1 pound lost this week. I lost that pound I gained last week.
I think I've turned a corner in my relationship with my body. I'm much more comfortable listening to it and hearing what I really need in order to be my strongest and healthiest. Lately, I've been eating what I want, when I want.
What sounds good to me lately are salad greens with a combination of the following: shredded carrots, red pepper, cherry tomatoes, avocado, English cucumber, snap peas, baby squash, spinach, swiss chard, green beans, etc. And when I eat this stuff it's as though my body sighs in contentment. Even though I spent a week eating chocolate when I needed "drugs" for my back pain (see last week), I also ate lots of green stuff and I think that was the trick to being able to stay on track with my weight loss. It also made it easy to make wise choices while I was traveling last week, so I could stay on track with my goal of becoming stronger.
Good food is easy to eat and it's even better when it's the healthy, fresh food that my body craves.
