Positive Days

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

So the past few days have been much of a blur. With headaches, the days seem to have meshed.

However, I have been able to continue eating healthy emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon and exercising emoticon emoticon 10-15 minutes a day which for me is great! I'm proud of myself just for that fact. emoticon

We did not participate in emoticon Mardi Gras emoticon this year which for me isn't a big deal as I wasn't brought up that it was something we just "had" to do. I will say though that the 2 experiences I've had were lots of good, clean fun. A part of me did miss not getting to go this year.

I'm finding that if I track emoticon my food as I eat it, I'm more likely to track....I've got to come up with a different strategy though emoticon emoticon emoticon eventually so that I can begin to count those nasty calories. I so dread that. I'm doing baby emoticon steps or in my case, emoticon LOL....one thing at a time and right now, getting my exercise in as a habit daily is number one priority. After that, making healthy food choices. Those are my two small steps to make habit before I begin that calorie counting....however, watching what I eat and trying to notice the portion size is helping me to unknowingly to myself, watch the calories. I'm learning! Yay!! emoticon emoticon I did look at some food scales over the past few days and am looking forward to getting one soon. I know this will help with portion control which in turn will help with calorie counting.

It's all a process in the making and I'm happy for it.

My sweet son stopped by my office this afternoon and it was such a wonderful surprise to see him. He stays so busy with his young life. He also brought along my granddog......yes, you read that correctly. He's 22 with a chocolate lab so she's my "grand dog" LOL Her name is Koko and she's spoiled rotten but adores my son. She's incredibly smart and minds better than some children I know LOL

Anyway, it's the end of the day for me. I'm actually looking forward to the beginning of another day....it's been a really long time since I have said that. Thank God for new days, second chances and forgiveness!

    Sounds like you've been able to stay on track! emoticon

    I don't know what kind of scales you've been looking at, but our food scale is a nice digital one. It cost maybe $25 or $30 but it has hundreds of foods listed so that if you're weighing apples, let's say, you push the apple number and it automatically tells your calories. I'm not sure what you're looking for, but I thought I'd just share what works in our house.

    Take care!

    emoticon It's hard to eat healthy (hard to eat period) or exercise when you have a migraine. I know & sympathize with you. Hope your feeling better. Great job pushing through the headache and getting in those fitness minutes.
