Day 4 and It's Getting Easier

Saturday, January 04, 2014

Day 4 - lots of beans today. I've been just eating plain beans (black, kidney, red, pinto) that I add to other stuff but today I found a can of Bush's Grillin' Beans in the basement kitchenette. I felt like I'd struck gold. I cooked them up and ate 1-1/2 cups for my lunch. My God they tasted fantastic! My DH started laughing at me because I was making such a fuss over how good they were. Beans. He just thought that was so funny. I put some regular black beans over my dinner salad with some chopped tomato. Last night I had a really hard time eating all my salad but today I was just so hungry that I had no trouble.

Took a really long walk today. Back to the stream which was totally frozen over! I initially thought it was still open because it looked like it was moving but when I actually got up to it the water was frozen in place. Yes, frozen just like it was moving. It was really incredible to see and I wish I'd thought to take my camera like JacksGran does. Perhaps tomorrow I will wander back there again. Even frozen that stream is a siren song for me.

And the hiking boots worked out pretty good. My feet stayed warm and dry. The only problem was my socks. The boots actually pulled my socks down and I ended up with a wad under the arch of my foot. Couldn't wait to get them off when I got home. Not painful to walk that way but just a nuisance.

So after 4 days this new eating plan is working out pretty good. 5 more weeks to go. My weigh-in day will be next Wednesday. Looking forward to what could be.

    Reading this post made me want to sing a song about beans, but I only know one song about beans and it's not really ... appropriate.

    I am envious of your stream. Having a scenic destination to walk to makes all the difference, I think. I hope you will remember to take a camera at some point and share it with us.

    That is wonderful. Yes, boots tend to do that. Try thicker socks and also tying them tighter.

    On to a successful day 5!

    I would love to see your stream - Sassy does a great job with her photos. And socks falling down inside the boots. Hate that. It's why I almost always wear running shoes even in bad weather. I just can't figure out how to keep them up. Although I will say that the expensive wool hiking socks work better than anything else...

    Sounds like your plan is working!!
