Come on get happy!

Sunday, June 14, 2015

Weight Watcher this month.....this Summer is taking the approach on being HAPPY. For the next 12 weeks......we shall be focusing on finding joy. Living ...doing weight watchers is not just eating healthy and fitness, but about finding that inner peace ....so that we CAN do well. It is finding that balance.

I can see that......for...the better you FEEL about yourself....the smarter the choices one can make.

Our homework this week was to write ONE thing each day that made you smile. I did that.

At first....it was hard for me...to find that ONE thing that made me smile. emoticon As the day was coming to an end...I was like....oh no...I need something! Now....I am like....ONLY ONE THING? I have SEVERAL to choose upon!

1) My meetings....my leaders......
2) my cats......

yes..the OBVIOUS!

but...I have expanded my list.....

I love first thing in the morning at work.......as we wait for the boiler to heat up....we drink our coffee and read the paper.....My husband gets the comics before I do...and I love to hear him chuckle...for I then cannot wait to see....WHY.

I went grocery shopping yesterday...and spent so much time in the produce section.....LOOKING.....EXPLOR
ING...and BUYING.....ME...buying a nice selection of PRODUCE...mainly VEGETABLES........ME!

I knitted last night for several hours...something I have not done lately.

I sat outside this am at 6 ......drinking coffee....and enjoying my point friendly breakfast....NO radio....no voices......just the sound of rain and birds waking up.

Since Tuesday...I have walked 25 miles...and earned 14 activity points (I have the active link....have to earn baseline before activity points..so...sounds low..but not actually) My week ends Monday.....so....more miles and points to earn.

I have TRACKED faithfully my week. I have used quite a bit of my weeklies...but...am OKAY with that. The extra points I have used have been for GOODNESS and not CRAP. I haven't played ANY games with my tracker.

I do FEEL CONTENT.


I have to admit........I THOUGHT I was on my own this week. I did. The friends I do things with as far as nutrition and fitness are concern.......are NOT on the same page as I am. In the past.....I would....be down...and end up joining them.....with their struggles....because to be honest....I used them as MY excuse NOT to do well.....for me. This time...as I read their posts...their texts......

I didn't FALTER. I didn't. I dismissed those negative thoughts from my mind...and rationally told myself...that is NOT you. You WANT to do this....YOU DO. I .....just responded that I was sorry. I didn't elaborate......I may have been a bad friend.....but...I didn't encourage either. I...just said...I am sorry...you have a lot going on.....and you shall find your way soon....and left it at that.


then... ...an old college friend of mine emailed me. She has seen my progress on FB......and decided to join me in walking. She lives in New Orleans...a HOT state. She has been getting up at 630am to walk 2 to 4 miles...before it gets too warm. She has been watching her food intake. SO...each night ...we write each other and share our mileage and our day. It reminds me of OLD times...for in college...we use to walk each night after dinner for an hour. It was a time to unwind and share our day. Fast forward to our present.

She made me happy. She made me smile.

What makes me smile...are small stuff........and by having the small stuff...the major stuff.....I seem to have dealt with on a more even keel this week.

I am not this cheerleader by far...... emoticon ....but I am finding my inner peace.

I am taking the time to PREP my food for the next day and PACK it to take to work. I KNOW what I am having for dinner the DAY ahead. I am NOT tempted when other options ...POP UP. I like my choices.

One good decision......action......does lead to another.

In...12 weeks...I shall earn a HAPPY FACE charm from weight watchers.

The KEY Word...is EARN ...my charm....not just because I shall attend my meetings...but because...I am doing it.....

and.....

that too...makes me smile.....
