I have had a good day. We had the grandchildren today and really enjoyed. them.
We took Alyssa and got her a bike. A pink one with sparkles. She said are we going to have cake and balloons? She thought it was someones birthday. Nathan has a new bike that he has not learned how to ride yet. He is too interested in the wheels turning and won't watch where he is going. Since I am eating real food I am not as hungry it seems. What I eat last a long time. Who knew. I should have known better than eating all that processed foods. I know you need to eat as clean as you can but I get side tracked sometimes and buy into all the hipe we have thrown at us everywhere. I fixed us roasted vegetables for supper it was wonderful. I had 1/2 zucchini, 1/2 portabella mushroom, whole red bell pepper, about six slices of butternut squash, 1/2 turnip, small sweet potato and 1/2 cup of lentils, 1/2 ear of corn, and 2 carrots. All of that was oiled with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic added. I was about to pop but was it good. I can't understand why I would even consider a little dinner in a box. Why do we get swayed with ever fad that comes along. We know healthy eating and exercise is the only way. Oh well I need to go and rest up for tomorrow and all that healthy eating I will be doing. I excited to see if the scales will change this week.

I weighted again this morning. Nothing. I have not lost a pound in two weeks. I have been thinking maybe I am making muscles or I'm eating too many processed foods. I started looking and I seem to be eating a lot of them. I started cutting back some. I would eat a dinner for lunch and then eat a home cooked meal at night. I am eating a lot of sugar free mints, sugar free drinks, dinners in the little trays, sugar free puddings, stripped bread, stripped milk, butter spray, etc. Have you looked at the ingredients in some of this stuff. You would have to have a degree in Lord knows what to understand what most of it is. You know the liver does not need all those chemicals. I was looking at egg beaters and they are full of stuff. Everything I looked at had too many chemicals.
I went and bought me some sprouted bread, oatmeal bread, and another loaf of home made bread with no preservatives or nothing artificial. I will start cooking like I use to when my husband and I first got married almost 40 years ago. We had no weight problems and felt wonderful. We probably are killing ourself or at least poisoning ourselves by wanting everything to be quick and easy. It really does not take very long to cook peas, beans, rice, roasted vegetables, etc. Last night I roasted us some carrots, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, cooked greens and lentils and we had a feast. My husband wanted a baked pork chop and I fixed it to go with the vegetables for him. I am going to start making my own pudding and snack bars and doing the cooking like I use too. I am going to eat a real egg, use a little butter, a teaspoon is enough usually, eat real bread. See just what all I can start eating that is clean, wholesome food. Well enough of my ranting. I'm scared to death eating all that healthy food I'll blow up. I don't see how when I'm counting and measuring everything.
