Middle of the Middle

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Whew! Lunch break on Wednesday – at the absolute middle of the week. Things are looking good so far.

We had Thai Massaman beef curry last night with jasmine rice. Absolutely awesome. I took a healthy sized portion and ate slowly with lots of Mmmmm and Ahhhh sounds. Did not have the dessert or lemonade offered – but didn’t need it! So I would say Tuesday Night Dinner Plan: Success!

Now I’m sitting at my desk. I used to have my drawers stuffed with lots of snacks – candy, crackers, cereal, Pop tarts. It’s all gone, and I bring fresh fruit and vegetables each morning, and sometimes a measured portion of cereal for when I get the “snackies”. It’s working, but I find myself still randomly opening my drawers searching for a little something-something. It’s very similar to opening the refrigerator and just standing there staring.

I’m not really hungry, I’m just looking for a little diversion, a little crunch, a little… something to relieve a stressful moment? A bored moment? Whatever it is, whenever I open the drawer and see that blank space I am reminded of the commitment I have made to myself:

I am striving to be mindful of how I am treating my body. I am striving to be aware of what choices I am making. I can CHOOSE to eat something deliciously calorie-ridden on occasion. Or I can CHOOSE to sit on the sofa instead of taking a walk around the block. And if I make those choices, I can also choose to move on, put that behind me, and my NEXT choice will be healthy. I will love myself, but it will be tough love!

Happy Wednesday – and hang tough everyone!
