Life is busy

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

The last to days have been stressful. Due to emergency surgery on my aunt, whom I have been really close to, I have not had 100% success at my goals. However, before I get too critical, I have had small successes. I have maintained my water intake and have consumed at least 8 glasses of water a day this week. I have also stayed under my high end calorie range even if the choices I have had to make were not the best or most fulfilling. I have still worked in some walking and strength training. I had walked the hospital parking lot to get exercise in on Tuesday and today I found room in my bag for my exercise bands and had fun trying new exercises while watching TV in the waiting room. And I have also made sure I have at least logged in everyday, even if it took me using my sisters Kindle fire to access Spark People!

And I found time to browse the yarn shop down the street. Maybe not the best use of my money however I have found a simple neckerchief pattern that I plan on producing numerous times over for the craft fair my daughter-in-law and I will be participating in this summer. It also helped tremendously with the stress factors.

As said in one of my daughters childhood movies...."that'll do pig, that'll do!"

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. - Romans 8:28

    It sounds like in the midst of difficulties you were able to be kind to yourself. That is a good thing. Sometimes we just need to let go and let God love us. Praying for you!
