I am grateful that I did not let the scale control my day. Today the scale showed a gain, however, when I went to purchase clothing I was down a size. It was a good feeling to have that NSV to show that the scale is not the only measure of my success.

Being positive is a choice. My Mantra: โ€œEvery day may not be good, but there is something good in every day." Each morning seek the positive and you will have a good day. Always remember, โ€œYour only competition is YOU.โ€

This morning I'm grateful for:

-Cooler temps (yesterday was 92, 100 heat index)
-Stopping on my way to work for a soothing tea with honey (a treat these days)
-Helping our workout facility manager after receiving multiple award e-mails when I should only have gotten three (do honesty and gratitude go hand in hand?)
-Finding out watermelon is on the CSA list for this afternoon - yay!!
-Doing more family history work on ancestry.com trying to help my cousins who's mother is very ill

Rebecca - I'm think the ginger in my jetted tub might be every more special; surely 1/2-cup wouldn't clog anything up ... ???

Among my many appreciations today:
-Choosing to take the day to myself yesterday and stay in the cool of our home
-Waking early enough today for quick paced KJ walk with music and sky full of fanciful cirrus clouds
-Meticulous honesty quickly nixing urge to pick one of hundreds of flowers at Senior home
-Leaving the kitchen sparkling after making myself delicious breakfast
-R bring my sweet chocolate cherry tomatos from house he is dog sitting that would have gone to waste
-Stephanie returning to robust from cold. (My favorite home remedy to banish a cold is a hot bath with a 1/2 cup of powdered ginger, it heats from your core to drive out cold)
