It's been a long time since I posted, but I haven't forgotten the basics of my life journey. The winter weather, recovery from surgery and just feeling blah have me choosing not to take long walks outside. I'm looking forward to getting back to that. I need the fresh air and sunshine!

Life has been pretty good, but I am struggling with the mental part of having had cancer. I sometimes still have the why me thoughts, and wonder if they got it all, (even though they think they did), and hope that I live a long and fulfilling life from here on out. It sure changes ones perspective on life when they have had a cancer diagnosis.

I am looking forward to spring, where we can get outside and play every day. The winter has been long, we have 3 feet of snow on the ground, and the high today is supposed to be 7, wind chill will stay below zero, which makes it far too cold to walk outside. I am going to get out a Leslie Sansone Walk Away The Pounds video today, and do that. I'm not thrilled to walk inside, but I have to do it for me.

Today is mu hubby's birthday, and we are having lasagna for dinner. The kids and granddaughter came over last night to celebrate, so tonight it's just the two of us for a relaxed dinner and relaxing evening.

Life is good, enjoy every minute because you never know what that next minute will bring.

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!

Goals for today:
~ read my mantra
~ 80 oz water
~ 12,000 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
