NINE DAYS AND COUNTING

Saturday, February 09, 2008


I know that I should have been having streaks sooner and this shouldn't excite me so much but I am really proud of the last couple of days. My stress level is about 8 or 9 or scale of 1-10 for the past few days and it is all family oriented. I try very hard to think positive and often tell myself verbally that everything will work itself out. Patience is also not one of my best things, progress is getting made and that should be enough. I get my lack of patience from my mom, I know this because her impatience is what is stressing me out the most lately. I decided after my near collision that I WILL be more aware of my own emotions and not focus what I can not control. This will be a huge step for me but one I must take if I am to reduce stress around here. I worry about everything like it is the only thing. I guess I should start by making myself feel better. I am starting to have stomach problems again and last time I ended up on lots of meds for my ulcers. I do not want those problems again! Focus will be on my nutrition and exercise and then everything else. I am also glad to have gotten my daughter-in-law to join the Sparkpeople program. This is the mom of Madison and Damian the grandbabies on my page. Welcome to SP. Tbear19841! Doing my part to SPREAD THE SPARK!!!!!! I tell everybody!!!!

    Be proud of each day you are given! A few moments I remember today, catching myself hurrying around. I recalled you blog and I immediatley took a deep breath and slowed down. Not so much physically but mentally. My thoughts were going a mile a minute in all directions until I took a deep breath and remembered you =)
