Bad days

I apologize for not posting, I was out of town. I wanted to share with you my past Sat. An acquaintance whom asked me for help completely screwed me over. When I say screwed me over, I mean big time. This wasn't a man, it was a woman, and it relates to business. I was so angry and hurt. I did nothing but hold up to my end of the bargain and have been kind, understanding, and patient. In the end she got malicious and cruel, which if you read my blog, you know that's not in my nature, so I can't wrap my head around it. I swear on everything I love, I was in no way at fault and have done nothing wrong.

The reason I write about this is because we all have bad days. Some are worse than others, it's how we handle them. I immediately called a friend and spent the day with her. I knew being alone would only make me feel worse. This is why in a prior blog I wrote about having that list of people to turn to when you need help. It is so important.

Being a fitness fanatic, I had trained every day so far of the week. I took Sat. off instead of Sun. Although my stress level was high, I didn't emotionally eat, I stayed on track. When I woke up Sunday morning I took all my stress and anger out in the gym. I swear to you, it made me feel better inside and out. Monday I did the same, and today, I strength trained and CAN'T WAIT for yoga later this evening.

It's getting colder, the holidays are approaching, and there are going to be bad days. We are living in hard times, when you do have a bad day turn to someone that loves you and lean on them. Also, remember emotional eating will only make you feel worse.

Thank you for reading and no matter what shape and size you are, always love yourself!!!

When you are at a buffet or salad bar fill up on fresh veggies, not ones drenched in oil. Don't defeat the purpose of eating vegetables, try and eat as many raw or steamed as possible.
