Day 10: The breaking point

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

I think I hit the breaking point yesterday . . . and decided I'm not going to break it! I'm gonna make it!

But it snuck up on me. . . . I wasn't having a particularly good day. Have not been feeling the best for a while. I'm tired of constant pain. I can't do the things I want to do . . . including my workout. And constant pain beats ya down after a while. blah.

I had to go into town to do some errands and shopping. My shoulder is hurting so bad I can't ride my motorcycle..... so I had to take my car. blah.

First stop, road construction. . . . repaving the road. Had to wait for them to finish so I could follow the pilot car. blah

Next, stop at the pharmacy. I had to wait 30 minutes for something that was supposed to be done before I got there. blah.

And then, I went to the grocery store to pick up some produce. It was all yucky and overpriced. blah.

The final straw . . . on my way to the check out, I see a huge display of Russell Stover chocolates.

ON SALE!!!! This is a sign!!! emoticon

I DESERVE THIS!!! emoticon

Then, my little SparkAngel was screaming in my ear . . .

emoticon AM I NUTS????

Ya wanna feel even worse????

So, I did just that . . . . I walked past them . . .

When I got home, I had a handful of yummy fresh strawberries.

I still felt blah . . . but I feel better today.

I know that if I'd bought/eaten the chocolate, I would have been SO disappointed in myself. I would NOT have felt better. It would have made matters even worse.

But today I feel even more determined, empowered to succeed. I feel like that one decision was a huge hurdle. And I did it. I made the right decision.

If it is to be, it IS up to me.
