The Simple Diet Journal #10 -- It's Never Too Late To . . .

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

It’s never too late to . . .

Measure myself.

I didn’t think to take my measurements when I first started the Simple Diet. Then I wished I had. Today, I decided – so what if you’re 45 days in already – at least you’ll have them from this point in time. And, that’s what I did – got out the old trusty tape measure and gathered my data.

It’s also never too late to . . .

Eat earlier by changing the time I have supper.

Lately, I’ve been finding that I’m ready for supper at 5:00ish. Now, we don’t usually eat at my house until 7 – so that’s quite a difference. But, if it’ll help me stay on plan by eating earlier – why not?! Trying to push through until it’s 7 (and sometimes later) makes me prone to being so overly famished that it doesn’t feel good or tempted to snack on something while cooking everyone else their supper. It feels really weird to think I may eat before 6, but I’ve decided – on days when I clearly need the fuel of food, sit down and have a meal.

Great quote . . .

Read this last night in a garden magazine I picked up. Seemed particularly apropos for this season on a slow-moving scale:

“Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”
~ Robert Louis Stevenson.

    Teachers have an expression - "Monitor and adjust." Sometime a lesson plan works well for one class but bombs the next. I usually eat dinner early because of evening engagements and I don't want to eat dinner @ 9pm.

    That reminds me I need to take my measurements tonight.

    Sounds like you have a great plan with eating earlier.
