Today has been a good day in most respects. I completed two miles on the elliptical machine before swimming over a mile in the pool, and I’m really proud of myself for swimming like such a champ. 😉 I thought it would take time to work up to a mile, but I surprised myself by swimming a mile a few days ago and a mile and a quarter yesterday. And after today’s workout I feel tired, but I also feel confident and strong.
I’ve been such a dark place lately, but today I’ve managed to stay (mostly) out of it. I ate lunch with my dad before going to the gym, and I did a lot of thinking. This has easily been one of the toughest periods in my adult life, but today I believe I’ll get through it. And while it’s still not quite easy to see a silver lining, I do know that when this period is over I’ll be a better person than I was going in. It’s just time to start moving on…
Speaking of moving on, I’m leaving Oklahoma Saturday. After a short visit with my sister and her family in Colorado, it will be time to get back to the place that I love and start again. Though things will be different when I go back, I am utterly grateful to be going back.
A few things will be the same, and I’m thankful for that too. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at my Weight Watchers meeting on Thursday nights, and I can’t wait to see The Amish Outlaws again. 🙂 I’m also ready to enjoy good sushi and Thai food (though not on the same day, of course.)
Adjusting to my new life may not be simple, but I do think it will be awesome. And I feel so lucky to have supportive friends and family who want the best for me. I know that with the support system I have in place I can do this. I can move forward and rebuild what has been broken.
