My Disappointment Lead Me Straight to the Halloween Candy Yesterday
Friday, October 19, 2018
My disappointment over the pool situation (last two blogs) palpable, I spent my day driven by the thought that I'd go to the class anyway and take my chances. Nah, I know better than to play Russian Roulette with my health.
Finally, I relented to emotional misery and found my "hidden" bag of treats I'd bought earlier this month for the trick or treaters. I was pondering which ones did I want - Crunch or Baby Ruth - oh, probably several of both.
Ready to tear open the bag in rebellion, I fast-forwarded to how a few would not be enough to satiate my disappointment, how I'd make myself sick, how I really have to stop "rewarding" myself on days when emotions tidal wave me, etc.
I put the bag away, unopened, and then went and put on my big girl pants. Geesh, I've been through wayyyyyyy bigger disappointments than this. I'll survive. (smiling)
Thank goodness my plantar healed just in time for me to walk on my regular routes again. Plus, I have exercise equipment here and can also go to other exercise classes.
This is far from a big deal, so I put it in perspective and am carrying on. Later in the day, I "rewarded" myself with a pomegranate which was delish. Wish the hot temps would go away now. Enough already!
Have a happy, healthy day, friends.
