Bettter Than Yesterday

Our CrossFit box has a motto of "Better Than Yesterday".  That is my motto today!  Yesterday....well, it wasn't the best day.

I went in for my fill and the new PA was there to do it.  She started by putting in 2 cc's and I asked her to back off that a little because I have a tendency to be on the tighter side.  She offered to just do 1 cc at a time, but since I pay for each visit, we agreed to split the difference at 1.5 cc's.

Y'all, I knew before I walked out of that office that I was too tight.  I just kept telling myself that I didn't remember what it was like to be tight and that I was just being a baby.  Ha!  Obviously I continued not to feel well.  I went to lunch with my friends and ordered hot & sour soup.  I ate about 5 or 6 spoonfuls of broth and I could do no more.  In addition, I hurt.  That was the kicker.  You should never hurt.

So, I ended up wasting most of my day as I headed back to Ft. Worth for the second time that day.  She ended up taking out .3 cc's.  I think I'm at the correct level now, but we will have to see.  I was able to drink water just fine.  Last night I was able to eat a portion of a smoothie and some creamy soup.

Today, I have had my coffee and protein drink.  I'm planning on more cream soup for lunch.  I will add mushies tomorrow.  The kicker will be when it is time to eat "real" food.  Fingers crossed!

After all of that, we went to the Rangers game last night.  It was super fun and I was with several of my friends in a suite.  I was preoccupied though with all the things I had to do over the next few days.  We left before the game was over (around 9pm) and headed home.  On my way out of the parking lot, I had an accident.  BFF & I (as well as the passengers in the other car) are totally fine, but the Skittle has sustained quite a bit of damage.

The accident was my fault.  I pulled out into the lane in front of someone who then hit me.  I will say that I didn't see the person AT ALL and I believe that he was not looking up when he hit me.  But it is still my fault and I accept that.  Thank goodness for insurance! 

THAT did not help my day.  However, I got everything squared away with the insurance company and I have to take my car in to be fixed tomorrow.  The bad news is that I have to pay the $500 deductible.  But the good news is that it could be much higher and my insurance even covers a rental car.  So, at this point, it is mostly just a nuisance.

I will say that even all this drama is not keeping me from making good food choices.  Although, when you are on liquids, you only have so many options.  But I could have eaten a gallon of Blue Bell last night and I didn't.  :)  That's a good choice, right?

I'm feel a little more determined this time than I have in a while.  I'm trying very hard not to focus on numbers...just on good behaviors.

I love how you can turn not so great things and see the bright side (everyone's ok, the deductible could be higher, etc.). :)
