Positive Thinking For The New Year and Beyond

Focus on where you are going...not where you are. Speak life to your circumstances, situations and challenges. Hold the vision of a brilliant future and what you are creating. Challenging circumstances will try to shape and mold you. Stand firm - you will come through this even stronger and more powerful than before.Dedicate your energy to doing positive things that feed your spirit, your soul and your mind. Remember that you hold the key to shape your life and your future. There is power in you to blaze a new trail and to pursue your greatness.
Above is a quote I picked up on FB, thought I would share it with you.

So after work yesterday I wanted pizza and ice cream. I came home famished so i made me a kale/vanilla yogurt & banana protein shake ( delicious BTW) and that craving for junk was gone. We had to go get grocers so I stocked up on veggies for my magic bullet and lean protein. For supper I ate sauteed onions, mushrooms, squash & zucchini with chicken over brown rice. It was good. I felt good after eating it - didn't feel completely stuffed either. I feel good this morning, no guilty feelings after a fattening meal. I even had enough to enjoy for lunch today.
 I'm getting there folks - One day at a time. 

My hubby told me that he will start his workout routine on Monday. Im going to start today after work. I was going to do it this morning but I'd rather enjoy my quiet time with my coffee and computer instead.

I think that once I get going with this new healthy routine it will get easier, I just have to get over the hump and remind myself 'why' im doing this when I feel like falling off the wagon.
 I want to feel better, have more energy and most importantly - feel comfortable in my own skin.

Happy New Years


I've had the past two days off work and its been nice to sit around and catch up with my family. I fell asleep last night around 1am. I know what your thinking...and nope, I wasn't out bringing in the new year at some bar or NYE party, I was in my bed tossing and turning. Just couldn't sleep last night. I had another bad day yesterday...anxiety was up for some reason. Just racing thoughts and I couldn't focus on anything really. I think the whole new years resolution thing as got me on edge.

Anyways. I started watching what I ate last week. I did for the most part, the last three days haven't been great. But my hubby is starting his weight loss journey today too so there will be no junk in the house anymore to temp me.  He's going to bring out the total gym and arrange it in our bedroom in a way that it can be ready to go whenever we want to jump on it.
I took all the Christmas decor yesterday in the living room so I have room for my workout stuff. I plan on working out 3 days a week now. I have a separate old style hand written journal that I'm going to log my workouts in and any thoughts that I may need to jot down.

This year is going to be the year that i make a permanent change in myself. I'm going to start loving myself again.

My next day off work will be Monday ( yes, gotta work through the weekend-yawn). But I'm looking forward to Monday because my next docs appointment is then. I just wish I could come off all the meds im taking. I'm so tired of taking pills.... any thoughts?

Day 3

Good Morning,

Day #3

Its 6:40 an I've got about 10 minutes to blog this morning.

Yesterday was good, I got my walk in before work. At scrambled eggs for breakfast, two high fiber chicken & salsa wraps for lunch and I had one slice of pizza with 2 pcs of cheesy bread for supper. I didn't mean to have that greasy food but I was absolutely worn out from yesterdays work, it was so busy. I also had a bowl of corn flakes with skim milk for a snack.

Today I packed 3 PB crackers & yogurt for breakfast, a ham sandwich on wheat bread, and some kefir for lunch, I will eat a snack when I get home and supper will be a portion of broccoli & chicken alfredo w/ no yolks pasta ( more broccoli than pasta for me). I will have to really watch supper because I love alfredo.  Not sure if I will workout after work...I know I have to do some laundry. Its sunday so Its pretty crazy in the deli on the weekends.

ok. off to start the day :-)

August check-in

Morning, Are you having a good day? I hope you can say 'yes I am' cause I'm always having a good day when I'm not at work....
