Cherish moments & experiences, not things.

Far from Home
Spending time with my son, his sick wife and my 14-month old granddaughter.
The weather has turned cold making it harder to walk my daily 3-5 miles.
It’s easier to stay indoors, watch Netflix and play with the baby.
I am slipping into bad habits….eating too much food especially sweets.
I know I will regret it later
I am grasping at whatever keeps me strong, motivated and balanced.
I have to face the demons.
Being with my sick daughter-in-law is a painful reminder of the long illness of my late husband.
I take comfort in the knowledge that cancer treatments today are so much better than when he faced cancer. The “state of the art” treatments he had are considered “old school” now.
Worry is the biggest demon. Worry, worry, worry.
I found that I could not meditate this morning as my mind was fluttering all over the place.
My Fitness Pal
After dutifully logging my coffee, almond milk and water I watched a video on My Fitness Pal phone app by Shana Verstegen on motivation.
It got me going.
So, after a healthy breakfast of steel cut oatmeal, I am out the door for a quick walk in 40° weather.
Head up. Keep moving!
