August 1st, 2016 Worth It

August 1st, 2016 Worth It

I couldn't turn my brain off last night. I had too much on my mind. The car issue was just one of a few. I made the decision to take a sick day today. I just wasn't feeling well. It wasn't an illness--but it was needed. You know? Some days--sometimes, we just need a day we can simply rest--get recentered and adjust our perspective. I needed it and I took it. And it was worth it. I'm worth it.

We had a special event guest speaker tonight on the support group conference line. Dr. Marty Lerner was incredible in every single way. Dr. Lerner's free e-book available at Milestonesprogram.org is titled "A Guide To Eating Disorder Recovery." I highly recommend!

I had the pleasure of being introduced via phone to Dr. Lerner years ago by Life Coach Gerri. He actually wrote the expert review of my book. If you have a copy of Transformation Road--his review is on the very first page. What's interesting to me, is, in that review, he alluded to possible trouble ahead, without saying it--and he was right. His expert review was glowing and wonderful for me, but also foreshadowing of events to come.

Without saying it directly--it was as if he knew what was likely coming. And boy did it ever come. But as I've said before--that 164-pound relapse/regain was exactly what I needed in order to reach where I needed to reach, to see what I needed to see--accept what I needed to accept and once and for all, give it a tight embrace.

I wish I could write more tonight. There's so much I have to write about! But it's too late. I tilted my schedule and day when I slept in so incredibly well.

I will not end this post without confirming...

I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained abstinent from refined sugar, I stayed connected with solid support, I exceeded my water goal and I enjoyed a wonderful workout at the gym.

  1. One thing I have learned is to eliminate/reduce the chronic stressors where I can. Your car seems like it might be a chronic stressor that needs resolved, like a major change. Dependable car makes a huge difference in our day to day lives.
