5 Things I'm Proud of #10

I can't believe I've had 10 "5 Things I'm Proud of". That's 50 things I've been consciously proud of this year, it's a funny concept, a big change. I'm so used to always listing the negatives, what a difference a shift in focus makes. Last night I had a lapse, caught a reflection of myself in the mirror zoned in on my thighs and started down the path of doom of gloom. But I stopped before the words escaped. There's power in this being proud thing, so onwards......

1. Sticking at these lists, it's working, and life is looking a hell of a lot better for it.

2. Not bailing on The Terrier or Team Absolute Abs, despite the torrential rain

3. Walking, walking , walking which really helps the thinking, thinking, thinking.

4. Continuing to eat slowly, and maybe even getting a little better at it.

5. Officially being part of the D-man's life, I hope I can teach him half as much as what I'm sure he'll teach me.

  1. have a great weekend, B!!
    Im learning from your lists as well.
    your sticking to them.
    and how theyre working.

  2. What a cute little guy! (who is he?)
    If you lived close to me, or I lived close to you, I would have loved to walk with you, and think too.

  3. These lists are such a great idea. I LOVE the walking & thinking; am super big on that too. I'm trying to eat slower as well, that ones a toughie sometimes!

  4. Miz: great weekend to you too, glad my funny little lists help :)

    Nurit: That's my gorgeous godson. Walking with you in spirit is good too!

    Living healthy: Eating slower is hard, but I'm finding food is so much better when I do it.... the fast gorge is losing it's appeal, I never thought that would happen......
