Day 407 in my journey to meet Mickey
I have gained a few pounds in the last few weeks. I sort of threw in the towel and went a bit wild. But today, I am re-resolved to get on and stay on the right path. The path where I put healthy fuel (foods) into my body. The path where I get out of bed an hour earlier every morning and get in a walk. After all I am only 23 days away from going to Florida. GAH!
Wow! In 23 days I’ll be there…in my Happy Place. I can almost smell the sun screen and chlorine now. 🙂 I will kick up my feet at Disney’s Old Key West and exhale…like, really exhale, the kind where I can actually feel the stress falling away. Ah……
Mike picked veggie sandwiches for dinner tonight. Shredded brie on bread rolls with sauteed mushroom, peppers, olives and onions. They will be delicious, but not exactly low-cal. I will make a point to eat plenty of raw veg (especially broccoli) to help push it through my system. Then the rest of the week it’ll be:
Monday: salmon and baked pumpkin with raw veg and dip (hummus maybe)
Tuesday: Easy Chicken and Bean Stew with raw veg and dip
Wednesday: Stuffed Green Peppers with raw veg and dip
Thursday: baked chicken with sweet potato and raw veg and dip
Friday and Saturday: Women of Faith Conference So, Friday-dinner with Jean and Joan. Yay! Saturday-dinner with Jean and Wayne. Yay again!! I hope to eat some nice dinner salads over the weekend.
My body is so ready to get back on the beam! I feel so much better and have so much more energy when I’m making better choices. Why do I not just live my life there? It still shocks me just how easy it is to slip off the proverbial wagon and make non-optimal choices. Sheesh! All I can say is, “Help me, Jesus!” And I know He will. PTL!
Meet you at the Kingdom!
