Today, for sure, came in like a lion and is going out like a lamb. I just COULD NOT fall asleep last night. I was getting so upset, and of course the more upset I got, the less of a chance I had to fall asleep. Sleep finally won by 6am this morning. Yeah, 6am. I managed to get up right before noon. I had it in my head that I was going to have a really bad day. Then I got on Spark Coach and did my "tasks" while having my coffee, including the visualization. My mood started to get better. So I got to thinking, "should I pay for 6 months of the Spark Coach?" I mean, does it really help me? There are still a couple of days left on the free trial before I have to make a final decision. Really though, I probably would have just stewed in my crappy mood had I not did my "tasks." I know, I know…you are all thinking that it's a no brainer, my mind should be made up…maybe it is.
Anyway, as the day went on it only got better. I got my SparkPeople stress ball in the mail…it came with a really cool big wooden die to roll your daily activity along with "you've been sparked" cards…yep, I was motivated.
My hubby suggested that we grill for dinner since it was SO nice out. It was an awesome cookout! I made grilled corn on the cob and chicken kabobs with zucchini and brussel sprouts. I also made a small cucumber salad using a fresh cucumber, 0% greek yogurt, spring onion and garlic…seasoned with some parsley and salt, mixed it up and it was delicious!
It gets better….
After dinner we took a walk together! WHAT!…we sure did! THEN, we came inside and he helped me clean up and load up the dishwasher. I put a load of laundry in, my hubby proceeded to his man cave and I put music on and did some dancing around the living room!
Now I'm winding down, getting things ready for work (11a-11p) tomorrow in the ER. I'll make sure I pack my luck and healthy snacks since I'm there for 12 hours tomorrow.
At the end of the day, I have to say I prefer the lamb to the lion!
