Just chugging a long in another good week. I’ve stayed off sugary foods for about twenty days now. Friday and Saturday were difficult days with cravings hitting at odd times; for instance a craving hit in a used book store. Looking at old, stinky stacks of books was fun but the aisles were narrow and hot. I started feeling a bit nauseous and decided to just go with what I had in hand.
Remember our conversation a couple of weeks ago? Yeah, they had fudge and other goodies stacked around the registers. That fudge knew my name. Holly smacked me in the arm to get my attention off the candy. I walked away with a couple of books (old gothics by Clarissa Ross), a couple of cds and a small bag of pretzels. I thought the pretzels were a good compromise.
On Saturday Holly, Faith and I went to Hershey Gardens. After a lot of walking in unaccustomed heat, the long and short of it is I ended up in a wheelchair to get back to the car. I guess my body just needed to refuel so the craving hit hard but I was able to ignore it and drink lemonade and lots of water when we got to Bob Evans. I ordered yummy roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, carrots, and green beans. I only ate half of it, saving the rest for lunch the next day.
This week’s goals are to eat more fruits and veggies. I got a good start this last week but I need to eat more. Walking is another goal, but not all in one day; walks in a shorter distance should be what I’m doing.
This week’s reason to stay off the sugar and lose weight: there’s no sense in being old, fat and bald. I can’t do anything about the first item but the other two I’m working on. I notice the less sugar I eat, the less hair I have in my brush.
Here’s some music to enjoy:
