Think It Over

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

We had about 4-6 inches of snow this morning, so I didn't go for a walk, instead I shoveled the driveway. I was going to do an exercise DVD later on, but forgot. I didn't go to the gym. I am trying to rest a little since I have achilles tendonitis.

Regarding the treadmill, I am looking on Craig's list and probably will be checking out garage sales too. I want to make sure to get a good one for the right price.

Today I worked on planning out 4 quilts to make for an African girls home. I am not sure when they need to be done. My sister told me last week they needed some more. I also finished quilting one baby quilt. Now I just need to bind it.

I also started reading Made to Crave again. The quote for the day...
" 'Think it over' I wonder how many choices and severe consequences could have been averted if that three-word statement had been applied."

I applied that today. I wanted so much to eat nutella, but I thought it over and didn't. I knew that wasn't part of my nutrition plan. Which by the way, I have been back to following again since yesterday. I don't know if that has made a difference, but I haven't been tired during the day the last couple of days. I've been limiting sugar carbs. Instead it has been protein and whole grains.

Daily Goals:
1) Blog -- emoticon
2) Exercise at least 50 minutes. emoticon 15 min
3) Eat at least 5 freggies a day emoticon 5 servings
4) Instead of eating something unhealthy today, I will.. Think it over

    Protein and whole grains! Good for you! I haven't let myself buy Nutella. Am sure I could go crazy with it "pretending" it's healthy. Hope you can find a good replacement treadmill. How's your heel feeling? Hope the rest is doing it good!

    Sounds like you're on a good track. Love seeing photos of the quilts, so hopefully once you're done with the new ones you'll post pics.

    emoticon Just 3 simple words that make so much more sense. I'm going to try to go with that too. It'll probably make things easier, actually stopping and thinking before your eat or do something.
