Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
You know .. if I wouldn't have had Monday this week .. I could honestly say this has been a PERFECT week .. (so far) .. lol lol
I think I ate too much last night .. I haven't been eating much and I honestly belevie my stomach (inside) must have shrunk .. because I AM eating .. (better be scared if I say that I stop that ...lol .. you'll KNOW something is wrong) .. but I'm eating lighter .. I'm realizing that I don't need a big huge plate to fill my belly up .. well -- last night .. I have been feeling too good, and sorta didn't pay attention *burp* .. Another reminder .. consistancy .. lol lol
I've been doing really good at work .. I had my "breakfast" .. 2 egg burrito with cheese, and chipotle queso; and I had my lunch .. after my walk, of my apple and peanut butter .. I was going to have a yogurt, but decided the apple and peanut butter filled me up ... and then hubby sent me a text asking "how many cheeseburgers do I want" .. Well -- they are small .. like McD's hamburger size .. so I said 4 .. ... Yes .. eyes are bigger than the belly .. and *burp* I couldn't stop after 2 when I was full .. they were sooooo good .. so the 4th one went in very very slowlllyy ... lol lol
When does it happen that the brain actually coordinates with the belly ?? When the brain realizes .. "you've been feeling really good on not that much food .. you are foolish to ruin that feeling good with a stuff fest" .. ??? I need to get my brain and my belly on the same level .. You know I CAN do it .. I've succeeded in keeping my ice cream consumption for weekends only .. (and there are some weekends that come and go, and that urge never arrives .. Yea .. really ...how weird !!!???") ...
Sooo my scale went up again today .. *sigh* .. but that's okay .. again .. it's a learning curve .. the good news is that I'm working in my exercise .. and yesterday's dinner antics had nothing to do with my walking ... I'm trying to keep my food and my exercise separate for now .. because I don't want the idea "you exercised, now you DESERVE more food" or "wrong food" or "yummy food" ..
That was part of my problem yesterday .. I ONLY had a burrito for breakfast, and I ONLY had an apple for lunch .. I DESERVE a big dinner .. (even though ONE burger would have sufficed)... I DESERVED FOUR!!!!
I did have my swamp water last night, and well -- I put in a bit too much ginger, but maybe that is the reason that I'm feeling as good as I am this morning .. (could be worse .. but feeling "ugh") .. lol so I think without the probiotic and the ginger swamp water .. I would be worse this morning .. lol
So -- today is a new day .. I admitted my booboo's, so it's done and gone, and what will Friday Jr have for me !!!
I'm well .. not hungry ...lol lol .. and thinking .. okay --- I may not have a "breakfast", but I have my yogurt at work, and while it's supposed to be cool this morning .. by lunchish, the temperature should be better .. and I'm seeing myself on another walk .. Ooo the weather lady just said "65" for today .. Yup --- definately an outside walk !!!! and when hubby suggests something for dinner .. "scale it back to where it belongs" .. Oooo it was very very uncomfortable last night .. and I don't wanna feel like that again today .. lol ..
So that's my tentative plan for today .. Even if the walk is just around the block (1 mile) .. I'm doing it .. :) but thinking about hitting a different park today ... :)
Looking forward .. next week Friday is my Scrapbooking / stamping show, with my calligraphy class in the evening .. I'm planning on starting my day with a pampering .. nails, and pedicure .. and then I haven't filled in my middle ... until 2 or 3 .. (cuz my class is at 6ish I think) .. but it will be a day all for myself .. and just looking forward to it .. I wonder .. they offer volunteering positions for $10 / hour .. wouldn't it be fun next year if I get to go, and volunteer, and enjoy myself for a few days and get paid for it ?? That's something to think about for next year .. but this year, I just want to enjoy the show .. I want to come back up to speed on the new things with my card making and scrapbooking, and crafts .. :) So I have something to look forward to !!!! :)
But back to today ---the weather said there is no reason that I can't get out during lunch and get my walk in .. I have my yogurt, carrots, and grapes at the office .. I'm thinking that I should be fine today ... and if I can bring my brain back into my goal circle .. I'm planning on a PERFECT day !!!! :)
Yuup ---yesterday is done and gone, and nothing I can do about it .. I've had a severe talk with my brain, and it promises to behave today .. It promises to work WITH me instead of against me .. I know I can do it .. and I WILL DO IT !!! I WILL HAVE A PERFECT DAY !!!! and I hope you do as well .. :)
