Being Proactive

Sunday, December 04, 2016

I realized today that I am in a better place. Things still have not totally worked out, but I feel more capable of taking care of business. I am grateful for so much today.

Yesterday we brought my aunt over. My Uncle passed shortly after we moved out here this summer and I know it has been very hard for her. I was amazed at my little ones. They made her feel like a queen, calling her grandma and just loving on her. When things get tough, it is nice to take a step back and see the beauty. When my son kissed her goodbye, I was shocked. He has never even kissed me goodbye (he is autistic). I can imagine my Uncle was smiling from afar.

I have been thinking about my health journey. I had a big setback this week. We changed the batteries in my scale and there seems to be a five pound difference, not in my favor. I put my daughter on the scale (Aria) and it is reading her weight correctly, so I adjusted my weight and it is up. I am okay with this though because I am getting ready to begin a challenge, working out again, and eating much better. I had a very big paradigm shift last week and I am still moving forward. I am going to do whatever I can to keep moving forward and I have some ideas. I am not ready to quit sugar all together, but I am ready to keep working out. I am tracking, showing up and present. It is a good start.

    So many changes in your life...l think you're doing well to only have gained 5 pounds. Especially when the scales were incorrect. And remember some of that could be normal fluctuation. You've got this! Keep on Sparking!
