Day 21

Saturday, December 21, 2013

"21. This is a long one. You just spent three weeks reflecting on yourself and your journey to a healthy lifestyle. Write yourself a heartfelt, loving intention to help you reach your goal."

This journey I am on is on-going. Everything I do from when I wake up in the morning until I turn my light off at night is with the intention of improving or maintaining good health.

I start my morning by reading positive intentions before I get out of bed. I have hot water with lemon after I get to the kitchen. I take vitamins (in spite of the statements in the paper this week). I make sure to get some form of exercise sometime during the day, preferably early. I know I am responsible for what I eat and what I choose not to eat.

One of the things that needs improvement is my water-drinking. I am nowhere near the recommended amount. I am, however, working on getting more. Perhaps I don't need 8 cups every day. emoticon

I like to read motivational articles and success stories. When negative thoughts try to sneak in, I find ways to sweep them out.

I am grateful for Spark People and the supportive friends I have. No one of us is or ever will reach perfection but I can work toward being the best that I can be. I am a work in progress.

    Oprah called this 'Living a Conscience Life'... and I think you're doing great at it. Very inspiring, Judy. emoticon emoticon

    You are a beautiful person, in progress or not. I'm glad to be on this journey with you!! I've just started the lemon water every morning-partly to cut back on caffeine. And I'm going to keep taking my vitamins and minerals too, in spite of the news. I don't feel secure that the food we eat today has nearly the same kind of nutrients that food used to have before all the hybridization, pesticides, chemical fertilizers...scary stuff!!
