Today is my first day back to exercise (after back injury) and am allowed to do something easy (like Leslie Sansone´s walking). I got sick over the weekend, virus with pharingitis...my first time down since I began exercising in Sept. 09. Thanking the Lord that I can move again, because I feel so much better when I do .
Although I´m really not as dedicated as you think I am, thankful for each of you who have written to encourage me. Many times during the recovery days, I´d just feel like what was the use of keeping on? Then I´d read one of your post encouraging me to just hang in there, and I´d straighten up my "poor me" attitude and just ask the Lord to help me to maintain my weight while I was recovering.
Food choices on Sunday were kind of difficult - we celebrated our church´s anniversary - and there were many yummy - very unhealthy choices : )
Sunday - breakfast: oatmeal with raisins, fresh squeezed o.j. and whole wheat toast - 3 points
lunch - rice with a little sauce and a flan (spanish custard) and cookies - no points
supper - 1 sandwhich (chicken, tomato and lettuce) & 1 piece of strawberry torte. minus 4 points.
Monday - breakfast: big slice of fresh pineapple, herbal tea and rice cake w/ peanut butter and honey, bran cereal - 4 points
lunch - small portion of fish, salad (lettuce, tomato, cucumber & asparragus) small serving of vegetable pasta with steamed broccoli and a little cheese. - 3 points.
supper - 2 eggs with toast. - 1 point
snack - a.m. sf chocolate square w/ nuts - 1 point
snack - p.m. slice of fresh pineapple and wasa cracker with goose liver (foie grass) - 1 point
post - 1 point
Keeping track of the food has been helpful in remembering to make good healthy choices. We did actually have a sunny - no rain - day today, so it feels like Spring is in the air and I´m ready to get back to "springing", for sure.
