Pleased with myself today. Cereal for breakfast. Was so tempted to stop for a bagel this morning. Really wanted one but I am committed to the plan and the plan didn’t allow for a bagel today. For lunch I went to the deli across from the factory and got steamed yucca and vegetables; very tasty and low in calories. Snack was a light 70 calories and dinner was vegetarian stuffed peppers with steamed broccoli and cauliflower, and a slice of ciabatta.
I resisted the urge. Ate right. Yeah ME!
By the way, I really like Special K with the dried strawberries.
I had to make peace with the scale. I am working under the assumption that the new scale is correct. So I added 3.2 pounds to all of my weight entries since I got back on The Plan (only 8 days) so the weight loss is accurately reflected. I’m ok with this. It really doesn’t change anything. Just means I have more ground to make up. All is good.
Finding A Rhythm
Finding peace has been elusive. I guess I have a restless soul. I have been trying to find a “comfort zone” and it just isn’t there. The rhythm I had when I started this Journey has been hard to get back. I remember how quickly I found my stride in 2011/2012. I seemed to fall right in to the pace I needed to lose the weight. Walking at the track. Eating right. Eating less. The weight was coming off quickly. Hidden in that was the daily effort but it became a routine, a mindset.
I am struggling to get that back now. Today was the first day that it felt sort of normal once I resisted that bagel.
Maybe that is what I needed…
Four Years Ago.
I wrote this four years ago tonight after the horror of horror we came to know as Sandy Hook became clear.
I will leave you all with this.
