Control

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Today (and last night) I had a lot of thoughts about organization and I really thought about how it boils down to my very all consuming need to have control over my life. Rather than dislike this need I am going to embrace it and work with it. My philosophy goes like this (not really new) What I can control I will and what I can't I will just let the Almighty take care of. After all I can't control the weather, how others feel and act, the political landscape, etc. So what can I control that I need to work on? Firstly I have most of the activities in my life organized, house cleaning is in progress, being accountable is also but I have a hard time with what to eat to keep the scale going down in #s. So I have decided to make a list of veggies I enjoy and I will go out and buy them and prepare them. I need to buy zuchinis and prepare them with parmesan cheese and onions, green beans and cook them with onions. These are just a few of what I want to always have on hand and prepared. I love vegetables and nothing makes me happier than a green salad with surimi in it. I can prepare that salad for under 200 calories easily. I do get hungry so it is imperative to prepare lots of stuff to eat that will keep me in my 1200-1500 calorie limit. It is also better to stay on the light side of that. Being only 4'11" doesn't allow me a whole lot of calories. I once figured it out and with a regular life I can only ingest approx. 1800 cals a day and stay the same. No wonder it is hard to get below 145 lbs.
