Each day has its ups and downs and it is definitely easy to focus on the downs and let them get the better of you. I’m a little bit of a worrier and it’s difficult for me to get past the worrying sometimes, but I’m working on it. When hard times hit, the easy solution is to find the things that comfort instead of the things that solve.
Comfort comes in many forms, food, relaxation, even bad habits. Funny thing is though, habits that don’t enhance us, make us feel bad and then there are two (or more) reasons to be upset. I’ll be working on good habits for the next couple of days to stop focusing on the bad.
For today, the summer slim down is still in full swing. I was so happy when I got an invite to go for a run this morning…at 0515. Which means I woke up at 0500.
Do you see, I’m not lying. I woke up 1 minute before my alarm. That is my phone as I reached over this morning and groaned. yes, that’s my screensaver. I love it. The 0459 wake up, I don’t love that so much. I also don’t love massive humidity. I haven’t sweated that much in a long time.
My diet is still good, not great, but good. Perhaps I always feel like I can do better, even though I really feel like I have a pretty solid diet. I think we can all do better.
This deliciousness below was a product of my mind that is always on food. I thought, “I love chicken Alfredo and I love soup, so why isn’t there a chicken Alfredo soup?”
Holy moly, it doesn’t get much better (I’m pretty sure I say that about every recipe). It’s really good. Good eating doesn’t have to be all bad for you. This was made with low fat milk, white meat lean chicken, onions, garlic, olive oil and broccoli. Throw in some semolina pasta and a little cheese and you feel like you’re super sinful.
I’ll be continuing on for another week and I’m ready to wear those shorts (crossing my fingers on that one) after this slim down.
Until tomorrow…stay healthy my friends.
