Marnie is also teaching me to celebrate my success! I find that blogging provides a fun way for me to do that, as I enjoy sharing my successes and my challenges. It's turning out to be a great tool for supporting me in my goals. There is a sort of accountability, to myself, to step up and make progress every day. Just like the Yarn Along helps me to stay motivated on my crochet and knitting projects. I know how much I enjoy seeing what others have done, so I want to give back the same to anyone stopping by my blog.
So here is how my eating went today, and it was a HUGE improvement over anything happening in a very long time:
Brown and wild rice with stir-fried veggies.
Organic corn tortilla with cheese, fresh salsa, kale, and avocado.
Collard greens, blueberries, strawberries, and banana.
Such pretty colors...right before I pushed the button to
"reconfigure" into teeny, tiny liquified bits.
Salad (using a bit more rice) with pasta.
|Joaquin loves salad and pasta!|
Here is one of my favorite salad dressing recipes:
4 TBSP fresh-squeezed Lemon Juice
2 TBSP extra-virgin Olive Oil
2 cloves Garlic, crushed
1/2 TBSP raw Agave Nectar
1/2 tsp Tarragon
1/4 tsp Basil
1/4 tsp Oregano
1/2 tsp fresh ground Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
I am especially proud, and need to celebrate here for a moment, the fact that I made this healthy food happen today when I was still sick. I am very motivated because I have been sick a LOT this year and I am tired of it. Plus, I thought I'd see if Marnie was right and it was just as easy as preparing my frozen food and eating junk. Turns out she was right! I expect this won't be the last time, either. Of course my inner critic tried to spoil it all by saying that I ate a bit too much today...too many calories. How 'bout we all just tell her to SHUT UP!
