Donut Hole Queen
by Sharol Liepe
Everyone morning I thank God for my sleep and another day. My mornings like yesterdays start up session responses has become routine. I'm looking forward to making some adjustments ha, ha!
Let's see I wake up, make my coffee, read my daily inspirational and pray ~ that will stay the same. Then while I wait for the sun to wake up so I can exercise and walk, as I'm usually up between 4:30 and 5, I sit and read or write or watch the morning show all the while drinking coffee and eating donut holes.
In the winter with the sunrise in Michigan being almost 9 o'clock that was a whole lot of coffee and donuts ha, ha. I call myself a 'chair potato' but despite my bad habits I've lost 40 pounds and still losing and although I exercise everyday I have all this sagging skin and the doctor says it from weight loss. Now that it's spring I'll only have about 3 hours to indulge in my bad habits before I start my day ha, ha.
So I think changing my morning might help but doing household chores in the morning would mean nothing to do in the afternoon. Oh yeah an any suggestions for 3:00 o'clock napping habit? (ha, ha)
I could whine and complain about all the stuff that's been happening (it's a lot) and how retirement is not all that hoped it would be but reading about others makes me grateful for what I have. Sure I wish I could just take off on vacation, just do my thing, live my life, but right now I have responsibilities and people who depend on me and you know what that's okay.
Every once in a while I have what I call my 'Pity Party' where I allow myself 10 minutes (I set the oven timer) to cry, complain, rant, or feel sorry for myself but when the buzzer goes off I turn on my music and sing and dance crazy with my dog Abbey barking away until I collapse in the chair laughing.
I am willing to try new things and so ready to break all my bad habits so keep the suggestions coming and hopefully the next time I post I'll be able to say "One bad habit broken I haven't had a donut hole in a days."
