Thoughts for Thursday

Thursday, July 25, 2013

Yesterday was a good day. The weather was perfect, we didn't reach 70! My friend and I took a 4 mile walk during lunch, then I came home and did a 4 mile walk/run. It felt great to run yesterday! My arthritis is under control right now, and running is an option. There are times when running isn't an option so I will take advantage of it when I can.

It's only 49 degrees this morning. I wish I could get out for a walk or run today, but it's Thursday, so that means my Weight Watchers meeting is at noon, and then I have my granddaughter after work. We may walk to the park after she gets here, but we will have to see what the weather is like later. She loves to play at the park, and it's about 1.5 miles away, so she hops in her wagon and we walk to the park. The weather people are saying it's supposed to be in the high 70's later today, which is nice. If we don't get to the park we will go for a bike ride. She loves to ride her bike, and she can ride while I walk in our tract!

I made my podiatrist and eye appointments yesterday and was surprised to get an appointment today with the podiatrist. I'm hoping they can give me a viable solution for my toe that crosses over my other toe, and hoping they don't tell me they have to break the one to and re-set it straight! (that scares me, since I wouldn't be able to go for walks for a little while!)


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:
~ read my mantra
~ 80 oz water
~ 12,000 steps
~ 25 flights of stairs
~ play with my granddaughter after work
~ keep an open mind
~ journal every bite
~ weigh and measure food today
~ 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 as one snack today
~ laugh out loud today
~ focus on this lifestyle I have chosen for myself and don't sweat the small stuff

    I love how your goals are more than just weight-related. They are LIFE related! I love the "smile every hour"; it is a good reminder that there is a lot that is to be appreciated, we just have to recognize it when we see it. Enjoy time with your granddaughter; my only grandchild is 6 months old and 1600 miles away....
