This week has been an interesting one filled with many twists and turns. But life has many bumps in the road, or maybe I should say our life's journey has many bumps in the road. I found myself stressed at the start of the week as I allowed something that was said upset me. I decided that instead of having a negative reaction I would accent the positive and eliminate the negative. Then midweek, I had something else happen personally and am still confused by it.
I am still focused and I am still determined to DO THIS...to DO ME! I am reading my ECD book and trying to get more information. I am planning to research the teams on Spark and one of my Sparkfriends has offered to email some info she found online. I realize that Tosca Reno is not the one who created The Eat Clean Diet (she even says as much in her book). However, I decided that I did like her approach and so I purchased her book. I shared some of the info from the book with my boss-she hates to read-and she is hopping on the bandwagon with me. My Mom is currently doing South Beach and said that after she sees me applying it, she may do the same.
I am SO excited about 2 different things. I hate checking/opening the mail. Well on Thursday I got to interesting things I opened. The first was my scorecard rewards. This shows how many points I'm awarded for the purchases I had made with my Visa Checkcard. Well I knew my program had ended but it was a recap of how many I'd accrued. I'd never claimed anything with what I did have. So here's what I picked down to the color:
I was able to get the iPod Nano 16GB! I'm so excited because there are so many cool features with this. I've never had one. I've got an iPod shuffle that a good friend gave me for my bday last year. And I do love it. I just want to be able to put more songs on and be able to see the order or change it around or customize my running. Needless to say, I'm PSYCHED! It will take 4-6 wks for me to get. I know this will be great for my workouts!
Ok that was one thing. The 2nd thing that I got in the mail was a reminder about my service award from work. I think I mentioned in a blog a couple of months ago that I went to a luncheon for having 5 years at the hospital (I've actually been there 6 yrs this July). Well somehow in my not paying attention to the mail, I missed that I need to claim my 5 year service award. So this morning I went to the site and this is what I ordered there:
I'm excited about this because 1)I have never ever been camping;
2)I want to try kayaking or white water rafting; but most importantly 3) I WANT TO LIVE & EXPERIENCE NEW THINGS! I want to take Emma outdoors and to try these new things. I'm so excited by the possibilities in my life. So even though I am not where I'd like to be on the
or with my
, I am not frustrated. I am living in the now, not the future. I'm so thrilled to be happy with the possibilities. I'm going to live each day to the fullest and make the most of it!
What have you gone and done? Are you living YOUR life to the fullest? Are you making time to DO YOU?!?!
LET'S DO THIS!
WE ARE WORTH IT & WE DESERVE IT
