What Goes Up, Must Come Down

It’s been a very busy day and tomorrow just promises more of the same! Yikes! Apparently I am right at the pinnacle of the last couple of months of my crazy, hectic schedule! I feel like I am right at the very top of a roller coaster that had a long, steep climb to its peak, and that any second the floor will seemingly drop out from under me and I’ll finally be able to experience a blast of excitement as everything I have been anticipating comes rushing at me! I just hope the ride has been worth it… I really will be so glad when I have a chance to relax, but I am – perhaps unbelievably – actually enjoying myself for the most part. I love being productive!

So my mood is definitely up and I think I did pretty well with the food today. I turned down ice cream twice! (Gasp!) I still had a sweet tooth going, but I fed it a lot of fruit and that seemed to help. I squeezed in a really short walk, but that was all the exercise I managed since I was too busy to even go to dragon boating this evening. I wish it wasn’t the case, but I don’t have very high hopes for getting in a lot of activity over the last few days of this craziness. I will be on the go a lot though, so maybe that will burn all the calories I usually would with more regimented routines. One can only hope!
