I am so proud of myself today. Yesterday I made a small goal. To make it through the whole day eating only vegs fruit, and a small amount of protein for supper. I told myself don't worry about the next day, a month from now. Just worry about today. Making small goals is easier. So having made it through yesterday without dieing I am thinking maybe today I can try again. I had the most awesome breakfast . I had my Steel Cut oats cooked with fresh apple . My new favorite breakfast. But today I added something new. My kids got little bags of dehydrated cranberries in there halloween buckets. SO I had an idea. I love cranberries but never eat them because they take so long to cook in there raw form. So I threw them in the boiling water with my oatmeal and apples. They plumped right up and my oatmeal was amazing ! I was painfully reminded this morning that none of my jeans fit but one pair. All the pants I wore last year are way to small. Today is the first day of snow in my area of the world. A day of renewal. Something new... I will fit into those jeans.. I refuse to by bigger ones. I will wear the same pair of pants everyday if I have to until I can get those other pairs back on. My second goal today.. drink more water ! I dont like water so this will be a challenge. Funny thing is that I feel better today.. somehow lighter. Even though I know I didnt lose a pound in one day I think my body dosent feel so weighted down by crap food. Its happy.. it was well nourished yesterday. Its crazy when you stop to think of how malnourished we really are with the diet eating .. how much vitamins, minerals, is your food feeding your body today? After all . Eating is to fuel the body.. the body then repairs itself. Our body's cant do that on a diet of sugar, fast food, and pop. I am feeling inspired today!
