Finding balance in the small things

I’m so happy to share that today I actually felt like myself again! I think a lot of it has to do with eating  healthy food.  I just couldn’t handle all the junk food anymore. Despite the fact that the hospital dietician recommended low fiber, I’m adding back in things like salads, some spinach, fruits with skins. I MISS HEALTHY FOOD!!!!  Check out all the good grinds I had today – is it any wonder I’m in a great mood ?

It seems like it’s worth risking it, and eating the “good” stuff in moderation, at least for now. I meet with the GI specialist on Monday, and am hoping that he’ll give me some solid dietary guidelines, and of course, hoping to taper off of the prednisone.

Other factors in this awesomely  balanced day: work, puppy play time, a 3 mile jog, a workout on the elliptical, a phone call to my mom,  and a swim at Richardson’s. I also crossed some extraneous things off my “to-do” list. Overall, I feel accomplished, healthy and whole. I’ve missed this feeling.

Scene of my second client visit for the day at Wailoa park. 1st session was at Starbucks, where I paid $1 for my re-usable cup. 🙂

Lunch at Island Naturals: greek yogurt and a vegetarian avocado summer roll.

Home to play with Charlie Rose. Not pictured; little one’s discovery that it’s not a good idea to hop on the treadmill while it’s moving. 🙂 At least we weren’t running yet.
