Happy Friday everyone,
Quick update on my delicious dinner last night: it was delicious. It was so yummy and it was truly a great time–absolutely free of Ed. It was truly a night of freedom and I am so deeply grateful for it. It is nights like last night that remind me of why recovery is so worth fighting for.
So moving on to today.
You all know the drill by now when I indulge in food or eat a little too much…my body gets sore and I get bloated. Usually this only happens to me after my Friday and Saturday night dinners with family and friends, but, this week I guess I started one day early.
Actually, I kind of started a few days early because I ate out at a restuarant on Tuesday night too. Let’s just say I had an early start to my weekend indulgence.
When I woke up today and felt the soreness and bloating, I had two options.
1. I could freak out over it, go to the gym instead of go to see E, and really really eat very safe today and be worried about my dinner tonight and all the food that would be surrounding me this weekend.
2. I could just accept what is and enjoy my weekend with the food,bloating and soreness as best as I can. And one way to do that is to wear clothes that I know I will feel good in and clothes that will be forgiving.
So leggings it is.
I wore leggings today. I will wear them tomorrow. And I will probobly wear them on Sunday and maybe even Monday (thankfully I have multiple pairs).
They don’t have a size on them and they don’t have tight waistbands on them and therefore they can’t make me feel worse on days like today.
I’m not saying it’s been easy to live in the moment and to stay positive today when it is inevidable that I am sore and bloated and when I know I have many more encounters with food coming up, but it beats cuddling up with Ed.
So if wearing leggings for a few days is the worst thing I have to deal with this week in terms of Ed, then I can do that.
Hello to my stretchy, no size, comfy leggings and hello life.
