Some surprises

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

I was pleasantly surprised when I realized the bottle I was using for water wasn't 16 oz. but 24. That motivated me to drink up and I got my goal of 48 oz of water for the day.
I smiled when I got an email from a good friend this morning. She offered me empathy for my emotional struggles and offered me some positive inspiration.
I want to find a nutritionist I can speak with and get some sound advice on good nutrition ranges for MY situation.. though I love the sparkpeople nutrition tracker, I feel I need to adjust the ranges to properly reflect my individual needs.
I am still struggling with foot problems. I will go for a second anti-inflammatory injection on Thursday morning
I was happy to go to my chiropractor. Feels good to get an adjustment - not just physically, but I admit there is definitely a mental component to my appointments. Maybe it makes me feel like there is something I can do consistently to help myself, where all I need to do is "show up". Sometimes showing up is all one needs to get going.... I am getting stressed over packing for vacation. We leave for Maine on Friday (morning hopefully!), and I have so many things I want to pack to make this necessarily "laid back" vacation more bearable. It will be exceedingly difficult to keep myself from overdoing it while there- I'm so used to hiking and walking extensively during vacations.... -sigh-

    I know what you mean! Sometimes I get back from a "vacation" more tired than when I started it...I usually like to fit as much in as I possibly can and that means overdoing it for me too. Maine is such a beautiful place (from pictures, I've never been myself) with so much beach & ports. Can you go to the coast and get in some relaxation on a nice beach? I'm not even sure how cold it is there but I'm going to envy your picture taking opportunities for sure!!!

    Above all, be good to yourself and your body & HAVE FUN!

    What a great surprise on the water bottle, eh? emoticon

    Nice surprise on the water bottle..and great job on getting it all in yesterday!! good luck on finding a nutritionist..it is important to get everything together to meet you own personal needs.I have changed a lot of things on my tracker that better suits mine..it can make a big difference.

    Have a great time on vacation..and take it easy..just remember how nice it is to get away and relax.It has been about 5 years since I have been on any kind of vacation..wish you could sneak me along.lol.Well have a great rest of your week too.
