I faced the music Saturday morning at my Weight Watchers meeting and lo and behold…I gained a quarter pound. Not really bad at all considering my off track habits from last week. My mission this week is to get back on track regardless of how I feel. I’ll push it all aside and just go for it!
It will take a lot of pushing aside, because in spite of all my efforts and positive reinforcement, I’m still not feeling great. I spent yesterday with a headache that felt like a vice pressing on the outer corner of both eyebrows.
I had been sleeping well in spite of this cold, but last night was not good. I was hot, then I was cold, then I needed a new position, then I had a bad dream (which I can’t remember now…) NOT a good night. Got up at about 5am and decided that before I started with my coffee or with working on the computer, I would meditate. This in an effort to center myself and hopefully have a good start to the day. I’m proud of myself for sticking with my meditation. It worked well for me before and I’m hoping it will this time. Focus is always the great challenge in my life, but I guess as long as I keep working on it, all is not lost.
I did wake up to a beautiful sliver of a moon saying good morning to me through my kitchen window. Then I realized that my sleep pants also had crescent moons on them. They’re an azure blue with yellow moons and white stars. I’ll spare you a photo of them, I’ll let you use your imaginations! 😉 They’re old and comfy and it made me laugh when I made the connection between the moon in my window and the moon on my pants. I suppose that’s a kind of focus…I can make that connection at least.
Before I forget, I want to make mention of Veteran’s Day. I should have started with this, but as I said…I’m scattered.
Thank you so much to all of the Veterans who throughout our country’s history have given their strength and resolve and in many cases their lives to keep our country Strong and Safe.
I would especially like to thank my Veteran, Ralph…
I wish I had known him then. I’m so very proud of his service. I told him that this morning. Please, if you have any Veterans in your life, please tell Him or Her what their service means to you.
Happy Sunday! Happy Veteran’s Day!
