Today started off as a good day. I am a walker, and do enjoy being able to walk outside. It has been such a cold and snowy winter here, (like so many places!) that I have not had a chance to walk outside since December! So I was very happy to take advantage of the warmer day and head out for a walk outside , as opposed to walking on the treadmill.
It felt so good to be outside again!! Granted, there were still several slippery spots, but I just took my time on those areas. I was able to walk for about 40 minutes and then came home and walked on the treadmill for another 25. Yes, that felt good!
Then my SIL called and reported my brother had been admitted to the hospital. Hopefully he can get the help he needs there to get better. Then my SIL called again a bit later in the day and shared some stuff with me that just tore me apart. I won't go into details, but it really upset me. So what did I do? Eat. Nope, it did not make the problems go away and nope, I did not feel better after I ate. What started off as a nice day went too quickly downhill.
I was able to shake off that feeling by dinner and enjoyed a healthy dinner of chicken (cooked on the grill outside!) and green beans. Then a graham cracker for dessert. It feels good to have gained some control back in this day.
