Loving Myself Challenge: Day 5

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

I'm so sleepy guys!

I think I'm going to call it a night pretty early... I'm on call again tomorrow (24 hour shift).

OK, so here we go. :) Today was a VERY productive day for me. I made sure to keep a list and had already checked off my 5 things before 8 am! lol :-D But anyway, I'll try to pick the best ones.

1. I woke up on my FIRST alarm and decided not to keep snoozing for 35 minutes like I sometimes do! emoticon emoticon
2. Because I didn't go back to sleep... I was able to make a DELICIOUS breakfast.
3. I also did an AM workout... Didn't finish the whole thing because I was multi-tasking and had to finish cooking and etc.
4. I got some errands done during work when I had a break!
5. I ate the food I planned to eat today, packed my lunch, and stuck to my plan.

and... I'm having a planned homemade brownie sundae for dessert. :)

OK, Hope you all had a good day! If I weren't so sleepy, I'd write a bunch more... but I'm tired! lol

So I will say, Continue finding the good wherever you can. Even when we mess up we deserve a pat on the back... we are ALL doing the BEST we can (at this given moment)

    MANDELOVICH - I'm sorry to hear about your husband... but you are SUCH a strong woman and I am REALLY proud that you are taking the time to take care of yourself in this tough situation. You are really doing the best thing for HIM and yourself. You can not give what you don't have... give yourself strength and health and you can give it to your hubby as well. I love your 5 things ;-) Let's rock it again today!

    REBBYREB99 you are doing an awesome job!! Way to go on the 4 pound loss AND exercise reward...

    Mandelovich, your strength in what you and your husband are going through inspires me for many reasons. May God bless you both.

    GONABFIT, you inspire me with your determination! Thank you both!

    5 things today:

    Day 15 of consistently filling in my fitness and nutrition diary

    I acted like an adult and wrote a long letter to someone who seems to be disappointed with me and is ignoring me. I am going to continue to write about positive things.

    I talked on the phone for a few hours with a very elderly man from my church who is very lonely and his family has nothing to do with him. I just let him go back in time to happier days. He was so appreciative with someone paying attention to him.

    I got on the scale at 7:30am and lost 4lbs 14 ounces. I did not reward myself with food but got my exercise clothes on and walked my dog, Jake for 5 miles and then did my stair masters for an hour.

    thanks Gonabfit for challenging me to make me be a better person. Sleep well!

    You are doing so well! Good for you!!!

    Today my husband got chemo and it was really rough. I ended my day binging in Sloan Kettering - the stress and fear really got to me.

    But here are five good things...

    I woke early to exercise
    I brought healthy foods with me to take to his treatment
    I walked 15K steps
    I helped my husband through a very scary and difficult day
    I got things ready so I can eat more on track tomorrow.
