This morning i threw away the rest of the delicious red, white, and blue trifle (strawberries, whipped cream, and blueberries). Our company has left, my husband isn't eating any more of it, I have had a good share of it yesterday (tracked and accounted for), and it was time for it to GO!
So after one last tasty portion -- along with my bagel and cottage cheese this morning (all added to the tracker) -- I dumped the rest of it.
Whenever I do that, I like to notice how the food congeals and sticks to the bowl. Then I tell myself that's what it would be doing in my blood vessels instead if I had eaten it. That kind of thinking can be a help sometimes. LOL
This morning I walked 30 minutes longer than my usual 60 minutes, just because I was enjoying listening to my junky Evanovich book so much.
It was the thought of this same book that got me out of bed this morning at 7:00.
I was lying there thinking that I had walked for the past several days, and it was Sunday - a day of rest - so maybe I would skip this morning's walk, when suddenly I remembered how much fun it was to listen to that book. Off I went, earphones in place, and with a smile on my face.
Yesterday was a good day, and today will be too.
I have not eaten any of the crumb cake that my husband often picks up in the morning, and guess what I noticed? He stopped buying it!
(I have forbidden myself to eat any of it for the entire summer this year.)
I think I'll make a decision to eat NO NUTS for a week. Nuts are a real favorite, but they are also very high in calories. So until next Sunday, at least -- no nuts.
