It's the small things.

Here's my list of successes for the week.

-Scale budged down .2. Yep, you heard me. And I'll take that. When you only have 12 left to lose, the body fights. Well, mine does.

-Fit back into BOTH pairs of my fave jeans. One are a size 8 Lucky's that I can comfortably wear now & the other a pair of Eddie Bauer jeans that by all rights are "mom" style with high waist but I LOVE them. So comfy & so flattering.

-Comments about me looking skinny.

-Doing EVERYTHING right. Even on a day that I decided to give into cravings & emotional eating, I realized at the end of the day, it was no where near my old definition of that. It was still portioned (by total accident.)

-Worked out every day.

-Did a 5 mile run today. My first long run in two weeks & I still found my groove. And oddly enough, that groove was a little quicker than my usual pace. Felt SO good.

-I am spending my saturday doing grocery shopping, washing bedding, cleaning the kitchen, etc & am enjoying myself. Why? Because I love my life.

It's the small things, isn't it? Not the big mile markers (those are fabulous too) but the little things that add up still make our hearts just as happy.

Have you found the blessings in the little things? Acknowledged something trivial knowing it was a successful moment?

I dare you.

It's definitely the small things...big things tend to happen far between (not few and far-just far, hehe) so...if we don't already, we need to appreciate the small things. My favorite small thing this week--the boyfriend said I looked cute in the dress I was wearing. It's been awhile since I've gotten a compliment! Guess lay-off tees and shorts get old after awhile ;-)

Hope you're enjoying the weekend!

You sound so happy and I love it! The little thigns are the best. This weekend was a milestone bday but instead of a party it was nice to wake up to a great brakfast with the hubs, opening my bday cards, and just spending the day relaxing just the two of us - it wasn;t fancy but it meant a lot to me.

I have to agree with you, Heather! Thanx for reminding me to look at the small things ... I have been overwhelmed with some home-related issues and I need to look at what IS good! Spending time with you & Kevin Friday nite is definitely one of the good things! So glad we got around to it ~~ and look forward to that lunch we are going to have after your honeymoon!
