My goals on this wednesday are
take a shower
care for nitro
See dr. barry
Go to lunch with my colleagues from friendly call
Finish my current book
Eat healthy and make good food choices
If I can achieve all of them I’ll be thrilled!
I woke up at 4 AM. I got up since I wasnt able to go back to sleep. I did go to bed pretty early though I was in bed by 10 PM. And I slept so thats good.
I am seeing my psychiatrist this morning. I am going to get to the hospital early, so that I will hopefully be finished early, since I have that awards ceremony and lunch today with my friendly call colleagues. I am being picked up to go to the ceremony and lunch at 12:30. I need to get out of my apt with dr. barry quickly, as I need to go to moms, get changed and put on make up.
I am looking forward to the awards ceremony. It should be a good day I think.
I am going to stay in mom and dads tonight. Im not sure of what time I’ll get back to their house at, and it just doesnt make sense to go home to my own house after it. I have to go to the basement club in the morning, I have a meeting to attend there about lunch hosting, so I will go directly there from mom and dads house tomorrow, and then I will go home after my meeting, since I will have Amanda my PA coming on friday morning.
I am in a good mood today. Plus, another few days of Oct. have gone by. Yay. I am so glad. I’ll just be so glad when Oct. is over.
Todays gratitude list is below. So much to be grateful for again today.
1 My furry friend, Nitro.

So today, my question to you is this…
What has benefited you most in your healing journey?
For me, it is a few things. Writing is one. Having this blog, somewhere to share, has helped me so so much. I love my blog. I love all of you my blog buddies. Your all amazing and you’ve been so kind to me. It doesn’t go unnoticed.
Having a therapist has also helped us greatly. Its hard work but so worth it. Processing memories, doing EMDR is hard. But I wouldn’t change it for the world. I have gotten so much out of therapy.
Music, reading, hot tea, essential oils, my dog, all also help me.
So what helps you and has benefited you in your healing?
So I didnt go volunteering this afternoon.
I had a headache. So decided to stay home and rest. I napped for 2 hours. The nap did me the power of good.
I feel so much better now that I napped. I felt bad for canceling at the last minute, but I really couldnt help it. My supervisor understood.
Sometimes you just need to rest up when you dont feel good.
I’m never out so it was really a one off for me to not go.
so I had a fab workout! I did well! I went on the treadmill for 25 mins, and the bike for 10 mins! I did 1 KM on the treadmill and 2 KM on the bike! I feel great! It has really lifted my mood to exercise!
I’m all set now for the rest of the day! When I came out of the gym I went and bought a sandwich for my lunch, I chose chicken and stuffing, on brown bread! So a healthy option for lunch! I already ate it once I got home! I was starving as all I’d eaten was some fruit this morning.
A funny thing happened. When I got my taxi to go home, I told the driver I was going to my own house. The driver knew me, he usually picks me up. He thought I’d said I wanted to go to my parents house though! So he brought me there instead of bringing me home! Luckily I noticed when we got out of the car. He was kind and said it was his mistake and brought me home and didn’t charge me anything extra for the extra journey!
I’m just relaxing now for a few hours before I am going out again to go volunteering. My supervisor called me, she’s picking me up at 2 PM. I am tanked up on coffee now so my energy levels are good! 🙂
Happy Tuesday everyone. How are you all?
I’m off to the gym in a few minutes, looking forward to my workout.
I actually slept good, didn’t think I would but I did when I finally fell asleep around 3 AM.
I slept until around seven, so got four hours of uninterrupted sleep which I badly needed.
Just waiting for my PA to come no, she’s going to the gym with me. We have two hours but I’ll probably only stay in the gym for an hour.
Weighed myself this morning and seem to be down a few pounds, I’m down around 4 lb I think in total, so very pleased, as I won’t be weighing in this week I decided to weigh myself at home on my own skills.
I think on my eating of healthy food and my good habits are paying off finally, I am delighted.
