Goodies Galore

Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Hey doggies.

Eats for today….. (don’t get too excited.)

Egg salad and a slice of toast with peanut butter for breakfast..

Toast is awesome. So is water.

The egg salad is gone now. Three days in a row is probably enough.

Lunch was an old Nutrisystem minestrone Soup and half a banana. Yes, I tried nutrisystem twice and failed both times. They have some damn good muffins though.

I feel like I ate something else but cannot remember what……

Oh, a piece of provolone cheese while I was babysitting. Len loves provolone cheese but I prefer the stinky ones.

I’m watching the news about a woman who drove into a swimming pool?! What??? Now that’s some shitty luck. I hope she’s alright.

I’m boiling a head of cabbage to eat with vinegar later. YUM!! Can’t wait. Shit, I should have added carrots to the pot.

What’s your healthiest habit? Mine is definitely my water intake. I’ve always been really good about drinking enough water and carry my bottle around EVERYWHERE. Literally, I think I’ve left my bottle behind two times within the last 10 years. It’s an obsession, really.

Again, three cheers to heath care reform!

Mimi had me keep a food journal for the week–we laughed because much of the food in there is a kids dream. Mimi asked what happens when I don’t allow myself the cookies, candy, and other goodies I want. I couldn’t quite give her an answer because at this point I give in so easily, not allowing time to have that mental feud. I know how exhusting that fight can be so I’ve stopped fighting. My job for this week is to fight all my binge foods and sit with the feeling, documenting what happens internally. What is my mind saying? What happens inside my body? This should be interesting but I like where she is going with it. To an outsider, or as weight watchers says, ‘a civilian’,  this may seem so bizarre. After all, it’s just a simple cookie, right? Absolutely not. That cookie symbolizes a lot– now I just have to figure out what.

Len and I woke up at 4:3o  this morning to take Ellie out and saw that it was POURING! We made the executive decision to skip boot camp. I was totally bummed out when I woke at 7 and saw that it was raining, but not pouring as it had been. I’m feeling disappointed that we skipped because I’m sure the others stuck it out and it was only the second day. Oh well, no sense in holding onto the guilt. We are certainly not making a habit of it. Rain or shine tomorrow, we will be there.

Last night I ate Pad Thai again. I think we’ve had it once a week for three weeks now. I’m officially sick of it. I hope. No pictures to show.

What’s your favorite movie to watch on a rainy day? Mine is Catch and Release, Forces of Nature, Dan in Real Life and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. HOWEVER, I could really go for Beaches. “On the boardwalk…”
