but that was yesterday...

Thursday, August 02, 2012

and today is a new day. simple, but i think it's one of the important lessons here on SP - that each day we wake up with a clean slate, a nutrition tracker and a fitness tracker just waiting for us to do things right - do things better!

yesterday was sooo much fun, we visited a dear old friend whose kids (all grown, like ours) grew up do be close friends of our kids, who are here in sweden as well. we took a walk in the forest and picked chantarelles, which made a wonderful appetizer, and then we had dinner. i love sitting in the kitchen, chopping vegetables with DD and my old friend, sipping on a glass of wine. and it would have been better if i would have been stronger, and had not kept dipping into the bowl of nuts and chips. or if i had not refilled that glass of wine one more time. and then there were the other baked goodies served with coffee earlier and dessert later. but i did. and i enjoyed it.

but today is a new day - and i get a new chance to embrace, a challenge to accept - and SP taught me that it's ok.

    Well you know my philosophy. Every day is the first day of the rest of my life. Yesterday is done and today is today. It is really cool that you had such a nice time with family and old friends. That emotional bonding time is great for your mental health. Welcome back on the bus emoticon

    You are 100% right! This journey is a lifelong journey. And sometimes that journey means being with loved ones, enjoying their company, and enjoying the bounty of food this wonderful earth has to offer us. So glad you enjoyed yourself! And so glad you aren't letting one day of enjoyment turn into a detour off your path to reach your goals.
