I had a super rough day at work yesterday. It's been a rough week, but yesterday was pretty much that little straw, you know? The wall in the ladies room took a pounding yesterday -- I did 200 really good wall push-ups over the course of yesterday to stay away from that ever-beckoning chocolate-laden candy dish.
When I'm upset, I have a hard time shutting down, so I got about 3 hours of sleep last night. I'm so blessed that tomorrow is my day off. If I can just squeak by on caffeine today, I think I'll make it.
I learned a lesson in all this yesterday -- normally I would have turned to food for comfort. Instead, I did something good for my body. Then I came home & watched Amy Grant music videos & hula hooped for 1/2 an hour.
The Prednisone has me up 4 pounds today, but I've been good. I'm holding steady in the middle of my calorie range, so hopefully the weight from the steroid will melt off quickly once I stop taking it tomorrow.
I choose to continue to make progress & move forward, even though my heart is still stinging.
Blessings to you, my beloved SparkFriends! You are such a blessing & encouragement to me.
