get yourself a great day

Monday, January 18, 2010

I don't remember where this comes from...could be anything from local (Philadelphia, back when) news to some exercise program, but this quote is in my mind today, " get out there and make it a great day!"

I suspect we have pretty much the kind of day we set out to have - and if we don't set out purposefully to get ourselves a good day, chances are we *won't* get one. As I naturally run to pessimism and depression, this is a particular challenge for me, but I've been working at it for years, and I'm beginning to believe it.


If at first you don't succeed...

Okay, back to business.

Too many distractions in the last month - daughters home for the holidays, husband's serious health issues. But now kids are back to school and things should start to even out a little. I can make some positive changes instead of just being miserable about the way things are.

My first positive change? Coming back here.

Oh, and I bought a GOWEARFIT arm band - I love keeping track that way! emoticon

    Last month was rough for me too! I say whatever it takes for us to succeed; the arm band sounds like a good thing! Wishing you a fit New Year! emoticon

    Tell me more, what is this armband you talk about. I hear you about all the things that go on in life that keep us from taking care of ourself and putting ME first. I visited my daughter and in the city for 2 weeks over Christmas and believe it or not did not gain any weight over the holidays, but it was frustrating.... the kids don't eat anything I like to start with. My biggest accomplishment was actually leaving behind a box of chocolates that they had given me for Christmas!

Nice to visit but nice when the visit is over too! We need our own space. Hope your husband's health is on the mend as well. Remember you have to take care of you no one else will and if you're not well, who will take care of everyone else?
