Small Steps

Sunday, May 19, 2013

I had to take two walks today. I got my first one in, and then the day started to unravel and I needed to get out of the house for a while, so I took walk number two. It was actually pretty cool because on my first walk I ended up getting uncomfortably close to a deer (I was being careful, trying to get past it), and then on my second walk there was a giant snake sitting on the sidewalk. I got video of it; it was pretty awesome.

Less awesome: I had two panic attacks an one emotional break down. I was actually doing pretty well on my calorie limits, but then I got some bad news regarding my financial situation and my mom was like 'why don't you get a drink' and once I could breathe again I was like 'great idea, I assume you meant something with alcohol'. Turns out, she didn't, but that's all right. I stopped at two beers and did not add a slice of cake to the mix like I usually would have, so overall I feel I did pretty well. I mean, 1600 calories is not the end of the world.

I also found out that sunblock does not help prevent a sun rash (or at least prevent one from getting worse), so I'm going to have to wear long sleeves for the next couple of days. That should be fun; it's only like eighty degrees out.

There is good news though. I can't actually think of any, but I know there must be some somewhere, and that's good enough I suppose.

    Good news is that you stopped at two beers, I would have had six, and you didn't have cake as well, another bad habit of mine. You survived the traumas of the day, and tomorrow will be better. Only 1600 calories? well that's all good too! Relax! Don't be so hard on yourself. Life is for living too.
