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.
Daily AEIOU Plus Y and G
A – Appetite
Breakfast – Apple
Lunch – Salmon with kale
Snack – Carrots
Dinner – Steamed chicken with vegetables
E – Exercise
I’m trying to do one hour a day of cardio. Three days in, so far so good! Yesterday I walked for an hour with the hubby.
I – Myself
Well, I cleaned like a mofo. I just wanted to have a clean and clutter-less apartment. I feel more creative and better when my outside space is as calm and tranquil as my inner space.
O – Others
I went to my first General Service Meeting for my recovery program. Wow, that was something. I’m taking over my friend’s commitment while she is in Europe.
U – Uncover Feelings (what was the predominant feeling you had yesterday? And what could you do better?)
I felt determined yesterday both with organizing and cleaning and with making sure I got more exercise. I felt very motivated and energized.
What I could have done better and seems to be a problem for me is have more faith. The screenplay for my life has already been written. I don’t need to figure anything out. (Sorry stole that from Marc Maron).
Y- Yahoo (what was the highlight of my day yesterday)
The walk with my hubby and having him be so excited to see his wife actually pick up a mop.
G- Gratitude (List 3 things you are grateful for)
I’m grateful for my program, I’m grateful for willingness, I’m grateful for solutions, I’m grateful for my higher power
