Continuing to work on busting through my plateau.

Thursday, August 18, 2011

I started a new eating plan three days ago and am now entering day four. I'm doing good and feeling good. I will weigh myself at the end of the week and see if I've managed at last to break through this plateau that I've been stuck on for ever. I feel like I have at least shifted things around, if not eliminated some as my clothes are fitting a little differently. Perhaps that wishful thinking, but even wishes come true in their time. *grin*

I pulled some pickling onions and gathered the few cucumbers that managed to be produced in my garden and bought some cauliflower yesterday. Canning sweet mixed pickles on the agenda for this week. I noticed that more of my beets are ready to be pulled from the garden too. I think I will freeze this batch.

My positives:

Doing well on my new eating plan. Last night is the first time that I cheated on it. We purchased a lovely large box of blueberries and although I was allowed the fruit, I'm thinking that the milk that I had with them was extra. Blueberries just need milk to go with them. I did keep the milk to a minimum, so hopefully didn't mess things up badly.
I'm excited to see the produce from my garden finally at the stage where I am able to harvest some of it. Yummm....fresh carrots.
Had a better sleep last night, woke up with a bit of a crink in my neck...so must have been sleeping hard in a crazy position.
Rain through the night, no need to water the garden manually today.
A hubby, who still willingly, gets up to drive me to work. I have noticed that he is going to bed as early as I do now too!
Being alive...what a blessing.

Have an awesome day. Life is too short to let the little things control you, enjoy being alive.

    Wanda I am proud of you for sticking with the plan and that little bit of milk won't make a difference, there were a couple times I had to eat some bran bud cereal with skim milk to get things moving and it did not make any difference. Sunday I am going to have to make a batch of the soup as Monday I'll start back on the plan for another 2 wks., I am curious to see what my scale says on Sunday morning after being off the plan for a week, I've been pretty careful with my food choices. Tomorrow I am taking DH out to eat for lunch for his birthday, but will be careful. Well lunch dishes are calling to me so guess I'd better go get them done. Have a wonderful evening.

    Personally when I have reached a plateau I find that it helps to change something up. I either change a routine food or a routine exercise. Think of it as rebooting your computer when it slows down.
