Small successes

Just a list of recent successes:

  • Chose teriyaki salmon over yakisoba today at lunch.  This way, I didn’t have too much starch AND I had leftover salmon for lunch tomorrow.  Which I’m having with a kale salad.
  • Prepped veggies for my lunches this week: kale salad, and sautéed greens.
  • Actually did a Barre3 workout
  • Totally nailed it this year’s halloween package for the little girl next door. Yep – that’s a hand knit Barbie dress.


Rainy vacation

DH and I are off for a much needed week of relaxation.  Our May vacation was preempted by my father’s death. He died the Sunday our week off was to have started. Needless to say rest and relaxation did not happen that week.

Fast forward several blurry months and here we are. Camped out in our N Georgia sanctuary enjoying that peace that a rainy day and a cup of tea will offer. We got here Friday and it has been cloudy and rainy ever since. This has left much time for knitting and pondering the state of my mind.

And of course pondering the state of my mind leads to aimless wandering through the Internet. Probably looking for that magic pill. Didn’t find one. Go figure.

But I did stumble across the combined work of two fitness/diet bloggers I admire: Roni from Roni’s Weigh and Carla from Carla Birnberf – Unapologetically Myself.  The two ladies have combined their talents to help spread the word about a completely common sense practice that must of us forget in our quest to be perfect: Do what you can when you can.  #wycwyc

i think taking this nugget of common sense to heart will help with my consistency issues.  Today, I took a baby step  I had tea and knit instead of noshing on cake.  This helped me feel more satisfied with myself.
