6 out of 7

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Hello everyone.
Thank you for your support. My mindset is gradually improving. emoticon
I have managed to track my nutrition for 6 days out of 7. That is a great improvement on my recent lack of accountability. emoticon

I will be returning to work on Monday and am looking forward to the challenge of not allowing circumstances at work to affect my positive mindset. emoticon

I have tried to rest as much as possible as well as exercising and some fun time.

Went out to lunch with my neighbour and told myself before I left that I would choose fish and salad. The menu had 3 choices, salt and pepper squid, beer battered Barramundi or Tasmanian Salmon with salad and chips. emoticon

So proud of myself as I chose the squid and salad. It was $15.00, compared to $22 and $25 for the other choices. Also portion size wise it was more than enough for lunch .

We did have a small citrus tart to share with a coffee later in the afternoon. emoticon

Am having a catch up on paper work and start sorting out my wardrobe day tomorrow .

Thursday I am travelling to Bunbury 90 mins away to visit my niece and her children and have lunch somewhere. I will be sticking to my plan of fish and salad and portion control!

My darling son and his girlfriend have been very kind and given me a voucher for a massage, so I may use that on Friday if I can get an appointment. emoticon

I feel very lucky at the moment as there has been a lot of heartache here in Perth as there have once again been awful bushfire's that have destroyed a lot of homes. People are only being allowed back today as it has been too dangerous to return any sooner.

Take care and talk soon. emoticon

    How nice that you were given a voucher for a massage. You so deserve it.

    Hi Libby,
    I'm so glad you are feeling a bit better. I hope all goes well with your return to work - just be gentle with yourself and go slowly. Great job on the food selection, portions and tracking! it;'s great to hear that you had a nice outing with your neighbour - including fun things is very important. Have a wonderful day with your niece, and hopefully having that massage too.
    It is indeed heartbreaking to see the bushfire devastation in the Perth Hills. The extreme weather can be difficult enough without this sort of destruction as well. Praying for those affected and for you as well, Libby.

    Big hugs, Nattacia

    Well done Libby - both the tracking and your food choices.
    Enjoy your massage. You can do this and just remember to
    just ease your way back to work. I am so saddened about
    the loss of houses from the bushfires. The weather patterns
    are changing everywhere and we are being told that there is
    a cyclone forming off the top of Qld. I feel for those tennis
    players also. Stay cool. Have a great Wednesday. emoticon
