June 17th, 2020 Very Well

June 17th, 2020 Very Well

Since our last edition: I've maintained the integrity of my food plan boundaries, I've remained refined sugar-free, I've met or exceeded my daily water goal, I've enjoyed some really good walks and a few body-weight strength routines. I've also stayed well connected with exceptional support.

Mom's care plan meeting was a good report yesterday. It was different, of course; over the phone, but all things considered, it was a good one. Mom is doing well and remaining well and it is a wonderful thing to feel confident in her care. She has her moments when she just gets exhausted with all the precautions, but ultimately, she seems to realize they're in her best interests. In-person visiting may resume soon but it will be very different than before-likely outside, by appointment, no hugs, and socially distanced. The difference will be the lack of speaking loudly through the glass. We will take it! It isn't quite the freedom to come and go mom wants now, but for now, especially with new cases on the rise, it sounds like a good compromise.

We've had a couple of good through the glass visits recently and several Facebook Portal video visits. She's getting better and better at operating that new-fangled technology.

I'm doing well, too. Occasionally, I emcee/dj weddings--not very often, but when someone asks, if I'm available, I usually do it. I had one on Saturday. It was a beautiful event. I always bring a backup food plan in my manbag just in case the food selections aren't in line with my food plan boundaries. Usually, I can "live life on life's terms" and assemble a plate--but having the backup meal in the bag is extra insurance, just in case. It came in very handy on Saturday. I'm glad I was prepared!

I enjoyed a good visit with my youngest daughter and three of my grandkids Sunday evening. It was a good visit all the way around. We don't turn every visit into a photoshoot--so I don't have pics, but it was a great visit. I'm blessed and beyond grateful!

Gratitude continues to be a daily focus for me. One of my guides along this road has challenged me to explore three NEW gratitudes each day. Three NEW ones each day!! Twenty-one new gratitudes each week!! Let me tell you--it has been a beautiful experience. I highly recommend placing gratitudes in a prominent position each day. It's going very well for me.

Where would I be without the counsel of trusted mentors along this road? I wouldn't be here writing this, I guarantee that!

My morning foundational routine was complete this morning in the 4am hour with the birds singing a peaceful soundtrack. For me, it's the perfect setting to connect with my daily plan practice and mentally, emotionally, and spiritually prepare for another day. One more day!

    Hi Sean, I haven't commented for a long, long time... but I still check your blog regularly and it's one of the things that I'm very grateful for. Since you were mentioning gratitude, I felt like I should let you know. I'm still working on my own weight issue, and your photographs of what you eat are really helpful to me. I love the simplicity and healthiness of your eating style, and you help me wade through all of the contradictory diet theories out there and remember to just keep it simple (and tasty). Kudos to you for staying the course for so long, and remember that you likely inspire a lot more people than you realize, since I'm sure there are others like me who just don't comment much. Best wishes to you, and also to your dear mom and the rest of your lovely family. It's hard to believe someone as young-looking as you has so many grandchildren!


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Thank you for your support!
