So far so good. My hubby and are I going to a friend's house tonight to watch the hockey game, and I know there will be a lot of delectable goodies there. My plan is to eat a nutritious dinner at home, bring my water bottle along, sit as far away from the food as possible, and I'm bringing a homemade spinach dip (made with yogurt) with veggies for me and sourdough for everyone else. I've also entered in a mini-cupcake to my nutrition tracker. That works as long as I just have one.....I've got this!!
I got my hair cut yesterday; I went wild and got bangs! I probably haven't had bangs since I was eight. I love them when my hair is straight, but it'll be interested what happens after I wash it and it goes super curly again. Guess I'll find out tomorrow!
I'm heading out for a hike in the snow with my dog. We went two days ago, and it's amazing how much harder walking in the snow makes it. That's good, my butt needs it!

I've had a sore hip lately. Not joint pain, but like tight muscle pain. Anyways, that motivated me to dig out some exercises I learned from my physiotherapist a few years ago for the same hip problem and to start stretching on a more regular basis. That means stretching every day versus stretching maybe once a month.
I discovered that I can no longer touch my toes! I was shocked! I swear even just a year ago I could. My husband, who NEVER stretches, can touch his forehead to his shins and grab the back of his ankles. What??!! So, that is my new goal. Well, that and to make this hip pain go away. Even after just a few days of my new stretching program, it's way better. My goal date for touching my toes is going to be September 22.
Oh yeah, and holy smokes, is Coach Nicole ever flexible!!

So far so good. I haven't felt deprived, it's amazing how filling and nutritious real food is. I have had a couple of really bad headaches, which I am prone to anyways, and have been kind of grumpy and impatient (also naturally prone to....lol). I think it is just my body having withdrawals from the sugar, preservatives, chemicals and crap in the junk food I had been eating. On the plus side though, my skin is already looking better. I'm going to write out my meal plans for the next few days when I'm done writing this.
Two challenges that I anticipate coming up are 1. Hubby comes home today and we tend to eat worse together. It's time to change that and eat healthy together. 2. BBQ at a friend's house on Sunday. I'm bringing my own veggie burger and a giant mixed green salad. I might even bring some watermelon to have for desert so I can stay away from the birthday cake. The challenges I will be facing there are friends saying things like, "You only live once", "Just have a small piece". Well, I am going to put my earplugs in and just nod and smile.
I haven't been exercising at the intensity I would like. I've been having vertigo from Meniere's the last few days and I'm grateful that the attacks have been small and I've been able to move around at all. I'm always so worried that they'll turn into a big one and I'll be in bed for a week. YUCK!
I'm just going to keep on truckin'!
