Storms, Unfills, and Being Committed
I am so happy to say that with all of the devastating mess from the storm, I (and all my loved ones) am safe and came through unscathed. I honestly can't believe that there was no loss of life. It truly seems like a miracle.
I saw a sign on the way to work that said that you must have credentials to go into the Arlington Disaster Area. Arlington is just south of where I live and is where my friend Lizard lives. We were worried for her house and doggies, but everything was fine there. The destruction is more south. I hate it that there will be so much clean up necessary and that so many people lost their things...but I'm so grateful that no one lost their lives.
Yesterday I just decided that enough was enough and I scheduled an unfill. Then I canceled it. Then I made another one. I finally went this morning and I'm glad I did. I do think that when the swelling from the current irritation goes away, I will be hungrier than I could be, but it is the right thing for me. It costs for me to have unfills and fills, so I don't plan to go back until I get my Olympic unfill. I will take no chances of complications while I'm overseas. I won't have them take all of it out, just a couple cc's to make sure there is no chance of stickage. :) Then I will come right back and put it in.
I have had a problem with my "diet" lately because there is so much I can't eat. So I would make a plan and then when I couldn't get something down, I would eat crap. I recognize that isn't good. I'm hoping by making this change today, I can eat all of the healthy things I need to eat to be successful.
I am committed to losing these 5.2 (maybe a little more once I'm rehydrated) pounds and I will do it. My parents are coming for the weekend and they are committed to eating healthy while they are here, so that will help things tremendously.
I will leave you with a picture of me hanging in a squat during my workout yesterday...
