It is hard sometimes to do the
right thing. That is why it is so important to make positive habits. The first
7 days when you want to initiate a new habit is probably the hardest. You
consciously make the right decisions for the first 5 days. But then after that
your old habits kick in and it is easy to lose control. You tell your friends
that you can't eat lunch with them. It's difficult. But you have to do it. You
have to be strong. Reply to them, if you were my friend you wouldn't be
tempting me like this. And then you do the right thing.
I went for a walk today. Three miles over muddy paths. There was some ice, but
mostly mud. My pants got a little muddy. They are washable.
Breakfast today was an 8 ounce glass of milk and 8 ounce glass of orange juice.
I only had one serving of grits. One egg, scrambled. And get this, no butter.
Probably saved 200 calories for breakfast alone. Lunch consisted of 2 slices of
bread, mayo, slice of bologna, slice of turkey and a slice of Colby Jack
cheese. I rounded it all off with green beans and an apple.
Dinner was a little more calories and fat calories intensive. I had two tacos,
with grated cheese, salsa, a couple of dollops of sour cream, a taco shell, and
lettuce. For dessert, I enjoyed a piece of banana bread. I also had a few small
slices of cheese with my dinner, leftover from the superbowl party.
No candy today and no snacking during the day. An excellent day. I hope you
also did well today! Good luck today and have a great day!
