My number 1 goal is to be healthy and I read recently that the best way to obtain a goal is to see yourself as you want to be, so....
I am healthy and fit!
I eat to fuel my body for my healthy lifestyle.
I have an active lifestyle that includes biking, walking, running and rock climbing.
I am a positive person in life, including my work.
I am financially successful.
I travel a lot for enjoyment.
I have some focusing to do. LOL
How do you see yourself?

Why can I do so well all day long and then binge like no tomorrow come evening? I have no reason that I am aware of and I feel awful. I really don't want to admit it but I am tired of denying it too. If I deny it then it must not exist right? Well it is real and it is going to kill me if I don't accept it and find a way to use food for fuel and not for comfort, acceptance, avoidance and the one hundred and one other excuses I come up with. I gave a close family member a "lecture" about excuses, perhaps I need to look in the mirror and give that lecture to myself.
OK - I can't change the past, but I can move forward and start again right now - even if it is bedtime!

Wow! I have just returned from an exciting journey to Korea. I now have a new beautiful daughter-in-law and I learned so much about the Korean culture and about myself in such a short time. I didn't get to see nearly enough, so I believe I will be planning my next trip for 2014.
I learned that diabetes and medication needs better planning when crossing the international date line. I had difficulty in trying to figure out when to take my meds and I did experience some highs while in Korea and on my way home.
One can go on no sleep for only so long, after returning from my trip I am having some difficulty readjusting, hence a blog at 2 am my time. LOL.
The food in Korea is so good and watching how it is cooked and the spices that are added. Their food is pretty spicy which I didn't expect, but I am sure it revs up the metabolism. I hope to include some of the things I learned to my own menu planning.
I learned that there is more to life than working and taking care of everyone else. There was a family emergency right before I left and I had to make some difficult decisions about going. Although it was difficult, it was the best decision I ever made for myself and in the end it benefited those in my family as well.
My son and his wife had a traditional Korean wedding and let me tell you that it was so beautiful. I haven't downloaded any photos yet, so can't post here quite yet. I will in a couple of days.
Over the next few days I will be working on my monthly and yearly goals to encompass body, mind and spirit.
Until then, I think I will try going back to bed again. Night all!

Yesterday, I started with the best of intentions and I was doing well. Then I had a diabetic reaction (my excuse to eat everything) I hate reactions! In addition, my husband then freaked out. He has his own issues to deal with, and sometimes he can say the wrong thing not realizing how he sounds, so as he was blaming me for having a reaction because I should have this stuff figured out. I calmly remind him that I spent my entire life focusing on other people and therefore have not figured this out! The rest of the day went a little better, but reactions do take a lot of out me. Today is a new day and I am spending more time on Sparkpeople again today. If it is to be, it is up to me....
