My shopping cart!
Sunday, January 27, 2013
Normally I detest grocery shopping. I hate spending the money and I hate it when the store is busy. I like spending time READING the labels and choosing wisely. People around me get antsy and try to rush me. My husband is also one of them. HA!
This morning we were at Meijer by 630am. The only people there were store employees stocking the isles. Works for me. I warned my husband NOT to rush me and to please assist me with the list. He accommodated me thankfully. It was like a game....finding the right options and reading the labels.
In our weight watcher meetings we go over food finds quite often. I have listened in the past, I just don't always act on them. Have to admit, my reaction has been one of .......RIGHT.........like I am going to buy that! HA!
You know what? Today...this morning....it all seemed to fall into place for me. I cannot tell you HOW excited I was to find KODIAK CAKES....a frontier flapjack and waffle mix that has ONLY whole wheat, oat and honey as ingredients. I bought KALE...to make KALE chips.....I spent so much time in front of the produce sections....the GRAIN sections....and .....I didn't just look at them...I understood and PURCHASED THEM!
My CART was full of goodness.....just FULL. I felt so PROUD...I wanted to take a picture...and my husband literally RAN from me. I think he was embarrassed! HA! I not only wanted a picture of my cart...but ME with the cart....smiling...proud......s
howing the I GET IT and AM DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT moment.
What has happened to me?
I have to thank 360 and the meetings. 360 we work on our spaces and they become routines. They are individualized for ones needs and not a mass. We get homework each week. I know...that has not changed because it has always been...OUR FOCUS this week....but....FOCUS verses HOMEWORK....homework clicked for me. Focus means I think about it...as a passing fleeting moment, but homework... I DO.
by doing.....I am getting it.
