Heat Wave

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Can it be I already reached a plateau?? I lost 4 lbs and have not moved in a week. I am celebrating getting my sugar really under control. I am not discouraged and although I wish it would move at least ounces, I am still determined to move forward. We are going to try to go swimming today. Something different and our first foot in this summer.

We are in a heat wave here and my garden is suffering from it. I hope I don't lose any plants. They look so stunted. What is it about me that I can't grow anything? I try so hard, I even talk to them when I water them! My sister throws seeds in the ground, doesn't weed and gets beautiful plants!

I tried a new recipe yesterday. I ran out
of fruit for snack so I made a buttermilk pie with Splenda. Just milk, lemon juice, eggs, butter and Splenda. All things I could have and to make it easy, I used a Keebler graham crust. I gave my husband my crust and just ate the filling. It was very good even if it didn't quite fill the crust. If I make it again ill have to note make a double filling. Today I made chocolate sugar free pudding that I froze in cups to eat as pops for snack. Shopping day will be later in the week so I'm being creative and using what's in the house.

    Don't fret too much about a plateau! Most times it is your body putting itself on hold while it catches up to where it should be from your losses, just moving things around for itself. If you used a tape measure you would probably see the differences there rather than on the scale for this week.

    You are doing terrific! Keep it up!

    When you water the garden, I suggest you do it at night. And if they are looking a little lackluster a little Miracle Grow doesn't hurt. These are things I used to do with my mom's garden. After a while the soil in the garden would be lacking nutrients, so I'd give it a boost.

    I have no ambition today to do anything. I want to go back to bed.
