The Best-Laid Plans

Since I last posted, I've had a few bumps along the way. My food choices have been mostly good ... mostly ... and exercise has been happening more frequently. But on Saturday night, I got really sick - inhaling all that smoke from the fireworks did a number on me, and walking back to the van from the fireworks display, my left hip went out and my leg stopped working. I sent my husband up ahead to get the car to come pick me up. Since then, I've been battling nausea, but the leg has repented.

But I'm not giving up. I've decided that while giving up is very, very tempting, it's not going to happen. How can I give up when I'm not happy? I don't think a person should ever be content to lay a project down until they're happy with how it turned out, or feel peace about walking away. There's no peace happening here. So, I'm not giving up.

I had a bit of nausea Saturday evening as well. Wonder if it was that apricot/tomato war?

And your bumps are ok. We have to have them to learn. And I think yours have been closer to mountains than bumps. And just one of them would derail anyone. What is important is that you get back on track whenever you can.

Babysteps. Don't beat yourself up. You are not behind, don't play catch up, just jump in and start wherever you are.

I hadn't thought about that, Sandra. I wonder if lunch did have anything to do with it. Are you feeling better now?

Thanks for the pep talk - I needed it!
