Tomorrow will be 1 month since I have started this blog! What a month.
I have been having 2 scrambled eggs and 2 slices of my 45 calorie Sara Lee whole grain bread and some blueberries and 1 cup of light orange juice for breakfast. I ran out of bananas a few days ago but have been eating blueberries instead. I like eating blueberries instead of bananas because sometimes a banana is hard for me to swallow and blueberries are easier to stomach. I never was a huge fan of bananas; they were just convenient for me. I have my green tea and blueberries right when I get up and then about a half hour to an hour later I make my eggs and have my OJ. Funny thing about the blueberries is that my Mom had bought them for me the other day and I was eating them and started to read the cover and the brand they are called is “winners circle”. I am huge into signs and I feel if something unusual shows up twice in your life; something is trying to tell you something. Well to get to the point; the paint color of my kitchen is called “winners circle green”. Either I’m on the right track or I need to eat more blueberries lol. It just made me smile. This is for my Aunt Debbie: Yes, God works in mysterious ways ;-)
I love going back and reading my old posts. I inspire myself when I feel like giving up. At this point it’s almost stupid to even think to throw in the towel. Even though it’s only been like a month I feel like I have accomplished so much. Sometimes I feel like I’m a different person. I have to stop and say “who are you?” once in a while. The old me would have never stuck to anything like this. Another huge accomplishment for me is not getting fast food. GRANTED I have had fast food twice since I’ve started my diet but both times I was with my Mom and we were in Iron Mountain and I still calorie counted. It is huge that I haven’t gotten in the car and drove myself to Beef-A-Roo, McDonalds or KFC. I bet they miss me LOL…
Well the day is still young and I thought I’d write this before I forgot. The past couple days I have been bad by getting to post my blogs early. Last night I didn’t get to post until Midnight!
