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!

Goal Of the Week Feeding My Mind and My Soul- Day 7

Friday, May 27, 2011

Feeding my mind and my soul for this week focus was great!!!

I am experiencing the benefit of applying myself to working on what is upstairs (if you know what I mean).

The results are emoticon I now have a loving conscience and I remember to be my own best friend.

I am approaching exercise with love, patience and commitment. This is new for me. I am maturing.

I can come back to this focus on mind and soul whenever I feel my cup is 1/2 full. Fill it up again and keep stepping in life's path.
