Well today didn't get to involve ducks because my friends toddler was really sleepy (she missed her nap because of the dentist appointment), but I did make it to the gym.
I feel a little stuck at the gym because I am doing an average of 20 minutes on the Arc Trainer before I do my strength training. I try really hard to remind myself that I weigh 450 pounds and that I'm literally working my ass off. I sweat so hard that its running down my face and my neck. My hair gets wet. I was sweating so much after the Arc Trainer that when I was moving from machine to machine for strength training I was dripping on the floor of the gym. That actually made me smile a little. Sweat is fat crying!
My food was better today, but I have another long busy day and then a long busy weekend ahead of that. Some of this weekend is going to involve some emotional stress which is driving my anxiety up. I'm going to a birthday party for the child of a friend who was very close to me in the past who is now a little distant. The birthday cake is the least of my worries.
On Saturday I have an 8 hour long meeting for a nonprofit I work for throughout the year. We are putting on our big annual event in a month so its crunch time. I'm trying to put myself in the right mindset because during these meetings people are eating constantly. I need to have a plan and stick to it and be prepared for the unpredictable.
Wish me luck!
