I was feeling a little squishy and weak yesterday. Instead of waiting until after New Years, I got busy doing some strength training. Took a long walk today, and will do some upper body ST later, as well.

Took a few minutes to meditate before paying bills.

My sister-in-law is stopping by today, and we don't usually exchange gifts, but I decided to make her some caramel corn this morning. Took my time, turned on the holiday lights, and enjoyed the process. Didn't nibble one little bit.

Thanks, Peggy! Way to go on not eating beyond your calories. I've been a bit lax in that area, but I've eaten way less than I've been offered.

Last night, I was making caramel corn as a treat for my husband. Instead of dipping in, I had an apple to get me by until dinner.

I did NOT eat the cookies one of my students gave me. I will give them to my husband when I get home. I've had WAY too much sugar over the last few days.

I am trying to meditate and watch a short teaching of Eckhart's, EVERY day before I come to SP or go on FB. You know how you can get lost at either place!! :)

I did this, successfully, today. emoticon

Thanks, Peggy, and thanks for joining in!

Instead of mentally reviewing my to-do list for today, I remembered to eat my breakfast mindfully. It was much more satisfying.

Now I just need to do that every time I eat!

I really like this thread, Karbie. :) Thanks for starting it.

When plugging in the tea kettle, I got a bit 'choked' because it needed to be filled. Then, I got 'present' and realized how ridiculous my ego was being. lol I can't wait until the day that this happens automatically. emoticon emoticon

I realized as I fastened my coat this morning that it took me two years to release enough weight to get into it, and now I was wearing several layers, including a light jacket, under it. Go me!!

I calmed my monkey mind, and was able to remain present in the middle of a chaotic workday. Go me!
