Today was good. It's been a long time since I felt this good. The thing that surprises me is that there were things today that normally would have ruined the day, but they didn't today. They happened, I got mad, and then I was over it. I am still in a good mood. I am tired and sore, but still happy. It's nice to feel this way. Lately I have been tired, grumpy, and unhappy more often than I'd like to admit. I don't know what changed or what caused this change, but I'll take it.
I ate good for breakfast and lunch. Dinner was a pizza buffet with my mother in law and the family. I didn't do perfect but considering how I used to do, I did awesome! I used to gorge myself as my husband says. Tonight I had a big salad (with too much dressing) and 3 slices of pizza and I left feeling satisfied but not stuffed. Three slices is a lot, but not compared to what I used to eat. Progress is progress but I realize that there is still room for improvement.
I got in a good jog this afternoon too. There is a road next to our school that runs back and then turns into a county road. It was a bit muddy (part of it is dirt) but other than that it wasn't too bad. No major hill like here at home. Oh, yeah, there were 3 dogs that tried to intimidate me, but I showed them! I'll admit they raised my heart rate more though! I am surprised at how sore I am tonight. I know it's been awhile, but I've had breaks before and haven't been this sore. I'll stretch good and then I'm planning on going for a walk tomorrow to work out any kinks. I hope to make jogging right after school a routine. I figure I can jog, then get the kids, then get home and make dinner. I hope these plans work out. My husband got the kids tonight so that helped.
Good day! I hope for more to come!
