Wed, July 25, 2012 - Another Day Moving Forward

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

I started reset yesterday, July 24, 2012. The last time I did reset, I really felt great so thought I better so it again. I managed to do a little walking yesterday too. I made my hair blue. It looks pretty cool. My sister said I am brave. Well, it is not brave, but it is what is called, living life. I am doing things that are healthy but yet daring or out of the normal. Life is too short to not live. I don't have a job or am looking for one so it is something I can do. Even if I did want and could get a job, it is not that dramatic.

I am trying to get myself back on track and get this weight off. I went to my sister's and she is on a diet. She wants to lose 100+ pounds. I go into the Dollar Tree. She suddenly comes in and buys onion dip and said we should get some potato chips. I said too unhealthy and that I am looking for a healthy snack. She got crackers, even higher in sodium/fat/calories to use in dip. I get out to car, I had one cracker and when I opened the dip, she already had 3/4 of it gone. Wow. I went into Albertson's, puchased spring green mix, cucumber, lighthouse pomegranite/blueberry dressing that is low sodium 0 fat and is awesome vinegarette that is 25 cal and had a small salad with a tad bit of feta cheese.

I could not eat the crackers and dip....yes 1 cracker and a taste of the dip will not hurt me and is plenty...but to eat the entire box of crackers and big thing of dip, not small container, the big one (16 oz)...yikes. I also did some walking where she did not do any walking...she sat in car while I went into most of the stores....and I walked from her apartment to Fred & Meyers while she stayed home. I came home and cleaned kitchen, load of laundry and fixed my wore out exhausted husband dinner. He has been working his butt off trying to earn a pay check to get us money for our move.

I am up super early today. Gong to go back to bed here in a few minutes...It is too too early. Oh, I am not complaining or knocking my sis down, but am making a comparison. I offered her salad and she said NO. Wow, and she said we need to eat good things, not bad, is my salad bad? I think not. Well, I just encouraged her to continue trying and it is what I am doing, going to continue to try. We both agreed it be interesting to see what both of us are at in 6 months.

    In 6 months you will see a lot of progress. I'm glad you didn't let your sister influence you and made good choices. One choice at a time will get us where we want to go.
