Not because I have it all together, heck I’m so far from all together it isn’t funny. I’m doing the happy dance because you guys commented, you guys had some ideas, you guys gave me support. You guys are amazing. Thank you so much.
Now day one went great with no cold/hot cereal and no bread. It was/is hard. Today isn’t any better however I thought a bit ahead and bought some banana’s, yogurt, cottage cheese and sweet peppers yesterday so have a little more go to stuff. So breakfast was a banana and yogurt and lunch was two cut up sweet peppers and cottage cheese. I am thinking soup for supper though don’t have time for homemade but do have two cans of healthy choice chicken and something and there’s a tiny bit of salad left.
For now the only things I’m going to even try and do is keep cereal and bread out of my diet and move my butt more. I’m not going to tackle anything else until I know I can skip that oh so yummy cold cereal and toast.
Marc took some time to email me a few words and that was the one that had me thinking. All of your comments were awesome, but Marc’s stood out and all day long yesterday I thought about it. He pointed out a couple things to me that I just couldn’t see beyond my fat. I am not a lazy, eat everything wrong, don’t take care of myself person. I just needed to see some good.
So it’s on, not a real diet, but it’s on. Learning to listen to my body, getting what I need and doing what I do best and that’s taking care of and helping others and working as hard as I can.
Suzi told me that I could copy some of her meals because making up a menu way ahead of time just isn’t for me. But she usually has the same stuff in her kitchen that I do or should I say I have the same as her…..anyways, I’m just going to take a few of her meals and work with them.
It’s a start, it’s step in the right direction. And tonight, it’s suppose to be near 25* (this morning when I got up it was –20 and I wasn’t not in the least bit thrilled) so Mike and I are going for a walk. We can’t get on the trails yet so we’ll just walk around his town and just enjoy the warmth. Going to take the dogs too because I’m not the only round one in this family, Wilbur is getting there too.
Blessing my friends. This is the day the Lord hath made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. I’m trying, hope you can too.
