    Hi BSDers! Hope youre all feeling fine and dandy!
    To use WINDYS word,I feel contented today. And also I resonate with Windys words about sadness in the supermarket,I can feel yearning looking at desserts and biscuits.. the advertising folks have always aimed at making us feel that way. When we let those feelings wash over us and then theyre gone,we get one up on the cynical scary Big Food business,which only cares about making money,not in our good health.
    My positives…
    *~ Its been a lovely wintery-sun Sunday afternoon here
    *~ I love Sky Arts! Im watching Neil Diamonds story and singing along to his great songs! πŸ’œ
    *~ Just had a late lunch,a big garlicky gingery stir fry,delicious!😊😊😊

    Hi friends xx
    My pozzys today..
    .*~ Having a good week so far, Im writing a To Do list every night for the next day,and its really helping me to focus and stay on track,keep moving and watch the carbs!
    *~ Have bought some Christmassy tealights…one is clementine fragrance,the other mistletoe..can’t wait to start using them!
    *~ Loving Sky Arts,lots of good documentaries for old hippies like me,stuck in a 60s/ 70s timewarp!
    Have a Terrific Tuesday or Choose- Day..Choose to be happy,Choose to be kind,Choose to smile,Choose to be YOU x 🌸

    Hello ….. β€˜choose-day’ what a great idea!
    Well it’s been a strange day for me but I do have some positives……

    🧺🧺 Loads of ironing done this morning….. washing will be my treat for tomorrow!
    ⏰⏰Read an interesting idea this morning…… if you are sitting down set your timer for 20 minutes and each time it buzzes move for 20 seconds. Any sort of movement will do. It never fails to amaze me that when I get engrossed in a book or something I can go for hours without moving. This sounds like a positive strategy to me.
    πŸ½πŸ“πŸ₯•πŸ§… And so to dinner …. pot roast chicken thighs with vegetables and chickpeas. This is the first real β€˜winter’ dish I’ve made in a while ….. just 33 days before the days start to get longer again! Roll on the spring!
    Hope Tuesday had been good for you and that Wednesday will be even better!

    Hi V! Well done on the ironing. Do you enjoy it or is it a chore? I dislike ironing as Im not good at it,I seem to create more creases than i iron out! πŸ˜€
    I cant stand the adverts on tv so in the course of an evening I get up and move round each time they come on. Your idea takes it a very useful step further incorporating day time activity..I can get immersed in reading or browsing online,so I’ll give that a go,and slurp some water every 20 mins too. Im getting better at drinking water,since yr previous water drinking tip,but it means I need to go to the bathroom time and time again,which gets exhausting! Does this eventually settle down into less visits!

    Reading the thread has been a breath of fresh air. It’s raining here so my exercise was going shopping.

    We have had to clear two rooms to get decorating, something that we have avoided for years.
    I bought curtains online and they are even better than I hoped. Heavy cotton with a muted red stripe, contrasting with blue grey wallpaper.
    The wallpaper is on the wall and soon we will finish decorating.
    We discovered damp, and resolved it with an airbrick (had we known about it before taking off the wallpaper it would have major stress!)

    My positives for today are:
    A replacement blind finally fitted today having been ordered 1st June!
    Have organised for 30 day free Amazon Prime to USA so I can send gifts to our son and his family for Christmas.
    Another Christmas without seeing them as last year we couldn’t get travel insurance as we were waiting for a diagnosis for hubby. Never mind, I’m SURE 2021 will be better!!!!!!!!!!

    Wonderful to see so many positives being shared here …. and such varied ones too. All wonderfully uplifting! Loving the birthday card message Yowser, not that we should be listening to such possibilities of course🀭.

    Thought I should share a few positives too, so here goes ….
    πŸ‘©β€πŸ¦° drastically changed my hair colour yesterday and although I’m not sure about the result and keep wondering who that woman is in the mirror, OH really likes it.
    πŸ‘–my ‘gauging’ garment still fits … somewhat more snuggly admittedly, but it gives me hope I haven’t gone too far astray whilst away.
    🌞 still plenty of sunshine and blue skies here, it’s cooler, but at least it’s not grey and miserable.

    Please remember to share a positive or two here when you can …. there are so many of us who appreciate it.

    Thanks for all your positives folks! ❀️
    Mine for today….
    *~ So happy today,I managed to reunite a missing cat with his owner.
    The cat had been missing a month and owner was heartbroken and exhausted trying to find him.
    Lovely feeling to make someones day,and bring a pet and owner together again
    *~ Brrr it was wet and very windy when I took a walk today. The wind destroyed my umbrella and I definitely needed glove,which I hadnt brought. But I enjoyed the walk anyway x
    🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢 Its Wednesday,may you find moments that make you smile today 🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢

    Hello everyone. It’s so good to see more of us finding positives even if it seems like scraping the bottom of a barrel at times.
    Sunny what colour is your hair!!!
    Ok so it’s been a miserable day here but there are always positives …..

    πŸ₯•πŸ΅πŸ§… Great soup for lunch today. So pleased I spent a few days last week cooking and freezing because today was definitely a β€˜soup’ day!
    πŸ–₯πŸ–₯ Spent some time today catching up on 2019 Masterchef Australia where the sun seems to shine everyday. Roll on the summer!
    πŸ₯©πŸ₯¦ Meatloaf cooking in the oven as I write and cauliflower and sprouts steaming so dinner almost ready. Tomorrow I’m having a proper β€˜cooking’ day so looking to fill up my new little freezer with even more soup. I’m thinking about Thai style butternut squash soup, a great recipe from BBC Good Food.

    So Thursday is almost upon us, just a couple of days until the weekend, which I think we should still try to celebrate as something special even more so in these unprecedented times. Have a good Thursday.

    Gosh you were up early Yowzer!
    Verano, you are so right, positives are hard to find some days but here goes.
    Last night our little Granddaughter β€˜read’ us a story via FaceTime and our lovely Grandson β€˜played’ the piano. Thank goodness for technology!
    We have started to write the Christmas cards and presents are mainly sorted.
    Made a corned beef hash last night which brought back childhood memories, though I used celeriac and turnip along with onions and the obligatory dash of HP sauce (other brands are available). A bit carbs but worth it!
    And another, I can see a bit of blue sky!

    Know what you mean about weekends still seeming special, Yowser, I feel the same way.

    Thought I’d offer up a few positives…..
    🌞 really beautiful warm sunny day today … we even had a little harbourside picnic in a neighbouring town.
    🧀 in contrast, bought lovely warm fleece lined gloves and snood for chilly rides on the back of OH’s scooter, which is our main transport whilst hereπŸ‡ΉπŸ‡·.
    🍴🍱🍳 made a start on scoping out tiles, kitchen fittings etc for new villa …. still needs consideration, but very exciting!

    Hope there will be positives during your weekend and that you might find a moment to tell us about them … doesn’t matter how small, they all count☺

    Hiiii SUNNY ( waves!) ooh back of the scooter eh! I did that in my Mod days,but I was always terrified! πŸ™‚πŸ™ƒ
    Hope everyone doing ok today x
    *~ ο»Ώ I’m so enjoying seeing early Christmassy things happening,all bets are off this year,the earlier Xmas is here the better IMO… important to keep hold of our traditions,with all these rules /regulations,/restrictions/impositions now in our everyday lives.
    *~ A friend I havent seen or spoken to for a while sent me some news! Shes now got three cats! She took in a little stray,soon noticed cat was pregnant,helped her give birth to five kittens…She has kept two,Leo and Leonie, and Mum,of course,and found good homes for the others.
    *~ Sunny day! Going for a walk down to the river,feed the squirrels and birds on the way! X

    Well done Dawn, it just goes to show that sticking to the plan does work – in most cases!!
    My positives for today are:
    Another vaccine! At last the news programs give more good news than bad.
    We went for a lovely walk around the lanes nearby this morning – the sun was shining, the sky was blue however it was not quiet!!! The cows were mooing, the horses were baying and the birds were singing.

    I feel a bit bad as i havent been in here much recently….. I do enjoy reading the updates and you all make me smile with the positivity. I seem to have big swings at the moment with mindset and having to work quite hard to be positive and get things done. But i have a lot to be grateful for and positive about so here we go!
    – Big annoying horse is home from rehab and the wee spell away has gone as well as it could have so I now need to keep it up with a view to reviewing in March
    – Spent yesterday late afternoon on the beach with little horse, it was so beautiful with the sun low in the sky, which i could share the photos with you but they are as good as you could be imagining!
    – saw a chum for a coffee on Tuesday, lovely catch up and i just had the coffee while she has a scone and jam! go me!
    – Forced myself out on a wee run on Tuesday too….felt good for it, need to keep making myself do active things, it is so worth it!
    – weight is (or was on Saturday) in a good place……. need to push on for goal!! SO close!

    Got a tough couple weeks coming up at work so i’ll pop in here more to make sure I’m remembering to be positive!!

    Morning all,
    Also struggling a bit with mindset and full-on work stress, but I cannot let this de-rail me and start eating everything in sight, as I normally would.
    I am loving the feeling of fitting into clothes I had put to one side because they didn’t fit but I still loved them – I need to hold onto this feeling when I want to eat!
    I am also trying to get my exercise up (from a low baseline of zero, so anything is better than nothing) – yoga on Tuesday, some kettlebell strength work yesterday, will aim for yoga again today to stretch out the muscles I worked yesterday.
    Try to think of at least one positive every day – today I will go with it is turning out to be a beautiful late autumn day here, foggy but bright and very crisp.

    Well done on just having the coffee WindyJulz! You can do this!

    Lovely to see you V! x
    My positives for today
    *~ I feel like Ive got my head round β€œfood = nourishment not treats. Treats are non food related”! Last time I got into this headspace was when I went on to lose lots of weight,so Im clinging onto being in and staying in the zone!
    *~ Feeling nice and full,seem to have got the fat/ protein/ carbs ratio correct for me,as Im not hungry. Long may that last!
    *~ I must have too much time on my hands! Just written Xmas cards from our family cat to my sisters cats and to my friends dog! HEHE! I appreciate having time on my hands..soooo many people out working hard every day and longing for the Christmas break. Im so lucky!
    *~ Decembers nearly here…wwwwooooooooohoooooooooooo! 🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢🎢

Ive saved them up til now,tho I dont know why,and Im snuggled down enjoying them with a cuppa.Theyre the magazines ive seen in marks but never bought..not the β€œ womens β€œ magazines,but the ones about health and spirituality.
    *~ Just received some lovely photos of Beaus grandchildren decorating their Christmas tree and wearing christmassy jumpers. I keep saying it but Christmas really is early this year and Im glad,tho most years i wd be tutting its too soon!
    *~ Nice things in the post today,some little finishing touches for DD and SILs xmas stockings.

    Happy Sunday everyone.
    I have resisted putting up the tree and decorations but will start 1st December , which is very early for me.
    DD and SIL are coming up to stay with us for Christmas so I don’t have to drive down south on the very crowded and gridlocked motorways! It’s a great relief for me as Hubby isn’t able to drive anymore but now I need to set to and plan menus and food shopping.
    I must resist β€˜trying’ the goodies!!!!

    So, how do you learn to prioritize? Here are some key questions you need to ask yourself:
    What’s currently getting watered and why?
    Is it enough?
    What’s thriving, and what’s withering?
    What weeds have snuck into your garden?
    How much time, money, and/or energy does this β€œplant” need from me to stay alive? How about to thrive?”

    Yes it’s December 1st tomorrow and normally we just send advent calendar’s to our grandchildren, however a change is afoot!
    Our son sent us two! One is a fancy gin a day and the other a boozy chocolate a day.
    It took me precisely one second to decide that I will indulge, enjoy them and not feel guilty. However I will share them with Hubby so we will either have the chocolate or the gin.
    Surely just one won’t be that bad though I suspect many of you with stronger will power than me would disagree!

    Hello
    Busybee ….. just go for it! Life’s too short to be deprived of every β€˜ray of sunshine’ no matter what form they come in. Moderation!
    Just a few positives for me ……
    December tomorrow and my birthday month ….. not sure if that really is a positive!
    Feeling much brighter after a couple of low weeks.
    Looking forward to 2021 …. surely it has to be better than 2020 …. and now only 32 days to go!
    Have a positive Tuesday.
    P.S. Sunny is there any chance of you getting back to the UK? Maybe you will just have to stay on permanent holiday ……….
