Day 2 of my humour experiment or do you hear the romaine leaves calling??
Monday, August 24, 2015
So as promised, and I know you have all been waiting with baited breath, here are some more reflections of my use of humour to aid in weight loss.
All was going according to "the program" until after my lunch of homemade vegetable soup and a chicken sandwich (1 pc bread) and I had that gnawing feeling that I needed something sweet. So rather than digging into the bread, butter and honey that was calling me, I thought what would my funny bone tell me? And then I had the most hilarious thought.....why is it always the sugar, the cookies and ice cream that do the calling? I could see myself looking in the vegetable crisper and listening very carefully, with not even a whisper from the romaine and celery, and the carrots and squash were pretty mum as well. The fruit salad I had nicely prepared did speak quietly and said' try me, try me.'
So with all that going on in my mind, I did eat the appropriate portion of said fruit and moved along with the rest of the afternoon.
Now so that you don't think that I have completely lost my mind, I did not actually have my ears up to the vegetables, but the vision was enough to make me laugh and reduce the craving.
I did go for my swim, vowing only ten minutes, but lasting 40 minutes. Again, I really did not feel like going, but thought what would I do instead? Better than listening to the contents of my refrigerator!!!
So here is a picture that sums up my thoughts for the day.
Hang in there and listen to (and eat) your vegetables!!!!
