Tweek 1 goals

Monday, May 02, 2011

I downloaded an app for my iPod about tweaking one thing in my life to move me towards a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed with all that I have to do. I just don't do. I am going to Tweak one thing a week maybe longer till i am consistently doing it 90% of the time. As i learn I will share it. My goal is to be healthy and strong.

Tweek 1
The basics of a healthy lifestyle. Strive to live it 90% of the time. Which roughly works out to 6 days a week.
This week I am focusing on water. Drinking enough of it. The body is made up of mostly water. So we should be putting back what we sweat, and other stuff out. So when I get up in the morning i am going to drink 500 ml of water (I small water bottle) before I do anything else. I am going to drink water before every meal. This way I feel fuller while I am eating. I am going to make sure I have water with me all day. I have a headache right now. I know I did not drink enough today. I drink lots and lots but I was also out in the sun all day working. I know I am dehydrated.

So Day 1 of drink one went pretty good. I just need to drink more if I stay in the sun for as long as I did today. Not to mention putting sunscreen on. My nose is killing me only slightly red.


Stress Journal

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Today. I am stressed because my son was upset. When my son gets upset it is horrible. I should state that he has classic Autism and is mostly non-verbal. So when I can't understand him and what he wants we get a tantrum. Crying, head banging, chinning, and new kicking. I usually can head them off but not today. I finally got him calmed down but I am now stress at work and trying to relax myself.

The rest of my day should go OK. I am hoping the school will give my son a social story for sitting on the bus. So he isn't crying when he gets off the bus. I don't think I can handle it today.

I should mention, I got my period also. Which doesn't help. I feel blah anyways.

Today for breakfast I had 1/8 of my egg whites, tomatoes, spinach breakfast. My son ate it. (That is what set him off he didn't want his cereal (which he asked for) he wanted my eggs) So then I had an English muffin with peanut butter. Already had 2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of juice.

Exercise yeah right!!! My plan was to walk/run while my son was eating and while mine was cooling down. So the plan is to run/walk when I get home at 1pm from work. Hope now problems with my daughter or husband so I can.

Continued for later......

    I bet if you think about it enough you can come up with some things to be thankful for... sometimes that helps me turn a day's outlook around...

    the last thing you probably need is someone to tell you 'this too shall pass'... so I won't say that...

You and your family are in my prayers today...

Maybe you could come up with a little treat for yourself, something special just for you (even if you can't do it now, sometimes planning it and putting it on a calendar is enough to get you by)...

    Bless your heart! You have got a lot on your plate. Make sure that you take care of you as well. Don't let the stress of everyday life bring you down nor the monthly visitor.
