Yesterday was a 4-star day: I maintained the integrity of my calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with exceptional support.
Mom and I enjoyed a really good visit Monday evening with three of my four grandkids. My goodness, they're growing! I'll say this, when things get challenging and I'm feeling down, spending more time with them helps reframe things.
Things have been challenging lately. Enough so, that I'm making an appointment with my doctor today and I'll be checking with my insurance to see what's available in the way of coverage for therapy sessions.
This isn't new, really. I've had occasional bouts with this type of thing over the years. It's important for me to write about it--in some way--to express how, this is part of it all. I mustn't sacrifice the daily practice helping keep me well. Instead, I must keep some structure to that area--and fortify other areas, hence the doctor visit and finding some therapy. If I don't fortify those other areas, keeping structure within my daily practice could become increasingly difficult.
This is an important time because it's life. What we do, if it's to be sustainable long-term, must be flexible enough to weather different storms along the way. It can bend but I pray it doesn't break.
My food plan has been enjoyable lately...
