At the start of My New Year
Friday, January 02, 2015
Here we go folks. Forget the resolutions. We know what we need to do, so let's just do it.
I did good avoiding gluten, until New Year's eve, when I inadvertently had a few crackers with my shrimp. I didn't think about it until later.
I am watching it.
Now to cut out the chocolate. I will appease that one with strictly hot cocoa, until I can lessen that one.
And I intend on cutting the caffeine of coffee as much as possible. I chose herb tea at break today, but then had a mocha at another break. Still, it is cutting back.
I am practicing daily gratefulness, appreciating my blessings with a huge sigh of relief, and looking forward to future adventures. I am grateful I am working, full time, and doing ok. I am getting less sleepy after work. Maybe it was just that I really caught up on sleep over the holidays.
I want to get back to daily exercise besides walking. I have only gotten as far as a few extra stretches every day, that I haven't done in a very long time. Hey, it's a beginning.
Also: goals - writing. I am working on my book(s) - I wrote twenty minutes today during my break and lunch, editing/proofing at my job (and loving my daily work so much, it is a blessing), and aiming to increase my creative activities. These things will improve my happiness and joy, which will improve my health. I am also continuing to aim for better sleep, and definitely better eating. journaling - for allergies, food, symptoms, and have kept track of my supper every day all week in a paper journal, not online at this time.=. Breakfast is a no brainer - always oatmeal, banana, coffee, with cream and sugar.
Not resolutions, because I know what I have to do.
Like a fresh piece of paper.
Or newly fallen snow.
Or the beach when the waves have washed all the gull prints away.
That is the key.
Live in the NOW.
