Realizations and reminders. We have them all the time. Tonight I had couple.

1. That I still have to be cautious of my portion sizes. Most times I am but at restaurants it can be easy to slip. Tonight I ordered prime rib for dinner 12 oz., stopped the waitress before she even walked away and changed that to the smaller 8oz. meal. I’m proud of myself for doing that and this serves as a good reminder to always think twice when I order.

2. Some of that “alone time” and solitude I’ve realized I need for my sanity can be found at the gym. The last 6 weeks I’ve been out of my groove with going to ClubSport. I wading of town for 2 1/2 weeks…had a kidney infection for another and then got overwhelmed with life. The very thing I gave up in that overwhelmed time (ClubSport) would have helped immensely. Tonight I FELT that firsthand. Got my butt back there and did a good weight training workout. I was alone in my own mind…working out…exerting energy…releasing endorphines…clearing my mind. It was just what I needed! Good reminder to myself.

One thing I am trying to do on this journey is be open for new learning, realizations and discoveries. I feel I am doing that. One moment at a time.

What realizations have you had lately?
