Day Thirty-Seven

Where did I leave my brain
Well I'm not sure, but its a good thing I planned ahead. It seems like some days just go downhill the minute I first get up. First the bread that I bought just 3 days ago, was all moldy, so the lunch I had planned had to be scratched. We ended up having a great lunch, thanks to the healthy options I had in my freezer. When I went to the store to shop for food for the week I forgot to make a grocery list, and it pretty much went the way I expected. I bought alot of things I didn't plan to buy but I'm kinda glad it worked out this way. I got some things this week that are different, than my usual fare. I made a Turkey Wrap for dinner, then a banana, peanut butter wrap for dessert. It was just yummy. My lesson for today, plan ahead for a quick meal when things go wrong. Don't be afraid to to try something new. Healthy is just good. I love this life.

Day Thirty-Six

Today was my weigh in day, I lost 1 pound and I was hungry all day. I wonder if I should have told my body. Tomorrow I will just have to get control. I only went 6 points over and I rarely use my extra points, so I should be good.
What I learned today... hang on, if it takes me one year to lose the weight it takes most people 6 months to lose... then I have had 6 extra months of learning to live healthy, so it should be good.

Day Thirty-Five

New Habits
I decided if I was going to change my eating habits, and my fitness habits then I needed to change some of my personal habits. I am cleaning my house more, I am finding things to do besides sitting around watching TV, and I am doing things I have never done. One thing at a time. Today I planted a Topsy Turvy!!! I did eat more of my points, but I really pushed it today. Now if I actually get tomatoes to grow that will be a first. Yea! And they taste good too.

Day Thirty-Four

If it would quit raining, I could go outside and go for a brisk walk.
If I could go for a brisk walk, I would lose more weight.
If I could lose more weight I would feel better about things.
If things were better I would....
So this is what I need to remember
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...It's learning to dance in the rain!!!"

Day Thirty-Three

Happy Cinco De Mayo!
I celebrated with a Taco Salad and it was yummy! So far I haven't eaten anything that tasted like diet food, in fact I have enjoyed my meals so much more lately. I don't think my husband has complimented my food nearly as much as he has in the last month. I am glad I can celebrate the holidays the same way I used to, just healthier, and more filling.
I am not back walking yet, (because of my toe) and I can't force my self to get on the Recumbent Bike. I really wish I had someone that would push me just a little, sometimes it just gets old doing this on my own.
I got on the scale this morning, what has it even been 24 hours since I set a goal of weighing only once a week, I am going to have to try harder tomorrow and the day after that. Geeze, this is challenging, someday I will be perfect. Naw, that is never going to happen.

Day Thirty-Two

My weigh in day is Friday, and here it is Monday and I have already started to worry about the numbers on the scale. That's me the one starring at the scale with my finger in my mouth. I want to be able to get past fearing the scale, but I am afraid it is going to take me a while. A scale addict I am not. I look at the scales some mornings and when I do weigh, and it is up a pound or two, I am afraid the next day. When I weigh and I loose several pounds, then I fear the next day I will gain it back. I do not want to too get to involved with that appliance, but I want to use it to measure my success. So my goal for May is weigh only once a week.

Day Thirty-One

Not feeling to good today so this will be short and sweet. I think one of the most important things that I need to improve on is including more fiber.
My goal for this week eat at least 35 grams of fiber a day.
I also would love to lose 2 more pounds.
Water, Fiber, Food and Fun Whoo Hoo!
