This week my little habit change will be simple: Add a vegetable to my lunch.
I am a bit fussy when it comes to veggies however I am going to make this work. My favorites are: cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers and spinach. So I am going to search out what I can do with those. Wednesdays are going to be salad days.
Hopefully this simple little change will help improve my health.
I am on Easter Vacation this week so I have had a few minutes to read with breakfast. I found on my iphone a book I started but never finished: The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown.
Today I read a really good idea to incorporate into my daily journal; it was something Ms. Brown picked up from a friend during a Twelve –Step Meeting. I may find this a neat idea because I am a first grade teacher and I spend a lot of time teaching vowels.
A = Have I been Abstinent today? (Pick something to give up each day!)
E = Have I exercised today?
I = What have I done for myself today?
O = What have I done for others today?
U = Am I holding on to unexpressed emotions today?
Y = Yeah! What is something good that’s happened today?
I am going to give it a try this week and see if it will help me focus. I really like the idea of giving something up each day. (I'm thinking sugar, wheat, after school snacks...Starbucks.) Give up a little sacrifice each day that I can turn into a blessing.
