I find that it is important every day to review the day before and write down everything I ate, what I did well and what I didn’t do well. In order to have healthy self worth, having self awareness is very important. I log everything I’ve eaten the day before to make sure I’m eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and that I’m staying away from dangerous processed foods and sugar. Upon reviewing my day I know if I need to make an amends to anyone because having self worth means you’re accountable for your words and actions. I also see where I can do better the next day as well as congratulate myself for things I have done well.
I encourage everyone in the comments section to write down their daily temperature.

30 minutes on the bike, that is all my knee would allow. What Am I 80?!

I relaxed last night and watched Grumpy Cat on American Idol and I’m slightly ashamed to admit that.
O – Others
I gave my friend a cake at a meeting. I helped a friend with her men problems.
U – Uncover Feelings (what was the predominant feeling you had yesterday? And what could you do better?)
I was a bit anxious yesterday about my health plus I left my phone at home and that made me really off. Crazy how we’re so tied to our technology. Meditation and getting out of myself by helping others helped the anxiety.
I could have had more faith yesterday. And I could have had more patience with people and myself.
Y- Yahoo (what was the highlight of my day yesterday)
The morning meeting and giving my friend a cake.
G- Gratitude (List 3 things you are grateful for)
I’m grateful for having spiritual tools to survive life, I’m grateful for my recovery, I’m grateful for God and for my husband
