Very exciting day around here getting ready for our kitchen remodel to start tomorrow morning. The kitchen is cleaned out and ready, but I'm not sure I'm ready! I don't really like change, and this is going to be a big change for me. We have lived in this house for 23 years, and haven't done anything with the kitchen until now. The layout isn't going to change too much, but it will be enough of a change to throw me off. They are supposed to be done in 3 weeks, and I hope they are. I am dreading cooking in the basement! We are having work done in the livingroom and one of the bedrooms too, so there are only 2 rooms on the first floor that won't be affected, and one of them is the bathroom - so no cooking there!

I do have a plan though at least for the first week. I have some home made TV dinners in the freezer, and will have some leftovers from tonight's dinner for a couple of days. We are also doing some crockpot cooking, as well as cooking on the grill. Dinner menu is planned for the next 3 weeks, breakfast will be smoothies, lunches are usually salad, so that should be ok.

I got in a 45 minute elliptical workout this morning, then DH and I went for a 4.5 mile walk.


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!

Goals for today:
~ read my mantra
~ 80 oz water
~ 17,000 steps
~ 25 flights of stairs
~ keep an open mind
~ journal every bite
~ 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
