I missed blogging the last couple days. I've been quilting at my aunt's and been tired. Sounds funny to say I'm tired from just sitting and quilting. I have been getting my walking in every morning and making sure I'm spiritually filled before I'm physically filled.

I sure talk to myself a lot these days. Making sure I understand the consequences if I chose to satisfy my WANTS instead of my NEEDS. I thought of how much arguing I do trying to justify not exercising. My friends instill in me the humorous side of this conversation and the thoughts come to mind "In the time you have spent trying to justify your actions and flipping back and forth, you could have already accomplished your twenty minutes of activity for the day." I already know the benefits of taking that walk whether on the treadmill or outside. It's easier now. I'm not as winded. Gauging loss of weight is more than the number on my scale. The jeans and shorts I wear are more comfortable. My energy level is better. I am becoming more conscious of eating until I reach a satisfied level and not having overeaten. Those feelings are something that takes time to become comfortable. Everyday has it's temptations. One ot the things I realize is I am the one who decides what that day will bring. It is so easy to blame my own weaknesses on someone else or the situation thinking after this day or this situation or celebration the excuses are endless. No one has twisted my arm to consume extra food if I tell them I'm full. I am not the center of the universe. What a bubble buster. LOL

I woke up to the sound of rain. I love days like this.............wouldn't want it all the time but occasionally I enjoy them. We work the fish fries again tonight. That will be two down and only four more to go. I'm still playing with my embroidery machine. I am so blessed in so many areas of my life.
