Well, a complete week of 'coaching' under my belt, and I LOVE it! Has helped me SO, SO much! Some things that I've been pondering as I go through these coaching sessions:
The "tipping point" theory from "The Spark". GREAT concept! Keep doing the good things and eventually your body will change. www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
"But learning to satisfy them [cravings] in a controlled manner will keep your relationship with food in balance."Coaching session
I LOVE the idea of having a HEALTHY relationship with food!
Now obviously I don't believe that having treats is WRONG, but I need to be BALANCED! So this picture is not ENTIRELY accurate! ha!
"Keep on fueling the inner fire." From coaching session. For me, I LOVE the idea of the INNER fire [Jesus!] fueling my drive and perseverance!
Some news from our home:
This week I tried the new EXTRA dessert delights gum: Lemon Bars. YUM! Highly recommend if you like lemon desserts.
We had French Dip sandwiches this week, and I FINALLY made a decent 'thin bun'. Only 1.5 oz. and only 97 calories and 3 grams of fat and 3 grams of protein. Here is my recipe: recipes.sparkpeople.com/
Here is the picture of my dinner all for less than 400 calories!
The other day we had about 100 birds in our feeder! Not a very good picture, but you can KIND of tell! It was AMAZING!
And, finally, we are having an early Easter dinner tomorrow night. We leave next week for our son's graduation from Bootcamp and will have Easter at my parents, but because the older boys won't be there, and before they leave to go back to college after being here for Spring break, we are having a dinner here, as well.
Some pics from last Easter:
Looking VERY forward to a full table with friends and family.
Okay, well, that's it for the week.
Love you all, Susan
