Yesterday was a 6-star day: I maintained the integrity of my calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, I enjoyed a good elliptical workout, and I stayed well connected with exceptional support.
Yesterday was a good day in a few different ways. I felt like I was catching my breath and calm. It's been an interesting week with different stressors, so to find that was a good thing.
I had a short visit with mom before my workout last night--then made the decision to enjoy a meal out. I've cut way down on the number of meals out in the last month or so thanks to the star system I started using to "grade" my daily practice. Fajita chicken tacos made sense last night--right before my Thursday night support group conference call.
I worked on assembling my standup set after the call last night. My friend Wade Tower and I will perform a stand-up show tonight at a local restaurant. It's a fun way for me to exercise that part of me. It's just for the joy of doing it. The last time I did one of these there, it was a packed room--so we're hoping for the same tonight. Tomorrow night, I'll be speaking in front of an audience too--except it'll be at a special banquet for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Oklahoma. They've asked me to share my story and experience with their incredible program. I'm honored!
