Today I will be a turtle

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

My mind is muddled this week. I have too much going on I think... But I have things to accomplish and so I can't just muddle along. I started to panic about it, actually felt my BP going up and the headache coming on, then I took a step back. I went and read some Sparkblogs, a couple articles about stress and a really nice email from a Spark Friend. So I decided to change my mindset: Today I will be a turtle... slow & steady I will plod through each task one at a time. Here I go... emoticon

    LOL, when I say I turtle I mean I tuck in at home and don't go anywhere or do anything, which is actually helpful when I'm overwhelmed.

Good for you for recognizing your anxiety and taking steps to regroup and refocus.

    Turtle is Slow
Turtle is Steady
With house on her Back
She'll always be Ready!
She pokes her head out
To plod through the Day
And when she is Ready
She'll come out and PLAY!

Peaks and valleys

Friday, January 18, 2013

Yesterday was a day for peaks and valleys. I stayed on track with my eating! Woo Hoo! The audit at work went great! The girl, the dog and I went walking out in the desert and walked 1.5 miles in 35 minutes and actually enjoyed every minute of it! Then I had another unsatisfying call with my husband and it deflated the whole day... I need to work on not letting one thing bring me down, I know, but it's so hard for me to BE positive lately, let alone STAY positive all day. I let it get the best of me and went to bed upset. I told myself today is a new day but still feel unsettled. I'm on track today though and hope to shake it off and enjoy my weekend. Maybe if the valleys weren't so deep...

    Hang in there! You are right about not letting one thing define your whole day and especially your weekend!

Healthy thinking tip: Take your lipstick and write on your bedroom mirror "I am a BIW" It stands for beautiful, intelligent woman." Tell yourself that every day. It feels awkward at first but over time you actually start to believe it.

You are capable of being your own best friend. emoticon

    I hope you are at a peak now.....It is definitely hard not to allow others to dictate our moods when they know us so well.

God bless & enjoy everyday!

One Day at a Time

Thursday, January 17, 2013

So yesterday I went over my calorie count with chinese food. I saw it coming when we wouldn't be home in time for dinner. I started to stress about it. I was worried aboout undoing the progress I'd started to make. Then I took a deep breath and said NO to the anxiety. I tried to make good food choices and watch my portions - even at the buffet. When I got home I tracked my food, chatted on some posts and prepared my meals for today. I am on track and plan to stay that way. Little moments will not overwhelm me even when I can't control everything. Long walk planned for after work with my daughter and my dog. It'll be good for all of us!

    I went way over my calorie count yesterday too. The good news is each day starts at zero!! I think that will be my blog topic today. Hang in there, you are doing great. One meal won't undo you.
