To Walk or Not to Walk...
Wednesday, June 12, 2013
Had a good day today. Ate in range. Actually had to add a snack this evening to get into range...that rarely happens...kinda nice.
I wasn't able to walk at lunchtime today...I had to take a short lunch so I could come home earlier than usual...DH and I had an appointment to get to.
Today, I only had a diet cola this evening. I went all day drinking just water...no headaches...no serious drop in energy. This afternoon, after lunch, I had a hard time quenching my thirst. I thought about having a diet cola, but I was giving plasma after work and I wanted to see if it went faster than usual...with drinking more water. So, I opted to bypass the diet cola and keep drinking the water and try to get over it with the water. My donation did not go better than usual like I had hoped.
They ended up having to do a second poke on my other arm and I came home with a sore right arm with an ice pack on it. Ugh. I was tempted to feel sorry for myself and not do my walking this evening...but no...I came home, got Mia, and headed to the park. We did our walk and DH fixed supper while we were out. Yay! I had a diet cola with my supper. Then I finished out my steps.
I'm hot now! It is WARM in the house. I turned the air on. We've been trying to manage with just the windows open and ceiling fans going...but it's not doing the trick tonight. Poor little Mia is still trying to cool down from our walk...and it's been a couple hours...so I decided it was air time.
It occurred to me tonight, when I was coming home and contemplating to walk or not to walk, that it was REALLY important to handle this situation the "right" way. If I do it "right" now, it is a chance for me to begin to forge the good habit of pushing through...being consistent...not getting derailed during tough times. And I did it! Yay!
Hope you all had a great day! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on!
