22 September 2014

Monday, and while it's not my usual routine as DH surprised me and is working from home, I'm still happily celebrating my successful weekend of eating and living. And especially so, knowing that I not only feel great because of it, but I'm building new healthier habits as well. Each day, and for me, each weekend and travel day in particular which that have been more of a challenge, that I am able to stay my course better establishes that route as the one for me toward good health and happiness. So, yes, happy this girl is!

I've been to early morning workout and have my errands done for the day. As I leave Thurs to go see my son:) -- yes, I'm so excited about that too, I could burst! -- I'm heading up to work shortly. With that accomplished for the week, I have the time I need to finish the other bookkeeping I do from home and get myself packed & organized to travel again. This trip is with DH and we'll be in SC from Thurs night to early Mon morning.

So, I'll get on my way, but not without starting in prayer --

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

And I'll pray, breathe, log, journal, stay curious & express my way through this one day and each one meal, moment, thought, bite & emotion. I'm so very grateful for each of tremendous you, my family & IRL friends, feeling this good, having had a great weekend, staying my course and having the health & wealth to live this life I love… and boy do I today! xoxox

Sun:) and all continues to go well through this weekend of opportunity. My stomach is a little off this morning and was throughout he night, which is perplexing me as I've even eating really well and staying my course with whole foods, no grains, no dairy & no sugar. I snacked on pumpkin seeds yesterday which was different for me, but would they be stomach upsetting?

While I got through without eating, i felt squirrelly much of the afternoon as I did the book work I need to get done before this next trip (I do the books for my BIL who owns a business manufacturing and selling mulch & wood products, the BIL who is currently hospitalized for depression, and 2 self storage businesses that DH and I are partners in). I think I don't like having to work on the weekends, but also don't want to give up some of my "me time" during the week to do so either.

Today, it's gloomy, misting & overcast this morning. DH & I are to golf with 3 other couples this afternoon, and we have a chance of thunderstorms then too, so I'm secretly hoping the ladies will opt to skip the golf & just join for dinner instead. We were also going to bike outdoors, but won't' do that this morning, so I'm off to zumba instead. But to start my day in the best possible way, first I'll pray --

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;

if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

And I'll pray, breathe, log, journal, stay curious, and express my way through this one day, and each one meal, moment, bite, thought & emotion. I'm so very grateful for each of amazing you, my family & IRL friends, getting through the day yesterday unscathed by eating anything unhealthy for me, using the rest of the weekend to stay happy & healthy, and having the health & wealth to live this life I love! xoxox

Sat:) -- feeling good, eating well and all is good in my world!… hope it's the same in yours! I've been to spin class, ran my errands, and on to bookkeeping work next. With all the upcoming travel plans, I have to be extra efficient to not fall behind with work or housework… even if it means weekends. But, you know me, I'll make time to play too!

DH & I went to see BIL yesterday. He had his first ECT treatment and is off all but 1 anti-depressent, and seemed better than he has in awhile. The cocktail of drugs had him so lethargic and sluggish, hopefully this new treatment will work and he'll continue to feel better with each passing day. Then DH & I had a nice date night dinner out at a wonderful farm-to-table restaurant and re-connected after my time away and his busyness at work. We've come a long way in our relationship, but life had gotten in the way again and we've felt more distant again… until last night.

So, if I want to have that time to play, I'd better get on my way and pray --

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

And, I'll continue to pray, breathe, log, journal, stay curious & express my way through this one day and each one meal, moment, bite, thought & emotion. I'm so very grateful for each of wonderful you, my family & IRL friends, another nice day in the northeast, feeling good, and having the health & wealth to live this life I love! xoxox

TGIF! Another week ending and another opportunity to rock this weekend begins. I've had my ups & downs this week, re-entering my world here and getting caught up for the next trip next weekend to see my DS in SC. I can't wait!

ATF has been all good and I'm feeling great even as I look at our calendar ahead which includes 2 more trips in Oct, and 2 in Nov, leading right in tot he holidays… so I'll have plenty of opportunity to practice my mindful, healthy eating skills while traveling, and then through the holidays.

I'm off to play tennis later this morning, then have a haircut & color this afternoon. DH and I are hoping to get out for date night tonight, as long as work allows him to leave at a reasonable hour. We've again hardly seen each other this week, so I was thrilled he asked me out for a date and we'll have a chance to re-connect.

So, off I'll go, but not without starting in prayer --

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;

as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

And through this one day and each one meal, moment, bite, thought & emotion, I'll pray, breathe, log, journal & express my way. I'm so very grateful for each of fabulous you, my family & IRL friends, more beautiful weather in the northeast, a date night invite, and having the health & wealth to live this life I love! xoxox

And the beat goes on, as I return to the routine I love, settling back in at home. Even with the backlog of bookkeeping and household chores, it's good to be home, especially knowing it's only a week before I head with DH to see DS in SC:). So, catching up before I leave and get behind again is the plan for the day, along with a workout & manicure.

I had a great call with my health coach, again recapping the many successes of the past trip and planning for the next, and discussing my plans for mom's future. She, too, agreed thats its best to keep mom where she is for now as she's still thriving there so well. Her DH works & writes about the elderly, including dementia and Alzheimer's patients. He too reinforced that conclusion I'd come to. As he said, whenever I move mom, it will be a huge upheaval to her regardless of her capabilities at the time, and to do so now while she still functions with some independence, could take away the remaining awareness and sociableness that she has.

So, off I go now to that workout, but first I'll pray --

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

And I'll pray, breathe, log, journal, stay curious and express my way through this one day and each one meal, moment, bite, thought & emotion. I'm so very grateful for each of wonderful you, my family & IRL friends, more beautiful weather in the northeast, hot bulletproof coffee, manicures, early workouts and having the health & wealth to live this life I love! xoxox
