Just Today…


Losing weight can be a hard journey, some times looking at the big picture is too much. My new motto is “Just for today”.

* Just for today I will drink more water than diet coke
* Just for today I can get in at least 30 minutes of exercise
* Just for today I can choose more fruits and vegetables
* Just for today I can do this.


I plan on indulging over the holiday and I make no apologies about that, but I also plan on getting in a workout as well. This morning before I went to my mom’s for an all day cook fest, I did some Ab Jam.


Tonight we are headed out for a pre Thanksgiving dinner out and then I’m going to bed early. My Mom is allergic to turkey, so I am in charge of that as well, since we eat Thanksgiving early in the afternoon, that big ol bird needs to be in the oven early, so I sleep over at my Mom’s house every year. This will be the first night in the 19 months that Emma has been alive that I will be getting a full night of uninterrupted sleep. Holy crap.

I leave you with this. Remember, food is not good or bad. There is no need to punish yourself for eating food or feeling like you “deserve” it. Ever.


From my family to yours- Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

    I think your moto is great! Just for Today! Spot on. Sometimes looking at the big picture is daunting. And I agree that everyone should indulge on Thanksgiving… just not go over board. I think there’s a difference between stuffing yourself and enjoying a bit of everything. Although I usually end up stuffing myself 😉 Have a great Thanksgiving!!!

      Completely agree! I have no plans on eating until I can no longer move, but it’s definitely a day I’ll indulge in desserts and having a taste of everything.
