I am listening to the latest No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency books. Blue Shoes and Happiness. They are sweet simple stories about a woman in Botswana Africa. She is a "traditionally built" woman. This means of course that she is heavy. I have never seen the show on HBO, but I love the books. In this book she decides to go on a diet. All her litle "insights" about going on a diet are cute....and so true. My favorite is how it's human nature that when you decide to restict ANYTHING you always end up wanting more of it. How she thought that was funny, until she herself was on a diet, now not so funny. How she gets crabby when she's hungry. I could so relate and it made me smile. People, we are more alike then we are different. The book is written by a white man, which I think is great. See, more alike then we are different.
I have my grandkids birthday party today. My daughter, "C," is doing 2 kids in one party. They are still young enough that they don't care. It's a party for the adults too. We are going swimming and eating pizza. I am going to bring grilled KFC to eat. That way I won't even start on the pizza. At least that is my intention. I love that grilled chicken. If the nutitional stuff on thir website is true, then a breast is 4 pts. It should be a nice time. I will post some pics.
My food is still not the best, but not the worse either. I think missing Weight Watchers really messed me up this week. I tried to save $13. Since Monday was a holiday, I don't have to pay double. When I first started I kind of just ate less and kept a "sort of" total running in my head. I wasn't stressed about food, I just ate less and tried to eat good healthy foods. It worked. It's what I've done this week. We'll see if it is still going to work Monday night. I feel heavier...but then of course that's all in my head. Pants don't fit any different.
I got my 3 miles in before 6 am. It is nice to get it out of the way early. I really enjoy the women that I walk with. Sometimes I wish I could just put on an Ipod and go myself. I love to listen to podcasts. But I spend too much time alone as it is, so I try to go with a buddy. Lately my mind has been messing me up. Too much stinking thinking. So I have been trying to avoid ALONE. It's working.....feeling grateful today. That is my most favorite feeling.
