Go ahead


You may not feel particularly inspired, creative, effective or energetic at the moment. Go ahead and give your best effort.  Step over the doubt, the excuses, the hesitation, and step into action.

Weigh Day

Last week: 170.8
This week: 174.8
Loss/Gain: +4

***holy cow! What the heck happened?

I knew I was going overboard on the carbs yesterday,  but I watched them super close the rest of the week.

And I don't know if it makes a difference,  but at the old house I was still weighing 170, and both days I've weighed in this new house were 174. I know the floors are not the same. The old one was linoleum and felt "soft". This one is ceramic tiles and is a lot "harder". Maybe that's the difference??

Little Things


I am:
*packing everything today.
*having weird dreams this week.

Around the house:
*I will have everything packed and ready to go in the morning.
*This will be a busy weekend.
*No cooking today or tomorrow. It will be take out. I hope I don't blow the diet too bad.

Healthy Me:
*I've been doing well counting carbs this week.
*I haven't hit 8k steps yet this week, I have 3 days to get this done twice!
*I weighed 169.8 this morning.

In the craft room:
*It's all boxed up, I'm glad I finished my small early this month.

3 Random Things:
*A rock hit the glass door last night while R was weedeating and it shattered into a million tiny pieces.

*My hair has grown a lot this year.

*Did you know I sort all the clothes in our closet by color?

Little Things


Today is:
National Nude Day
(sorry no photo)
Shark Awareness Day

I am:
*listening to the rain and thunder.
*a little behind on my miles this week.
*loving this week's yoga.

Outside my window:
*thunderstorms, high 87, low 70.
*I didn't sweep the sidewalk after mowing yesterday and now it's a wet mess.

Around the house:
*Christmas is hiding under a blanket because she hates the thunder.
*it's nice to have all the housework done - nothing extra to do today.

In the kitchen:
Thinking I will put chicken and rice soup in the crock pot.

In the craft room:
It's time for July' s sneak peek:

One of my favorite things:
Going to bed early - getting up early.

3 Random Things:
Things I remember from my childhood.
1. Friday night's at the skating rink.
2. My first fish aquarium.
3. Being attacked by a chow.

Today's motivation:
"Fully embrace present reality, whatever it may be. Within it you'll find many opportunities to do truly wonderful things." Ralph Marston

The best part of this week:
Getting back to my routines.

This week's struggle:
Falling behind on my water intake.

Goal review:
This week
1. Deal with every moment as it comes. ☆I did really good with this.
2. Spend time with R. ☆As much as possible.
3. Drink more water. ☆I am drinking more than last week, but not enough to meet my goal.

Next week
1. Finish cross stitch.
2. Count carbs.
3. Pack for my trip to mom's.
