I'm done my 7 day challenge on the cabbage soup, and today I took charge by still eating very much the same except for having a pear/ginger smoothie for breakfast. I had veggie stir-fry for my supper and pear chips and fresh veggies for my lunch.

Resurrecting Take Charge Tuesday!
It's time to "take charge" of whatever is happening in our daily lives. If you are struggling with something make today the day that you become the one that is in charge. Remember ONLY you are responsible for your actions and reactions. Other may influence things, but only if you allow them to.

What are you taking charge of today?

Leaving home earlier than usual this morning, I forgot to take my yogurt & grapefruit with me for lunch. Though I was thinking of stopping at a fast food place for a fish sandwich, I decided to drive on by and have oatmeal (which I keep in my desk) for lunch instead.

Jan 13 Take Charge Tuesday!

Have you got an area in your journey to health that you are struggling with? Make the decision for the next 24 hours that you are going to be the boss! Today is your day to Tackle and Take Charge of whatever is giving you grief. Instead of looking on it as something long term, look on it as only being for 24 hours. Let tomorrow take care of itself. Once you have been able to tackle and charge of the issue, it becomes easier to do it again.

What are you going to Take Charge of today?

My Take Charge for today: I am going to take charge of doing arm lifts and leg lifts in stead of procrastinating about them. Which in turn means changing my attitude about doing them!


Hugs,
Wanda

I am taking charge of "saying NO" to all the "junk" food that is rapidly making it's way into our department at work. We have a boss that is fixated on food and constantly wants to discuss eating and various types of "favorite" foods.
My plan: to bring my own healthy snacks to work with me, to keep my water bottles filled and in sight on my desk, take my breaks and leave the department.

April 8 Take Charge Tuesday!

I needed this one today to remind myself that I have to Take Charge of my attitude. I have to ensure that it is a positive one. We had a very disappointing choice made yesterday for Geff's position. It was someone that we really did not want to see get the job for many reasons, all of which we voiced privately to our manager after she made the announcement. Decision has been made and now it's up to each of us individually to choose how we act and react. This is going to be a tough adjust period.

What are you struggling with and how are you going to Take Charge of it?


Hugs,
Wanda

Well tonight was ladies night out and we went to a Mexican restaurant, lets just say I did not track food today or anything else. So, tomorrow I'll track, watch what I eat and keep it all together, exercise class in the morning.

Name one area of your life that you are going to "Take Charge" of today. No excuses, no postponing...just plain and simply Take Charge.

I am taking charge of my attitude today since I am in the office with two challenging co-workers. I will stay positive...and I will decide on tomorrow's program at a local college based on my comfort level with the impending sn*wstorm...and not feel guilty.

I was going to go home last night and write about how I'd taken charge a little bit of the "mess" that creeps in there. It didn't really happen. I just don't seem to be up to it, (mostly), when I get home from work. I need to develop some sort of plan to tackle that part of my life.

What area of your life have you been letting just happen? Do you need to make a change in how you are living? Today is the day!

Choose one area of your life that you are not fully happy with and make the decision that it is not going to remain unfilled. Take charge of your life.

Today I am taking charge of :

My take charge action is to get my steps in before I sit down to relax for the evening. My steps will be done by 6pm and then any steps done after that time will be bonus steps!

The thing about getting healthy is that it is all up to you...no one else puts the food or drink into your mouth and no one else can make your body exercise. It's all up to you.

Take Charge of your habits today and be the one in control.

Another notification I didn't receive.

Because of stress, I slipped up a bit this weekend, losing "charge" of planning my meals ahead of time. Changed this up yesterday with planning ahead again. The thought of adding food to my tracker makes me less likely to overeat or eat something that's not healthy.

I like Mauri's challenge that she posted and thought it was time to do it again.

What step have you set to reach your goal that you have lost track or "charge" of? Make today the day you do it.


I'm taking charge of having my snacks all ready to grab and go. I need to get back to having all my veggies cut up and ready to grab to take to work. I like having my fruit all cut up also into a fruit salad that I can easily take with me.

Hugs.

Mauri I am with you, last week was not good with the food, so yesterday's trip to the grocery store helped as I picked up grapes, apples, broccili, lean chicken and other good things, so eating will be much better today and the rest of the week.

Thanks Mauri for this challenge today.

For what ever reason, drinking my water has been a real challenge for me. I do well when I set out what I need to drink for the day so that it is a visual reminder for me. I need to continue to do that. When I don't see it, I don't drink it!

I have been doing so well since my challenge started but slipped back into not thinking about what foods I'm eating. Today I am taking charge of what foods I eat. I will DO it!

Okay. The negative for me was the bookkeeper coming today...unexpectedly. I took deep breaths and answered her politely. That took a lot of effort but I feel better for it.

The other was my new cell phone arrived and I had forgotten that all the pictures on the old phone are not accessible since I don't have a sim card. My positive spin is I will take some new photos...and they'll be even BETTER!

No real personal negatives, but my co-worker phoned me this morning to say she would not be in as she was heading to the police station with her daughter. Her negative involves a predator on her daughters computer.
The lesson...as parents we really need to be diligent with our children as they access the internet. It doesn't matter who they are, children are vulnerable.
I chose to be supportive of her as she was quite distraught over it all, and encourage her by telling her she was doing the right thing. That she had not failed as a Mom, because she caught things before it went too far. The positive: Her daughter is safe.

It is cold, wet, rainy and all this is suppose to change to snow tonight. It means I will be here a day longer than I planned. Big sigh, big negative, searching through the kosmos for the bad karma.

The positive? one of my clients found out today while we were eating lunch that his wife may have lung cancer. It means, petty old selfish me can be here for him tomorrow instead of getting in the car and racing back to KY.

My morning meditation is something I should listen to really!!!

"Be still and know that I am God."

I am humbled in a good way that I hope to learn from.

I have a staff member who has been off work for over 3 weeks for family health reasons. She was supposed to be back yesterday, then supposed to be back today and still not. I'm frustrated, but yet, I understand.

I'm trying to be calm and get through the things that she would have been doing so that she is fairly caught up when she comes back. I'm struggling with the positive, other than it's how I'd want to be treated in the same situation.

I just got out of bed, so, unless I can count that as a negative, "I've got nuthin'." We'll just have to see how my day goes. "Later!"

Take Charge Tuesday:

Taking responsibility for your own responses and actions...What one negative stands out for you today, how did you handle it, was there a lesson in it for you? Find the positive within the negative.

Have an awesome day.
Hugs,
Wanda

I took charge today by taking myself on an outing down to the fancy fabric store in the museum district of Houston. I needed some inspiration and it did just that for me. I came out of the store empty-handed, but with a head full of ideas and lots of mental notes.
I also made sure that there were plenty of cut vegetables available to me today. They sure come in handy. Thanks for the charge to take charge, Wanda.

Wanda's shaking things up again!

I am being real mindful of what I am eating and tracking each day.

Getting in some kind of exercise at least 6 days this week, also tracking this.

Each morning starting my day right with devotions.

Taking it one day at a time, that's enough to handle.

Keeping connected to sparkpeople for encourgement and support.

Marla love your statement about you and your new kidney meeting, I'll say a big AMEN to that girl.

I'm taking charge today by doing the following:

Feeding my body nutritious foods!
Moving my body to my Wii Fit Plus for at least 30 minutes.
Logging my food and activity.
Having someone (Kevin or Dana) move my recumbent bike back into the house so I can USE IT!
Pedal away while watching the nightly news this evening instead of reclining in my chair.
Continuing to read my Bible, Daily Guidepost and "A Cup of Comfort" books.
Hanging on to the Positives and not dwelling on the Negatives!
Holding MYSELF ACCOUNTABLE for continuing to get healthier so me & my new KIDNEY can meet!
