Starting over ? how many times do we all do that? Well, I guess in my case until it sticks! At least that's what I am planning.
I could be so mad at myself and I am, but really why? It's all my own fault anyway. .. for not sticking to my goals, for not getting up and moving, for one more slice of pie... another cookie isn't gonna matter... But Oh, it is! So getting mad?? really not the productive way to go. Yesterday I was sitting and waiting (once again) on my hubby to get back from a dr. appointment... and I thought ... what the heck am I doing. Everything is going to s-it. So why not chuck it all and start over once again.
We had plans to go to the store after his appointment. We are not that often on that side of town so we thought we take advantage of going to the superstore. I was going to buy a pair of shoes that I really didn't need) and some batting (which I still have some) and check on yarn (while more is coming in the mail the next few days... get the picture? A bunch of stuff that I have and not need just to get out and shop?!
Well, what I ended up doing was stocking my fridge and pantry! I bought apples, pears, and tomatoes. I got carrots and celery, onions and tiny potatoes. I bought some rice cakes for my hubby, cause he loves those things. AND... I also bought my favorite snack. Jicamas! Have you ever tried those? YUM, yum yummy. High in fiber low in calories, even so, they have a good amount of carbs they are much better than eating cookies and pie!
It's a start in the right direction. We have cucumbers and lettuce in the fridge and I have oranges and more apples as well. Last night went all right. I grilled peppers, (every color) onions and a few tiny potatoes (maybe 4 itty-bitty baby potatoes each) with very lean ham strips. I did have a teaspoon of sour cream with mine while hubby heaped his with salsa, but sooo good. For a snack, while reading I had jicama strips. ...and I realized that's my problem. I eat when I read; when I am at the computer and when I am sitting and crafting. I always have a cup of coffee and I always have the munchies! ... and there is my start! I thought I was lost on how to get started again... but not anymore.
Happy Holidays everyone! I can do this! Join me again on this journey...
