It's Friday and..............

So as not to concentrate on the ICMYT blog line I will work on getting some pictures to post, things I have worked on and also still post about my ICMYT foods for the day.

This morning I did pretty good. I love avocados and will purchase 2 or 3 a week. I had 2/3 of a fresh one mashed with some seasonings for brekkie with some crackers. Usually, I would devour the ENTIRE THING! (And go looking to make more.) My 14yo brought me a piece of cinnamon roll toast and am feeling a bit over stuffed now. That will burn off and all will be good with the world.

Later am going to "find" the camera and take picture of the "deer beds", my washed Pathfinder... and whatever else sounds intriguing. (I know where the camera is stashed, but my 17yo camera nut keeps taking pictures after being told to leave said camera ALONE! grrrr)

Many blessings!

ICMYT entry for today......

I finally weighed myself today before I ate. I was fully dressed to the shoes as it is cool in the house this morning since we had a freeze last night. 135 pounds. I weighed that much at term when I was pregnant with my first son 17 yrs ago!

I have been following the rules and its been pleasantly refreshing. Eating only when I am hungry, savoring my food, and taking home to go boxes for when I am full, or getting smaller servings. Feeling like its okay to cover the dish when I am full and putting it away in the fridge. (even if i dont eat it later - it still has the opportunity to not be wasted before dumping it in the trash)

When you are hungry, EAT.
Eat what you want, not what you think you should.
Eat CONSCIOUSLY and enjoy every mouthful.
When you think you are full, STOP eating.

This morning though, I wanted walnuts. And what better way to enjoy walnuts but with some vanilla ice cream and choc. syrup! I know.. not exactly healthy -- but I do make it a point to find healthy things I enjoy the rest of the day. Will keep you posted. 1 scoop and just a small splash of choc syrup and yep, am full... YUM!! Plus a few handfuls of walnuts because I really enjoy them plain too!!

My eating the last few days has lessened and I do not feel like am starving at all any. I make sure not to get "famished" before I find something to eat. Even if I have to get a small snack from the store if I am out and about.

Update: I had a ham sammy for a snack because I was hungry before lunch. And at lunch I will have to admit I goofed up and stuffed my self to overflowing. Though I didnt clean my plate entirely. We went out to eat and well -- mexican is a favorite so I throughly enjoyed it. (Suffering the side effects now... *snooze button*)

To finish out my day I had "snack foods" for dinner because I got running late to get to work. Reese's peanut butter cups, chips and a frozen strawberry bar...... Will do better tomorrow night for dinner!

Many blessings!

(PS am very much looking forward to episode 2!!!)
