Some Good Choices

Saturday, May 02, 2015

It's been chaotic around here the last few days. We've got a birthday, surprise family visits, performances, intense deadlines, illness, other visitors, meals out...

I haven't eaten flawlessly. I haven't stuck to my plan perfectly. But I have made some good choices for myself, and they are worthy of celebration.
-I had a perfect eating day. Calories, carbs, protein, fat, and fibre, all in the zone.
-I exercised first thing in the morning. (Truth be told, I felt rather feeble. But I did it, and that's what counts)
-I ate half a chocolate bar when the PMS cravings drove me insane. That's right. Half. I could have had more. But I didn't.
-I went to bed on time. I didn't sleep much, but I went to bed.
-I got up on time. Even though I hadn't slept. (Yes, there's a theme here.)
-I drank enough water EVERY day.
-I didn't drink cola. Not even when I got a headache, and wanted it like CRAZY.

I sincerely believe that attitude is everything. And I'm never going to get where I want to go if I only see failure. It's important to celebrate success, even if it's small success. And I made some very good choices in the midst of some challenging circumstances, so I'm going to just go ahead and toot my own horn.

Today's choices may not mean much. But they're going to add up. You just watch and see.

    Well! Look at you go Jellybean! I use to have trouble sleeping as well until I learned to meditate for sleep. it is a very good way to focus your mind. it takes practice. I have been doing it for a year now and have become very good at shutting my mind off so I can sleep. they have numerous guided meditations for sleep on you tube. I tried lots and have picked a few that make me feel just right. give it a shot, maybe it will help with your sleep because without good sleep you are going to wear out real fast. keep up the good work my friend. couple of side questions, you don't have to answer if you don't want. I would like to see you, a real face to put with a name, why no real picture? and how do you post that blog? there has been many times I have just wanted to share and I cant find where to do it. emoticon
