I couldn't resist adding an exclamation point after the title. There are lots of exclamation points in titles in blog world currently. Exclaim it to the world, people!
Getting centered ....and back on track , in the groove, on plan, abstinant..whatever. I journaled for the first full day in a while. I didn't eat excessive carbs and sugar. I did have a pretty bad headahce. withdrawal? I exercised. I hydrated. I ate mindfully at the table except for a few licks of the spoon.
I went back and read my blog posts for January 2012 which I highly recommend others re-read their own blogs. This was my statement in last years 2012 January 1 posts.
I'm just grateful for what I have and my hopes are to be a better steward of my life , my health, my gifts. I know that I want my life to have more purpose, peace, better health, hope, joy, self -honesty, self care, and caring for others in a healthy way.
It is centering to just read what I wanted from 2012. I know that at times I did have all of those things but itjust was never 100% permanent. Oh, some things were...are..somethings are in flux.
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.
