In the scheme of things, I am blessed!


Wednesday, July 03, 2013



Yesterday was a long, long, bad, bad day!! It was my last day in the office until Monday, so I was buried under work & more or less chained to my desk. It was a stressful day. There's a whole lot of other stuff that went on as well that I won't go into. It'll just make me angry all over again.

But . . . I am so proud of myself!! There were TWO birthday celebrations in my office yesterday. I will usually have a 2-bite piece of cake & skip my snack, but I abstained yesterday from both parties. I was soooo close to losing another pound & I didn't want to mess that up.

After having a super-duper stressful day, I had one of the best workouts at the gym last night. That's the hardest I've worked out in a long, long time & anger fueled it. My shoulders are so sore this morning.

Sooooo . . . when I got up this morning, I had lost that pound. One more to go & I'll hit the "25 pounds lost" mark.

So are you having a good day? Maybe you're having a bad day. How about a so-so day? Has someone made you so angry you want to spit? Maybe you're upset. No matter what is going on, every day is a good day to work out!!





Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Glad you got some of that stress out of your system. Congrats on the 1 pound loss!!! Woohoo!

I too am blessed. We've had so many close calls recently while driving. I had to go to town yesterday, so I went early. Glad I did . . . otherwise I could have been the person who was airlifted to hospital after a head-on collision just a couple miles from my house. It was one of my FB friends. When her car was hit, it exploded in flames and she was trapped. Thank God for our firefighters and medics who got her out. So, the quote "I have seen better days . . ." is really appropriate for me today. Thanks for the reminder.

    emoticon on the lb lost! Hope your week is better next week! Great job on skipping the birthday treats. I always talk myself out of eating treats too since I think about how long I would need to work out if I eat it and it never looks THAT good!
Keep up the great work!

    I'm sorry you had such a stressful day yesterday but you were able to work it out AND lose that pound you were going for!! Yes, that makes for a good day. I think that if I wake in the morning, it is already a good day and won't let anything make it stressful!!

    Some of my best runs have been when I come home from a very stressful day at work! emoticon for sticking to your goal of losing that one pound and staying away from the b-day celebrations.
