I spent most of Tuesday morning blogging about whether I spend too much time thinking about food. After I posted my questionable blog, I went to try the treadmill for the second time since surgery. My goal was 10 minutes, since the first time, my surgery shoulder started throbbing at 15 minutes. Well, I happily and slowly made it to 25 minutes before any throbbing began and I was able to get in a mile.
When I got on the treadmill, I immediately turned on the TV and changed the channel to the Food Network. While watching Giada prepare pasta, my mouth began to water and I started planning dinner in my head.
Okay, fine. Reality. I really do spend a lot of time thinking about food. We had pasta for dinner. 🙂
Since being home for 2 1/2 weeks and not working, and not running errands and not cooking, I have had a lot of free time on my hands. It has really only been the past few days though that I have felt like doing much. I am so glad Roberta came over on Sunday and we formed a plan, because I could feel myself slipping into lots of negative thinking. I feel much better.
Since I am a bit homebound awhile longer, I will change from reading recipes to reading my new book, “Younger Next Year for Women” and tell you what I like about it.
Geeezzzzz, what should I snack on while I read? Kidding….kidding……kidding. Everybody calm down.
Here is my WW online journal. I will post this for a while and see how I like doing that. It shows my daily points eaten at the top left. It shows what I have remaining from my 49 extra points. It shows activity points earned. A green triangle identifies a Power Food! The star means its a favorite, which means it is something I eat regularly. Then the green boxes at the right are self explanatory and I do get a sense of satisfaction by being able to check some of those off! I always forget to check the vitamin box, but I do take one. I’ll work on that. I usually get a teaspoon of oil in somewhere, but have never been in a habit of checking that box either?
