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.
Yesterday was a long day! But it was fine, I made it without a nap! Yay! I'm so glad I made the short trip to enjoy Noah's T-Ball scrimmage. T-Ball is the cutest sport in the world, by the way. It was a beautiful thing witnessing his enthusiasm. Talk about doing things good for the heart and soul!
Noah hit the ball, ran the bases, scored a run, and threw the ball! His best friend from school is on the team, too! It was a great evening.
I came home and prepared a good on-plan dinner, too.

It's actually an 8oz pork loin grilled kabob topped with the sauce made from tomato sauce, refined sugar-free peach all-fruit spread, and cinnamon. #foodplan #dailypractice #whatilike #simplecooking
A colleague of mine sent me a photograph that someone took of me on this day five years ago. It was April 3rd, 2014, right before the turnaround from relapse/regain. I was at the top of that regain. I didn't take a lot of pictures back then, on purpose...but this one was taken without my knowledge. Oh my--I look at it and remember how lost I felt. But those memories quickly turn positive when I realize the dawn was coming for this guy in the picture, calling bingo numbers for an elementary school fundraiser.

I guess the message is, no matter where you are, don't give up. It's always darkest before the dawn, right?
