Question for the day. Today, I woke up late and wasn't able to get my morning workout in. Actually I didn't feel well at all, but I promised myself at least 10 minutes each day. So today, I did 10 minutes on my first break. Didn't do anything else all day, but I did something. Tonight my Fitbit came in and I am excited to see how that adds to my program.
Beyond that, it was a horrible day at work, my husband quit smoking but he is down in the dumps and I have a headache and am ready for bed. But I am still grateful that I did 10 minutes and I tracked everything I ate today!

Today I am grateful for this day. I came up with my new mantras to help me on my journey. The first is for exercise. "Exercise is required medication" and second for food. "If I track it, I can eat it". I made a picture with some clip art and put it on the closet doors in front of my desk in my office. I have decided that those doors will be my inspiration wall. Everything that inspires me, that I wish for and that I dream for.
Tonight I spend time with my husband and off to bed.

November 3, 2002 was the first day of my journey to live without smoking. It was very difficult at first, but as each day passed it became just a little easier. I had adopted the attitude of AA, but instead of alcohol, I said cigarettes. One cigarette is not an option and as each day passed, it became so ingrained into my thinking that it really is only a blip on the radar if I even think about it now.
Perhaps I need to re-think my approach to my eating. I have been having a difficult time and keep doing stuff I don't want to do. Eat out, eat unhealthy. I guess I haven't given it much thought until writing this down. So what will my mantra be now? I will sleep on it and have something my morning!

Think about 3 things that are on your bucket list. What goal would you go for if anything was possible? I would love to travel. I am so excited to go to Korea in December and get my first stamp in my passport (which I just applied for this summer). I am going for my son's wedding, but from the photos he has taken, it is beautiful. There are so many places I want to see and family I want to visit!
What can you do to feel like that in your life today? Sometimes we just have to go for it. Plan the next trip and just do it rather than spend all of our time working.

First to respond to those that posted to my last blog. I love the ideas! The ring is definitely a goal for me, being able to put mine on. Under 40" waist and towel day! Excellent!
More overtime today but off by 9 am, back to regular shift tomorrow. But I am talking about today. After work, conversed with my health coach, went into town to vote early and then picked up a couple of things for the house. I then received my utility bill and it was less than 1/2 of what I used to pay for the same house, different town! Lovin it!
My husband made me my favorite meal of stir fry for dinner. I also did 25 minutes walking around my new neighborhood.
I am grateful for what I have today and prayers to those affected by Sandy!
