Loving Life Day 64 February 18, 2013

Monday, February 18, 2013

Today I'm a bit sad. One of our local morning show personalities 17 month old daughter passed away this weekend from complications from surgery. She had CDH, but that didn't stop her from loving life. I didn't know her personally, but feel like I know her and her family from her mom talking about her on TV. This just shows how precious life is, and that we need to embrace each day, each moment as it comes and let go of the things that just don't matter in life. God Bless this family, and take good care of your newest Angel, Amazing Grace!

I have lots to do today at work, and have to figure out how to get it all done. I am hoping for some news from corporate today, news that will make my life at work a lot easier over all, but for the near future will make it much busier. We need some new software, and it will take some time to get it implemented, but will be so much better for us in the future.

Meals are all planned for the day, and I usually don't have issues sticking to my meal plan, my issue is my snack plan! I have healthy snacks in the house, and don't eat many snacks each day, but when I do snack, I usually over do it. I need to start measuring and weighing my snacks, just like I do the rest of my foods.

It's cold today, but I will get outside for a walk during lunchtime today. It's only 12 degrees out, but I'm sure by lunchtime the windchill will be within my acceptable walking temps, windchill needs to be above 10 degrees F. If it's still nice after work, and hubby and I don't have to sign bank paperwork, I will take the doggie out for a walk after work too.

My Mantra:

I am the only one who can do this for myself.
I make the choice of what I put in my mouth and what I don't.
I make the choice to exercise or not daily
I make the choice to have a positive frame of mind
I make the choice to be healthy!

Goals for today:
~ 80 oz water
~ 10,000 steps
~ 15 flights of stairs
~ keep an open mind
~ journal every bite
~ weigh and measure food today
~ journal thoughts and feelings surrounding eating today
~ smile at least once an hour
~ learn something new and remember what I learned
~ eat a fruit or vegetable with every meal and as one snack today
~ focus on this lifestyle I have chosen for myself and don't sweat the small stuff

    Sorry to hear about the baby's death in surgery! How very hard on the family, especially the parents! Praying for God's comfort for all effected.

    I love how you plan your meals and day, it's a great way to accomplish more of your goals than just going through willy nilly! Hope you have a good day full of good news from corporate! emoticon emoticon
