I stayed in tight support today. Every single thing I did today was done in an effort to take the best possible care of me. I've felt that incredibly unstable of late.
I accomplished good work at the studio. I took a normal lunch hour at home (I almost never do this). I was able to leave work on time. I headed directly for the gym instead of home and I had a great workout. I really needed that workout today. Was I tired? Yes. I was tired. I couldn't go to sleep last night for the tossing and turning. Have you been there? Where you can't turn it off?
I was able to get an hour nap this afternoon, plan a great dinner and was ready for tonight's exclusive support group conference call I co-facilitate with Life Coach Gerri Helms and Life Coach Kathleen.
I took exceptional care today. I don't want to relapse. I don't want to regain. I don't live in fear of it--but I live with the full knowledge that it's always possible--IF I don't take care of me.
I'm not some super-human weight losing and maintaining machine. I'm human. I'm fallible. I do what I do each day because I'm not super strong. And guess what??? We don't have to be super strong. The fundamental elements I make important each day are the rails I hold with a firm grip.
And when I start letting things slip and I start living in any way outside my authentic self, that's when I'm not taking exceptional care. As I wrote last night--it hasn't affected my food...yet, but it would--eventually, if I don't get straight. I'm taking care of me. I'm getting straight.

Today, I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget. I remained abstinent from refined sugar. I stayed connected in much needed support. I exceeded my daily water goal. And I had an amazing workout this afternoon.
