I know what you mean. The cat meowing pushed me over the edge today.Also, today I am always a little down. I do a lot of remember the events of today and usually anything can make me cry. So today is a lot of just keeping myself together.
Hmmm meal planning and mostly having enough from dinner for lunch the next day. I want to do some more work on this like pre-cooking some meals, popping some pictures and notes to myself on my fridge and bathroom mirror to motivate me.What you you do to set up your environment to make healthy choices easier?
Ugh - I get this - why is that time of day always the hardest!I try to keep busy in the afternoon/evening when my cravings are at their highest
Let's see on Wednesday I was celebrating that I went out to dinner with a friendIt's Woohoo Wednesday, everyone!! - What are you celebrating?
So sorry to hear about the loss in your family - some days just suck.Continuing with the somber theme I got a call from my mother-in-law this morning and her father passed away last night. I am very sad he was such a kind man. We did not expect this at all. I lost my grandfather earlier this year as well so today is a sad and mellow day around here.
haha - I also have trouble with this sometimes - best intentions ...and actually eating the good stuff, instead of letting it rot in my fridge!
Soooo DS15 hiking camp has been postponed phew - fire conditions expected to be bad next week as well and the national park is being closed. They will now do it in week 3 - term 4 which will be in October - which means warmer weather to be hiking in. Took DD to the doctor to get her rechecked as she has been having way too many aura migraines the past 2 weeks - blood test this afternoon - so will go back next week to see if they tell us anything.For Thankful Thursday, lets do a "five senses of thankful" -
something you can see - My garden from my couch, sunrise/sunsets, my children's smiles
something you can hear - My children's laughter and chatter floating down from upstairs, birds singing in the morning/afternoon
something you can taste - Chocolate!
something you can smell - Popcorn!, the star jasmine in bloom on my back fence right now.
something you can touch - hugs with my kids
I love this group. It's part of my morning routine before work. I get up, do my workout, make my shake, say goodbye to husband, son & daughter, then visit this group as part of my quiet time to help focus my day. And it is much needed today as I ended my day upset. Yesterday was a day of last minute changes that really messed me up. As a major planner, changes in plans really mess with me, not only in accomplishing all the items on the schedule, but also mess with my emotional state. I get so upset when I worked really hard to find ways to make everything work and then at the last minute schedules change. I usually plan my week out on Sundays. When I meal plan, I look at the different actives each night and try to pick something that will fit in the allotted time for dinner. So changes in schedule, also mess with my meals. And my husband & kids don't really understand how much thought goes into making everything work. So that always hurts my feelings because I feel like its hard work that goes un-noticed. Then I get emotional and they don't understand why. I realize it's a minor thing compared to the much bigger problems in life. But it just really hit me hard last night. But everything worked out okay, and today is a new day. Today's plans are made, but we'll just have to wait and see how they goWhat's on your mind this morning?
