I am working on having a greater awareness of gratitude, and today I am grateful for my crock pot. Yes, seriously. My crock pot made it possible for me to come home from work and go out walking with my sister. It was a beautiful day and the walk was challenging but I felt good:
I came home had some delicious stew, and instead of having it over egg noodles I substituted spaghetti squash. I was a little leery because the last time I prepared that it wasn’t that great. Well, it must have been the freshness or how long I cooked it because this time it was outstanding. Spaghetti squash is going to be a friend of mine:
I helped a friend today, and I am grateful that I have such good friends. People who won’t let me down, and who appreciates me for who I am. I am fortunate that my family, friends, and my Saturday morning WW group are so supportive as I go through this journey to finally get to goal.
It’s scary to think about how public I’ve made this endeavor. I keep reminding myself, “This is important I want to change my life for the better, I can do this.” When I set this gut-wrenching goal like losing a significant amount of weight, there is always going to be emotion. I say go big or go home on this one. Besides, if I fail along the way, I can reflect and figure out a better plan.
Thank you for reading my posts. Writing helps – it’s an outlet for me to explore this process. My wish for you is to celebrate the little things, the big things, and all the things in-between. We are the lucky ones who are working to make a plan for change.
