This past week I had a NASTY cold.....as all know, being sick is so not fun! I kept my spirits up by being grateful that if I were to be sick, better now than on Thanksgiving.
I did NOT attend a single weight watchers meeting. I usually go twice per week. My three year plus streak...ended. sigh.
I also did not WALK. Rambo and I rested ....a lot.
No glow trophy for us! sigh.
What I did do....was plan.....think....and prepared for WHEN I felt WHOLE again.
Even though I have long days and can be quite exhausted by night fall.......I FEEL CONTENT. My contentment consists of the healthy guidelines and fitness.
I missed that this week.
I am now BACK with a VENGEANCE!
Sometimes Winter can be hard for me.....FRESH salads seem to go by the wayside as I desire the warm comfort foods. Salads aren't as fresh and exciting as they are in the warmer seasons. Same can be said of certain fruits.
The simple solution is to go to the store more often....and of course by the seasonal fruits! LOL!
Not sure why I used WINTER as an excuse to go off plan....but.....if I tend to make excuses when I don't want to put in the effort.
Yesterday we went grocery shopping.
I spent a lot of time...and yes.....money on POWER FOODS! My mouth actually WATERED as my brain took in the sights and smells!
For my birthday this past Spring.....a dear friend sent me a few weight watcher toys! Love this fruit container! This am...I loaded it up with fruit and yogurt for part of my work week! Certainly looks scrumptious does it not?
Got my tracker out.....and am ARMED with two ink pens.....green for power foods and red for non. Going to keep track this week....100% to get a feel just how close/ready I am to TRULY follow the SIMPLY FILLING Technique. I have been fighting this forever it seems. I realized that I am fighting myself.
I follow a woman from Ohio on FB. She is a weight watcher leader....AND also owns a dry cleaners! We have a lot in common! She has been quite encouraging.....and a bond was formed with our similarities. The difference being...she is TRULY following the Filling technique. Her constant pics of her meals...have given me ideas....as well as the desire to have these appealing meals.
So.....even though I was off my game this past week with that NASTY NASTY cold...it gave me time to reflect and plan......and....
I am grateful!
Yet...MORE grateful....I feel ever so much better!
