Day 877... Possibilities

Monday, February 17, 2014

After yesterday's malaise I was hoping for a better day today. When I woke up this morning I told myself "anything is possible." Today was similar to yesterday as far as activity goes, but my perspective was restored to positive after a good night's sleep. So, those three walks with Cooper were more fun and less anxious. I also decided to go for a long walk on my own. At the end I was feeling so good I stopped and bought a lottery ticket. I never buy lottery tickets, but hey why not? I also did a little ST, after starting my day with 20 minutes of yoga.

There was nothing appreciably different between yesterday and today, but today I would consider a good day. Attitude is such an important aspect of this journey!

Tomorrow I have to get blood work done. It is fasting bloodwork this time, but I can't get there until after 11am, so I guess I am not eating breakfast tomorrow. Oh well... it will still be a good day!

    The last time I went in for fasting blood work, a series of problems in the lab meant that I waited until after noon just sitting there being HUNGRY.

    Putting the GRRRR in low blood sugrrrr!

    It made a big difference for me mentally to have my breakfast oatmeal prepared and waiting for me in an insulated carrier in the car, along with a big thermos of hot coffee. Just knowing it was there really helped, and wow, it REALLY tasted good after that blood draw.

    I drank oodles of water while I waited, and tried meditating on gratitude that fasting hunger is really unusual in my life because I am blessed with access to healthy food.

    Wishing you VERY boring and healthy blood work results!

    Attitude is everything..I have serious injuries but I still think every day is an adventure and I find the more you look at it that way the better things happen!

    Fasting blood work is a good excuse to sleep a little later!

    Glad your are feeling less anxious. FWIW, I'm fighting a round of situational anxiety. I am working hard at not catastrophizing the situation or negative self-talk. I'm definitely doing better now than I would have 2 years ago!

    I would like to have a millionaire emoticon . Good luck. Here in Las Vegas we don't have lottery. If we want a lottery ticket, we have to go to the nearest city in California or Arizona.
