On Wednesday I was complaining about the heat and humidity, This morning I stepped out on the porch and I thought I was in late October!! The air was so crisp that I thought if I yawned the air would make a sound like I bit into a crisp crunchy apple!! I watched a robin pull a worm from the rich good earth seemed to me the morning dew moistened the earth so the worm was very easy to pull out! When the earth is so dry the little robins bob there heads so many times to get the worm out!!
When things are going just right in life my healthy eating and cooking is like the moist earth so easily to obtain, but when the grind of certain situations in life encounter I have a hard time maintaining that healthy life style I to have to pull and tug to be on track!

Yesterday morning when I stepped out on my porch in the early morning hours, the humidity sucks in my breath,just like when I do certain exercises that take my breath away, from lack of working out. I duck back in the house to take a gulp of the air conditioned air. Wow that is bad out there I better stay in today so I do not get heat stroke!!
Okay what a lam excuse sounded good to me. I drag my body back to the bedroom yank the socks on tie the shoes & go out to be over come by the heat and humidity. I decide to go the route that has a tree covering like a huge umbrella. I have to walk in the sun at first to get there, oh gosh I made it . Along the way I hear the early morning birds singing cheerily to me, I hear a splash in the water from a fish jumping mid air to catch his morning meal. I hear the sounds of a motor boat going down to catch their evening supper. Mr. woody wood pecker is drilling in the tree for his morning meal. A grasshopper munching away. An airplane over head no doubt taking someone to an exotic island, gee wish I was up their with my luggage packed to catch the breeze from an island!! The smells from the forest have that sweet earthly smell!!
My mind wonders all over the place as I go about my walk, and before you know it I am back at home, standing under the shower with eyes closed pretending the water that is cascading down my body is a waterfall at an exotic island. For some reason I do not feel as plump as I did when I started out!
It is amazing how we can talk our selves into doing something we did not want to do, but feeling oh so good when we accomplish it!!!

Okay I know it is summer time the picnics , & family reunions. Saturday went to an awesome bistro with the most healthiest food made from all fresh food and herbs. felt so good after that meal not bloated just comfortable. THEN I went to the dessert counter and took home 1 large cookie & 6 small ones wrapped in some sort of nuts. I thought I would stretch them out for a week, I ate them all that night with a tall glass of ice cold milk!!
Then Sunday the family reunion, yes I over did it!!
Let me tell you how my insides felt, I became very tired, I felt bloated, my mind was wrestling with myself,compared to last week when my food I ate was so healthy and not having this awful feeling. An over abundance of carb's & sugar wrecked havoc out of me. You know what I would have done before, I would have been mad at my self and got up today and still would have ate unhealthy, because I would feel bad for what I did , and throw in the towel as they say.
This morning NO WAY took the negatives and I am giving it another shot to develope a more clearee picture of my eating habits!!

Life is like a camera focus on what is important ,capture the good times Develop from the negatives and if things do not work out just take another shot
I had gone to another family picnic yesterday after work, and you already know what I devoured with out naming any one food item!! I felt like a total over sized blimp arriving home. I sat in my recliner having the gall to feel sorry for myself when no one at the party pried my mouth opened and shoveled the food in like a locomotive needing steam to keep on chugging along.
I woke up this morning , still feeling like an over stuffed Thanksgiving dinner from the abundance of food I ate on Saturday, I went on my sparks and read the message Barbiee52 posted on my page regarding the camera. I just had to post what she sent me , something clicked in my brain, ( thanks so much Barb ) I carry a camera with me where ever I go ,never relating it to my soulful self when feeling down about my weight and wanting to give up. Did someone ever give you that ahhh moment !!
I have to work today,and knowing I had to eat something to fuel my body it was a small healthy breakfast. I work 5 hours today with no lunch , I would have come home and ate big ,because I would be so hungry. I am taking some protein in today for a snack instead of eating nothing, I would have never had breakfast because of the way I feel, but I am giving it another shot! Thanks to Barb for making me see the negative and developing it into another shot

Every single time I am on a roll I feel within the very depth of my soul I am going to conquer, I am so on the game. I know I am not the only one, I have read the same thing over and over from others " I am starting over" I have said that myself a zillion times. What is with some of us. I once thought in a fleeting moment," gee if I do this what happens if I can not maintain it, so what is the use " I thought am I afraid of failure once I get there, of back sliding? I only thought that for a few seconds,but is that what is really holding me back?Then I have an awesome cousin Tammy that is out there every day eating clean, and working out, plus running races, she works full time has a family,but still does it.
I feel so super when I am working out, and eating so very very healthy then all of a sudden I stop like a bolt of lightning struck me, sure I let fleeting moments crop in my brain and say get back up, but bam a clap of thunder in my brain knocks me unsteady . Then after so much time passes I waddle up like duck and get going once again, until I am down again. I am sick of starting over, I want to be that person that can eat healthy and work out not just for a few weeks,but all the time. I know it is not realistic to have that 365 days a year , but if I do slip I want to be right back instead of lingering and struggling for days or weeks to get back!
