Yesterday was a long, long, bad, bad day!! It was my last day in the office until Monday, so I was buried under work & more or less chained to my desk. It was a stressful day. There's a whole lot of other stuff that went on as well that I won't go into. It'll just make me angry all over again.
But . . . I am so proud of myself!! There were TWO birthday celebrations in my office yesterday. I will usually have a 2-bite piece of cake & skip my snack, but I abstained yesterday from both parties. I was soooo close to losing another pound & I didn't want to mess that up.
After having a super-duper stressful day, I had one of the best workouts at the gym last night. That's the hardest I've worked out in a long, long time & anger fueled it. My shoulders are so sore this morning.
Sooooo . . . when I got up this morning, I had lost that pound. One more to go & I'll hit the "25 pounds lost" mark.
So are you having a good day? Maybe you're having a bad day. How about a so-so day? Has someone made you so angry you want to spit? Maybe you're upset. No matter what is going on, every day is a good day to work out!!
Blessings to you!!

For what are you exchanging a day of your life? For me, it used to be sitting in my easy chair eating unhealthy/processed/fast foods.
These days, I exchange a day of my life for exercise, frequent movement & healthy foods. It's a much better deal. I feel so much better!! I can't even describe to you how much better my body "runs" when I give it the correct fuel. I feel stronger, have more energy, I'm happier & it's pretty rare these days that I get sick, thankfully.
So I have a question for you: "Why crawl when you can fly?"
Crawling to me is eating junk & then feeling like junk. Flying is eating great-for-you foods & getting your body moving. I didn't see that before, but after changing my habits, I can clearly see it now.
There are so much better things ahead for you & me if we take care of our bodies now.
Never lose hope! We CAN do this!!! Even when it gets hard . . . we can do this!!
So . . . who wants to go on a journey with me?
For those of you who accepted my challenge, WAY.TO.GO!!!
Blessings to you!!

Oh boy! I have had many, many mammograms over the last 2 years. Yesterday was the most uncomfortable I have ever been. I did all the things my doctor recommends: Schedule your mammogram within 5 days of finishing your cycle & take a some Iboprofen, Motrin, or Advil 1 hour before your scheduled appointment time -- generally, it works like a charm but I think I just had an overzealous mammo tech. Don't get me wrong, she was so very sweet & kind & I know she was just doing her job, but man oh man!!
Most of the techs will let you tell them when the machine is tight enough to be uncomfortable & she did this, but just as she would run to hit the "go" button, she'd crank the machine just a little tighter. Yowza!!! She kept saying "don't breathe!!" No worries honey, I wasn't breathing anyway because I think my lung was up in there, too.
This is the most sore I've been even after all the mammograms I've had. But, in the scheme of things, it was all worth it when the radiologist came to tell me I have the "ALL CLEAR!!" I wasn't really expecting any surprises because my blood work came back clear 2 months ago, but it's nice to to hear that you're good to go for another 6 months. I am fortunate that as a survivor, I get the results right away. Yay!!
So, I'm gonna strap "the girls" in tight this morning & go to the gym. Might not do a lot of jumping today.
I'll diligently go back in December for my next mammogram. It's all about saving the Masterpieces, right?
Blessings to you!!
