Don't Over Think It

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...............


  1. I really enjoy reading your blog. I too am a food user. It is hard, but like you said "today is a new day". I have exercised, journaled my food for today, and am drinking my water.

    Good luck with the baby shower.

  2. Way better then yesterday :) Sounds lovely Dana.

  3. I definately stress over the little things and need to let it go. And I too used food but unlike you I used "bad" stuff. My tummy is protesting and I've learned a lesson. Those burgers are just not worth it....
    Today is a new day, and tomorrow and the day after and so on...
    Have a great day!

  4. ok, so a little pride in wanting to impress your sisters and do something really nice and sweet for your daughter isn't a bad thing. Just don't stress about it. They would rather have you sane, happy and healthy!

    Food user....yes, that is me!!!!!!!!

  5. Definitely don't stress i'm sure it will be an awesome afternoon!
    2 lbs down that's great! I still stop and assess what i'm doing quite often, i think it keeps us on top of our plan.

  6. I'm a user too.
    Don't stress over the shower/sisters situation - it never helps.

  7. Sounds like you are "spot-on" to me.
    Glad you liked the sunrise.
    I bet it was magnificent.

  8. ahhh family (thats all I shall say on a public forum :))
