Food Journal – Yes
Good morning Mintdom
I know that yesterday’s step cont is low. I am ok with that. I decided to give myself Mondays off basically – HONESTLY! It is in my Spark People** goals. Mondays are a Toastmaster; sit at my desk, once a month networking day. I just cannot get it all in – even getting up at 5:00 or 5:30 in the morning! I DID keep track my food journal up, although I went over in my calories. I have been so much better about my food since I started keeping track of it. I do not know why I resisted for so long. It is not so difficult and it does not take up a lot of my time.
Time is certainly on my mind lately. There are so many choices on how to spend my time. One of the good things about being single, (see – there ARE good thing about being single) is that I can be a little more selfish on how I spend my time. I think my issue is that I tend to get TOO busy to stop and just enjoy. I get too busy doing, and not just being. I want to be a human being, not a ‘human doing’. I do take time in the morning just to sit and be quiet, which is a step in the right direction, but ten or fifteen minutes in the morning is probably not enough. I think I need to do more… err I mean less LOL!

I could use some suggestions. Do I take a whole day off every week? What do I do with that day? Do I time in the middle of the day? What activity or non-activity would I do for let’s say, a half-hour? I would love it if you would share your thoughts here, just click on reply. I am sure that I am not the only one that needs help with this. Just thinking about it makes my palms a little sweaty because I am thinking that if I take out this half hour, or whatever time, I am going to have to be busier in the other time, to make up for it! I am rather stuck in a time spiral! I LOVE having a full life and I want to live it for a long time, but I think that I need to pace myself if that is going to happen. I do not know about you, but I need help with this! Maybe Ringo Starr can get us started. He gives us advice on this video.

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
Life is good
