It’s one of those days. A day where by 10 o’clock in the morning I’ve had to repeat “stay strong girl, stay strong” to myself about 5,550 times. Really, that much…
Mood wise I’m doing great but I have this uncontrollable urge to go to the vending machine and eat every hostess cake there is, but I won’t. I’ll stay strong, but it’s not always easy to follow my own advice.
This may sound a little corny but I literally wanted to remind myself to “stay strong” so I did a few exercises while at work. Yup. I felt that I needed to focus on something else rather than caving into my empty calorie cravings. I figure I have done this good in one week, I want to keep it up!
In Between patients I have done the following:
* calf raises( I actually do this all the time at work when I’m just standing around, you’d think I would have better calves!)
You know what? It worked! I pepped myself up and it got me past my craving while I managed to get a few minutes of extra strength building in. Not only did I gain physical strength, but emotional strength as well.
