Day 1 (again)

Tuesday, June 01, 2021

Good Morning everyone! Today is the first of June and official start of summer for most as Memorial weekend is now over. We were blessed with beautiful weather despite the forecast for rain all weekend long. I was able to enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

On Saturday, our church had a dedication for a solider who died and was buried in 1864 but never had a marked grave. After many, many hours of research by a dear man in our congregation, the grave was located, our local veterans association provided a headstone and a service was conducted to dedicate the stone and share the story of a once forgotten solider. It was beautiful.

Today is a new start of a new month and I am setting new goals for myself.
1) No desserts or treats for 21 days
2) Practice mindful eating (think about each bite rather than eating just because)
3) Love and accept myself

#1 will be the most challenging but last year I did it for the entire season of lent so 21 days should be a breeze. Not really, but I will conquer it. The biggest obstacle is going to be my daughter's birthday on Friday and my son-in-law's birthday on Saturday but I have a plan to politely decline any treats.

I wish everyone a Terrific Tuesday...Happy June to you all!

    I also have to restart the 100 day challenge, as with the 3 boys home, there was no way I could plan anything. But the scale yesterday said I was a pound down, so I will take that. But the last one left an hour ago, so tomorrow I am starting over again.

    It is very beautiful what the church did for the soldier who died in 1864. He deserved to be remembered. Keep on sparking!
