Another sunny day, hope you all enjoyed it as I did.

Sunday, May 13, 2012

Hope you all had a nice Mother's Day.

I did. A pretty perfect, sunny, Sunday.

Tomorrow is weigh in day for me, and even though I don't have a good sense of whether or not I will see a loss, I'm not terribly concerned about it... For the first time in my adult life, I am just not stressing about that number. I feel like I am going steadily in the right direction, eating well 90% of the time, and exercising more consistently than ever before. What could be better?

I think I just realized it this minute, but I'm not afraid of the scale any more! That makes this a unique Mother's Day for me indeed.

    Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day, and hope the scale was good to you this AM! It's just a number, it's how you feel that counts!!! emoticon

    It was nice here, too. I had errands to run but got out for a bit in the evening. Today's going to be nice again but I'm getting together with family for Mother's Day. Maybe I can queeze in some outdoor activity this evening again.

Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!!

I just had a great day today...

Friday, May 11, 2012

Hiked, a long way
Cleaned up and did some chores
Worked, a little bit
Visited some
Shopped a bit
Ate half a donut
Sat in the sun for a little while
Cooked a tasty dinner
Chatted, with my best friend
Knitted on a sweater for a friend
Watched a pretty good movie
Still to come; a good night's sleep

Stellar day in my book.

    It sounds like a wonderful way to spend a day! Makes me think that it's time for me to have some "me" time.

A goal for May....

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

I have been thinking and thinking about what my May goals are. I have lots of little goals that I could write down, but they won't end in May, or change at the end of a challenge. If I don't achieve a goal, I won't forget about it, or take it off my list.

Each of my little goals are stops along the way, all heading toward the same ultimate goal. So, I guess, what I really have is one - singular - measurable - life permeating - goal that everything else falls under.

This year I would like to go to bed on New Years Eve and not make that dreaded promise to myself before I go to sleep. You know the one I mean?

The one that goes "Tomorrow, I am going on a diet. I am going to give up all the "bad foods" and only eat "healthy foods." Tomorrow I'll start exercising, regularly. Tomorrow I am going to get healthy once and for all."

My goal is to be a healthy, physically fit, active person, who is happy with how I feel, inside and out, when I go to sleep at night.

I am well on my way there now, thanks to SP and all of my friends here. I really think I am going to make it in 2012 - so that is my goal for May, and June, and July, and August.....

    You couldn't have said that better. What a great goal for New Year's Eve. Can I copy that? I want to have that same feeling. I'm about the cry just thinking about it.
