I haven't written a gratitude list since February. That doesn't mean I'm not grateful. I give thanks every day for the many blessings in my life!!! But... I have found that putting it in writing is a great reminder and that even when I'm feeling down or lacking motivation, I have much to be grateful for! My goal is to write a weekly gratitude list of 3 things I am grateful for. What better month to start than November?
Today I am grateful for:
My happy, healthy grandson
My World Champion Boston Red Sox

It was a tough week at work, with a very unexpected "reorganization". Although I've only been there for a few months, This was very upsetting. Several co workers with whom I had become friendly lost their jobs. Unfortunately this has been happening all too often, and was part of the reason I chose to leave my previous job. I was looking for more stability. I've been an RN for nearly 28 years, and never could have imagined feeling insecure about my job! So, this week, I'm grateful to still have my job. I'm also grateful that I'm an RN and can likely find "a job" even if it's not the "ideal job" if need be. Finally, I'm grateful for my decision to go back to school. I'm working towards my master's degree in health administration and hopeful that this will give me an edge in what as become a very competetive and unstable workplace!

Truth be told, I've been avoiding the scale!
In the past I've been discouraged by weekly weigh ins, especially when I'm doing everything right and the numbers barely budge or even move in the wrong direction. I decided to face my fear this morning and jump on. I wasn't expecting much since I'm just getting restarted and have only made a few small changes over the last 2 weeks, but i wanted to have a better idea of where I'm really starting from. Well, imagine my surprise to be down 6.4 lbs!!!
I've been struggling to find motivation and I know the number on the scale isn't everything, but let's face it, we all like to see a big loss! So, for today at least, I'm a happy girl!

OK, not really, which is why I have such a hard time reaching my weight loss and fitness goals! I spend all my time and energy taking care of everyone and everything else and have no time left for me! Starting today I'm making me a priority. I know that a healthier and happier me will do an even better job taking care of those that depend on me. So, back to basics..... tracking my food and fitness, counting calories, planning meals, and finding time for myself. Wish me luck
