Hello. I skipped day three. I got to bed late and didn’t jot down any thoughts. I thought I would combine my Day 3 and 4 into one. Yesterday was pretty good. I woke up feeling terrrrrible though. I woke up with a headache, NO energy, and just overall blah. It was a struggle. I pushed through, took advil, drank water, finally ate some protein and I came around. The rest of the day was fine. I have decided that simple is the name of the game this go round. No crazy recipes, no fancy brands, etc. Just keeping it simple and re-thinking dinner. My Mimi’s Friday night dinners would cry at my naked hamburger patty and green beans Tuesday night, but none the less, it was exactly enough and it was easy. Grilling ahead, cooking ahead, etc helps so much when it comes to quick dinners and emergencies. Keeping it simple has been SO good. I am hating breakfast these days. I don’t want it. So, I’m just finding ways to eat a bigger lunch/protein and good fat wise and then lots of water. I’m tanking coffee right now because I like coffee with dairy and sweetness. SO, ya. that’s out. haha Nutpods are ok. They’re not a vanilla latte.
So we truck on and get through the first week. I feel empowered by not caving or giving in… it really is a mental exercise. Sometimes we think things are SO hard and maybe they are, but maybe those hard things are the BEST thing for us. Let’s do hard things, folks. Do the hard thing and love your spouse even when you don’t want to, love your kids even in the darkest parts of parenting, which means grace and patience…. hard things like extending grace to the checker at the grocery store, your co-worker, etc. Let’s do hard things, like take care of ourselves. Let’s do hard things, like commit to our families, our homes, our churches and our communities.
Please, weather, please cooperate with our fall needs, please. please.
Have a great day folks! Hard things can be good things.
What hard things are y’all doing these days? Share away!
