Oi. I am not sure if today was good or not. A friend and fellow designer left today for California and the opportunity to do package designs for a wine company, which has me feeling sad. She was a real sweetheart and great to work with. We had a food day in her honor, but being a gluten-free vegan, I was able to mostly avoid that trap.
We have a program going at work where you sign up and are given a pretty neat pedometer with the daily goal of getting 10,000 steps per day. Every week you get to enter your name in for a drawing if you met your weekly goal. I have been doing great getting my 10,000+ steps on top of my workouts and even has some friends to speed walk with on our breaks for a total of 2 or more miles on our breaks. That's actually been a lot more motivating than I expected.
Unfortunately, I ate too much for dinner and I feel too full. I had to work almost an extra 2 hours today, so I did not get to go for my Wednesday group jog. It is at this point where a binge and purge would start, but I am on here talking about it because for some reason, that really helps. I have been doing just fine for almost 2 weeks, and I am determined to be strong for the rest of time, though I will always be taking it one day at a time. I also have 2 doctor appointments tomorrow as a followup to last week's doctor visit. The stress of figuring out what is going on with me is kind of weighing me down. Thankfully, I have God to lend me strength and an awesome sister and friend who give me great support. Whatever happens, I will face it.
Looking forward to tomorrow's weight training... sort of. My booty shall be kicked! In good way, that is. =)
