I feel a little weird, posting this way about.. .well, nothing. The only reason I am is because I promised myself to write in my blog every day.
I used to write in my blog every day without a problem. In fact it was practically a NEED for me. I was learning about myself, about my limits about my aspirations... I was charged up and charging forward... and I think afraid. Afraid that the fire wouldn't remain. And it didn't.
Now... well I really don't have a fire. This new "Action" face I'm in seems to be really calm and practical. I'm not celebrating every win with a happy dance. I'm taking it more matter of fact and you know what, that feels good to me. It's a similar feeling to when I gave up diet pepsi (and all sodas) back in July. There wasn't some big fan fair. I didn't count down the days until my 'last day'. I just looked around one afternoon and discovered I hadn't had a diet pepsi all day and though, huh, I wonder how long I can keep this up? It's Oct and I still haven't picked one up and frankly, don't feel the need to. If this journey with my weight loss can be like that. I'll be so grateful.
So in way I kind of want to celebrate the 'nothing to post about' moments. Revel in the fact that a clean eating day is nothing to be excited about, it's just a day. It's time to find other things to be excited about.
first off - the food is still good. I'm enjoying it so much that I added meals for my husband to my plan.
Dinner: Crab Stuffed Flounder, Cauliflower, Creamed Spinach, Green Beans - OK a little fishy for my taste and had some crab shell left in it - but it was ok.
Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs, Canadian Bacon, Spinach, Cauliflower - this was a repeat from last week. The Spinach was mixed in w/cream cheese and was a little.. thick before. But this time I left it in the oven longer and it all melted and mmmmmmmmmmmmm. so good!
Lunch: Hamburger with Swiss Cheese, Creamed Spinach, Green Beans - again spinich mixed with cream cheese, but this time I had the gist of it. I left it in the oven long enough to melt all the cream cheese and that plus the swiss cheese plus hamburger.. heaven!
Weight - I'm officially below 250! yay!!
Made it to the gym this am and did squats and did a 30 minute walk with the dog at lunch, so I'm all set here. Ready to party (reasonably) tonight and enjoy the rest of my day.
