AoK:. Resting and watching some movies in between some chores.

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

AoK today - in-house walk for 1/2 hour. And catching up a bit on Spark. Just trying to jog the part of my brain that knows I Matter.

What can I do for myself today?

Still keeping with not stressing. I am working hard though. Things are getting done! The house vibes are definitely better!

Today, I am focusing on going with the flow...doing chores...pacing myself...and not stressing on keeping a strict schedule. I don't need a strict schedule, so I need to relax some. Everything will get done. :)

Yesterday I did a big AoK for myself. On my way home from a depressing meeting with an attorney regarding things to do as my special needs son turns 18, I headed toward a WW meeting. I haven't made it to one for about 4 months, since my son's sleeping schedule pretty much wrecked my ability to get to the morning ones. And, in that 4 months, I'd put back on 12 of the 14 lb I'd lost. So, getting to a meeting was important to me, and was really something I needed and wanted badly. At the start of the journey, my navigation software said I'd make it but miss the first 7 minutes. I thought, that's still respectable. Well, as the journey continued, minutes piled on to the journey counter, one by one, then a big jump by 5 minutes. Until it said I would only have 7 minutes at the end of the meeting.

I stayed positive. I determined that even if I didn't make it to the meeting itself, I could still get there to be weighed.

I knew I had a sitter at home with my son who really wanted me to get back ASAP b/c he wasn't feeling great (the sitter, not my son), but I prioritized me. For a change.

I got to the meeting, indeed with 7 minutes left in it. I had to go to the bathroom quickly, after an hour sitting in traffic with a large bottle of water next to me, who wouldn't before a weigh-in?! So then I weighed in. There was only 5 minutes left in the schedule, and they wouldn't give me credit for attending. But I stayed anyway. I knew that the "credit" I'd receive was that my brain would hear a few journey stories, my brain would realize I was prioritizing myself. And I'd benefit from whatever the wrapup was b/c it would sort of summarize all that I'd missed.

I was right. I left there feeling elated that I'd done that for myself. I Matter.

It did give me the giggles but I assumed you meant Gin and Tonic. My son lived at home for too many years and was on me a lot about using abbreviations. I sometimes thought I was saying one thing and to kids it meant something else. He gave me a sheet of them. You know how they are. At some point you reach an age where you think sic is sick and not cool. I'm past that already. emoticon

It can also be give and take and some other things a little risque, like Gina and Tina which is party and play if you know what that means. LOL.

Yes, Gin & Tonic I'm afraid! Today's AoK was a little more healthy - a quiet half hour watching dragonflies by the pond.

What's a G&T?

My AOK today is to catch up on things that have been eating away at me, even though I have a huge to-do list.

I play a silly online game to de-stress. I used to read, but found that my willpower to stop reading and go to sleep was pretty much nil. One night I was up until 5am reading. I'm weak! LOL

My DAK was so take it slow this morning, not rush into the day.

What a clever prescription Mort! I love to read fiction books set in a different time or place, so I can still learn something. I used to read before going to sleep too Kerry, but somehow I've lost the habit. Perhaps I need to make it a goal too.

Solo "date night" is a great idea, much better than moping at home because your hubby is away. Good one Aaack!

My doctor's goal was to address my out of control sleep problems. I was getting 5-6 hours a night prior to that and I wasn't one to take time for things like reading. Seemed like a luxury I didn't have time for. I deliberately don't read books at night that are stimulating. He gave me a list of things to do to improve my sleep. I had only read non-fiction for years so it was something really different for me. It really does help.

I am so grateful to my doctor for giving me a prescription to read an hour before bedtime every day. It really has changed my life.

I read a whole book yesterday! (The Girl in the Photograph by Kate Riordan) Needless to say, I didn't get much else done but it's a good thing because;
a) I was really tired (hormonal) and the rest was great.
b) I've fallen out of the habit of reading for the last couple of years, and I would like to read more again.

Good job on pushing yourself, Chris. It's not easy when every step is a challenge. I find that unless I do I don't ever get over the fatigue.

I think the times you do something you didn't really want to, can sometimes be really awesome, feel like such an accomplishment. Other times you still feel fatigued. I take those times to mean that I'm under the weather somehow.

I walked awhile with hubby outside the nursing home. He was in the motorized wheelchair.

I really did not feel like walking. But he got mad if I would not go. He said he is stuck inside and needs to get out. Of course, he is right. We saw a bunch of red tailed hawks . What a treat! The weather got a bit cool so we came in and got hot chocolate, The home provides drinks in the lobby.

I brought him a chocolate bunny and some jelly beans. And last week I set up a yellow primrose with a self-watering system.

So--I went for a walk. I knew it was good for me, but I am very fatigued still. I know if I keep walking , things will improve.

I don't know why I don't make more of a habit of doing that, of planning the next day in the evenings. Maybe that should be a new goal for me.

I know why I don't plan food better, because I like the illusion that I can choose based on what I'm in the mood for. But I could still do what I used to do and plan 5-7 meals to choose from, with a few alts, and same with lunches & breakfast, plan several to choose from that are all healthy.

I try but often forget to (in the evening) jot down what I want to get done tomorrow. Instead of wasting an hour or more in the morning, I get at least those things done.

I have realized it's lack of planning more than laziness. I mean that if I have a plan to do something like get out, I'm likely to do it. If not, nope.

I need to get outside more!!!!

I have been walking with hubby on the "trail" near his nursing home. He has it nice--motorized wheelchair. But of course that would not help me get healthier! emoticon

Our condo is a nice place to walk but I have been scouting out some parks around here. I like to be near water and there are plenty of creeks in this area. So what's my problem getting out there? Laziness. Yup! chris emoticon

Soaking up calmness by snuggling with our cat, Cujo. He has been following me everywhere and plopping himself down very close to me. chris

I have to be diligent about caring for myself. 100 DAYS OF WEIGHT LOSS is a great way for me to keep focused. Day 1 is July 1, 2017. Build habits to produce success. Most of these habits I have at least tried before but did not sustain. First habit: delay eating by using a timer.
LONG TERM GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight.Evening Eating Sabotage Myself Frustration ..Help! www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i

I was too tired to fix a big breakfast after doing laundry; hence, I fixed poached eggs with a side of toast with butter and jam.

I do a good job at grocery delivery. Sis put our thick cut pork chops in the crock pot. I will fix a side of ratitouille (sp?) and some buttered parsley potatoes.

I've chosen to allow my streaks to lapse until my life settles back down (blog to come. Tomorrow?) after which I'll start over.

No way, without killing myself, to get even 10K steps today much less my general goal of 12K. Too tired!

Today my AOK was to do nothing related to Hurricane Michael.

I slept late (easy to do when sunrise doesn't come until late), dawdled in the morning before going out for some grocery shopping and we had lunch out at our favorite Mexican restaurant. Did a single load of laundry this afternoon and just piddled the afternoon away. DH did some outdoor work but also took it easy. We've worked hard for two days and need the break.

Forever grateful we aren't facing the destructive mess that face others. I'm considering a blog on my retrospective thoughts regarding the hurricane. I'm afraid it won't go over well with some folks but we all are entitled to our personal thoughts, right?

My act of kindness to myself will be to not push myself too hard today.

My act of kindness today will be to not expect my day to go as planned.. I have a lot to do and may not get it all done.
