    I don't know about you but this week has been a frustrating one and yesterday was just a plain bizarre day. So I want to take a few minutes to focus on the positive as this day begins.

    What have you done well this week?
    What has come along to surprise you?
    What is making you happy at the moment?

    • I have taken my vitamin each day with dinner
    • I resisted the urge to buy a baked good and over eat at Panera yesterday.
    • I resisted the urge to have some pop with lunch instead of iced tea
    • I resisted the urge to have a sweet treat after dinner even though we don't have much to choose from around here anyhow
    • Kitty cuddles make it all better

    Hi Deb,

    Good to see you and know you have made some good decisions for yourself this week.

    As for me, what I have done well this week is stick to my eating program. This is the first week I've succeeded more than one day. I've really struggled with craving sweets since taking all the hormones I do and this week is the first time I haven't run out and bought some treat at night. This also answers "What has come along to surprise you?" which is the fact that I haven't fallen off the wagon, and "What is making you happy at the moment?" which is finally having success!

    The weekends are always challenging but I am hoping to have at least 1 good week under my belt.

    I went to Jazzercise (Sun, Mon & Thur) plust went to their strengh training class on Wednesday. Plus I signed up for their new "Pure Muscle" class which promised to kick my ass over the month of October.

    What has come along to surprise you?
    I had a sudden craving for McDonalds; co-work came into Houston this week.

    What is making you happy at the moment?

    I agree with Deb that kitty cuddles are uplifting; Hubby's kisses are not bad either! I get to sleep as soon as I hit send on this note...
