Thoughts for the day-I’m feeling good about this month and my determination to stay on track even though I have several big events this month that will mean eating out and probably off plan at times. But that is OK! It’s not the celebrations or weekend getaways that derail me. It’s the every day when I don’t stay on track that do the most harm. I’m really going to work on my inner dialog and focus on purposing in my heart and mind NOT to fail myself.
o, I opened that bag of cookies, smelled their deliciousness and then sprayed furniture polish into the bag and tossed them into the garbage. How many times have I been determined to stay on plan only to be confronted with temptation and giving in to it? NOT today!! I was so proud of myself that I called hubby and told him, who was also so proud of me

Water- didn't meet my goal
Drink 64oz water
Walk on treadmill 30 min
Work on stopping smoking
Work on organizing house
Didn't drink my water today. I did get my treadmill set up though but didn't use it. I went grocery shopping and by the time I got home and put everything away I was feeling it in my low back so decided to take it easy the rest of the day. I had to buy dog and cat food and lifting on those heavy 30 lb bags is rough on my back and shoulder!
I went over on my goal to limit myself on smoking. I smoked a little over 1/2 pack. But, that's better than a full pack so I'll take it ☺️.
I did go through recipes and got my menu's made out for the week so I'm ready to go.

@Cornanda, Lisa I lived in Florida for 15 years. I’m going down there at the end of the month to move my 77-year-old mother in with me. So, my empty nest is getting filled again. Just in a much different way. Fortunately, I didn’t have any Super Bowl food to tempt me! If it is tempting, you then just throw it away! I’m so glad you are here and working on your health.

[@Cornanda and @mrmcgrath one of the best things about getting to empty nest is when you discover your 'kids' are really neat adults. We have been enjoying the kids wanting to spend time with us by dropping over or visiting on a plan, discussing world events - just getting to know these people. And, wonder of wonders, we think they have liked discovering that their parents are pretty neat, too! We, hubby and I, love walking and biking, kayaking, visiting friends and family - spontaneous date night at the jazz club. All things we couldn't do when they were young or in sports or had band competitions. It's different and can be better in so many ways. From Maria's Empty Nest, thought you might like a glimpse into the future. =>
Love this, thank you!
