Thank you all for your positive and encouraging comments. It’s amazing what good wishes, a solid night’s sleep, two naps, lots of fruits and veggies, and a nice long walk will do for a person’s energy.
Yesterday was a good day. I purposely did NOT think about the future or try to make any plans or anything along those lines. Instead, I practiced what Anne Lamott refers to as “being where my butt is.” In other words, I focused on the immediate tasks at hand, of which there were delightfully few.
My yummy cookie splurge hasn’t shown up on the scale or my waistband…YET anyway. For now, I’m still in my green-for-go-go-go zone. The cookies may not make a difference, because I think my net calories weren’t far off target for the day. The nutrition, however, was another story entirely, so to make up for it, yesterday had an emphasis on fruits and veggies. I must’ve had 10-12 servings, mostly veggies thanks to the fine folks at Jason’s Deli and their scrumptious salad bar. While they do have the creamy salads that can ruin the best dieter’s intentions, my bowl is always overflowing with the fresh veggies (dark, leafy greens, carrots, cucumbers, cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes, and celery) by the time I even see the potato or pasta salad. No room at the inn, sorry. Jason’s also has hummus and boiled eggs for some good protein. And organic flatbread with pumpkin seeds and….
Why am I yammering on about Jason’s Deli? Especially since they’re not paying me. Moving on…
All the coupons for free Dole Fruit Bowls with Sugar-free Gel that were requested have been sent. (If you don’t receive yours in a few days, please let me know!) There’s a vicious rumor circling the internet that the whole thing is a ruse for me to collect the addresses of all of you folks so that I can come for a nice long visit now that I don’t have a pesky job to get in my way. NOT TRUE. Only people in coastal areas are in danger, at present.
Seriously, I still have a few coupons available, so if you’d like to get in on the offer, just zip me an email (see the side bar of my main page for the addy) and I’ll get it in the mail right away! I promise I won’t show up on your doorstep with all my worldly goods.
Okay, enough lolling. I’m off to the neighborhood rummage sale. I hadn’t planned on going (really!), but it’s nasty weather out and I know that will cut down on attendance. (Gosh, I’m a good citizen–such sacrifices I make!) Later this morning is strength training at the gym, and then we’ll see where the day takes me. I anticipate another nap, given the dismal weather, and possibly a trip to TCBY.
What are YOUR plans for the day? Anything exciting going on in your neck of the planet?
