Day 5:) ODAAT! I'm feeling great, back on track & especially so going into vacation on my healthy eating & living highway! Of course, it doesn't hurt that I weighed in still at goal, after putting it off all week -- while I know that I'm more than any number on any scale, I still especially feel good that I'm going into vacation at a good point for me. While away, my goal is to stay gluten, lactose & added sugar free and to eat mindfully while enjoying myself and my family. I have worked hard on this highway I'm building and with many successes along the way, have a steady work crew in place with all the right tools -- they're packed to go with me! I'll check in here when I can because as I found from being away, journaling & your support is priceless! And through it all, I'll stay curious, take time for me & be good to myself!

I'm off to workout next & do those last necessary errands before the packing starts this afternoon, 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, journal & express my way on this one day and through each one meal, moment, bite, thought & emotion along the way. I'm so very grateful for each of spectacular you, my family & IRL friends, a fun & relaxing trip ahead, a repaired A/C and cool home again, and having the health & wealth to live this life I love! xoxox

Day 4:), one day at a time (ODAAT)! Oh dat… oh that… I'm hoping that will help me to remember to breathe through the stress & anxiety of traveling and the long to-do list that awaits my return. I'm feeling great though, back on track and staying my course gluten, lactose & added sugar free.

I've been to my workout already, meditated and have house & book work to do until my hair cut & color this afternoon. The A/C repairmen has been here (we've been without upstairs since the weekend) & was to return with a needed new fan -- he'd better! And we're doing some household repairs which started today with replacing all our interior doors. So, workers in and about for awhile -- much needed, but still an inconvenience.

But before I get any farther, 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, for this one day and each one meal, moment, bite, thought & emotion, I'll pray, breathe, journal & express my way through. I'm so grateful for each of incredible you and our special place here, my family & IRL friends, pampering (mani/pedi yesterday & hair maintenance today), this return to calm and hopefully cool soon and collected, and having the health and wealth to live this life I love! xoxox

Day 3:), one at a time! I'm feeling good, plugging along, getting ready for our vaca, party prep & my son's move. We're headed to Destin, FL on Sat for a week with DH's 2 sisters & their families. We've traveled together before and all get along great, and I'm especially thrilled to have this time with both my sons before my youngest heads to SC at the end of the month. We'll stay in one big house, but DH & I have our own bedroom & bath. I'm a little concerned about all the sugar that I know my SILs will have in the house, but will cross that bridge when it comes one day or temptation at a time. I'm feeling great again on my sugar free highway so will do my best to stay on course and stay curious throughout. I'll focus instead on having fun, relaxing & enjoying the family time!

and on this one day, I've been to my workout & have a mani/pedi this afternoon, with housework next in between. 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, journal & express my way through this one day and each one meal, moment, bite, thought & emotion. I'm so grateful for each of awesome you, our special place here, my family & IRL friends, a sure-to-be fun filled vacation ahead, and having the health & wealth to live this life I love! xoxox

Day 2, one day at a time! I'm focusing on what's worked for me in the past, and getting back to it and away from the craziness that life can bring… keeping what works and discarding the rest… what any good lab rat does, right?

For me, that's eating mindfully; gluten, lactose & added sugar free; journaling, meditating, & exercising each day; one at a time, while banking my accomplishments through counting the days, and not beating myself up for those I choose unwisely on and to not count. it sounds so easy, and again, for me, it is when I'm in my day-to-day weekday routine, but when I leave the comfort of this routine that I love, it can sometimes go astray. So, I'll focus on those times as they come and relax, pray, breathe & stay curious through them.

Today, I'm off to tennis this morning, then furniture shopping with DS & some vaca shopping for me after. But, first I'll start 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 for this one day and each one meal, moment, bite, thought & emotion, I'll pray, breathe, journal and express my way. I'm so grateful for each of extra special you and our special place here where you've all welcomed me back with open hearts (can't thank you enough!), my family & IRL friends, and having the health & wealth to live this life I love! xoxox

That's it! I cannot do it alone! I need & miss you all too much! So, I'm back and determined to journal here again daily, even if its short & sweet (or not so sweet… or not so short!) as I need it for my own personal mental health. I've slowly gotten away from the things that keep me on my healthy eating & living roadway, and it's time to get back on the right track. So, it's again for me Day 1 gluten, lactose & added sugar free, eaten mindfully with intention & attention.

Life has been busy and it will be for the next month still. I got back this past Weds from securing an apartment with DS who is moving to Greenville, SC. We leave for a weeklong vacation with DH's 2 sisters & their families on Sat. Then, after DS's graduation party on 7/25, he and DH drive his car to SC so he can start work on 7/28. His apartment doesn't become available until 8/4, so I fly down to help him furnish & stock it and return on 8/7. Then, life gets back to normal, after the letdown of his going. My other son will still be here at home as he continues working & finishing his degree, which both are going really well. Mom is hanging in there and her mixing up of days & nights seem to be much better after getting her a large, visible digital clock and her doctor changing some of her meds. And, DH & I are doing well and doing our best to stay connected and make "us time" too.

Having filed you in on what you're in for if you join me on the ride, it's back to one day at a time, which even though it's midday, I'll get onto 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 remember again to pray, breathe, journal, and express my way through this one day and each one meal, moment, bite, thought & emotion. I am so, so, so grateful for each of you, my family & IRL friends, our special and safe place here which returning too means so much to me, and having the health & wealth to live this life I love… busyness and all! xoxox
