What a great day in Wisconsin!

Sunday, December 02, 2012

The Packers won, We got some wonderful family news, I was faithful to my eating plan, It was a beautiful, unseasonably warm day and I am now going to exercise with my spectacular daughter!

December has always been a big eating month. Especially at the hospital. The doctors and patients and other nurses all bring in special treats. It is hard to pass up. But I have found a new way to savor that food. I SMELL it instead. Yes, my mouth may water, but...When I take a big whiff, I say to myself...I already know what that tastes like and I don't need to ruin my diet by eating it. My eating and exercising plan is a bigger priority. Besides I have a winter vacation to look forward to and also our daughter is getting married in July and we are going to be grandparents again for the 3rd time...I need to be healthy.

When I am fat, my back hurts and I am depressed. When I am thinner, I have more energy, My back feels great and I sleep better and emotionally much happier. Why wouldn't I choose the latter? My mindset is key. If my mind isn't made up to do this...then I won't. I love food and unfortunately love to cook and drink. I can still cook, but I cannot drink and I cannot eat any fast food.

Thank you God for blessing me and helping me to get re-focused. Let's all get out there and have a healthy week!

    i am already putting off christmas baking. i am not going to do that much because i know i will end up eating it if i do. i normally tell myself i want to take some to work, or to family or inlaws. the fact is my coworkers don't need it, my inlaws only eat a little (not many people) and my mom always makes a ton of it. so i think i will just make a bit and not worry about "not making enough".
