-I really like protein. It makes my my meals much more filling and I do much better if I have some good protein in the morning. The days I skipped breakfast or grabbed something light were challenging for me.
-I will plan all my meals for the week. Yes, even breakfast and lunch for me and Logan. I've been winging it for the day time meals thinking I had them covered. Not so!
-I will plan my activities for when Logan is napping. I used to have lunch and watch the programs I wanted to watch on tv. I found this my weakest time for all things bad for me. I will now weed my garden or work on some artwork, read, household repairs, clean the bathrooms, weave that basket I've been meaning to get to...ANYTHING but sit, watch tv, and eat in the name of relaxation.
-I will not compare my journey with others. I am on my own path and that is just fine. I have a lot of work to do and a lot of changes to make. My deadliest obstacle lies in comparing myself to others. This week I have my head down and focused on the week ahead of me.
A friend of mine sent me this quote and I love it. It has been on my mind since committing to this challenge...
"Wilma Mankiller, the first female principle chief of the Cherokee nation, once told me how the cow runs away from the storm, while the buffalo charges directly toward it- and gets through it quicker. Whenever I'm confronted with a tough challenge, I do not prolong the torment. I become the buffalo." -Donna Brazile
Here we go, week #2!
