The Bad Day

Yesterday I had my first bad day. 

I was sore from probably overdoing it physically the day prior, my head was telling me I needed food, and I felt like a wuss for needing the pain medication.  It was not a pleasant day.

All day long I wanted real food.  Not my protein shakes or watered down yogurt.  I wanted fries, burgers, chocolate.... all the crappy comfort foods.  It didn't help that every single commercial on tv was telling me about all of the food I could not have.  My stomach wasn't hungry, just my head.

I had a lot of pain in my sternum and I could not get comfortable in any position.  I could not walk very far without feeling tired.  It was just a crappy day overall.

But I made it through.  I distracted myself by reading, surfing the net, humour, and movies.  I turned to friends for support online.  And I rested.

Today I am not feeling much better physically, but I am mentally.  I know I am going to have many more days like this and it is just going to get harder.  But I made it through the first hard day so I am off to a good start.

I'm sorry it was a rough day, but I'm glad you made it through. *hugs*

Great attitude, Kara! All we can do is get through those bad days, one at a time. I am so happy that you made it through and recognized it for what it was... just a bad day, and not a reflection on you.

Sorry you had a bad day there, Kara. We went through a few here with our experience. Just keep your end goal in mind. Lisa had the same struggles. It was tough going for both us in the beginning but I know she fits a size 2 in jeans. I don't recall what size she started in but I'm sure she would um, "demasculinate" me if I told. Hang in there girl!
