Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

Lately

I am still mainly working from home. Still encouraged to come in more often if I want. I have really gotten into a great groove when working from home and I don’t want to mess with it. I go for an hour long walk at lunch and am starting to explore my neighbourhood. I am usually on the phone with a friend who is also walking their neighbourhood. This makes the time pass quickly and does wonders towards getting me to meet my 10K steps per day. I surprised myself by surpassing my 5 days per week goal last week and walked 10K steps 6 days in a row. I took today as a rest day but still managed to get over 8K steps.

I learned something new 2 weeks ago. Let me start this by saying I was not brought up participating in any religion nor do I currently follow one at this time. Having said that I have given up meat for Lent for at least 10 years now. I always thought Lent was a 40 day period that went from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday. Imagine my surprise when I learned it is actually 46 days. So I have cut my no meat period short this year. Mainly because 2 of my favourite meals were on the menu in the cafeteria on two of the days I went in to the office. But no more cheating for me. There will be no land animals going down hatch until Easter. I will still get 40 days in.

I went back to counting calories last week. I do not like it. While I don’t think I eat anything too calorie heavy on a regular basis I had a feeling that my portions might have grown. Some did and others didn’t. The eye opener for me it looking at how much fiber and protein I get. Protein is better than fiber. Salads for dinner is back on the menu. I am doing well on the water front and get at least 8 cups of water every day. My goal is 12. I think I actually do get that as I drink 2-4 mugs of tea every day but I am only counting water.

Tomorrow I will measure and weigh myself. Things feel like they are going in the right direction. Hopefully the numbers support my feelings.

Hope all is well in your world. Stay safe.

  1. Hi Sunny, I’m glad you are being healthful! I was raised Catholic and my extended family’s practice during Lent was that you got Sundays and St. Patrick’s Day off!
