Day Eighty-Three…

I woke up this morning and made myself a great breakfast. I really enjoyed this, and I kept thinking about how important it is to eat foods that are very satisfying:

David and I went on two long walks today, it was just a gorgeous autumn day. I took so many pictures because each bend of the walk was more lovely than the next:

I was very aware of the moment, I felt very connected and appreciative that this was a special moment.  I was content, I wasn’t looking to do whatever comes next, and I also wasn’t thinking about the past.

I worried a little today because I ate so much on Thanksgiving that my weigh-in (it’s been two weeks since I weighed in) won’t be as great as it would have been. Then I remembered that this isn’t a race.

This is a complex goal that I’m working to achieve, it’s not a yes / no situation. When I make it about good days or bad days I’m missing the point.  I am learning how to properly name my emotions, and I am becoming more mindful of what I eat and when.

Anyway, the holiday season has begun, and my gift to myself is to take time to do what I need so that this will be the year, I get to goal! More tomorrow…
