What a day. I got a few things accomplished. I'm happy about my garden coming together. I was embarrassed every time I walked up to my house. I just wasn't in the right mindset to get things done. Ever since that phone call on Thursday it seems like an "S" has appeared on my chest. I feel like I want to do things again. I'm looking forward to my morning walks and my strength training. I'm smiling again. I just feel normal again. Don't get me wrong; I still have other stuff popping out at me, but I feel like I can handle it now.
Today is the start of a summer challenge that I joined. I am a part of the Determined Daisies. Determined Daisies we rock!! The challenge is to lose 5% of my body weight in 8 weeks. Today I feel I can do it. I feel like I can support my team in reaching our weekly goals. It's not that I didn't feel it before. It's just that I don't have that cloud hanging over me to get in the way. Problems can hold you back, and I just have one less (a major one at that) to get in the way. I've had a chance to exhale and rest. Now I'm ready to focus on a healthier me, so here's to losing that 5%.
