Good morning blogland!
I’m off work today and Suzie let me sleep until almost 7 o’clock this morning, hooray!
We were supposed to be going to King’s Island with a group of kids from our church but late last night, more and more things kept falling through so we decided to postpone until a later date. What to do with a day off? Hmm…clean?
Breakfast this morning was my usual banana-PB oatmeal. I did buy just a few bananas at the store this weekend but I also grabbed a container of blueberries, which I’m planning on trying tomorrow morning, assuming I have oatmeal 😉
I wonder what blueberries + PB taste like, I can’t remember if I’d had it. Anyone know?
I really need to get some exercise today but I’m not sure what to do — it’s already way too hot outside for any walking or running, so I think I’m going to have to stick indoors. Maybe the C&K routine, some yoga downloads and hardcore cleaning will do it. Ok, maybe not all of those things but you catch my drift 😉
On the weight front, I am happy to say that things are moving in the right direction again. It’s been two weeks since I started eating less sugar (and more veggies + protein) and I feel great, healthy and my pants are loosening up. I have weighed myself the past two Mondays but I’m going to keep that info to myself for now.
Warning : Possible TMI ahead!
I’ve never mentioned it on much on the blog but there were many days out of the week that I would be bloated and plagued with painful gas which I had never been able to determine the cause of. In the Summer of 2008, I assumed it was a lactose intolerance so I cut out dairy and that seemed to work temporarily. Then when I ate a piece of cheese a few months later and nothing happened, I went back to eating dairy with no additional effects.
Then I just assumed I was eating too many gas-inducing vegetables or beans so I tried to be careful with that too. I’d honestly just started to live with it. It wasn’t every day. I guess it just happens, right?
But these past two weeks, well, it hasn’t really happened at all! In fact, my stomach is even starting to look flatter. I wore a shirt last night to dinner that I hadn’t felt comfortable wearing in a LONG time and it looked better last night than it ever has. I guess I was eating too much sugar and grains, duh.
I’m so glad I started this new way of eating and I’m so thankful to Heather for putting the idea in my head in the first place!
Have a great Monday everybody.
