The Good Fight
Tuesday, October 30, 2012
My body feels like it is trying to fight off the cold germs that are all around this house. On the positive side, I had a really good night's sleep last night and ate a delicious grapefruit this morning. The scale was down a little, too.
Right now, I am just telling myself that I am an athlete, eating to fuel my body. Last eve that self-talk helped. Hubby was interested in the last serving of leftovers, so I knew I was getting myself something else. I almost reached for a frozen dinner. Instead I microwave-thawed a tilapia fillet and cooked it on the Foreman. Very easy and very good and much better for this athlete!! I had half a leftover ear of corn, and dibby-dabs of okra with olive oil, carrots, and broccoli. Very satisfying.
Even though I'm thinking of myself as an athlete, today I'm feeling like a day of semi-rest will be good for me. Gwen and I took a slow walk to the end of the street this morning and I'll probably get some active play with Natalie. I go get from kindergarten in just a couple minutes.
Hope you are having a great day! Thoughts and prayers are with you affected by Sandy.
