Yesterday was a very long day for me. We had a Family Curriculum Night event that lasted until 7pm (my day started at 4:30 a.m.). I came home to my office and worked until I fell asleep at my desk. I awoke sometime in the early morning and actually went to bed.
This morning, I awoke at 5 a.m. realizing that I did not complete my blog post for yesterday. I also remembered what I wanted to blog about. All day, my thoughts kept drifting to how my life is once again shifting upward. I am expanding and building endurance mentally, physically, and spiritually.
I was physically tired because I help set-up the gym for the event at the school. However, it was a different kind of tired. I felt tremendously energetic and happy; in contrast, a year ago for the same event, I could barely breathe while walking. The level of inflammation in my body has reduced to the point that I do not feel any arthritic pains in my hands, knees, or feet.
Obviously, what I take into my body has a far greater effect than I realized – good or bad. It’s focusing on the good that I know I must continue to do. Yesterday, I chose salads and healthy proteins all day. When the school provided pizza, salad, and dessert- I maintained the course with salad and lean chicken breast (very tasty).
