Blog Challenge- Day 20

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

20. What simple step can you take to make yourself happier today?

There are any number of simple steps I take on a daily basis which keep me happy. Walking my dog, eating good food, getting plenty of sleep, reading a good book. All of these combine to keep me feeling happy. I live a pretty simple, low stress life, so as long as I just keep moving forward I am happy. I don't have huge expectations. I am just content with myself and my life. Not a bad place to be.


We had our regular Tuesday morning walking group this morning. We were missing one kid, so we were 9 people and 2 dogs. The dogs were unruly today, barking at each other and trying to play almost the whole time. It was a little frustrating. I walked Cooper 4 times today, for over 7 miles total mileage for the day. It is was cold, with the occasional snowflake falling, so I thought I would be nice to him and keep our walks a little shorter. But boy was he ready to walk this evening!

I am having lunch with my friend, Peter, tomorrow. He wants to go to Applebee's. I should be able to find something okay on their menu. I haven't been there in quite a while, so it will be a change from my usual.

    Expectations can make you feel unresolved if they are unrealistic or wrong for you. It is good to examine them and revise expectations regularly.

    ur doing DAWGGIE TASTIC !!

With Applebees they have a bunch of meals for under 550 and if you eat just 1/2 of the plate,,, which isn't that big, but WILL FILL U UP enough. (ask them to give U a box b4 you start eating,,, thn u will NOt be temped). It'll break it down to 275 cals, which IS reasonable. Try one that comes with THE MOST Freggies you can, and also drink water. Those soda's,, wines, crinks REALLY PACK ON THE CALS !!
