over a month of healthy eating! 6-27

It was about a month ago I got so mad at myself!  I have eaten healthy EVERY day since then!  It is quite shocking to discover I don't crave the junk food like I used to.  If I crave sugar (which I usually don't) I will have some fruit and then the craving is over.  Sometimes, I will have a rice crispie treat but that is soooooo rare.  When I grocery shop next month I will be buying me some salad stuff so that maybe I will actually make my own salads here at home instead of driving to Panera each day.  They use the good Romaine lettuce, which is why I go there and they aren't too pricey.  I can't eat iceberg lettuce at all as it totally upsets my stomach.  It makes it a total mess so I avoid that type of lettuce all the time.

Anyways, I have been able to do some exercises at Physical therapy for about 9 minutes now.  It is a type of elliptical machine.  At first I thought it was a type of stationary bike but it is not.  I tried the stationary bike and I can't do it.  I am going to price this type of elliptical to see if I can afford one of my own.

I hope summer is going rather well for you!!!

A hot, sunny day! 6-10

Kathy and I are both working on eating healthy and I think we both are doing pretty okay with it.  I am going to neighbors for dinner but since they serve healthy food, it will work out well.  We do dinner and a movie although I think we are still watching some Dr. Quinn medicine woman episodes.  It is what is currently on at the Hubel house.  I am making a yellow cake with frosting and raspberries on top for dessert.  I don't plan on actually having any, but since they feed me so often, I am bringing them the cake. Carolyn and Sean picked out the flavor and the fruit!

I am not sure if I have lost any weight yet, but these shorts are starting to feel a bit too big so it is a possibility.  Since I refuse to get on a scale, I will wait and see what happens.

I hope your weekend was as good as mine!  Oh - one of my lovely students is now coming back to me!!!!!  I miss that little one so much!

I lost count of days 6-5

I don't know how many days it is of eating healthy.  I am still doing pretty well.  I had my first day of actual therapy yesterday and I am a bit sorer than usual because of the therapy but I don't mind, it is a good kind of pain.  It means I used muscles that I didn't know could still work!  I go back tomorrow for my next session.  I am planning to do my exercises before bed tonight.  I hope to learn new ones tomorrow.  I have to also remember to bring my inhaler with me incase I accidentally do to much and cause an asthma attack.  There, I moved the inhaler from my room to my purse, just incase.  I do not expect an asthma attack while I am in therapy but hey, I suppose it is possible.

I am looking forward to therapy tomorrow.  I wonder how many new exercises I will learn.  Hmmmm, one never knows.

Something has changed 5-28

I am not sure what happened, whether I got mad enough or upset enough, or whatever enough, but I now do not crave any junk food and haven't for a whole 8 days.  Starting last Saturday (the 19th), I have eaten more healthy than I have in years.  I don't really understand what happened but I started craving SALADS!  Healthy ones!  So pretty much, every day since the 19th I have had at least 1 salad for one of my meals and I haven't eaten any junk food since then either.  I only want to eat healthy and nothing else. It is a very strange feeling and maybe I am possessed now or something.  Even yesterday, when I went to the movies with the girls, they got ice cream and I DIDN'T!  I wasn't even wanting an ice cream so that was definitely a good thing.  I was really surprise at this too.  I am happy about this though, I really am.

I am getting tired now.  It is almost bed time.  I had to get up early for one of my lessons.  I didn't mind because I would rather get up early for a lesson than to miss one.

I hope this trend of eating healthy keeps up.  So far, it has been easy and interesting.  I know I have been trying to eat healthy for over a year now, but it is so weird how this is happening.

A long time 4-22

It has been so long since I wrote in this blog.  Much has happened.  I was diagnosed with an ulcer, while that is not earth shattering, it certainly is an eye opener.  I also was weighed.  Oh my.  I am 2 pounds away from the scariest number EVER to me so obviously, I am not doing to well.  I am working on menus that are healthy and yummy and I plan to check out emeals to see what they are all about.  Because of the ulcer I will have to change my lunch habits, which in the long run will be much healthier for me.  I hope to have a handle of my weight by the beginning of summer.  On to cooking better and healthier meals for me!

has it really been that long?

I haven't posted since New Year's Day.  Wow, that is a long time.  I can't really say I have done super well with food, but I haven't done horrible either.  I am working on trying to eat more meals at home.  The problem I am having is that if I stay home too many days in a row, the house gets to me.  It is like the walls are closing in on me and I can't breathe.  I used to go to Tim Horton's and get a sandwich that was pretty healthy.  Fresh turkey slices, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese on it.  I would get a tea or a diet drink with it.  Sometimes I would run into friends and neighbors, other times I would just read but it did help me get out of the house.  Some days I don't get up very early because I am so tired all the time.  I am glad that on Saturday and Sunday I have to get up a bit early and get going.  If I have to get up, I usually can.  Sundays are super early at 6:45 am for to be at church at 7:30 am.  Sometimes I don't go, but mostly I do.  Sometimes I feel like I am just floating through the day until it is time to teach.  I float through my days.  I don't have a goal for the rest of the month except for to run through drive thru less often.  That is the only goal I have right now for the rest of the month.  I am going grocery shopping with Calli tomorrow.

I hope you are having a good day.
