winning the battle - week 10

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.

P.S. Chocolate still is gooood.

You're so right, healthy food is just so good. Processed foods = bad news. But chocolate? I believe there is always room for chocolate.

There must be a Tim Tam somewhere around here ...

Christine!!! Yeah! How are you doing? Are you coming to visit some time soon? Hey I have to tell you about a book I just bought. It's called the Gabriel Method and I'm liking it. I'm always on a diet and this book is making me think a little differently. Go to the website gabrielmethod.com and check it out. Let me know what you think. For me, it's totally changed how I think and act toward foods. Just thought you might be interested. If you're interested in the book don't buy it off the website. It's pricey. Amazon has it for $10 I think. But on another note I miss you! It's fun to see your life through Facebook and your blog. Thanks for the book reviews too. I love getting a recommendation from someone you trust! Have a great Sabbath. Talk to you soon. Love, Lisa
