So here we are starting the first full week of the month. Where has the year gone?
I sat down today to try and write out a 'menu' to follow for the week. This is HARD for me with all the unknowns. So I roughed it and will do my best to follow it. I know of at least twice I will be eating out so those days I will work at making better choices. I am thinking the crock pot may be my friend as I'm often too tired to care about cooking after working all day and then having enough to freeze for another time. Plus, I will be going through the freezer and working on using thing up. Yes, I think that is part of the plan as well.
The week ahead will be busy with deadlines at work but by the end I will have a big 'sigh' of relief. Then the next two weeks are short ones for me so I'm happy about that. I will be spending a weekend with our friend LILYGAL at a sewing retreat next weekend and the following is Thanksgiving. I've been working hard on preparing things so I can sit and sew and gab and enjoy the 'down' time. I need it.
So as the month starts, I am feeling strong again about this journey. I've gotten my veggies in all weekend which isn't easy. I've gotten exercise in but haven't 'killed' myself over it and have enjoyed some 'me' time in my sewing room.
A good weekend, a good mindset as we move on into the month and the holiday season. Hoping you all find the strength to keep at it as well.
