This is day 18.
Something I noticed when I sat down to track my food for the day.
No vegetables and only 2 bananas as my fruit. My excuse is that I need to go shopping, and they will have fresh fruit and vegetables tomorrow morning. We only get fresh fruit and vegetables on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and I try to shop only once a week. So tomorrow is shopping day and I will stock up. I probably need to shop for produce twice a week though, At least if I want to continue to eat the fresh stuff! My Husband LOVES fresh vegetables. If I don’t make a salad, I often have some homemade pickled cucumbers or cabbage instead. He’ll usually go and see if there is something “raw” in the fridge. Sometimes he’ll even just munch on a quarter of a cabbage head. Very thankful that most of our kids love fresh veggies, too. Because it looks like I’d forget them otherwise! L
Today, as I was on my walk, I just felt like quitting. I was discouraged about other things, and I got to thinking how long this was going to take and I just felt like it isn’t worth it. This kind of thinking has got to stop! And I will tell myself this daily if I need to!
I’ve been going back on Christine’s blog from the beginning and just started crying when I realized that she had some of the same struggles I do. Thanks Christine, for persevering! You’ve been such an encouragement!
Tomorrow is day 19. It is not day 1. I am not starting over, I am continuing. I may make bad choices along the way, but I am on the way – to a fit and healthy lifestyle.
