Loving Life Day 54 February 8, 2013

Friday, February 08, 2013

It's already 8:30 am, and I'm still in my jammies. I love days off from work, even if they are jammed packed with plans! Breakfast is done, the first load of laundry is almost ready to go in the dryer, and then I'm off with the doggie for a 4 mile walk. We're expecting a foot of snow today, so I'll get the outside stuff done before the inside stuff. We could be snowed in tomorrow, and there's plenty of time this weekend to do the inside stuff if needed.

I need to do the heavy duty cleaning this weekend. I plan on getting the glass decorations down from above the cupboards, putting them through the dishwasher, and cleaning the tops of the cupboards off. I feel a bit like Santa today, making a list and checking it twice! Dusting, cupboards, light fixtures, move the furniture, throw out or donate the stuff we don't use. That's a bit tough for me to do, I might use that thing that is sitting up there some time, even if I haven't used it in the past 15 years......Time to get moving......

My mantra:

I am the only one who can do this for myself.
I make the choice of what I put in my mouth and what I don't.
I make the choice to exercise or not daily
I make the choice to have a positive frame of mind
I make the choice to be healthy!

Goals for today:
~ 80 oz water
~ 10,000 steps
~ 25 flights of stairs
~ keep an open mind
~ clean house top to bottom
~ laundry
~ grocery list
~ plan menu
~ watch the snow fall
~ journal every bite
~ journal thoughts and feelings surrounding eating today
~ smile at least once an hour
~ learn something new and remember what I learned
~ eat a fruit or vegetable with every meal and snack
~ focus on this lifestyle I have chosen for myself and don't sweat the small stuff

    Way to go--it feels like you get more done when you have a plan.
