Finish each day and be done with it

Bday girl - Age 27

This week:

Birthday - I turned 27.  Went out for an Italian dinner and had two desserts to celebrate.  Got some sweet gifts from friends and family and I am very grateful for all the Birthday wishes, and for all the family and friends in my life.  :)

Workouts - Poor aka none.  Walked quite a bit around downtown Chicago for a commute/errands.  Moving on...

Food - Started counting/logging my daily calories and was amazed that on my first day of counting I ate 2,500 in ONE day!  I'm aiming to eat 1,500 day.

NEW Goals - Eat 1,500 cals/day;  stay active daily; hope to burn 300/day

Exhibit A
Overall, this week I was pretty lazy and overindulgent.  My exercise and food goals didn't go as planned. 

Exhibit B

But when life gives you lemons, turn them into lemonade, drink it and be done with it -- or as Ralph Waldo Emerson put it,  "Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."

Song of the moment....
