Victories and Stumbles
Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Had a mini-meltdown yesterday. However, since I don't keep anything that even resembles junk food at my place, it was relatively healthy as far as *what* I was eating. However, *how* I was eating and *how much* I was eating were not so good.
The good news is that I waited until I was hungry again today to eat. Yes, I am trying to tune into signals!
Today I had guests and I bought bread (something I have been trying not to have around), cookies (same), and butter (I have nothing against it but try to eat even healthier fats instead: coconut and olive). They are from Holland and I thought I OUGHT to have such "basic" things!
However -- My friend had laugh of recognition at the affirmation posted on my refrigerator: "I eat like a thin person." She declined the bread and the cookies, which was pretty funny. The male partner did not decline the cookies, though.
However, he didn't eat all of the five small locally made cookies I bought. Unfortunately, I ate a bunch of the cookies, realizing after the first bite that they were TERRIBLE. They were locally made, but whoever made them had used old butter and old flour and they were basically rancid.
Did that stop me? No. Will it stop me in the future? Maybe. Am I embarrassed? Yes!
About the bread: I had ONE (yes! only one!) slice of bread and butter and then gave the rest of the loaf to the friend I rent from. Victory!~
I had a big old salad at lunch. That's good.
And I'll have some peas for dinner.
I'm still in recovery from the mini-meltdown, but tomorrow I expect I will be back in action eating my healthy food.
Next Topic: Exercise and Body:
I caught a glimpse of my thigh and calf in some harsh light yesterday and was horrified. I have a tendency to be heavy and have cellulite in those areas and DAMN I look like a comfy chair with quilts and buttons.
I tried out my now-healing toe on the first walk for two weeks today and it seemed to be okay. I'll keep doing healing things...and maybe I am back on my walking track!
Sorry for the rambling post.
Be well, ya'll!
