Today is a beautiful Autumn Day! The sun is shining & the sky is so blue, you would think you could swim in it?! I am here at work with my pervobial "brown paper bag" lunch. The thing is, there is no bag, not for this Girl! I actually am more of a container girl. Meaning, I like these put in there proper places. Bread with bread, fruit with fruit, so on & so on. Today, I have a slice of ham & two slices of cajun turkey on honey wheat bread, cream & whole corn mixed with apple slices. I can take the apple slices & eat throughout the day & feel like I have done something right. I mean, I still have a piece of mini chocolates on my desk but that's not the problem, its the chewy sweet Tootsie Roll Dots gum drop which seem to be my BIGGEST problem!! But I am learning to bring a serving or two instead of two whole packs. Spark has helped add more fruits & veggies, no let me stop, Spark helped ADD fruits & veggies daily to my diet. I looked at those items as occassional treat to be had at dinner. Now instead of a Wendy's single with cheeseburger with fries & a small frosty, I have a whole or half sandwich on wheat breat or honey wheat. I always try to bring my veggies & fruit with me for lunch. Now I laugh to myself because I am now teaching my sons that they should have veggies everyday a couple of times a day alone or with meal. So my question is, Is my food for thought or comfort food becoming way too healthy?! You decide . . . December 11th my goal date to be at my ideal weight but I am learning to love my body in a way that can't be put into words! If I was obsessed before then you have no ideal, how obsessed I am now!
God bless & See you there!
