Checking in

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

It's really cold here today, -3 with a wind chill of -27. No walk for me so I'll hop on the elliptical when I get home from my massage and Chiropractic appointments. Today dgd will be here at 4pm but will only stay for a little while since ds started his new job yesterday. No more working until 6pm for him, so this week will be a week of adjustment, a week of timing changes for the time that dgd and I spend together.


I am the only one who can do this for myself.
I make the choice of what I put in my mouth.
I make the choice to exercise daily.
I make the choice to have a positive frame of mind.
I make the choice to be healthy!

And write out my goals for the day-
Goals for today:
~ read my mantra
~ 80 oz water
~ 15,000 steps (20,783 yesterday)
~ 25 flights of stairs (83 flights yesterday)
~ 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 am on a mission to find smaller bowls today for snacks, along with glass bowls instead of plastic for sending to work with dh. I want to clean the cupboard of plastic stuff. I'm tired of all of the covers falling out every time I open the door!

Time to get moving.....

    You are killing me on the steps. I have 40 Fitbit friends and you are always far ahead of me in #1 spot, and I am always far ahead of #3-40! Love your mantra and have printed it out and have it on my bathroom mirror. emoticon

    I too love your goals, and wow, yu are beating those stairs up, I have a 10 flight daily, but seldom get it, I have no steps in my home, so have to go to the gym or mall, to get them, and all of the malls around here have got rid of their steps, not sure why, maybe more room, they all had elevators and escalators, but oh well,
    but, good going sounds like you are doing some de cluttering too, that is my aim this month

    I love the smile goal - It made me smile. I should focus on that more too. Have a great day - it looks like you kicked butt with your steps yesterday! emoticon

    I hear you about the plastic. We've reduced to just a couple of plastic bowls (and lids!) for lunches. Most of the rest of the plastic gets recycled now.
