This is the only life we ever live, so we have to take care of ourselves as no one else will. We have 87 days left until this year is over, so let's make the most of each day!!! emoticon

RebaMac1959....congratulations on "coming out" on the boards and joining the supportive community that you will find here. You have made some great plans and you are so right when you say you can only control a little bit of the day ahead. Life happens and we have to learn to stay focused on this healthy lifestyle journey and not let ourselves be derailed by things we have no control over. emoticon


If you don't love your body now, you won't love it after you reach your goal!!!

Hi RebaMac1959. emoticon Sounds like you are working up some plans and that is fantastic.

I find tracking really helps keep me on track and I keep some portion controlled snacks around like Bellydog suggested. When you are tired, it's much harder to remember to go for the healthier choices. Especially if you haven't eaten.

Alady2be, you make an excellent point. I am finding everything a bit easier now that I'm trying to focus on the positive instead of the negative.

Keep a few portion controlled snacks in your desk for those all nighter situations. Don't keep spare change for the vending machines, unless they have healthy choices. If possible, plan ahead.

We each engage in possibility thinking. Stress usually involves focus on negative possibilities. To feel better, let's engage in positive possibility thinking. Let's strive to see ourselves, our family, our neighbors, our co-workers, etc. in the best possible light. Should some other possibility present itself, let's cross that bridge when we get to it. Take care of you by protecting your mind and being from a lot of negative thinking.

I've lurking for a bit and have now decided its time to 'come out'.
I restarted logging my food last week and have done pretty good until yesterday. I let myself get really overtired (pulled an all nighter at work Monday nite) and I totally lost control. Back on track today, logging and exercise.
Its funny how you have those aha moments and you finally listen. I realize now I really have to listen to my body and take those hints, signs and run with them. I can't always run or deny the stress, its a part of my life, but I can sure learn how to deal with it all when I know those days are going to be that way.
Today I am journaling my eats and exercise
I have a nutrition class at noon I can't wait to go to
Exercise is Curves & Zumba
Oh and my big stressor, work.
On the bright side, having my go juice this morning ... Coffee. Wrapping my head around the day ahead and knowing life is good but I can only control a little bit of what is in the day ahead.
Have a great day all emoticon
