The 1st of my 4-Day Wins is complete and I'll call it a success - water and planning. My reward - which I'll try to get tomorrow or the next day, is a water bottle so I can nix Dasani and Aquafina.
And now that I think about it, the 2nd of my 4-Day wins is complete - logging and journaling. I did a good of posting on MyFoodDiary.com so I'll count that as the journaling and I logged. The reward - time on Ravelry. Guess where I'm headed next?
I also bought two health related books this week - Wini Linguvic's Lean and Strong - a strength training program for women. And a book called the Zen of Eating by Ronna Kabatznick. I was in the used bookstore yesterday looking for the last of Nora Robert's Sign of Seven trilogy - The Pagan Stone - and saw the Zen of Eating. It looked interesting and appealed to the part of me that is wanting more balance and peace with my quest for a healthy weight.
Refuse to Regain has two interesting blog entries - one about our mindset when it comes to taking advice about eating. I posted a very long reply about my experience at Emory while on Optifast. The other post is about the state of food in our country. I have only skimmed it, but will be going back for a closer read. This is one of my soapbox issues and I have to be careful to not get to caught up in it.
And just to make my life more complicated - I HAD to make this recipe I saw while at the beauty salon last weekend- Upside-Down Cherry Corn-Cake. It was supposed to be grilled, but I baked it. And I pitted 4 cups of fresh cherries. It looks wonderful - can't wait to try a small piece tonight. I'll be taking leftovers to the office tomorrow.
