It has been a nice day today.
I decided I needed to get out of the house.One of my buddies told me I needed to make myself go somewhere so I did. I have been wanting to go to some local thrift stores so off we headed.The Hospice one and Boys Ranch one were both closed.We were heading home when Bill remembered the Veteran one that our daughter in law worked at.It was open.So I go to rummage and visit with her. I found 2 pink depression glass candle stick holders.My youngest daughter has a lot of it I gave her that was my grandmothers. If she doesn't piss me off I might give them to her. She did call me last night which was nice. We were big spenders.All together we spent $10. But I got out of house for awhile.
Earlier in the day I told Bill I needed someone to cut my toenails for me.He said he would.Next thing I know he comes in room with hedge cutters. Real smart butt but it was funny.He said he started to bring the skill saw. We do some silly things but we do laugh together a lot.
I bought some pork cubed steaks and Bill just made himself a sandwich with one and said they were good.They were on sale but none were out.I asked and they made some up for me.I was suppose to go back in a few minutes and get them.Next thing I know the seafood guy is bringing them across the store to me. Bill says he has to keep an eye on us.I thought it was nice. Not only that. I had already forgot about them.
Ok Here is a piece a friend emailed me that I thought was good. With all the temptations we are going to have in the weeks coming I thought this might help us.
The 6-Step Plan for Relapse Prevention
1. Step back. Ask, "What happened?" Look objectively at what brought on the lapse.
2. Calm down. Take a few deep breaths and remind yourself, "One slip-up does not make me a failure."
3. Renew your vows. Remind yourself of how far you have come, and how disappointed you’ll be if this one slip-up undoes all your hard work.
4. Learn from it. Think about what pushed you to your lapse (your food diary notes can help). What can you do differently next time?
5. Implement your "back on track" strategy right away.
6. Call for backup. Ask for help from those people who are supportive and who want you to succeed.
Now get rid of all that leftover candy. Hope you had a good weekend.
