FRESH START: Day 1
Wednesday, April 22, 2020
hello SP Peeps! Didn't get a chance to blog yesterday because I was sleepy early again las night and took advantage of it! Oh! I may not have even reported that Monday night I slept all night until 4:26 AM when a low blood sugar alarm worke me! I took care of the low blood sugar and went back to sleep and ended up with about 10 hours of sleep! Last night I went to bed early and slept until 8:30, so another good 10 hours or so of sleep! Let me see.... More like 11 hours! Yay me!
Today's WW Topic was what to do when something big, you know, like a npandemic, throws you off your game plan and you really struggle to get back on plan! They gave many tips & tricks, but the one I'm employing is a Fresh Start! Acting like this is my first Day with WW and my first day with SP! I know, I've had plenty of first days, but this last time I went off track I really went OFF the track! I'm only 11 pounds down from when I started WW I don't even know how many pounds ago! I've gotten off track and gained some, but never this much! So, fresh start it is!
I do the Premium Coaching & usually forget about it here on SP. But, I've been trying to stick to it and today I will stick to it from now on! Today's lesson was about intuitively eating. The idea (Whaaat?~~) of eating when you are hungry and stopping hwen you are full! And, not following a clock and eat only when you get hungry. I did that naturally today without even checking out today's lesson. And, will follow the same plan tonight. I will stop when I am full instead of when my brain says this is so good eat some more.... Coach Becky said that animals eat intuitively. It made me laugh! Because I feel certain that Sassy would literally eat until she exploded! Maybe Becky said animals in nature and that seems realistic. My Sassy would not last a hour in the wild! she is sooo spoiled!
OK, need to do my workout and then ready for dinner! Peace!

And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.~Khalil Gibran~~What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the winter time. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the Sunset.~Crowfoot~~After a visit to the beach, it's hard to believe that we live in a material world. ~Pam Shaw~~If you truly get in touch with a piece of carrot, you get in touch with the soil, the rain, the sunshine. You get in touch with Mother Earth and eating in such a way, you feel in touch with true life, your roots, and that is meditation. If we chew every morsel of our food in that way we become grateful and when you are grateful, you are happy.~Nhat Hanh~~ Praised be You, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, producing varied fruits with coloured flowers and herbs.St. Francis of Assisi~~At one time, there was a stereotype that your Girl Scout leader was the mother of a Brownie, but increasingly, we are having young businesswomen and professional women who are not mothers but care about children.~Frances Hesselbein~~You can tell alot about a fellow's character by his way of eating jellybeans.~Ronald Reagan~~It is said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result, and yet each day the sun dawns, still crazy after all these years.~Robert Brault
