madaboutmoose's Journal, 22 January 2013

It's Tuesday. Already!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my three days off work. We got our new batteries hooked up, went to see Broken City, enjoyed a couple meals out, and generally had a good time. Today it is back to reality. More stringent focus on eating/juicing, back to basics.

It has been very cold here and I'm looking forward to the temps rising a bit in the next few days. Sounds like we may have some snow in the forecast as well. I'm rather tired of being cold all the time and while I'd rather be too cold than too hot I do find myself fantisizing about being on the beach someplace tropical!!

I've had one cancellation today, my first appointment so only have one family to visit today. The plan is to get caught up on paperwork and then to work on a training that I'm presenting for staff on February 26th. I enjoy training ... even though as it gets closer I will wonder why I said I would do it ... always feel anxious when the date gets closer!!

Grateful today for ...

Batteries that hold a charge!
A car that starts even when we have single digits!
Time with my DH!

I feel I've been a little too loose with my eating so this week I will trim the snacking. I eat more when DH is around!! However, the journey continues and I continue to work on being kind to myself, no regrets, no beating up no myself, simply putting one foot in front of the other and carrying on. Have a good day!


Hi Carol, glad you enjoyed your 3 day week-end and yes now its back to basics. Thanks for your encouragement on my journal too. I know the funk will pass, most of what I'm in a funk about is beyond my control, which I loathe. I like to be in control - lol. Food is better and that helps because eating 'bad' makes me physically and mentally feel not at my best. Yesterday passed (as it always does). Today is a new day.

Hi Carol, So glad to read your last paragraph in particular. You have been consistant in NOT getting stressed out about your weight for quite some time now and i think you are happier because of it. Happy you love presenting your training programme. It was good you and hubby made the most of our weekend together. much love Sazy xx

Carol, you do sound like a lady in a good place. Tonight I made it home from work before 9:00 p.m. I'm grateful. Time is precious in my world. Evening meetings kill me .... because it's usually on top of an 8 hour day. These old batteries in my soul don't take a "charge" like they used to.
