Back to Basics

Checking in real quick. Yesterday went very well. At work and with my health goals. No drive thrus Drank more water. Walked and biked both. Food was good. Ate too much, but all good for me stuff. I also did some food shopping and some fridge cleaning and feel alot better about what's in there for me to eat. All good things!

I was reading Leslie's blog this morning and could relate to what she was saying about when you make one good for me choice it leads to more good choices. Last week I spent too much time in my sweats. This week I am going to shower and GROOM. I don't wear make up and really spend very little time on my appearance. So it's really isn't a matter of time. I am setting another intention this week to maintain this. I remember when I 1st started to change my life style, getting dressed everyday and taking pride in my appearance was one of the most helpful things I did.

I called yesterday and finally got an eye exam for today. I really got alot done yesterday and it felt really good. While I was walking this morning It dawned on me that I hadn't had 2 days off in a row since the 1st of October. I really needed to just do nothing this past weekend. I think my body was just give out. My back has felt much better and my knee is feeling good too.

It is my Gson's 5th Bday today. He isn't the oldest, but he was our 1st. My daughter was so sure she was going to get a baby. I worried she would get her heart broken. Instead she Adopted Carson and 3 other of the most wonderful ( remember they are my Gkids ) children ever. Those kids really did hit the foster care jackpot. They have parents that really love them. And a GeGe that does too. Happy Birthday Carson! The pic is of him in the new role of big brother. He loves being a big brother!

Going out for alittle celebration tonight with the fam for his Bday. Loaded baked potato. Loaded with good for me stuff. Ok maybe alittle sour cream....but just alittle. Have a great Tuesday. Please say a prayer for those that were effect by Saturday's shootings here in Arizona. There is alot I could say about this fair state and the infighting and bickering that goes on, but then it would spoil my day. Refusing to go there!
Keep the mood and the food real..............


  1. Happy , happy birthday Carson!!! You have the best GeGe in the whole world! Keep smiling girl, keep walking, keep putting one foot in front of the other, every day is a new day and a chance to make it better. Hugs! deb

  2. One good day leads to another, doesn't it? And the good food will eventually reduce it's portion size, I'm sure.

    Have fun celebrating your g-son's birthday!

  3. I know what you mean about grooming - I've had several pajama days over the last few weeks, and it's time to get back to real clothing. With waistbands. Hair, makeup, the whole nine yards - you do feel good when it's done...I'm with you on this! :)

    Yay for no drive thrus! Good job!

    Happy Birthday to Carson - have a good time tonight.

  4. Happy Birthday Carson! What cute little gkids you have :)
