February 14th, 2019 Shane
Yesterday was a 4-star day: I maintained the integrity of my calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, I personally prepared all of my meals, and I stayed well connected with exceptional support.
I'll be getting back to exercise schedule today. These 4-star days keep me, but I want more! I'm giving myself some love and compassion considering this week's challenges--and that's required me to lower my expectations for the week. Weeks like this will happen occasionally.
Today would have been my little brother Shane's 42nd birthday. It's hard to wrap my mind around the fact that he's been gone for eighteen years. As much as I want to believe that I've worked through the grieving process, this day often reminds me that I'm not sure I've ever fully worked through it all to a place of peace. I love and miss Shane, horribly.
My morning routine is complete, my food is planned and packed, and I'm headed for the door within minutes.
Thank you for reading and your continued support,
Practice, peace, and calm,
