Crazy weeks

Friday, May 17, 2013

Yesterday I did get to log in, then couldn't get back on SP due to their technical difficulties. The last few weeks have been hectic. But...

I have been maintaining healthy eating choices (except for my choice of banana split for mother's day lunch - but it was my choice, and I am fine with that).

I have been walking more, especially now that my pedometer is telling me what is happening. (Yes, I long for a fitbit... maybe one day).

I have been driving and withstanding more with my back, mostly.

I have been keeping a positive attitude.

I have been writing and thinking creatively.

I have been happy, and show it. I have visited friends, and given real hugs. The kind that let you know I really do miss you and care for you.

I am learning new things every day about lots of different topics - the Revolutionary War, grapeseed oil, food additives that shouldn't be there.

One of the best things about deciding not to eat wheat (whenever I can help it), is the ability to look a brownie in the face and say no. It hasn't helped me lose any weight yet, but it has helped with self control. At luncheons and the like, I reach for the fruit. the yogurt. the almonds. Those are healthy choices.

I know that healthy choices will eventually count for something. I am going in the right direction.

Getting healthy IS my job.

Have a lovely weekend Sparklers!

My summer lap blanket afghan I made for me last week out of bamboo yarn - it is cool and soothing when my skin and nerves hurt. Perfect for summer.

This is the note I wrote to myself and put on my bathroom mirror. The top part is what I wrote. Then my sweet husband saw it and wrote the second sentence. I am blessed to be sure.
