Not to sound cliche, but I knew this would be hard -- just not this hard. I don't have nearly as much will power as I thought I did. I haven't missed an injection (which I was worried about remembering), but I haven't been as strict with the diet as I planned to be (which I wasn't worried about). I'm either not getting all the food I'm supposed to eat, or I'm eating one of the donuts the company puts out for employee birthdays once a month. I think it will get easier. The hardest part is to not just give up entirely because I haven't done it perfectly so far. That whole black and white mentality thing I've got going on is really hard to deal with sometimes!
On the creativity side of things, though, I'm going to visit my aunt's house this weekend and spend some quality time doing "art stuff" with my young cousin. I'm really looking forward to it, and we'll post the results of our mutual creative genius here.
