Planning ahead....

Sunday, March 03, 2013

I love my Sunday mornings. My husband has already left to go ice fishing and I have the house to myself with the three girls. (my cats). As I drink my coffee, I started to plan my meals for the week. I haven't always been good at that. I usually have an idea, but today, I decided to really plan it out.

As my girls sit all around me....watching me......I glanced up at them in surprise...........

all my meals/snacks are power foods. Some snacks were left blank....but in excitement....I realized that I could swap them out with stove top cooked pudding ......or popcorn....or ...fruit. HEY......even my weeklies could come into play or my activity points.

Am I ready to follow the simply filling technique?

That has always been a goal of mine. I truly desire to do so, but I hold myself back because of .....carbs....the unfriendly ones.

YET.......since our meeting on healthy grains.....I have incorporated more into my week. WHY....just this past week I had LENTILS for the first time in my life! It wasn't bad.......it wasn't. I was more proud that I tried them than that I loved them. I felt so complete with that action. You would have thought that I had run a 5K or something the way I carried on!

So...here I am.....not only a full week of my meals/snacks 90% planned...they are power foods.

90% POWER FOODS.......

and I didn't even REALIZE it till I was done and reviewing my week.

I CHOOSE HEALTHY OPTIONS without struggle!

THIS IS HUGE!

THIS IS......

how I want to be.....all the time.....


Going to give it a whirl.....this simply filling way of life. I am actually NOT afraid to do so. I KNOW and understand my portions. For two weeks now I have reintroduced myself to measuring cups and the scale due in part to a recent meeting/demonstration our leader presented.

Yes....all this is common sense.....but .....no matter WHAT we may know.....we tend to ignore with a fleeting glance of ....yes....BUT....and then don't.

I sit in awe this Sunday morning.......

and realize.....

I am slowly getting it.........understanding it ....doing it.

and.....the games and ....the BUTS are not in play..........nor do I want them to be.


and......it really is alright.
