I have searched the author of the this strip or to give credit for this…

So…Grateful for the opportunities that were bestowed or given to me (us as a family) in 2018.  I am embracing this thought…each day will bring new challenges, and new opportunities…for anything we choose.

I am searching for my heart and mind for choices of opportunities.  What are you looking forward to in 2019?

Blessings.

Sunday Thoughts

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 KJV

I am working on my goals for next year.  Working on walking, running…staying strong.  Renewing strength in my faith…and my life.

What are you goals for 2019?  What are you going to work on for new year?

Blessings.

Bucket List

If you have been following my blog for any amount of time, y’all know that I love going to famous chef’s restaurants.  So David and I were in Las Vegas for our anniversary and birthdays.  We were able to go to several Bucket List places.

We went to Giada’s, and to Robert Irvine’s Public House.  Both were wonderful.But the one place we were absolutely in love with was Hell’s Kitchen-at Caesar’s Palace.  We had seared scallops, lobster risotto as appetizers.  (And I did’t eat all of my meal.)Then I had the Beef Wellington and David had the beef short ribs.  Everything was incredible.  We have watched Hell’s Kitchen, and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Being able to eat at the Gordon Ramsey Hell’s Kitchen was amazing.  I know that it wasn’t the actually studio for the filming, but…it was incredible experience and meal.We had a ball, had some really great food.  Truly a wonderful day.

Blessings.

Mid Year Check Up

Mid Year Check Up -Just typing this bothers me…Mid year check up…MID YEAR! How are we already passed the first week of July?  Has the year flown for y’all?

Going over some of the goals for my year, and I seriously need to get a handle on my weight gain, and wine intake.  It’s been two years since my Gastric Sleeve Surgery, and while I have maintained over a hundred pound weight loss, I have gained back over 15 pounds from my lowest.  I am not eating like I should, and not exercising— so here I am.

There are several other items that I need to get a handle on, and decided that I need to write them down to be more accountable.

#1: Take breaks from social media

I don’t know about you, but I have such a hard time stepping away from social media. As a blogger, I always feel like I have to be posting, so it’s difficult for me to make time for a digital detox. HOWEVER, my hope is that I’ll find some time this month to just unplug and live. Being online is fun, but I think we can all agree there comes a time when we need some separation from the internet.  I like to blog for several days and pre-post them.  This gives me the opportunity to disconnect without really being disconnected from my goal of posting daily on my blog.

#2: Spend more time at the beach

This goes back to goal #1 (disconnecting).  Summertime is my favorite time to go to the beach.  I live at on the some of the most beautiful beaches, yet it seems as those I hardly go.  I need to make more of an effort to go, even if it is for just a hour or so.

#3: Exercise more

I need to get back into my morning habit of waking up and walking.  I started out great about doing this every morning.  I just need to do it again.  And, that brings me to my routines in general…

#4: Update my routines

Routines will be changing soon with my morning commute becoming longer again.  I am so excited about this.  I will be able to think and plan out my day before I get to work.  I plan to be pack my lunch for the next day, organize my items to take to work (gather them and place them where I can find them), and not be in a hurried, unorganized rush.  At least this is my plan.

After my first week, I want to begin my exercise regimen again (goal #3).  Getting up earlier, and kick starting my metabolism I believe really helped with my weight loss and overall health.

The afternoon commute is something I look forward to as well.  Now I almost get home too quickly.  It is as though I don’t have enough time to decompress before I got home so it was though I was even more anxious.  I do like being able to just to sit in silence and talk to myself and God about my day.  It will be good to be able to do this again.  I have a lot rolled into this last goal, but it is really about being less cluttered and more organized.

Four items doesn’t seem like a lot, but truly are huge.  At least they will make a huge impact on my everyday life.  Do you evaluate your goals mid-year?  How do you self check up?

Blessings.
