Day 38

I feel a bunch better today. I was pretty down for a few days there. Retta was talking about you taking control of yourself and choosing to have a good day instead of a bad one. She is so right. I woke up today feeling like I didnt want to get out of bed. I felt overwhelmed, and I still felt exhausted. I made myself get up and go downstairs. I figured, even if I just curled up on the couch with the dogs I would at least get my day started. It started slow, but eventually I started feeling better. I'm not sure I will always be able to see through my bad days, but when I can I'm proud of getting through the funk.

I went back to the gym today and did 2 miles at 2.5 (cardio only day), and then I did 8 minutes at 2.7. I think on Saturday morning I might try to do some more at 2.7. Though, my goal is to up my time, not just my speed. I also want to give the bikes a try again, to change up some of the monotony!

My anniversary is on Saturday! I'm nervous because we are planning several dates over the week coming up (he took the week off), including dinners, a couple of Halloween activities and a murder mystery cruise on the harbor. :) I'm excited, but I'm worried about staying on plan. I'm not worried about over eating, because I can pretty much handle that aspect, but I'm worried about knowing that points of everything. I'm over worrying again!

Anyway, it has been a good day and so far this week I have followed every rule I have given myself I believe including the no eating after 2am rule. That was a hard one to follow.

1/2 cup skim milk: 1pts

Glad you're feeling better! Hope all your events you have planned go really well and you have a great time! It's far better to have some idea in advance of what you're going to be eating/drinking - even if it's more than you'd normally allow - just so you feel 'in control' and able to get straight back into your usual routine once you've finished enjoying them!

Thanks for the tip about the noodles! I had a look online and we can get something similar, but it's without the tofu, so they're apparently very slimy... I'm planning a visit to friends in America next year, so I'll grab a load while I'm over if I can't get any in the meantime. :o)
