From nutrition tracking to sofa bears...

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Recovering from foot surgery and hoping to be back on my feet in a couple more weeks. I'm interested in losing some of my "sit on my butt" weight as well as improving how I feel so I'm weaning myself from wheat and excess sugar. The nutrition tracker is helping me stay honest -- it's amazing how easily my brain "rounds down" calories when I don't track them.

Luckily, our recently adopted dog "Mongo" is keeping my spirits up using his patented "sofa bear" technique. He's such a giver...

    One of my cats KNOWS when you are ill, often the day before you fall ill actually and she nurses you until you are better, normally she can't sit still in your lap, but if you are ill? Will sit for hours with you.

Animals are so good at being care takers.

    Good going!

I quit wheat about a year and a half ago and don't miss it. I have an occasional cookie during the holidays and get stuck eating breading sometimes when we're eating out, but other than that it's gone. I have little bits of sugar - no more than 4 peanut M&M's at work is my daily allowance - but not much of that either. Great for weight but even better for health.
