Day 13

I am updating early tonight!

I got Florence + The Machine tickets this morning! The show is 2 days after my birthday so Chad bought me a ticket as an early gift.

Other than that it has been a really low key day. I did some much needed relaxing, and I think my ankle feels pretty okay. It hurts a little but not like it did. The gym closes and isn't open tonight so I didn't go, but it's okay. My efforts so far have rocked.

What has also been on point today has been my food. I plotted every bite and I preplanned my dinner so that I knew what I could have. I want to succeed and the food part is feeling really hard for me right now. I just need to make one good choice at a time right?

I don't know if you can tell but I am feeling very off today. I'm feeling used up.

I think I let people have whatever they want from me on a rather consistent basis. I have a really hard time saying no, particularly to my friends and family. I feel like I am being spread in a thin layer over my life. I'm working on that. It didn't effect how I ate or moved today but I feel like not recognizing how I feel could be a detriment.

I have a potluck birthday party filled with cake and yummy things to get through tomorrow, and I have to get up a few hours early to go to a friends house to help with flood clean up. I'm going to be tired, stressed and hungry, but I am going to get through it. Maybe the longer I go, the stronger I will get?

I think I am going to use the word "tenacious" to get me through this week.

Good night guys.

TENACIOUS... wow, what a great word. And it fits you, too.

I like words, so looked up tenacious. Here's some of what it said:

firm, strong, forceful, powerful, unshakable, immovable, iron, persevering, persistent, determined, dogged, strong-willed, tireless, indefatigable, resolute, patient, unflagging,staunch, steadfast, untiring, unwavering, unswerving, unshakable...

Holy cannoli, girl. That's a powerful way to describe yourself. By choosing that mindset, you just set yourself up for success.

I agree with you that we need to get in touch with our true feelings, acknowledge them, understand what message their presence is communicating, address anything needed... and then like YOU did, not allow them to rule the roost!

I know you will tenaciously learn when it's a good time to say No, and put your healthy goals as a #1 Priority. Those that really count will understand. Those that object... well, we all know the rest of that saying, don't we?!
