When defense is offensive and my back is up–on a wall. I think it’s safe to say that I’m poised for a great fall. Hump Day or Down in the Dumps Day, it matters not at all.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men. Do nothing to put me together again it’s Awareness, Acceptance, and trying to Adapt. That turns me to a winner and leaves addiction slapped.
I am thankful to have had two good days in a row. I’m working on the third one and thought I’d let it show.
In explanation of the defense being offensive, I realized I was making excuses to myself (or maybe it was sugar making excuses) in defense of some poor choices I had made and seemed to be continuing to make. The offensiveness was aches, pains, muddled thinking, and feeling down that comes as a consequence of not using the tools that work for my best interest! In the processing of this, I’m pretty sure there aren’t any raisins for me to eat dried fruit. It wakes up my addiction and tends to make me uncomfortable.
Today I did some driving–about 250 miles. The return trip had potential for a justification that eating would help me stay awake and alert. But instead of snacking, I pulled into a rest area and took a nap for 10 minutes. Following that, I took a brisk walk to the rest room. Rested and comfortable again, I continued my trip. But I didn’t trip on food! I was aiming to get to the Jazzercise class on my way home and I made it with two minutes to spare.
I’m feeling like I’m put back together again!
