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
10-15 minutes a day which for me is great! I'm proud of myself just for that fact.
We did not participate in
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
my food as I eat it, I'm more likely to track....I've got to come up with a different strategy though
eventually so that I can begin to count those nasty calories. I so dread that. I'm doing baby
steps or in my case,
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!!
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!
