Sometimes I cause my own stress. My sisters are coming for a visit the 1st of August. My daughter wants to have her baby shower while they are here. I'm all for that. So why I am resisting? I am over thinking and over worried about this little shin-dig. So what do I do? What I do best. Nothing. It drives my daughter crazy. This will change. Today. The invites will be going out and some food decisions will be made. This doesn't have to be a big deal. I am making it a big deal. I want to do something extra nice cause it's for my kid, but also, my sisters will be here too. Yes, I might want to impress them....pride? Oh yes.
I got on the scales this morning and was down 2 lbs since this weekend. I was happy with that. I am sucking down the water. It's so FREAKING hot here. Both walking buddies bailed on me this morning. I sucked it up and went out and got in almost 4 miles. I was drenched by the time I got home. Listened to some inspirational podcasts. It was a nice start to the day. I like my morning therapy sessions with my buddies, but sometimes like this morning, it was nice to be alone with my thoughts. The sun rise was MAGNIFICENT!! I wish I would have had my camera. I could have shared it with you.
I have been assessing my eating lately. I am using food. There is no doubt about that. I am eating too much. Not bad stuff. Too much of a good thing.....is still too much. I am not sure what's up with the nerves right now. I am in the midst of something hormonal. I can feel that. Plus my tummy problems haven't really gone away. Even though I have been ot the doc and am taking something. I am just going to to continue to do the next right thing. Minimize damage and try to do better. Today is a new day. Just like everyday.
So today I am going to stay in the moment. I have set my intentions. I have gotten a good start and have planned for the rest of the day. How about you??
Keep the mood and the food real...............
