The internet is great...I found out the origins of the expression "pie in the sky," and I blogged this morning thinking it was "pi in the sky."
Anyhow it is from a song long ago that criticized the Salvation Army and the expression "pie in the sky" referred to getting your reward in heaven.....
Well, I said I wasn't making any pi in the sky plans....and dieting is about the here and now and hopefully making the here and now lasting longer as we will be healthier (we hope).
I am not making any lofty plans and diagrams of exactly how much I will weigh in a certain amount of time because becoming healthier is doing things one day at a time and I think keeping my sights down to earth will help me to "stay grounded" and concentrate on each day and each minute of the day instead of "next year" or whenever I become the "perfect weight." For now, I know I feel better from increasing my exercising and I am not going to try to change everything all at once...just work on a few goals and gradually add better habits to get me on the road to being healthier.
