Day One - Failure but tomorrow is a New Day

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

My Mom had issues with low blood sugar early this morning and soon after she needed to do some running around town, obviously couldn't drive so I drove. I ended up staying up for quite a few more hours and didn't get to stick to my diet plan or even get any fitness into my day. I went to bed later in the morning/day and woke up in the middle to late afternoon then went running around right after waking up with my Mom again. I didn't eat prior to leaving the house, so fast food was my only option before my low blood sugar made me sick. THEN we went grocery shopping for a few small items and I saw the donuts, well lets just say I couldn't resist...I got a 6-pack of fresh donuts and shared them with my boyfriend and my Mom.

I feel so silly because I can't resist most temptations yet but I know it takes time and I am working on it. I can't expect a miracle on day one. So now hopefully day two will be a better start on my journey down the path.

I go to see my ARNP today (12:50 AM right now) and before that my dog has a vet appointment to check on her stitches. I am going to pack a lunch and bring water...So hopefully I will not be tempted by fast food or other foods that are easy to access, although I am totally broke again and had gotten the money from earlier by bringing back items to some stores that did not work out. So it would not be "that" easy to go off the path but I don't want to risk it anyways.

I am going to try to get some walking in today as well. Even if it is only for 5 minutes. Because I am having a harder time getting around the house, my knee's keep popping in and out of place, as well as my ankles. Both of my legs are causing issues but especially my bad leg. So I need to just get up on my feet and start walking. I still have to use my wheelchair in stores, especially when I am doing any major shopping or grocery shopping. It may take a year or so before that changes but I am not going to give up.

I may be stuck in my wheelchair half the time but it does not own me. :)

    Thank you MISSCINAZ that is very true :) I know I need to remember that every step of the way instead of this stinkin thinkin.

    Also thank you LISA_SUMNER08!

    All the support I have been getting from SP has really been helping me realize that this is not a race it is a marathon.

    I'm not very eloquent with words, but I always say that if you think something is a failure, then it really isn't because you recognize that you want to do better. I think "failures" are just life lessons. I thought yesterday was kind of a failure too in that I didn't do nearly as much at the gym as I would have liked, proving that I'm way out of shape. But the fact that I went at all is an accomplishment in itself.

    We live and learn.
