Another week starts today.

Monday, January 14, 2013

Today is a new day and I usually have a fresh perspective in the morning!! I am meeting a friend for breakfast this morning. We do a lot of texting, but seldom see each other. I met her at the gym, so we have exercise in common. Of course, we are both women with a lot in common. We can talk about men, relationships, exercise, and just about anything else!! She is busy, but I feel good that she and I are having breakfast together. Might not eat, but will have a soda. I know...not recommended. It will be a diet as that is all I drink. I have given up so much and had to change so much that I want to keep that soda in my life right now. emoticon I do try to drink water in between soda's and I also drink soy milk, almond milk and a little juice. I try to keep the juice to a 4 or 6 oz glass when I have it. emoticon Sometimes water is what I need. When I am hungry I have a emoticon and am no longer hungry!! Try that...it really does work sometimes. Sometimes we think we are hungry when in fact we are just thirsty.

I have errands to run today and want to do a little house cleaning later. It is good exercise and I also want to get my 10 minute walk in today. It is suppose to be a little warmer here today, so I think the walk is definitely doable!!

I have a board meeting tonight, so will need to rest this afternoon. It is at 5:30 pm and I don't do well in the evening. That is my time to relax. I try to have everything done before then, but it is the only time everyone can meet with everyone's schedule being so busy. emoticon

We are in the process of hiring a new executive director for our organization. I am not attending the interviews as I was sick last week and we want the same people at all the interviews. Our board is small right now, but we have a big task ahead of us!! Hopefully the 5 people will be good candidates and we will find the ED we really need that can do lots of fundraising and get our organization back to where it needs to be!! We had a bad year last year and didn't make the money we really need to keep us afloat. emoticon

I have already been on Spark Coach today. I plan to join today as my 2nd free trial is up today. I think it is just what I need to stay accountable and will help with my motivation this year!! Last year wasn't the best in the motivation department and even worse in the weight loss department!! emoticon

I am losing again and hope to keep it up. I have about 50 or so pounds to lose yet to be at my comfortable weight. I don't want to try to be what I was at 18, because it wasn't a healthy weight. I looked good...but it is not realistic at my age!! Especially with all I am going through right now; like the peri-menopause and mental health issues. I do want to be active like I was in the past and eat when hungry not all the time!! Or out of boredom!! emoticon When I eat at night that is why..I am bored!!

So I guess I can sum it all up. I want to be active again. I want to look healthy and have a healthy BMI. And I want to feel good all over!! More movement and activity and less arthritis pain. emoticon Maybe I can even play women's soccer next spring or summer?? I would really enjoy doing that. And I don't smoke anymore, so could probably not have to huff and puff as much while playing!! emoticon

Have an awesome day!! And Spark ON!!

    I usually eat breakfast early. I wasn't going to skip breakfast...just not eat at Burger King when we got together! She had a sick child, so we didn't get together. I took a rain check. I hope to get together with her next week!

    Our meeting last night was long. It was about 8pm when I got home and the meeting started at 5:30 pm. I am the new secretary for NAMI Billings. I am excited about it. I like to be organized and minutes are an important part of a board meeting.

    Thanks for all the comments. MOBEANZ I might give up soda one day...not today!!

    Soda was not an easy thing to give up quickly. It took a lot of weaning and months of cutting back to completely get rid of it. We went from five a day to one a day to one a week to one every other weekend to none. It takes a while but it IS possible and you know what on special occasions I have a real soda instead of a diet because the sugar is better than all the chemicals. You can do it!
