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…
