Easter Sunday. A busy day around here, and one that makes me crazy since we hosted dinner for 16 today. It's always a crazy day when we have family over, and today was no exception. My family and hubby's family don't mix well, and today was no exception. Today was a little better than usual, but it's still pretty stressful. Dinner went well, but my sister in law didn't come because she wasn't feeling well and my brother didn't eat anything. It just stinks because it's a lot of work to prepare dinner for that many people, and to have someone not show up and someone show up but not eat just seems off to me. It won't hurt my feelings
if they can't come to dinner. They do brunch with my sister in law's family, so don't say you are coming to dinner at 2 at my house. UGH!
Ok off my soabox. Lunches are made for tomorrow, my clothes are set out for the week, and my lunchtime walking clothes (and backpack) are packed and ready to go. I will get up at 4:30 tomorrow morning to hop on the treadmill, hope to walk during lunch tomorrow, and then go for a run after work. I ran both Friday and yesterday, and boy did it feel good. I've never really been a runner, but yesterday when i got done running, I felt amazingly satisfied.
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:
~ read my mantra
~ 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 stuf
