It's a beautiful day here in Jersey. I decided to take Chloe out for a walk in the park instead of just letting her run around the back yard. She was ecstatic. Unfortunately, she stopped every five seconds to 'smell the roses' and my heart rate didn't get near as high as it should have, but we still enjoyed our time outdoors together.
Yesterday I was so gun-ho on getting my entire house cleaned from top to bottom. Oh well. I guess it was the thought that counted. I don't think I got one entire room cleaned. My mind was all over the place, even though I had a to-do list. But I did clean out the minivan, or mom-car as Kina calls it.
This morning I woke up with a hormonal headache and I was feeling a bit "off". I kind of did some emotional eating this morning. A fried bologna sandwich. Three slices= 180 calories. Two slices of light wheat bread= 90 calories. 1/2 tbsp full fat mayo= 45 calories. Okay, that I can deal with, if only I was satisfied. Nope. I had to grab a serving of Cheez-its. 27=150 calories. At least I didn't sit with the entire box.
Later I went on my Dunkin Donut run for my kid's weekly sugar fix. My boys eat healthy EVERY day. Low-fat milk, whole wheat products, water, chicken, limited salt, sugar and butter. They workout EVERY day. I wish I could say that I instilled this healthy lifestyle in them, but I can't take the credit. I actually try to follow their lead. On Sundays, especially during
season, they eat what they want. Anyway, back to my point. My favorite
is the original Dunkin Donut with it's crisp, sweet outside. But today, I didn't order one. Another NSV for me and I'm back on track as of this moment.
I'm really trying. I want to be the person that I envision in my mind. Full of energy and zest for life, with the healthy body to go along with it. That's my goal for this year and I won't stop until I achieve it.
Reach for the stars and the moon.
