Lovin' this summer time stuff. Go a whole 2 weeks of vacation for the first time in years and loved every minute of it. Trying to do a little writing several days a week. I am working on a book and find writing very therapeutic. Oh it's not likely a book I will have published, just one that I plan on passing down to my daughter and her children when she has them. I have been doing a lot of soul searching these days about what direction my life is going in and what direction I would like it to take. Been off school for a couple of semesters but am starting back in Sept to complete my master's in nursing education. Not sure what direction that will take me. However, whatever happens in my life, I realized 3 months ago that I really, really needed to take some control over my wt and make healthy lifestyle changes to lose wt the slow but sure way. Not depriving myself just making sensible choices. Like the other night, i thought I'd get a chocolate bar. Then I decided, " no I don't really need that at this point" . So I made the choice to defer my want for an unhealthy snack. But if I had really craved it , I would have given in b/c I would have wanted it twice as much asfter that. Keeping fresh chopped veggies in the fridge for those urges for crunchy munchies. Drinking those 8 glassess of water a day. Have a room in basement for my workout. Colecting workout tapes at second hand store to keep the working out varied and fresh. Plus, summertime activities such as gardening, swimming etc. Feeling more positive than I have in months. So whereever life leads, I am facing it with a healthier body and mind. Thanks SP for three mts of encouragement. Don't know for sure how I will do on today's weigh in but whatever comes, I am ready to face another day, week , month. etc. Going to restrategies and set some new goals and hope to do this bofore the day is over. Will keep my SP friends posted. "Til than have a great monday everyone!
