I am going if you can still read this...I hit the WRONG button!

I feel like I have a "stalker" or two that really have no business knowing the ins and outs of my I am closing this down...and I will allow only those who I want to read my thoughts.

Selfish Much? That's the whole idea! :)

Are you sitting down?

I survived a day without a diet coke? Yeah, I am stoked too!

Carry on!

Wow, Day 4 and I am actually posting...

I have a pulse, a heart beat...a breath...

Last night I actually found it a wee bit hard to go to sleep because I had....

No, I didn't have a Monster drink, I had energy and so much so that it made it hard to get to sleep. I guess eating better is already having a drastic affect on me. I took my new pup for a walk to so I am sure that helped. Hubby brought me home a diet coke and I think I drank maybe 8-12 oz of it so that would be it for the entire day. I haven't had any diet soda today. I have had plenty of water though so that's a good thing.

Last night I made some amazing pork chops. We had them with sweet potatoes, and brussels sprouts and fresh corn. I ate my potato without butter, and only half a piece of corn, also no butter. It was so fun to sit and eat with my family. I asked them if they are ready for me to be home in the evenings so we have dinners together. I also asked them if they are ready to start eating better again. They all gave me a YES! I guess they don't like dinner with just Dad! (giggle) Family dinners are so fun! The conversations are always a riot.

So what thoughts do I have for today? Just to keep living...right this moment...not to one side or the other. Just be somewhere happy in the middle, healthy doing my thing.

2 Down, Hello Mr. 3!

Wow, I have actually survived 2 days of eating well and only 2 Diet Cokes. Now my Diet Cokes aren't for the faint of heart but 2 is better than 4, right?

I also took a leap and stepped on the scale this morning. That gives me power believe it or not. It gives me knowledge and a bit of courage to embrace something rather than hide from it. I have a goal in my head that is modest, do-able and I am not going to live in extremes. I am going to do my best to avoid crap, enjoy the good stuff and have a blast creating all the fun things I love to create in the kitchen. (even the goodies)

Next week I start on a new adventure. I am going to be working the graveyard shift. I am actually really excited about it because it is going to allow me to be here more for my family. I will be at work when they are asleep. It will give me the opportunity to have family dinner with them, enjoy walks with my hubby again like we used to, and help with getting kids picked up or taken to and fro. I know it's going to be a huge adjustment on my body and I am going to have to learn how to make it work but I am willing to at least give it a shot.

I survived yesterday and today is 2/3 over with....

and I am still breathing!

I didn't do anything spectacular with the exception of eating well as I planned. I also just limited myself to one soda.

Today I am being tempted to have another soda but I am going to find something else to have instead. I am sure I have some sugar free something or other to flavor my water with.

So I am pleased....just pleased that I conquered the day and WON!

Tomorrow I hope to be able to say the same about today!

Step one...again...

Today is one of those days I just decided to eat well. So far I have, and I expect to the rest of the day. I am going to actually take my "snack" with me to work rather than being drawn to that which is not going to do me any favors. :)

I want to feel better, so this is step one!

That's all!
