My Biggest Challenge
Thursday, January 02, 2014
My biggest challenge is to not graze all day long. I am in and out of the kitchen, getting snacks for daycare etc. It is so easy to reach and grab something, take a bite of what I am preparing for the kids. Many times today I had to remind myself DO IT NOW and not eat mindlessly. I have to keep this forefront to remind myself until I can get out of the habit.
I think I will need to have sticky notes posted all over the kitchen
I also like having this as a daily goal -- I want to have a thumbs up not a thumbs down emoticon. I did well for the most part, but I did falter a little bit this afternoon.
One new thing I have started, I fill a 32 oz water bottle and have it at my sewing machine. This has helped me drink more water than my daily goal!!!
Today I accomplished my sewing goal of putting together 17 quilt blocks. I then laid out the blocks for 2 quilts. I probably won't get to sew them together until this weekend. I have my granddaughters tonight & tomorrow night, plus my grandson & other granddaughter will be here tomorrow along with the daycare kids.
