I'm not quite ready for the New Year and all the new beginning, resolution, fresh start, goal/theme/word/mojo mumbo jumbo that goes with it. I tend to think it's important to set the intention though I find it hard to maintain through the year. A lot of blogs are showing me that folks are really working on this. Some are wayyyyy ahead of me on this. These folks have it together..or seem to.
And I've seen two Nutrisystem and one Weight Watchers commercial in the last hour. No , no , no. not going there.
Maybe it was traveling over the weekend and generally not eating balanced and properly proportioned meals. And with eating out of balance, and a lot of focus on listening and supporting my sister with her feelings and emotions, my own feelings and emotions were stuffed down and shielded. (like a tiny almond sliver in side a Hershey's kiss--my inner foodie put that in)
I drove back from Alabama today and listened to and sang with the soundtrack to Nashville over and over. Good stuff. And mindless nibbling. Therefore , productive and constructive thinking (and feeling)--not so much.
In flux, but I do want to be practicing good habits again. I can't set a goal/ theme intention or resolution until I'm centered. I can't decide if I even want to set those things. I'm just working on getting centered. then I'll move on from there. I'm also aware and reminding myself of what I should be grateful for.
That all being said, I do hope . I mean I really REALLY do hope that this will be year of peace and better health for us all.
I'm a Geek for many things: Food, Pajamas, Coffee, Chocolate, Movies, Books, getting and being fit and healthy, 80's music, and the list goes on and on .....A nurse, a diabetic, I've lost over 130 lbs and have more to go . And I actually enjoy working out.
I chose the names of Ms. PJ Geek and PJ and Pounds because I have happy memories of childhood, coming in dirty and sweaty from playing in the yard. Then taking a bath, putting on a fresh nightgown and feeling all new again . I felt like a princess. Fresh renewal. .........
All names and situations will be changed to protect the innocent and the guilty, and so I can keep my job. While I am a nurse, I do not intend this to be a blog with specific directions or guidelines for healthcare. And.....though I have a college degree, that was a long time ago ya'll, and I don't remember proper punctuation or grammar.
