Goal Of the Day eat to live - Day 4

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

"Steps towards Happiness begin with Awareness"

" The first step is to be aware of your attention and your expression in the moment.

You can not change something you are not aware you are doing.

This also takes the attention away from the images in your mind of what you “should be.” Just by shifting your attention you interrupt the pattern of rejection. To help you make the shift ask these types of questions throughout the day. What am I expressing? What is my attitude? What emotion am I conveying in my voice?

These questions will bring your attention to your expression in the moment."
by Gary van Warmerdam

This is what I do all the time. I call it checking in with Janet. It works for me to bring attention to what is going on with me.

Physically, emotionally and spiritually.

I am resting and nurturing myself to day.

Have a great evening!!!!! emoticon emoticon

    I often do self talk to get me through difficult situations. It is a fun practice to keep me grounded and in the moment. Enjoy your day of rest. emoticon

    Nice quote. I'm always advocating being where you are. If you're not IN the moment you are in, how can you affect any change? You only change the future by changing this moment--and you CAN'T change the past... so there you are! LOL

Great! Use the wisdom you've shared today to create a wonderful day for yourself--you've already made mine! LOL

Goal Of the Day eat to live - Day 3

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

I worked a full day today. Coverage for the receptionist. Day was hot and long. Going to bed. I work part time as a HR assistant. I work about 16 hours a week. This is what I need but not want I wanted. I am very grateful for this. I am a recovering workaholic.

All is well!!! emoticon. emoticon

    emoticon and emoticon, It is hard habit to break.
I am not a workaholic but have lived with one for over thirty years.
I had to accept him as he is because he is unhappy when he is not working. I resented it when the children were young but now I embrace it, I do not sit getting lonely, I use the time he is at work for exercise and we arrive home together and have dinner together and I read any thing not related to work while he continues to do work related tasks.

So enjoy the freedom of breaking that habit. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I work 15 hours a week and have had to learn to enjoy the fewer hours. I too was a workaholic and it has taken a while to learn to have fun. I love the job I have now and the people I work with.

Goal Of the Day eat to live - Day 2

Monday, May 30, 2011

I have planned my food today and entered them in the tracker.

I will spend some of my day with the kinect xbox.

I will do some research on what my body is doing and why.

I will keep myself busy doing some housework and playing games.

I will write what is going on in the inside of me.

Not to let things simmer. I know my mental health is very important right now.

Laughter is good i will watch a comedy video my favorite is Sinbad he is old school and makes me laugh.

Music is a must I will spend twenty minis or so just listening to music.

    Music is a mood lifter also makes exercise enjoyable not feel like work.

I love the fast beat with drums. We do not get Sinbad emoticon but Ilove the Comedy Channel Gags for laughs.

You have a great plan for today so stick with it emoticon

Goal Of the Week eat to live - Day 2

Sunday, May 29, 2011

This is hard to admit. I realize today that my choice of foods have interfered in a very important body organ. My kidney. I have not been feeling well over the last week or so but I thought I was being lazy.

Well, now I know better. I woke up with some discomfort. I then it hit me my light emoticon moment. So, I took out an old diet which corrects this for the time. I will make an appointment with the Dr on Tuesday and see what is going on.

Here is the balancing act. How much extra attention do I give myself. i also realize I must change the way I eat. Foods that I have been taught that are not good for me and now important that i include them. On and On.......

1. I will make changes in the foods tracker
2. I will put together a list of foods I can have.
3. Remind myself I can do something about this
4. I wasted no time in reponsding to my body that was a show of love for myself
5. I am trying not to be disappointed and keep my head up and trust in something much bigger than me.

The first thing I wanted to do was close my spark page and disappear. I could not allow myself to do that. After all what would I do without All of you

    Diet is SO important with this issue, m'dear. Have you checked out the LIBRARY yet? There's some basic information as well as a food list--just click on the team name at the top of this page, and you'll find a list of discussion topics, and the Library is one that's on there as a 'sticky' TOPIC--which means it's permanent. It's where we post information and links that are helpful references for anyone just starting out--plus new research results, etc.

Check it out my dear, and TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!
