Loving Life Day 55 February 9, 2013

Saturday, February 09, 2013

With a fresh foot of snow on the ground I'm staying home again today. It's so pretty outside, a true winter wonderland. I shoveled the driveway (after it was plowed, so I just cleaned up the sides), sidewalk and steps this morning along with the deck (and some of the back yard so the dog can do her business..the snow is deep enough that she doesn't want to go out there!)

I brought wood in and split it, filled the wood stack in the garage for the fireplace for the week. I'm still working on the house, and cleaning files off of my computer. I have been working on that since yesterday! So far so good.

I may take the doggie for another walk this afternoon. The snow has slowed down, but hasn't stopped yet. I love the snow, I just don't like driving in it. I love playing in it. I made a small snow man yesterday, today the snow is too fluffy to make a snowman. Tomorrow will be fun, my granddaughter will be here for a little while and we will play outside. She loves being pulled around on her sled. She's still a bit small to go sledding at one of the local parks.

Time to get working on the closets.....

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 office closet, linen closets
~ laundry (mostly done)
~ listen to the book on my phone while cleaning (it's a good one!)
~ 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

    You are having a wonderful winter. You really got your workout, too. I know you will enjoy your granddaughter. I am glad to hear that you don't need children around to play outside. We should all let our own child out from time to time.
