Yesterday was a tough day for me. It was the 1st Anniversary of my Mom's death. I'm not sure what I expected, but it was weird. DGD and I went to the library for story time, then met DD for lunch, visited with my Dad for a few minutes, and then came home to wait for our entertainment center delivery. My mom would have enjoyed story time and lunch, as those are 2 things she would have done with my kids when they were little. She was on my mind all day.

Today started out rushed, my alarm didn't go off so I woke up late to go to Weight Watchers. I made it just in time though. Then it was grocery shopping, dropping groceries off to Dad, coming home and putting groceries away. I walked into town to get my nails done (and to get my daily walk in!) and am home now thinking about my sleep study scheduled for tonight. I'm also already missing my little princess who is going to Florida with her Mommy today and will be gone for 2 weeks. That is the longest we have gone without seeing each other since she was born!

I'm getting things prepared for next week, packing and planning as they are going to gut our kitchen on Monday. I don't like chaos, so this is really stressing me out!

But, I need to remember.....


I am the only one who can do this for myself.
I make the choice of what I put in my mouth.
I make the choice to exercise daily.
I make the choice to have a positive frame of mind.
I make the choice to be healthy!

and pay attention to my......

Goals for today:
~ read my mantra
~ 80 oz water
~ 17,000 steps
~ 25 flights of stairs
~ keep an open mind
~ journal every bite
~ smile at least once an hour
~ learn something new and remember what I learned
~ eat a fruit or vegetable with every meal and as one snack today
~ laugh out loud today
~ focus on this lifestyle I have chosen for myself and don't sweat the small stuff
