    sorry about the intern, I hope you are okay now? I know they have to learn but they still should know better. I also have the flu shot every year. I think it is better safe than sorry. Well done on finishing your degree. emoticon

    emoticon Jean, you are a great inspiration, guiding by your actions. And not eating when feeling emotional.
    I know your Mom and Dad are enjoying being closer to you.
    I get the Flu shot every year. Some people dont believe in getting them, but they have always been ok for me, and no reactions as of yet.

    That's amazing! Way to go on ditching the emotional eating! I don't do it often, but every once it awhile it will creep up on me still!
