Plugging Along and Singing My Song

4 years ago

Crock pot chicken last night with mashed cauliflower and kimchi.  Buffalo chicken egg muffins for lunch today along with a Kombucha and spinach salad.  Dinner will be bison, spinach, and sweet potatoes that the kids chose.  A friend asked me to lunch and I declined.  I went to the store and saw the donuts and passed them by.  I don't usually buy the donuts, but they were nonetheless calling my name.

Two nights ago I dreamed of eating lots of cupcakes.   It's good dreams are not our real life.  I don't even really care for cupcakes.

I went to yoga last night.  I had a 60 minute walk today at a three-year-old's pace.  It wasn't a fast clip by any means, but it still counts.  If I get a chance this afternoon, maybe I'll throw in some 8 minute abs.   Those have always made me feel better when I do them consistently.  

So it looks like I'm totally on track and doing great and should be thinner and healthier by the time I travel, but ha - things aren't ever that smooth.   That's okay - I certainly feel better when I eat better and exercise.  It gives me hope that things really will improve and I far prefer feeling hopeful to hopeless.

I haven't been entering foods into My Fitness Pal so I don't really know what my calories are.  I know my foods are all healthy and good and free of additives and added sugars, but they still have calories.  So today, I will break out my phone app and start plugging in some numbers.

And now I'm off to go make some tea and begin working on a project.
