I went to my cousin's funeral this morning, and it was a wonderful celebration of his life. His grandkids asked that people be happy for him, celebrate that he is no longer in pain, and is running and doing the things he loved doing, including arguing with his brother and sister, and hanging out with his parents and dog. His daughter said that she was blessed to have been able to spend the best part of his life with him, and that she has no regrets. I'm not sure many of us can say that about our parents. I'm not sure I can. I still have both of my parents, but it's a tough situation, and I don't like spending time with them. My cousin's daughter put a different perspective on this for me this morning, and now I need to figure out what I want to do next. Time to do some big time thinking.
It's 33 degrees out today, so I'll be heading out for a walk soon. I am looking forward to clearing my head and enjoying the "warmth".
Goals for today:
~ 80 oz water - 88 yesterday
~ 10,000 steps - 10k yesterday
~ 25 flights of stairs (this seems like a lot but I only use the upstairs bathroom at home, and that helps alot!) 16 yesterday
~ journal every bite - I try to write before I bite, and am finding success with this method
~ smile at least once an hour - we all need joy and happiness in our lives!
~ earn 75 Sparkpoints - 75 yesterday
~ eat clean today
~ learn something new today and remember what I learned - I learned that I can make chicken caccitore for 2 not for 6!
~ Floor exercises - 15 regular push ups, 25 modified pushups, 200 crunches, 100 abductors, 100 adductors, 75 second plank
~ focus on this lifestyle I have chosen for myself and don't sweat the small stuff
