68 More Days and Feeling Pretty good!

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

To all who've asked about my daughter, I appreciate it! She is doing okay. Still sore and swollen but the doctor said the wound looks good. Tetanus booster yesterday (which she had to have before summer was over anyway!) and three days of antibiotics for good measure.
We got home from the doctor yesterday and I caught myself slipping into a habit of the "old me". I was tired. I was cranky. I had a headache. DD got on the couch and fell asleep and I went into the kitchen to see about getting dinner together and before I could say, "what the heck are you doing?" I had cake batter whipped up. I cooked the cake and after dinner, I got DD a small piece and cut one for myself. I stood there in the kitchen not being able to WAIT to eat cake. I wanted that cake. I took a bite of cake. I sat the cake on the counter and asked myself if that cake was getting me to my goal, or if that cake was my old answer for being stressed and tired. I tossed my cake in the garbage. No, I don't like to be wasteful, but I did not NEED that cake. I felt better and stronger once my piece was resting in the bottom of the garbage can.
This morning I got up and DD was especially cranky. Said her foot hurt more today than yesterday, and it probably does. She's been keeping it still and I know it has gotten stiff. Still swollen as well as her ankle and up her leg a little way, it's difficult to bend the foot. She got ready for school, grumbling all the way there and trying not to cry. I felt sorry for her, but showing much sympathy would have caused the tears to start, so I had to remain patient, but had to also seem like I didn't think it was a big deal. She slid out of the car at school giving me the evil eye. I suppose it was for not caring that she was in pain. (Little does she know!!) I'll allow her the use of the evil eye today, she isn't usually crabby at me.
I came home, fixed myself breakfast and then did my workout. I feel better for it. My mood and energy are definitely increasing as I've increased my exercise. So this is only the second week of consistent exercise, but I already feel so much better!!!
Now I'm ready to get ready for work and tackle the day!
Have a great one everyone!!

    I'm really proud you did not fish that cake outta the trash. Glad she's better. I worry about you both during tornado season.

    Ok, Kristi I have to wonder....what about the rest for the cake? I know if it was me I may win the battle today but tomorrow all bets are off. So give it to your sister's family next door. Her kids will love it and you did something nice for them and got rid of the cake. Now today is a fresh new day, I like you am taking this one day at a time. What is the rush anyways? lol.

    So awesome! It is hard - because yes, those habits do seem quite comfortable. For me, if I do have to "have" that cake - I try to make it myself homemade and ensure there are healthier ingredients. That way - I'm feeding the desire (which will allow it to quiet down again) but I am also not doing as much damage. It also helps that we are a big family - the cake is gone and then we move on.

You truly must be doing something right to actually weigh the pros and cons of eating that cake! Great job.

As for your little one - I hope she gets to feeling better soon - poor thing! Take care Mom - even this will pass - and someday (perhaps when she is a Mom herself - she will know how hard it was for you to do that!)

Keep up the great work!
