I have made it all day today in a good mood. I know it must be a bummer for anyone that reads all the negative stuff from the negative days but I want to be honest and real. Those are days and feelings that I believe all dieters/people who are trying to be more healthy must face. This is a marathon with hurdles. It would be so much easier if it were a flat playing field, a path with no hills and no walls and no detours and no boulders. Honestly though, if it were that easy - everyone would be thin.
I think I will start to include my daily menu. This will make it easy for me to go back to and remember what I ate that worked and what didn't.
1 Cup of steamed Quinoa (just plain - my first time to try this - not too bad)
small salmon steak
1/2 cup quinoa
(not there yet but will be)
1 cup black beans with 1/2 cup pico de gallo
1 cup quinoa with lime juice and cilantro
fruit of the day - pomegranate - have eaten about a third of one...
for my snack - cause i know I'm gonna - i think i will make hummus and dip it celery sticks...yummmmmmm
It feels good that I had a good healthy day. After my exercise disaster from yesterday, I am taking today off and tomorrow, helping my daughter move so that will take a lot of energy. I will probably not get on the treadmill again until Monday ( but it would be good to get a Yoga in tomorrow or Sunday) I know I need to, but I also know, I have to be kind to my old body. It is already going through this amazing detox process, I don't want to get sick or injured. It's happening - I must be patient with myself while I am encouraging myself because balance is key if I am going to run the marathon while clearing all the hurdles.
