Gratitude, Day 1...

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

This morning I decided in future to focus on the positives in my life via my blogs, so if I was doing it tough, I could read all the positives Sparking has brought into my life. Here goes...

1. This morning I knew I was going to be out of town most of the day, so was out of bed early enough to do a 30 minute exercise session, then take my two dogs for a 20 minute walk before I needed to leave. I even had time to post on the team message boards before breakfast. I am going to try to do this each day.

2. Reason for the out of town trip was to accompany a friend to her post knee-replacement check up. Her doctor was running 'just a few minutes behind schedule', which in reality meant over an hour, so we were advised to go to the coffee shop nearby for a coffee or lunch. Crunch time - what to eat that was meat free and low everything but enjoyment and taste?

I chose the best of the many options available - a pide roll with grilled eggplant, baby spinach, roast pumpkin slices, feta and Moroccan spices. It was absolutely delicious, although rather larger than I'd have eaten had I be home. I ate it all, and instead of a large coffee, I chose a bottle of water. My calorie count was 71 above my maximum allowance, but everything else was within range. I'm learning to make the right choices!

3. Before heading for home, we called into Big W. I managed to fit comfortably into size 16, where a few weeks before was lucky to squeeze into an 18. Celebrated by buying two pair of track pants and two long sleeved t-shirts, the total of which was only $23. No sense in buying more expensive clothing if I can drop another size or two...
