I'm always a day behind!
Anyways, yesterday was a pretty good day. It went by pretty fast though. I've noticed that about the days..they get faster and faster and I get slower and slower! Hmmm go figure!
I woke up a little depressed this morning...I haven't been taking my celexa for the past 2 days for personal reasons. I didn't get to go to church yesterday because my back and sciatic nerve were causing me grief. I really wanted to eat chips and dip and other things not diet friendly, however, knowing I'm on this program helped me to abstain from unhealthy choices and instead I prepared a healthy breakfast.
The doctors office called today and wants me to start taking Zocor because my cholesterol level is 116. I don't want to take it, so I will challenge my doctor and if I have not gotten my cholesterol level down somewhat on my own by taking my special vitamins as directed on the bottles, then I will take his prescription. I personally think that cholesterol levels are a nutrition thing as well as a gene thing. The proof will be in the test results.
The day went relatively well, although, I didn't quite get to eat my snack which I had already entered on my food chart because I was too tired and went to bed early.
So far...so good! Praise be to God the Father through the Son for sending His Holy Spirit to guide me in all I do.
Okay, so today I ate a little more than I should, but it's Mother's Day and I still did better than if had been before I began this program.
I woke up feeling great (with the exception of all the regular aches and pains) and there was the wafting fragrance of fresh coffee in the air. I went out to the kitchen and found my son fixing oatmeal and my husband washing up the dishes from last night (he wouldn't let me do them, honest!)
I sat down and my husband poured my coffee and my son served the oatmeal. I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast in the company of two wonderful men, I could only have been happier if my daughter and her clan were here.
For supper (we don't have "lunch" but we eat early on Sundays so it was 2:00 pm when we ate) we had a lovely stew that had slow cooked all the night before with great fluffy dumplings. I ate about 2 cups full, and had 2 of the dumplings...I wanted more, but not only was I full enough, I actually displayed some will power!
at about 5:00 we had a delicious bowl of fresh strawberries with just a dab of organic sugar sprinkled over the top...it was absolutely delightful!
I've spent much of my time today in Sparkpeople on my page and visiting other pages...there is so much to see and do here...I can't begin to catch up much less keep up.
