Today I introduced Mantra Monday to the GOAD message board What's your Mantra?
I have to admit that my mantra of "No mindless eating," lasted until about 10:30am. My office mate made peanut butter kiss cookies with a group of residents this morning. Unfortunately, those are one of my favorite cookies and the four cookies that were left did not last long in our office. I shall do better throughout the rest of the week. No mindless eating! The rest of the day was great and I have ended the day with plenty of points, so I'm not worried, but it sure does urk me when I give in to the mindless eating. I have to keep reminding myself that it is not a sprint rather a marathon and if I want a cookie I can have one. It's eating four in one sitting that is not quite a wise choice.
I don't think I've mentioned, but I take care of a guinea pig at our nursing home. We had a guinea pig for over 8 years and "Peanut" passed away in early August. We got a new "baby" guinea pig on September 7. "Misty" was only 6-7 weeks old when we got her...Halloween, she had a baby. I had no idea guinea pigs could have babies so young and the pet store owners were quite surprised as well. Our baby happened to be a boy, so today we had to return him to the pet store. We traded him in for a girl and "Misty" is definitely showing her new cage mate who is boss. I'm hoping our two guinea pigs can get along as it was terribly noisy today as they "got-to-know" each other.
