I think this is going to work better if I blog at night, hopefully I will remember more. The down side is that I might be as sleeply as I am now, let's just hope I make sense in this blog.
The biggest thing that happened today was I went shopping with my mother. The only way for me to shop is when someone I know is going or I can talk someone into taking me since I can't drive and there aren't buses in the area. Though I find I am getting strong enough to walk there, so maybe I can change that soon. Anyways, I had no idea how hard it would be to just go shopping again! I got all the things I would need for a salad....I don't remember a time when I liked salad, before this, I would refuse to eat it (I have always been a picky eater). But they are very good for you, and I've read that you can change your taste buds, so I'm trying to talk myself into liking old things I never liked before. I got some good bread, some ham, more of those lowfat ice cream sandwiches, and some spray on butter. But going pass all the things I always loved, like the cookies, was very very hard. To make matters worse, they were giving out samples of scorns... I really like those and they smelled so good....but I didn't even take a sample! go me!
I didn't get anything that would throw my diet off! I'm very proud of myself.
This morning I took another shot at eating yogurt. I don't know what it is about the stuff, but it always makes me gag. I would really like to like it though, it would be great for mornings. I got a new favor at the store today and a different kind, maybe I will like that better. Today's wasn't to bad though, I mixed it with some jam (sugar free) and put up some pieces of prune in it. Still whenever a large amount would touch the back of my mouth I would gag. If this new one doesn't work, I'm going to just start making smoothies with it.
When I went on my morning walk, I came across a yard sell that had a food scale for sell. I have been thinking about buying one, so this was perfect. The new ones are almost $20 so I got this one for $3. I'm not sure it will work, it is used, and it's not as nice as the new ones, but I'm hopefully I can get it to work.
The morning walk went well as far as I go, I walked a full 2 miles, but charlie drove me crazy. He tried to attack another dog, twice! On top of that, he would behave on the walk, he kept trying to pee on everything and wonder into the fields. I need to find a better way to get him to walk I guess, I just don't know what it will be. but I did walk about a hour this morning at 25 minutes a mile this morning. Then, before dinner I took him for a quick 10 - 15 walk down to the end of the street and back. I tried to do some strength training but it didn't go to well. So all in all, I will give myself a good 65-80 mins for the day, not bad at all.
Now I need to drag myself to bed. I can't believe I'm this sleeply and it's not even 9:30....
