I have not been wholly accountable with my eating and food planning the last several days. I feel the difference today. UGH.

I'm wearing a shirt that fits today. You can see my stomach pooch when I sit. I'm self-conscious but not so self-conscious I would change it for a shirt that was swimming on me and camouflaged better. Also, it isn't black. NSV

I am slowly learning the acronyms of SP. I learned NSV yesterday. I'm sure there are others I'm clueless about still. Lol

My day starts better when I get two cups of water in before I leave for work. Yes, it is that simple.

I've been reading up today on protein powder. That will be the next addition to my food world.

I love that SP has articles that mention a growth mindset. That really is an important ingredient of any change. There are YouTube videos on it by Carol Dweck and others. I utilize them in the classes I teach.

I am 49 years old. A childhood friend of mine died yesterday. He is the second to die in the last year from our class. Really gives me pause. It also reminds me that I don't know what the plan is from my Higher Power, but being healthier is part of my plan and can only be beneficial in multiple ways.

Graduations are coming up. My grandson graduates from his science magnet high school in May and two days later my sister-in-law graduates from pharmacy school. So proud!

I miss my family. I live a state away and about 200 miles from everyone. I had hoped to travel to see them soon but car repairs have sidelined my plans. Adulting can be difficult.

I enjoy the things I read here and have a SP tab open for the majority of the day. Thanks to all who are willing to share part of their journey, suggest, guide, lead and encourage. Your time makes all the difference!
