February 18th, 2020 Made The Best Of It
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, and I’ve stayed well connected with exceptional support.
I was able to get mom out for an outing on Sunday afternoon/evening, but it was super challenging, as expected. Between her decreased strength that makes her a constant fall risk and the always fluctuating brain fog, it was clearly a different experience for both of us. It was worth it despite the challenges because she needed to see the outdoors. She wasn’t real thrilled with settling for a ride but we made the best of it by visiting Courtney, Noah, Oliver, and Phoebe.
I left work early yesterday with flu-like symptoms. I focused on more rest and taking it easy. I feel better this morning–maybe not 100%, but well enough to go to work. I’ll reserve the right to leave early if needed and if the symptoms persist, I’ll get to the doctor. I didn’t visit mom yesterday because of this but we did speak several times. I noticed some confusion again but not the worst it’s been.
My morning foundational routine is complete. This practice of prayer, meditation, gratitude, positive visualizations, and affirmations make a huge difference for me.
I hope to have a better day today. Thank you for reading and I hope your Tuesday is a good one, too!

For me, it’s simply a daily reminder to be open, willing, mindful, to pause, and to be intentional. If I’m not those things, I get stuck at the line of least resistance and back there is where the old patterns and behaviors thrive. Your order includes priority shipping so you’ll get it quickly!
