I am on a high right now. Down 2 more making it 14 pounds in just under 3 weeks but more important than that (yes there are more important things) I feel wonderful today! It just occurred to me when I came downstairs today that I simply walked down the stairs... I didn't hold the railing, baby my right foot (which was the one afflicted with plantar fascia) or go down one step at a time. I had a spring to my step and when it hit me I couldn't stop smiling! This POOP works (that's right poop not s&it)!!! I'm not going to swear as I find this really unnecessary; I do my fair share of swearing believe me, I have been accused of having a mouth like a sailor. This comes from working with a lot of loud, aggressive men. But I digress...
Today we are having our big Thanksgiving dinner. I have the turkey in the oven all stuff to the gills (wait turkey's don't have gills..), OK he's all stuffed up. I'm also making a low fat pumpkin soup for the early guests to have for a late lunch or appetizer (recipe can be found on the site under My Recipes).
Just about to do some tidying up and then out for a big walk/run and I might do the shred or kettle bells after. I am really stoked about today not just because we have a family get together but because I feel so great right now I know I am going to do well with my plan today - my mind is in the ZONE. For those of you who have read some of my blogs, I am not just a foodie but I love my red wine. LOVE IT! I can live without it which is demonstrated by the almost twenty days so far (OK I fell off last weekend away with girls for a couple of reasons but that's another blog). I have connected the fact that if I drink wine, I will eat more and I will eat not necessarily the good stuff, then I will go to bed feeling bad about myself. More importantly I will most likely walk up a little stiff, a cloudy head and revert back to inching my way downstairs AND I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.
So stay on my program today, no problem.
Including no wine today, no problem.
Exercise today, for sure.
Be extremely thankful for everything I have and what it has made me, absolutely.
I have another blog coming out today that I wrote yesterday that works in tandem with this one, my A HA moment, I hope you enjoy them both!
Be happy and be thankful!!!
