Today is a "Good" day . . .

Friday, January 11, 2013

which got me to thinking, why is today so much better than yesterday. Why am I so happy today? Is it waking up and seeing a 1.4 lb loss? That doesn't hurt. Could my weight loss bring me that much happiness today? I hope there is more to it than that. Could it be that I slept for eight hours last night and feel refreshed?

While I was working out at the gym this morning, I thought about how happy I was too. I was looking forward to baking cranberry-almond oatmeal cookies (a Spark recipe) with my girls this afternoon. And when they talked about what they could have for lunch, I gave into their requests for mac n' cheese with broccoli (none for me of course). But the whole day has been like this. There has been no stress, no time-outs (yet) and they are busy with coloring and puzzles as I write this blog. My older daughter is even encouraging my younger daughter on how to put the puzzle together. "Good job, Maddie. You are doing such a good job." So cute.

Could be that my attitude is changing because I am feeling happier about myself and my changes to my habits. Could also be that we had no major plans today. No school. No playdates. Just hanging out and having fun. Sometimes I think that I pack too much into one day. There are so many demands each day. It feels good to take it easy and just do what we want to do without thinking about the "To Do" list.

I feel good and I want to continue to feel like this. I will make it one of my priorities to continue with a "Good" day more often. emoticon

    Thanks for the Goodie. I appreciate the good wishes

    Congrats on the weight loss.

    Love that you had a great day.

    Living one day at a time, I have to always remind myself that even if the day had a bad start, I CAN turn it around if I just look for something to make me happy. Doesn't always work, but that's ok, striving to be happy is a good thing!

    I bet it is a number of reasons, with just the fact of feeling better being high on the list. You are losing weight, having more energy, and seeing that this new lifestyle does work. If you are anything like me, just the fact you found something that works is such a relief. You also are giving your daughters a great lesson. emoticon
