Now that it's getting colder outside I'm remembering how difficult it was for me that first winter on SP. Trying to get in 8+ glasses of water (it's easy when it's hot outside), having to change my breakfasts (cold cereal with fruit) and my lunches (sandwich, salad, fruit). I made these changes: drank 16 oz of water with each meal and snack; made oatmeal or English muffin & egg plus fruit for breakfast; and lunches were comforting soups (with lots of veggies) plus fruit.
It's time to get back to those old "new" habits for me to stay on track this winter. Because I have adapted to moderation for everything and portion control the holidays no longer "scare" me. I hope to embrace my healthy eating habits and make sure I spend more time with family and friends not just eating with them. There is always someone to share a dessert with :) Now that DH is on board with getting healthier and doing a great job I might add.....his almost too tight winter jacket is loose on him this year. I think he will be in on sharing those desserts.
For those of you following my niece Laurie's cancer story: she had a good week. Learning how to eat 5-6 mini healthy meals. She had her staples (42) out yesterday without too much pain. They discussed her options for her chemo treatments which will start in a few more weeks as they want her small intestine to heal a bit more. She is staying strong and positive.
Thanks for stopping by with your comments. Hope you all have a great week and remember to hug the ones you love. ((HUGS))
