I am starting to eat mindfully -- eating intuitively and without distractions. What am I hungry for? Really tasting my food. Being where I am -- not doing one thing while thinking of something else.

I have been doing this for several days and the scale indicates that it is working.

emoticon Roberta! That is good news indeed.

My good intentions today----
As I pass through each room on my indoor walking program-I look to see what I can do to improve things. So when I see something amiss I correct one thing-one room at a time as I go along. Breaks up the boredom and tidy things up at the same time. Today I reached over 6000 steps indoors. I enjoy seeing the final steps posted on my computer . Great motivator.:)

I am slowly recovering from my last food binge. As of today my weight is two pounds shy of the goal indicator on my weight tracker. That is good to see. How hard it has been to bounce back. Remembering that is a good motivator for passing up the NO-NOs at the grocery store!

Re sleep, I went back to what worked in years past -- put on "rain" CDs (3) to play all night, put the TV on sleep timer, and went sound to sleep. What a blessing to sleep eight hours, even with two short interruptions.

Awoke this morning to freezing temperatures. Quickly put out a fresh warm sugar water feeder for the hummers. They love the warm drink and will sit there a long time just drinking it in and observing their world. What a joy to watch them. The Annas stay here year 'round.
Here's to an enjoyable and successful day to all of us. Be happy. emoticon Roberta

We slept .better last night too.!

When our Prescious dog whined to be taken out of her cage to go out side around 1:00 AM or so -instead of taking her- like I normally do- I said "NO" Firmly . And DH repeated it.

Guess what-She never said another word all night and she didn't get up TIL we did this morning.:)

My intentions from now on is for me to be in charge ! DUH!

Sounds like you have joined a great group .Please keep us posted as to how it go 's for you.

I get plenty of sleep except for my nightly trip to let our "Precious" out of her cage once or sometimes twice a night to go outside. I just use it as my potty run.

For the blinders in the grocery store, stay out of tempting areas.

Pat
With my being housebound for the most part with DH, I like your idea to lower number of steps to 3000. I know you have done more at times, me, very rarely. Maybe 3000 will be a doable challenge for me at this time.

It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew."

My scale was up quarter pound this morning. I was happy about that after pigging out yesterday. Have to be careful about leftovers now!
One thing I INTEND to do is workout 30 minutes a day from now on. I just have to set my priorities for this.

I hope the Activity Tracker will keep me focused on what I need to do. Had a scary early morning (3:00am) and day with spiking BP. Got rid of all the sweets and processed foods this afternoon. Felt weak and shaky earlier, but spent the day reviewing on what I needed to do to get back on track. Anyone know where I can find some horse's blinders to wear the next time I visit the grocery store?! emoticon Roberta

Pat, I did not order the Tracker--I just looked at the thing. The only thing I would track now is exercise and/or steps. I do not know why that icon is there saying I ordered it. Puzzlement. Puzzlement,

The only thing I would track are my exercise and steps. I am not tracking food or water. Is exercise the only thing you track?

The activity tracker is working just fine, thanks to DD who set it up for me . I could never have done that myself. Although I tried. It is fun to see the activity bars appear hourly on my activity page . I am still working on 3000 steps daily as my goal which sounds like nothing to young folks-DD gets 12000 sometimes-but for me this is fine. Just so I don't become chair bound and not able to move at all. So far I have been able to add more steps daily by getting on the Elliptical.
How about you?
Hugs, Par

The recent power outage made me aware that I was not prepared for emergencies, so as of today, all battery-operated electronics are on constant charge or currently charged. I am getting food, water, meds/supplements, and other household supplies to last at least a week. Need foods that do not need refrigeration or cooking, and of course water for drinking and household use. Keeping housekeeping chores updated, too. I have been stranded for a full week several times, unable to get out of my apartment due to icy parking lot and/or streets. No power to do laundry, cook, wash dishes, and no heat, etc.

So, dear friends, keep your cell phone charged and on your person during the day and in your purse next to your bed or on your night stand at night. Keep emergency flashlights charged up, too, and plenty of healthful foods and water handy. We never know what Old Man Winter has in store for us.
Hugs, Roberta

Good for you,REE! Take very good care of that wonderful person -YOU!
I am so glad you slept well. That alone can help to make it a very good day. Deep breathing and stretching may help too.

I am excited about tracking my steps tomorrow on my new " sparks fitness tracker". DD came over and helped me get it set up so now when I wear it it will record my activities right on my I-pad. I hope it will be a real motivator for me to take extra steps daily!

Glad to see you back, REE! You will really enjoy planning your meals ahead. I try to buy ingredients to one new healthy recipe at a time and make enough to freeze a few servings for later. This week I made a full recipe of Minestrone soup and Froze several servings. Tomorrow I will pick ingredients for the next recipe.

My good intentions today was to start cleaning my kitchen drawers. Glad to report I got two emptied, and cleaned and everything put back neatly. I intend to continue til kitchen is done before tackling the bedroom.

Hi team sorry not to be visiting In a a while I saw this good intentions thread and liked it, I have be feeling down then beating myself up for not always being patient with my dh. Also also been doing comfort eating lately, I can't say it makes me feel any better , so my good intention is to cut out comfort eating, and to plan and prepare meals in advance , yesterday I made leek and potato soup in the slow cooker, very tasty, there is enough for several portions , that should last me a few days it's getting soupy weather now, Enjoy your weekend , Irene
