oven grilled asparagus drizzled with extra virgin olive oil,
red seedless grapes,
2 eggs scrambled with spinach, mushroom and just a dash of feta.
yumm.this is my new goal. i feel like i have been having a pretty strong emotional battle in my brain as of late. i have struggled with the weight of my body my entire life. i actually lost weight after i got married (apparently that is a time you put it on) and then had Campbell. and by his first birthday i was at my lowest weight ever. then pregnant with Mason. after her birth i flew into weight watchers head strong. got to my new lowest weight ever. to only find myself pregnant again.
well, here is my emotional battle: i don't really want to go back to weight watchers. its an excellent program, but i just don't want to spend the rest of my life counting every ounce of what i eat. so how do i get back down to my old size? i still have 19 pounds to go. that is a lot.
next week i can be given the green light to exercise.
will exercise alone work?
i know i have a great starting point- because i do know what choices aren't the best to make as far as eating. but that doesn't mean i want to pass up on foods that are fun to eat.
exercise and moderation. water and the colors of the rainbow.
my goal- to be eating more fruits and veggies. my biggest goal is to try and get at least 3 servings of veggies in one meal. salads. i love love love salad. and i have been taking the time to add them back into my diet.
i don't want to be watching the number i weigh so intently that i stop enjoying life. i mean, technically i am just 1 quarter of a pound away from being in a healthy bmi.
well, i could waste valuable time taking about this.
i just want to pray that i will find my self-worth in what i should. but not let that be an excuse to gorge.
who knows, maybe i'll just end up pregnant again and this won't even be an issue.
but i will still eat the colors of the rainbow.
