So, hubby left a voice mail during his bus duty (we're both teachers and both doing summer school now). Said, in coded words, of course, that he was thinking some wine with dinner- and after dinner, too- sounded good. I listened as I was driving our cranky 4 year old around to get her to sleep, and talked myself into it, even though I wasn't even thinking about it. We talked and he had backed down, but I talked him INTO it again! He was doing errands and was going to buy it. After a few deep breaths-made nicer because of the sleeping child in the backseat-I picked up my phone to tell him to forget it, we don't need it. Just then, he called me telling me the same thing! We got home, made cups of TEA for crying out loud, and feel so proud of ourselves!
We had fallen into a pattern of relieving a bad day-or just a DAY in some cases-with wine, especially since Mom died. We're trying to get back into a healthy groove. Today, we're one step closer!

Wow, I just finished a strength training routine generated by SP. I haven't done any strength training since December and I feel great! When I looked at the routine I thought no way would it be at all effective....it seemed so easy. Well, was I wrong! I have noodle arms and legs, LOL! My 4 year old daughter kept coming in and praising me! What more motivation could I possibly need?!
I can do this. I can and will make myself as healthy and vibrant as I possibly can. Fit feels good!

Seriously, today was day 4 and all Ive been thinking about is FOOD! What can I eat next, when can I eat next, etc. It's like when I do the points system on Weight Watchers! I quit!!!!! My husband and I had chicken thighs (yes, people, THIGHS!!!!!) with bulgur (a carb!! OMG!!!!!), hummus, baba ganoush, kalamatas, whole wheat pita, and white wine for dinner. You know what? It was really, REALLY good!!!
I'm going to do this on my own, with the help of SP. I can and will be able to manage this.

Well, today is my big day.....day 1 of SBD. I have really been looking forward to this new beginning. I weighed in this morning (265....highest in over a year...ouch!) and took some body measurements. At leaast none of the numbers will ever be that large again!

Tomorrow I start the South Beach Diet. I'm looking forward to it. I've been at such a standstill since Mom died. Well, I guess it's not a standstill since I've gained about 20 pounds. It's more of a backslide! I know it's normal that an emotional eater would turn to food upon the death of their mother. But it has still been frustrating as well as frightening. I do NOT want to end up back where I started or even heavier. So, I'm excited about starting a new program.
Hubby just said to me, "You mean there's no cereal on phase 1?! What do I eat for breakfast?" I reminded him that I was the one doing this. He is under no obligation to give up the refined carbs. He was quite relieved then began pouring honey on his bowl of sweetened cereal............he's so cute!
