04 September 2014

I was surprised when I stepped on the scale and I was down three pounds today. I stepped on yesterday and I was the same- which was fine since I have dropped quickly initially. I hadn't expected to budge for a few days with TOM and all but I am quite pleased.

I've really got to make sure I am getting enough water in too. Yesterday, I really loved my water with slices of lime in it. That little bit of citrus is quite tasty.

Last night I got to spend about 2 hours sewing. I love lazy, quiet evenings like that. I picked about 10# of grapes yesterday so today, I just might have to make grape jelly. I think if summer has to come to an end, I will take those grapes as a consolation prize.

I am amazed at how I continue to be blessed- my husband, my family, mending broken relationships, all things I believe God has given me. What an amazing life.

01 September 2014

Yesterday, my husband and I went to the city to pick up some things he had ordered and then we went out for dinner. I didn't stay on my diet 100% but I was very careful and reserved.

Maintaining control is a big thing for me. I ordered blackened broiled fish. It came with steamed veggies on the side and rice. I didn't eat the rice. We also had an appetizer that was low carb and I had a few bites to taste it but left it at that. I could have eaten the entire thing.

The cheat for me was to try my husband's breaded shrimp. The rest of the day, I was able to get my water in as planned. I didn't drop anything yesterday but I didn't gain either so I consider that a victory.

I am back to the entire plan today. All my food is in the fridge and ready whenever I cook it. There are still lots of fresh veggies in my garden to choose from.

On the way home, we stopped at one of the orchards and my husband bought his favorite apples. I can stay away from those with no problem unless I turn them into a pie. Then there'll be trouble.

I am thankful for the great relaxing day we spent together. I am always sort of sad to see August come to an end here in NE Iowa but fall and winter do hold lots of things to look forward to. Winter weather, however, is NOT one of them.

I am feeling very focused this week. The initial drop in weight is encouraging. The first couple of weeks is always water weight for me but nonetheless, I love to see the scale moving in the right direction.

I did not get as much water in yesterday as I had planned but I stayed on my prescribed meal plan otherwise and the scale did budge 0.5 lbs so I am happy with that.

I've had 6 adjustments to my back in the past 2 weeks and I think it is finally staying in alignment. No sciatic pain and I slept like a rock last night. This is a huge victory for me. If it stays in place, I'll go back to my 3 miles of walking per day. The weather has cooled down so it will be a treat to be on the trail and burn some calories.

Today I am thankful for being pain free, having energy to go work in my beehives, being married to a wonderful man, and pursuing a career change at this stage in my life.

Thank you God for all of these blessings. Far more than I deserve.
