This month is almost over!
I feel pretty good about how this month has gone so far. Considering that every time I turn around something needs fixed. If it’s not the central heat n air it’s a vehicle needing worked on. Least I have a home and transportation. That is how I’m trying to refocus my thoughts. Otherwise , I’d be mad and stressed all the time. Kinda like last year!
Today, I started back dieting/exercise till I reach my goal weight again. I somehow made a wrong turn over the holidays and stayed lost with the cold weather and stress as my navigators. I was pretty bummed about gaining weight back. I didn’t gain all of it back thank goodness. I was still pretty bummed though. However, I was not alone. Many people even famous people have gained some weight in the last few months. They too are working at getting back to their best self.
That’s how I’m looking at it. I’ve got to get back to my best self. My goal is to be there by Easter. Which is April 1 this year. I really do not like the idea Easter being on April fools day but it’s just how the moon phases. Seriously, it goes by the moon. Lol
My diet has been really good today. Exercise was good too but that’s really not my weak area. Eating is my weakness. I planned out my menu yesterday for today. It really was a big help. The rest of the week will be about the same. On the weekends I do plan to do moderation and eat what I’d like. My youngest and husband both have birthdays this weekend.
I resisted eating goulash and rolls tonight. Instead I had cauliflower and kidney beans with a slice of whole wheat bread and a boiled egg. Breakfast was easy I just did a protein shake with a cup of spinach. You can’t even taste the spinach. Lunch was raspberries and yogurt. For one of my snacks I made a mixture of baked chick peas, Cheerios, cashews, and 7 dark chocolate chips. It sounds weird but it was good. I ate it while waiting on the kids to get out of school. It was approximately 225 calories. Then for doing so good before I closed the kitchen I had a fiber one brownie for a treat. I’ve not been hungry all day. I had no mindless eating either. Now, if I can get through the rest of evening today will be a success.
I just hope I can sleep tonight. I’m trying to work on getting at least seven hours of sleep a night. Seems like no matter how tired I am I can’t rest. I’m hoping exercising in the morning instead of evening and no late night eating will help with that.
Hope you have a good week!
Thanks so much for reading and God Bless!
