I took healthy snacks with me to work, my tea bags and I managed to keep my "chip" intake to a minimum even with bags of chips in our department for our "chip tasting" day!

Are you having trouble sticking with your healthy living plan? Today is the day to WRAP your head AROUND IT.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For me, I have been off my nutrition & exercise plans as I set them up for the 5% Summer Challenge. Today I will get my head wrapped around them and start following them again. I ned to make them a habit before the 5% Fall Challenge begins in a week or two.

Got in 15 minutes of exercise this morning.
Taking yogurt for lunch and a smaller one for a snack.
Planning to make black beans & rice soft taco for dinner, with pineapple salsa & avocado...maybe a half slice of cheese since I will be low on protein today.

Is there something you plan to do to reach a goal and you just can't seem to get it done? Wrap your head around it today...Give it some thought and come up with a way to do it so that it no longer is an obstacle.

For me it is the Fill-a-meter challenge. It gives me that visual reminder each day that I need to accomplish the days goals.

hugs,
Wanda

For me it is finding time to sit and relax. My October work schedule can be a nightmare with 3 days off and 35 Hope Bus events in 31 days, and teaching classes at companies & schools on the days the RV is not on the road. Before this day ends, I will have figured out how to carve at least 30 minutes a day out of that schedule to do something I love doing - like reading, meditating, etc.

For me it is how easily my Dr nurse dismissed me, causing me further problems. My Dr was not too happy with her behavior either

Thank you, both. I will now hear celebrities saying "I am just happy to be nominated" very differently than in the past.

Did get it done...Now I have to get it express mailed!

What behavior, task, or thing can you not wrap your head around? Spend time today to figure it out.

Going off track too many times, why do I keep doing this to myself and what can I do to change this unhealthy habit. This is something I will be working on seriously.

Adding my congratulations on your nomination.

Hugs,

Mauri...this is a good one to think on. PS...congratulations on the nomination.

For me..it is how easily my doctor dismissed my problem with my knee as being "just" arthritis without doing any kind of tests. I rarely go to a doctor unless it is something,in my mind, serious. It's been over a year since I've been to the doctor. I need to stop allowing others to dismiss what I am telling them. Yep...so figuring out to be done today for me.

For me it is a statement on what I think compassionate care means for an award for which I have been nominated. Hmmmm...

Are there times you can't wrap your head around something - not understanding how something happens, behaviors, or having a task you can't seem to get done? Today is the day to figure it out.

For me it is writing a statement on what I believe is compassionate care for an award for which I am nominated. Having a tough time wrapping my head around this...how to define it???

I'm having another "wrap around" moment today. It is wrapping my head around these amazing journey mates on this team...and the blessings that I receive as a result! Ah, yes...now I get it...BLESSINGS...for which I am so grateful!

Mauri...I love this challenge...way to go my friend.

I'm not sure where to actually start with this one. I work so hard at maintaining a positive attitude and attempting to see the blessings in my day. Then you get someone that just walks by and tries to rain on your parade because you prefer to see the positives. All I can say is emoticon . You might rain for awhile on my parade, but at the end of the day...I get to count my blessings and you just get to be negative!!! I'm attempting to wrap my mind around people who just prefer to live under a dark cloud. There are lots of reasons that they might have for feeling the way they do, but it still boils down to ...it's their choice.

hugs,
Wanda

Mauri you were that lady's angel this morning. Most people are too much in a hurry and to wrapped up in themselves to get involved. Bless you for the caring, sensitive person you are, God put you right where He needed you this morning in order to help that dear lady out.

Hugs,

Funny that you should pick this challenge today. I woke up deciding that my best course of action today was to deliberately NOT try to wrap my head around my concern. Just move forward and act as if it never happened.
I ate too much last night. Binged that is. I believe I know why it happened. It was triggered by a unsuccessful trip to the hairdresser (bad haircut), a strange phone call from my Navy son, a day that felt like I was spinning my wheels, a dirty kitchen and no energy. . . in short a slide into stickin' thinkin' (negativity). I have wrapped my head around the why. I can not prevent what happened in the past, so now rather than waste any more time and energy on it I will move forward with today's plan. If I keep trying to wrap my head around it, it will negatively affect my "performance" today. So my action is to forgive myself and move on. I stepped on the scale and it is right where I left it yesterday morning. I've been giving a reprieve or stay. So. . .
Nancy, I forgive you and I look forward to making those healthy choices that give you life today.
Head is sufficiently wrapped around like a turban (which I can use to hide my unflattering hairdo. win/win) and I'm back in a positive place.
Thanks Mauri.

Are there events in life when you say, "I can't wrap my head around it?"

Choose one of those events/thoughts/feelings and spend time today to wrap around it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For me it was the elderly woman who fell while doing her daily walk this morning and watching cars drive past her...not stopping. I stopped, called her daughter, and waited until her daughter arrived...It did make me a few minutes late for work but not enough to leave this woman unattended.

I am trying to wrap my head around why no one stopped to help.
