YEAH LG - day 3 today - for me, no white flour or sugar is the plan, and more water. I did well yesterday with more water and had no white.
Went out to eat with DH - salad, broiled scallops, cauliflower, broc, carrot mix - and small dish of mashed potatoes - with plain iced tea. The scallops were a bit tasteless - which made me WANT "something" when I got home - but I resisted. Good for me!
I fell asleep early last night - so awoke early 3:45 am! I think I dozed off for a short while after that, but I was happy to wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day - carb coma is almost ALL gone! NOTE TO SELF - don't go there again!
I'm thinking in a few days it's time to incorporate some walking into my plan. With temps suppose to be in the 40's next week, I don't have bad weather to use as an excuse.
Noticed less bloat in my face today - encouraging.
I have started a paper journal to commemorate my last year in the 50's... calling it MY journey to 60! - today's thoughts were about obligations and choices. Growing up in a large family as one of the oldest kids, there were always obligations - and rarely choices. As my own kids grew, married, had kids of their own - the obligations continued as a way of life.... my mom lived with DH and I for 7 years as soon as my kids were out and married - and I had obligations to her and her failing health. DD had twins in 01 - and I felt obligated to help her......... all of a sudden, or so it seems - I am without immediate obligations on a weekly basis - and I can't decide what choice I want to make with my time.... part of me is anxious for all the possibilities, and the other part of me is hesitant to take that step into unfamiliar territory. My DH, on the other hand, has embraced the idea of choices and doing what he wants to do - for him, it's a car club that consumes a lot of his free time - he has made so many new friends I can't keep track of them. He does 90% of this hobby without me - leaving me with even less obligation to him. For the month of February, he has plans for every Saturday with his new buddies. I need to dig deep and find some courage to join a new group, and meet some new people - which throughout my life I have RARELY if ever done. It's not easy - but I tell myself the worthwhile things are not easy! Onward..........
