Changes are Happening...

Monday, May 28, 2012

Little by little I see my old habits dying and new healthy habits are emerging. Today was a beautiful day here in New York. No real plans for this Memorial Day I decided to enjoy the glorious sunshine and play in the garden. Headed outside about 11 AM and got lost in my weeding, pruning and planting flowers. For me gardening is like therapy. I just love it and it's good exercise too. Before I know it, it's 1:30 PM and I'm hungry. Oh, but my project isn't finished yet and in the past I would have grabbed a protein bar, woofed it down in three bites and continued working. The problem is, my old way would cause me to get a headache and by the time I'd finish I'd be sooo hungry I'd eat anything and everything that I could get my hands on. I can assure you my choices weren't fresh veggies. Well, today all that was different. So it went like this.... Humm I'm hungry, I'm going to take a break for lunch. I washed up. Came inside and made a really nice lunch from last night's leftover chicken and rice, added some steamed asparagus and sat and ate at the table like a human being. Topped it off with an nice tall glass of ice water. After 30 minutes, I was satisfied, happy that I'd made such a good choice and went back to my garden. Guess what, the weeds didn't go anywhere while I took time out for me....lol. I had a really good day. Hope all of you did also.
