Yesterday was a 4-star day: I maintained the integrity of my calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with exceptional support.
I’ve accomplished quite a lot today and that feels good. I haven’t hit everything on my list for this three-day staycation, but progress has been made while at the same time finding the spots to relax and rest. I’d say it’s been successful.
Yesterday was the first day in a long time where instead of exceeding my water goal, I just met my water goal for the day. It seems easier when my day is more structured if that makes sense. But no complaints!
I finally got to enjoy my oven-fried catfish meal last night. I prepared two filets and another is waiting to be used. I’ll probably make that one a lunch tomorrow.
The low-level anxiety thing that recently started continues to run just below the surface. I’ve had to pause several times to do some grounding techniques in order to manage. It’s strange really because I can’t identify the specific source. It may be tied to some fairly intensive therapy I’m doing regarding childhood trauma. It’s okay, though. Well worth a little anxiety! I’m a big proponent of therapy! If you can get it, get it! It’s fascinating to me when the dots start connecting and we see, sometimes for the first time, how certain events and happenings helped create a ripple effect, shaping the powerful patterns and behaviors of our life. I’m grateful!
