WIAW on a rough day

I will admit it. Yesterday was a tough day in my recovery process. I have been so incredibly positive about the entire situation, but reality finally crept in and I collapsed under the pressure. There are so many things going on in my life at this moment in time and breaking a hip has not exactly made any of it easier. So I just cried and vented and frowned and sighed a lot and by the end of the day I had it out of my system.

I just needed some hours dedicated to feeling sad about my circumstance in order to come back to the positive side. Hopping around on crutches for another 3 weeks, still feeling discomfort and dealing with a foot long scar on my rear are things no one should have to endure, but they are part of my reality now and I am dealing accordingly.

So here’s to accepting a difficult day and moving forward to a time when all of this is just a story πŸ™‚

Even though I was not in the best mood for most of the day I still had to eat.

Breakfast involved some cottage cheese and handfuls of one of my new favorite cereals – Honey Nut Chex

Lunch was a typical salad with turkey slices that I forgot to photograph, but dinner was an incredible concoction of Trader Joe’s goodies: Brown rice, salmon burger, kale, mango, asian dressing.

And guess what? I made this meal completely on my own in the kitchen. Yup! I hopped around sauteing kale and cooking salmon and it felt great to be the chef of the house again.

So the day ended on a high note and smiles after playing with this goofy ball of fur.

What makes you smile on a tough day?

    Dude (or Dudette, I don’t know what the female form of dude is),
    Your cat is awesome!
    To answer your question, my dog’s make me smile on a lousy day.

    Also, please excuse your mom for her Freudian Slip. I think your making her “mile” goes back to the whole running thing. Once you get into swimming I am sure you will be making her SWILE, but that is discussion for a different day.

    One more thing,

    I like your cat so much I am making your kitty my profile picture on facebook for a day.

    P.S. I like your dinner too

    P.S.S. As much as I like your cat and your dinner I don’t like your cereal. I think you would get more nutritionally out of eating the box and taking a multi vitamin.
