Today was a really tough day. No that isn't right, this month has been extremely tough. Delays in the adoption process of our daughter, trying to gather unobtainable, required documents resulting in sleepless nights wracked with panic attacks and realizing that we are once again going to be separated as a family for the holidays has brought such sadness, frustration and feelings of hopelessness. Today, really?
Today, I really didn't want to get out of bed, but I did. I found great joy in the laughter of my daughters as they told me their dreams of the night at the breakfast table.
Today, I really did not want to track my food, but I did, every single bite! I ended the day at the low end of my range.
Today, I really did not want to exercise, but I did. I actually rode the bike for 50 minutes, walked/ran my fastest pace yet for 60 minutes, and strength trained for another 60 minutes. My Fitbit even said I burned 3,018 calories.
Today, I really did not want to think about next week, but I did. I shopped for all meals for next week and even managed to find my favorite Greek yogurt for a special treat!
Today, I really wanted to give in and eat that container of rocky road ice cream that I knew was hidden deep in my freezer, but I didn't. I ended the evening with a cup of hot tea and a conversation with God. He gave me strength, hope and courage for tomorrow.
Today, I wanted to quit...but I didn't!
