This is a test

Yesterday was certainly a test of my body, mind and soul. I hate to be so vague but I was faced with a few personal problems. There have been times in my life when I would be depressed or upset I would turn to food. I could polish off an entire box of cereal or I would want 4 grilled cheese sandwiches.

Yesterday was one of those days where I wanted comfort...but this time I didnt go to food. Sure, I WANTED to eat bad things but I told myself I've worked way too hard to get to where I am. I found comfort in myself and in my friends. I am so thankful for the people I have in my life and the strenght and self-confidence that I have gained in the past year.

Today should be a much better day! The only thing is that I HATE what I am wearing. I have on a button down dress shirt that is WAY too big for me. I look like a kite walking down the hall way with my shirt flapping in the wind. Oh well....This shirt will be retired after today.

PS....I finished my 3 miles for the week this morning :)
