Thanks for all the ideas and kind words. I’m feeling better! Tough decision behind me, finished something I was dreading, and got my kitchen almost clean! Haha, I’ll finish the kitchen tonight and start on the laundry (don’t you just hate laundry!). So, some of the emotional pressure has been released. I took your advice and played some good music all day, did some deep breathing, got in some activity, and went to a luau for Relief Society (for those not of my faith, that is what we call the women in our church collectively) last night. Spent some time with a good friend, and made some new friends.
And last but not least, I recommitted myself. I went grocery shopping and got some really tasty healthy meals that I will want to make. I find that when there is fresh yummy food, in my cleaned out fridge and kitchen, I do much better! Duh!! Doesn’t that make sense!! Haha, sometimes I’m a slow learner. If you are lucky enough to have a Harmon’s around you, go!! They have their berries on sale, 5 containers for $10. And they are gorgeous! You can get raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. YUM!!! (It might end today, so you need to hurry!!)
Part of the recommitting myself is in actually tracking what I’m eating, and why I’m eating it. I have not been very good about doing that for the last month or so. I track in my head and still count points. But we all know that when you do that, things slip through. So, I got out my little tracker this morning and I plan to have it out all day!
The other thing I am recommitting myself to is daily prayer on my knees. This will be challenging, as my knees have been hurting and so tight lately. But, I feel like I will be blessed for the extra time conversing with Heavenly Father. There is a lot going on right now, and I need those blessings. I know that’s pretty personal, but… if I say it out loud (or type it as the case may be), I am more likely to follow through with it. :D
I don’t think I’m going to see a loss tomorrow, but, I’m okay with that. I actually had a really good week exercise wise, and I can feel and see shifts in my body. And that is what really matters. Today is a new day, with no mistakes in it!
So I’m going to make a post of all my favorite songs for you, all the songs I listen to when I need to get pumped up and feel better. I hope to do that this weekend!
Smaller Fun Pants – if you’re reading this, I haven’t forgotten about you! I have been working on some of the things you mentioned, and figuring out how to do some of them. I’ll be in touch really soon! :D
Sorry, this post is all over the place. Thanks for all the support and encouragement everyone offers. I have not had time lately to read all my favorite blogs as often as I want, and that makes me sad. I love being a part of your lives, feeling your strength, and learning from you! I’m hoping to get caught up this weekend. I steal a couple minutes when I can to read, but haven’t had a ton of time to leave comments. Please know that I’m there, supporting you in the wings.
Have a great day everyone!!
