Fit Mommy Friday: WK 5: Lead Us NOT Into Tempation, BUT Deliver...
One day I will share my story of my journey with you all. There is so much shame associated with obesity, and if you don't live like I have... then, well...something about the truth of walking in another's shoes applies here...but...I am not ready to tell you all just yet...so please understand...HOWEVER, I am praising God! Really this IS HIS victory in my life!
So my week went something like this:
Water and eating 2-2200 K each day.
No processed boxed/canned kinds of foods.
Increased exercise and movement.
Water~although I did drink a few diet sodas this week. I am PURPOSELY keeping these on an occasional basis!
NOTE about ThanksGIVING: My day was not about food, but about having a good restful day. We did have a nice meal that consisted of traditional foods that were prepared with whole~good ingredients of which I measured and watched portion wise.
Dressing measured and lower cal (if you wanna know, you can ask me ;-))
Gravy (broth with mushrooms)
small amount of sweet potato (just potato~no sugar or other stuff)
Fresh prepared greenbeans.
Fresh prepared collard greens (about 1/4 cup)
Betty's Holiday Fruit (freshly prepared cranberries/applesauce/pineapple with sugar free jello)
Pear relish (3 TBS) (sugar free)
Pumpkin stuff (sugar free pumpkin pie w/o crust)
I had been really concerned about over eating today~of course: Today is GOBBLE GOBBLE DAY for so many of us~and since I've left that life behind, I needed to plan, which I did. Also I negotiated with the family what they would need/like for this day~they had stuff available to them I didn't touch, like mashed potatoes and gravy made with flour. All in all it was a beautiful day~no STUFFING!! me~or the kind of food ;-)) I am really grateful to God for being able to have such a blessed day!
Sooo this next week: I AM~
Planning to add walking my dog daily. Let's see how this goes...it's supposed to know tomorrow afternoon~uh...maybe not~we'll see!
and keep on my plan of eating...
~so far so good!
