How things change

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

I was reading my old blogs last night, and my... it is amazing how things change. I feel it is necessary to go through those from time to time to relive my old frustrations and remind myself just how far I have come.

When I am having a bad day, and I feel down on myself for whatever reason, I revisit those blogs and photos to remind myself that I am NOT that person anymore.

Last night at work was tough. There was cake all around me. I have a weakness for cake. Most of the time, I can stop at a bite or two, or at most a small piece, but last night I didn't feel like that was going to be possible. I felt like if I had a bite, it was going to turn ugly. So, I abstained. It wasn't easy. In fact is was down right hard, but I managed to do it.

I don't really want to go to work today. It is Law and Order SVU Marathon day on USA Network, raining out side and the cat is cuddled at my feet. I seriously don't want to get off the couch.

I am sore from lifting yesterday -- it is awesome. I love it. The weather is supposed to be crappy the next few days - don't think i will be getting a good bike ride in... well, maybe I will. Maybe I will go riding in the rain. I guess it depends on how warm it is going to be.

Blah, time to get ready for work. I may blog later on tonight if I have time and something to say

    Oh wow, rain and SVU is hard to pass up on! It really is interesting to go back and read through our journeys. Good for you for passing on the cake too!

    Reward yourself for abstaining from the cake by watching Law & Order: SVU. The cat will think you're a genius.
