But it is Day One. So, you know…
The yoga was great today, the smoothie* was tasty, and water-coffee balance was achieved. I feel better just having this one day of healthier behaviors under my belt, and, apart from a two-cookie incident mid-afternoon when I got a little stress-y, I felt calm and centered and less tight-faced. When my husband got home, I had enough good energy to greet him in a nice-ish sort of way, instead of being snarly and eye-rolly. Clearly, this made family dinner time much more pleasant.
My little family really moves around me; my moods determine how our entire home feels. So, if I want our home to be a place of joy and love and kindness and humor and sweet, sweet baked goods, that all has to start with me.
Especially the baked goods. Right?
*Smoothie consisted of a lovely and random combination of 1/2 a banana, a handful of frozen mango chunks, a goodly splash of milk, a few spoonfuls of yogurt, cinnamon, a teaspoon of honey, and two big fistfuls of spinach. Awesomely green and yummy!
