SUPPORT 16 - 22 June
I've been up since before the crack of dawn, waiting for all you sleepy heads to get up and start your day! LOL
I'm down to my lowest weight in 3 years but that can be attributed to a stressful past week. This week my focus is meal planning and healthy eating. It would be great just to hold this weight for a couple of weeks and give my body a chance to recover from the stress. It's all about a healthy lifestyle and not crash dieting for any reason. Last week cost me 5 pounds - I say cost because I had a hard time eating. This morning a slice of wholegrain toast and a wholegrain PBJ half sandwich. I will pick up a yogurt downtown and a milk. I usually bring lots of water to my gardening job.
At the end of the day I begin my session with my mental health doctor (shrink) to try and make sense of what happened last week and how I got there. I've scared myself big time but at least I'm still here to talk about it. I'm moving forward and that's all there is to it.
My garden is growing in leaps and bounds. Trying square foot gardening this year. Will be a bumper crop of tomato, brussel sprout, peas, beans, carrots, parsnip, turnip, beets, onions and everything else I can get my hands on to shove in the dirt! Have to dig out my root cellar book I order from Mother Earth News and start reading ahead. Oh yeah, and I've planted some sweet pepper plants too. Needless to say with all this rain the weeding will be a true labour of love this week. I love gardening.
Are you planning to take care of yourself today? I say plan because planning puts you in the driver's seat. Planning helps you avoid major set backs.
My word for today is 'planning'.
How are you today? What are your plans?
Someone please post QOD and I'll catch up this evening when I report back in!
Let's give're heck today - have some fun, smile at everyone you meet and smile at yourself in the mirror - at least you can check your teeth!
