HCB's Journal, 20 August 2012

So, each day is a new beginning for all aspects of life. Patience, acceptance, and tolerance are good thoughts for me today.

My food plan has been a bit easier this week since I avoided the wheat carbs and extra carbs I seemed to sneak in the previous week. There are certain things I can eat that do not upset the process: whole grain oatmeal, all corn tortillas, gluten free pizza crusts, sweet potato, all fruits and vegetables.

Exercise is my guiding principle - cannot live without movement...and some sweat!

Today I am grateful for:

- My FS Buddies who support and encourage me to continue
- "Butt-kicking" myself to a smaller size today
- My DH - who is my greatest "cheerleader"
- My Bengal cat companions named Bodhi and Ravi
- My work - which has meaning and worth to other human beings
- My connection to the Mother Earth and its entire splendor
- My physical health

You are so cautious and exact with your diet. I admire you for that. You seem to remain acutely and precisely aware of the kinds of foods that you take in. Exemplary!

I agree with CJT...it definitely takes motivation and dedication and you have them!!! I love reading your journals and they help me with my own motivation.

Sounds great HCB! I can't believe I used to be a person that never sweated - it was too "uncomfortable". I don't know if you used to be like that or not. But not now! You are amazing and so inspirational!

Not much time for me to post comments on journals in the early morning so I have been swing by in the evenings. Hope you don't mind!
