Today is a shining example...

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

Of what NOT to do. I felt sick last night and couldn't fall asleep, and therefore overslept this morning, and therefore got the day going entirely wrong. I started off with a good breakfast at home... but that's where the good decisions ended for the day.

Although, allow me to take this opportunity to say, IT WAS A GOOD DAY! My eyes are fine, no diabetic damage, and no worsening of my vision in the last 2 years. That was the important part. Everything else about today I have the chance to do over again, and the good news from the opthalmologist is that only part that really matters.

Honestly, though, all I have done since then is eat and sleep. I don't know what my deal is and I'm not going to try to make excuses. It was just a lousy day. I didn't eat right, I didn't exercise, and I slept more than I was awake. All I can say at this point is... I'm glad it's almost bedtime, and tomorrow will be better. I refuse to let one lousy day like today drag me back into a bad place and undo so much of the hard work I've done.

I hope everyone has had a great Tuesday!

    I had the opposite day - crazy a lot of doing, but not much progress. C'est la vie.

    Hang in there and don't give up! Bad days will happen but don't let it define you. What defines you is how you learn and recover from it!

    Good job not beating yourself up over a negative day. By looking forward to the next step, the next day you can move in a more positive direction. Congratulationd about the good news concerning your eyesight. Maybe worry about the exam caused you to not get to sleep when you wanted to.

    Way to go!!! Keep that attitude!

    Bad days come to us all, but if you can fight it, and make the most of your chance to change your tomorrow, you win!!!
    Maybe you really needed a sleep day. I know that there have been times when my body overrules everything I attempt and I just pass the heck out. I look at that as I've been pushing to hard, and I needed to recoup.

    Tomorrow will be excellent. You'll get up, get breakfast, and get the day started!!!!

    Lousy days are part of living. I like your attitude. You know what went wrong and you will strive to make tomorrow and AMAZING day. Way to go! We all have these days. Today is not my best day. I don't have the strength or will to exercise but tomorrow I will make up for my lack of will. You'll be okay and tomorrow will be a bright day emoticon .
