blahblah again-on progress--or the betterer report
Monday, August 05, 2013
Whew here i am at work and all i can think about is a diet coke. YAY this is actually a great thing since there is a pack of o r e o s in my desk drawer! I wasn't even thinking about it until I started writing.
I'm stuck at work with work to do but nothing due right now. I have to wait for someone to finish something before I can see if there is something we can do. heehee i told you it was blahblah time!
Anyway, I feel better about myself why? Because I lost another pound FINALLY. I have struggled with that TOP 10 for weeks now and it has finally taken my letting myself feel the emptiness and not sleep all that well and all those other things that can go along with change of eating habits for me. Change for the better that is.
So what changed? Well, once again I got a yearning for a heavy meal ( often it is a carton of ice cream i crave, but this time it was speghetti). INstead of having that I had the world's largest and pretty much yummiests salads instead. I was careful to put in some protein and even a little fat in the form of whole milk mozzerella--all the betterer for taking in the nutrients.
It was delicious.
So were the 4 little maria cookies I allowed myself much later with a banana. Reminiscent of my father's fave thing- a cookie with a banana. perfect balance.
Some of this and some of that but no need to go crazy over any of it.
I deserve to eat betterer. I deserve to respect my body and what I take in. We all do! We are spoiled people who have enough money to buy too much food. Too much of the wrong kind of food.
It is time once again to start eating like a peasant. I really am a worker bee here at my job, but I can be respected here and I can respect what I do for myself and what I take into myself.
I feel a bit betterer. Even if I had to say in such a blah blah blah way.
Turning it over makes it happen.
