What a silly title! But that’s beside the point……
I’ve made a decision. In my attempt NOT to get caught up on the numbers on the scale, and because I refuse to let a number moving up or down define me, dictate my mood and allow me to feel “good or bad” about myself – I am not going to post the actual numbers that I gain or lose each Tuesday when I go to weight watchers. I like the weight watchers program, I believe in it and the healthy habits it has taught me, I still have some weight to lose so I have no intentions of stopping, but I also don’t want to focus on a single number each week.
Instead, I’m going to find a fun and creative way each week to let you know if the number moved up or down. Today it went down and I found the buff downward pointing arrow to show you!! I know this wouldn’t work for many, the numbers are important and I fully respect that. But for me, a simple “up, down or no change” is all I need.
I’m also THINKING of shaking up my blog a bit. I love sharing my healthy meals, fun mascots, recipes and my day to day life with all of you. Blogging has become a very important part of my life, and I have no intention of stopping that either. But over the next few months, you MAY see some slight shifts. I’m toying with a few ideas, so stay tuned….
For today though, here is the menu that helped the scale point downward. I had coffee, a bagel thin with light butter and peach jam for breakfast.
I took some strawberries and an orange for snacks.
Lunch was a fold-it sandwich that I constructed at work. It had hummus, spinach and tomato. I also gave it a squeeze of balsamic reduction that I have on my desk. (some people keep staplers and pens on their desk, I keep hot sauces and balsamic. Some days I think I should work for a food company….it really is where my interests lie. Maybe one day….)
During the afternoon I had a pack (4 points) of these new Dole Live Right “nuggets”. I posed them with my recently acquired “naughty librarian” reading glasses that have become a bit of a necessity for close work. “I’m afraid your books are overdue Mr. Clooney….”.
Dennis and I both did an oops, and didn’t take anything out of the freezer. While I was at “step on” Dennis sent out for pizza as a treat. My half had my standard grilled veggies with a bit of cheese.
Wordpress is acting up a bit, so better publish before I lose this profound (HA!) post. More tomorrow….stupid wordpress!!!!!
