Life is good....real good...very good. Just think about it. No matter what you have going on, you DO have a life and that's a good thing. I am a positive person. So much so, that I can't be around a lot of negativity. It just weighs me down. When that happens, I have to regroup. Normally, I shut out the world by going for a walk, whether it's through my neighborhood or at one of my favorite parks. Nature always resets my mind and makes me feel better. Or being around kids. I love to hear their laughter and conversations. My granddaughter is 3 1/2 now. She is so much fun to be around - even on her bad days (which I admit are few and far between).What do you do to reset and get away from the every day things that are weighing you down?
Big news! Honey-Buns and I have been eating healthy since the beginning of the year - January 4th to be exact. Honey buns has lost 60 pounds - yay! Me? One pound away from 25. We're watching portion sizes - measuring our portions of rice, 4 ounces of meat, etc. I have been cooking fresh vegetables only and we always have a green one - green beans (snap or pole beans), asparagus, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli. If I have a carb like rice or potatoes, we measure it out. I have found lots of great healthy recipes online that we are always trying out. Our favorite is a chicken/spinach/tomato spaghetti one that uses sundried tomatoes. I feel like such a chef whenever I make it - lol. I've cut out all sodas and drinks, only drinking water and milk. I can see such a huge difference in my skin since increasing my water intake. I really am hydrated now - inside and out.
I have been walking, but it seems like if I walk too many times during the week, my weight increases. I have the weirdest metabolism of anyone I know. It doesn't help that I'm going through peri-menopause either. Oh well...it is what it is. I'm happy that I made my driver's license tell the truth on my weight for a day or two. I will have to change my weight when I renew them this summer, but this time the weight change will be in a good way. And THAT makes me happy. :)
