Be Who You Are

"Be who you are and say what you feel,
 because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”
 Dr. Seuss

Good Momday morning:) I feel something good will happen today! No clue why.. I just do. Check back with me
I spent the week end sewing/quilting and mindful food intake.. ok, and pricking my fingers. grunt. ( Lord I hate that) Now one would think that since I prick myself all the time on the long arm, I'd be used to it eh? Nope.
I've lost a few pounds and taken a few walks. I think I'm on baby steps with a fire alarm pulled. Yes. Thats what it feels like. A constant alarm going off in my head. I had fun with two new toys this week end.
One... I have become a little obsessed with making sausage pilllow case! Yep, Making adorable pillow cases for all the grands, in a tube shaped way. Serious fun. Secondly, My sis in law Sheena sent me a great lil motivator and to my surprise the darn things working on me!
FitBit is its name. Its a little techy toy personal trainer. It measures my activity, sleep patterns, and food intake. I think its quite comforting to know that by lunchtime I can know how many more calories Im allowed for dinner instead of playing Russian roulette!
I thought it was a glorified Pedometer, however much to my surprise, its much much more! After three nights I am already trying to adjust my sleep because I dont like my pattern!
So I wear this lil thing clipped to my bra and everytime I walk by my computer, it syncs automatically and records all my stats.One of the cool things too is that it also KNOWS all the nutrition facts of the foods I put in, so that I can see if Im getting the correct amounts of each food group. One night I ate a bit of fruit in the evening and shot my blood sugar off the charts. NOT GOOD. I now know that a handful of nuts would have done better. Baby steps. grunt.
Now I dont know if this will last, or if its just the new tech toy, but I'm going to give it my best to find out. Thank you Sheena for the encouragement! One day at a time.
I'm off to get my fatbut  FitBit !

My go-to snack at night is a spoonful of peanut butter (the natural kind with no added sugar, of course). Good luck with your journey. Let's see those pillows!

What a cool sounding toy! To do a job right, one must have the right tools. Keep up the good work! (Remember scissors and templates?!)
