THANK YOU to you all for the support and encouragement. A special thank you goes out to TRAVELGRRL for reminding me to strategize... sometimes all we see are barriers, when we should be looking for solutions. Like the one she offered of getting off the Thruway. (A duh) I should have thought of that. Being hyper focused on getting to my destination and my issues, paralyzed me. TRAVELGRRL's idea was the key that opened the door, eased my stress and helped me overcome my fear. I enjoyed the journey and had no problems.
What a great lesson that I can apply to everyday life. Instead of looking at barriers, brainstorm possible solutions. Sure it is easier to see options for others, I do that all the time. But finding options for myself, being so emotionally invested, clouds my thinking.
The weekend was a bit short on exercise(other than the little bit of chasing and lifting my granddaughter), Mindful selecting and eating was the rule.
I need to be more open. As for now I am energized and ready to travel new paths on my healthy lifestyle journey.
On a side note: My 15 month old granddaughter is now running. In two weeks we will find out if she is having a brother or a sister. My middle son learned that she isn't a baby anymore. He was only a little unruly on the trip, overall not bad behavior, but still can use some improvement.
