Things I did right today (because there is plenty that I didn't do right)

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

I ate a small breakfast (two small pancakes) with a small handful of almonds later.

I have almost finished 2 3/4 bottles of water.

I have only had 3 swallows of soda.

I ate a healthy lunch.

I ate a healthy supper.

I borrowed some healthy food cookbooks from the library.

I took all three kids out in public and we made it through.

I have only eaten about 3 of the chocolate wafers. I am letting my girls enjoy the rest.

I ate only a handful of chips at supper and then put the bag away on a high shelf where I can't see it.

I did a lot of dishes today.

It's hard not to add on to those statements with a "but" or an exception of some kind. Yes, I have made some not-so-good choices today, but looking back through, I made some good ones too. Those are the ones that I need to celebrate. I feel like I'm hanging on to a positive feeling by a thread. It is too easy for me to get depressed. I have to try to keep digging out of this hole. I know the more good choices I make, the better I will feel.

Thinking of my spark friends tonight!

    Focus on the positive. Eliminate the negative. Hey, that sounds like song lyrics or something. LOL. I crack myself up.
    I hope you continue to focus on all the good and not let the bad get you down. Kudos on keeping on trying! I know it is hard to pull yourself out of a depression - in my case, hormones are to blame. I am medicated and hoping for the best.
    Keep us updated.
