How is everyone doing today?
I ‘m off today and having a great one so far, was up early this morning ( left my charger at work) and actually the scale gods were smiling on me this morning so I FINALLY got to weigh, of course I had just eaten but I will take it! 🙂 155 baby! I have been trying to diet, be a Vegan, all this together and it hasn’t been working out well, more on this later, but I ‘m happy with this number, coming to get you Michael-smooches!
Yesterday, I learned two things…
1.) Yes, I ‘m still eating clean but I need to focus on one thing at a time.
2.) I need to be more prepared.
I think for now, I just need to focus on one thing at a time, yes I am still going to reach my goal (140 pounds), but I am going to concentrate on this new change in lifestyle instead of ‘ stressing’ on these last 15 pounds and maybe yesterday won’t happen. I packed my lunch, 10 rosemary crackers, small portion of home-made guacamole’ and some blackberries and headed off to work, knowing I would leave at 5:00, head home, have time for a quick dinner before I headed off to Church. Well, life does not always work out this way, so as I was working late, I was already hungry, but as time was getting later and I knew I was not going to have time to get home before Church I was starting to panic, what on earth was I was going to eat? Being new to this lifestyle, it’s not like I was going to be able to find just any fast food restaurant and know what to order nor had I prepared myself for a longer day. So, as I left my office at 6:40 pm, knowing I had to be at Church at 7:00 pm, and I was at least 20 minutes away, and literally feeling I was going to throw up for I was so hungry.
I had to make some serious decisions, at this point a gas station was a VERY real option for I knew I was not going to last till I got home at 9:30 pm and I needed something quick for I was late and I didn’t want to keep God waiting! 🙂
Since I have just started going to this Church with my friend Amy I do not know the area as well, so I of course passed your typical Wendy’s and Mickey D’s which I didn’t want. I kept going, I was already late, it was after 7:00 pm and I just started praying, ‘ Please God, just find me a ‘ Subway’. I knew there at least I could have a veggie sub, it would be fast and stay within my EC and my Vegan lifestyle, not 5 minutes later, there it was like a beacon the night, I almost cried, I was so hungry. I was sick to my stomach, I literally was driving and eating in my car, I was a few minutes from Church so I finished in the parking lot and thanked God and went in and had the most amazing service! ‘ I believe I have received-Thank you Pastor Sarah and Amy! 🙂
Lesson learned, I will not be unprepared again and I am going to work on one thing at a time, my new lifestyle. This does not mean I am going to just eat whatever I want and not worry about my weight, it just means I don’t want to be in the situation I was in yesterday. I ‘m going to get a handle on this new lifestyle and then incorporate my EC into it. As I found on the scale this morning, I ‘m not gaining like I thought I would, but what I think I ‘m doing is not eating enough actually, so I want to concentrate on what I ‘m eating so I don’t hurt myself and find myself scarfing down a Subway sandwich in the parking lot I felt like when I was heavy and hiding my food, how many times have we all done that one?
So, that is what is going on with me today! 🙂
Happy Birthday Alexis Baby, I remember being in labor with your Mama on the phone and bringing you home from the hospital, you have left such footprints on my heart, I love you so!
Just put some new tunes on my iPod, going to brave the cold I think, still trying to get a handle on working, things at home and getting my walk in. Since it takes me an hour to do two miles, doing it in the morning is a challenge, and with only having two days off, I seem to now only get those two days and the weekend, I really miss it, any suggestions? By the time I get home I am beat just from sitting at a desk, sad I know, but maybe with this new surgery, they will fix me up, not sure WHEN that will happen, and the shoulder, blah, blah, just prayin’ prayin’!
I do have a mandatory doctors appointment this month per SS so, we shall see how that goes and I also see my surgeon, so we shall see! 🙂
Now, off to do my walk, was HOPING it would warm up, but does not appear to be doing so, sigh!
Hope everyone has a wonderful evening!
