Day 32 Check In..
Ok, so this is where it gets hard for me. This is the part where I want to just say I blew it today and just leave it at that. But that is the easy way out. I know that this is a safe place to be completely honest, and that is what I have committed to doing, even when it is hard. So, here goes...
- 193.5 - 1 pound up from yesterday
Exercise - This was supposed to be my C25K training, but I let other stuff get in the way. This is probably where I went wrong. After this, the food fell apart, too. I always tell my kids that one good decision leads to another, just like one bad decision leads to another.
Calories - 1755 - 255 calories over! Ugh! I had a ladies blanket making party at the church tonight that was pot luck. Nuff said!
Fiber - 42 grams
Freggies - 6 - Much better today.
Water - 7 today
I wanted to tell you about the blanket making party that we had tonight at the church. My neighbor who lives across the street lost her 20 something year old son in a car accident a few years ago and she did an amazing thing to deal with her grief. She said that she remembers when her son was in the hospital and they knew he wasn't going to make it. He was an organ donor, so they were waiting for that process to be started. They were in the waiting room all night. She remembers being so grief stricken and cold and wishing that she had a blanket, so she started an organization called "It's a Heck of a Blanket" that gives hand made blankets to people who are in the hospital waiting for their loved ones who are organ donors to pass away. (Her son's last name was Heck) In my opinion, it was an incredibly unselfish way to deal with her grief. She embroiders scriptures on the blankets and gives them a card with her website on it, so they can have contact with someone who has gone through what they are going through. On a side note, she met the man who received her son's heart and was able to listen to her son's heart with a stethoscope. It was an incredibly powerful moment! Here is the picture...
Thanks, as always, for reading what was on my heart tonight! Have a great weekend!!!
