One Day at a Time!

Thursday, July 12, 2012

When you break down goals into smaller steps, it isn't even that hard. All you have to do is say "yes" to the right things, one day at a time.

    I need help with even getting through 1 day. I do try and then I slip within hours if not minutes. I could use your help here.

    It really is all about trusting yourself to make the changes you want/need to make. It's all about believing you can. Then it will happen.

    Even though I carry around a lot of weight I'm very happy with myself, where I am in this life and where I'm going. Yes, there are frustrating things that happen, but I don't need to react to them. I think of my life like my hour and 15 minute commute to work. When others drive angry, I get out of their way, let them pass and keep enjoying the beauty of day. Hope you are too in spite of what the scale says, or how much your knees complain or whatever else is happening in your life. Choose to be happy and content and you will be.

Thank you again for your kind words.

If you won't believe in yourself, why should anyone else?

Tomorrow is Monday

Monday, Monday, can't help that day etc etc

Vacation has ended and it was not a bad experience. Despite eating out often and many lunches on the beach, calorie intake remained within range for six of the seven days and not too much over on that day. Friday is always an exciting day because it has been dubbed "eat the refrigerator empty day" so we don't have to bring a lot of stuff home. Fortunately, this year, we shopped a lot more intelligently than in years past and there was not the usual squat and gobble all day long. It was a cute sight, seeing the grandkids eating ice cream directly out of the half gallon containers and really enjoying themselves (and not saving much for me).

Oh well back to the grind
