Day 3: My Journey to Wellness

Since I'm making changes, it's time to change the title to My Journey to Wellness.  There is no looking back now, right!?!?

Even though it was a relatively gloomy looking day, my energy levels were high surprisingly!   Maybe it has something to do with being Friday, and just looking forward to the weekend, too!  Last night, I attempted to go to be early -but, my brain kept racing with ideas of what to blog about and ideas for this journey.  Truly, I should have gotten out of bed and just meditated!  Would of, could of, should of....

My Day 3 is just simply a good day, I think!  It started with my Bestie sending me a text just to let me know what they were having to eat at her son's birthday party.  This day brightener may sound so petty -but, to me it was huge!  I'm blessed with a bestie who just gets me.  The simple text of the head up on food reduced to much of my anxiety.  Between Miss J and I both being GF, I always feel like a nag when I have to always ask about food food being served at functions and leads to feeling like an inconvenience expecting to be accommodate; which isn't the case.  If there isn't going to be food we can eat, I always try to make the same they are having or something special so Miss J fits in or feels a little extra special if there is something she would really want but can't.  Just the simple little gesture from by bestie beyond made my day.  It's truly the little things.  

It's a pizza night in our house tonight so it won't be the healthiest eating day -but, at least it isn't fried food, right?!?!  Maybe I'll get a little creative with the pizza making though or even make homemade crust instead of using a pre made GF shell.  Decisions, decisions!

My plan is after dinner to escape to meditate or do a yoga tape...and maybe even Miss J will do that with me or even all for a little walk as a family.  

Our weekend is a fun filled weekend - so, there is a chance I may not do any blog post -but, I will certainly try my best!  

Wished you all a blessed weekend full of lots of GF goodness, and fun!

Day 2: Time for Change

Well, I'm going to be honest...I've been debating now doing this blog post thinking "what's it matter, no one reads in anyway">  But, then that tiny, tiny voice in my head tells me to keep pushing forward in case there is that slight chance some one is going through the same thing. it goes!

Yesterday (day 1) my body fought me hard at the end of the day so bad that I had to put my husband in charge of dinner, 
and lay down to rest.  Listening to my body for those 15 minutes of rest did wonders for me.  That is my biggest challenge...listening to my body and not overdoing.  And I know I'm certainly not alone in that, right?!?!  

For the first time in a long time, I ate all 3 meals, too!!  Yippee!!  

Ok, back to Day 2!

Thursdays are my crazy day.  I help at an after school program with Miss J, and you'd think by now I'd be used to it and have dinner in the crockpot ready for us -but, I always forget.  Then, I'm always struggling to think on my feet quickly to get a healthy meal on the table.  Uggh.

Today since I did a lot of running around all day, I didn't do my best at hydrating.  However, I still did better than I "used" to!  In addition, I need to push through each day and set aside time to do yoga or go for a walk.
As you can tell, I'm slow to making this change to my wellness.  But, determined to do, slow is better than not doing it!  

Overall, I'm proud of my first 2 days, and keep reminding myself that that is always room for improvement especially since change is a challenge of it's own.

Here's to a great day 3 tomorrow...and days to come!
