Thanks so much for the feedback on the AIM posts! You don’t have to necessarily agree with someone’s opinion, which is a good thing and a wonderful way to open up dialogue on a topic! I also wanted to point out that even though my weight has been pretty stable over the last few years, it is not particularly easy for me. It is easier than it was at first, but not ever really easy. I always have to be vigilant now and in the future, which is a bit depressing to think about sometimes. I don’t miss being obese at all, but to be perfectly honest, I miss all the food I used to eat without thinking about it. Food is fun for me and I did enjoy eating with abandon. It’s just the price I paid for that abandon that sucked.
How I eat now sure is different!
Using up pantry staples per the monthly goals, I am working my way through the hot cereals. This is cream of wheat with egg whites whisked in, topped with almond butter and 1 tablespoon of special dark chips.
Sort of a reeses, but not really. 😀
I always seem to get hungry mid morning, even with a bigger breakfast (which this wasn’t), so I grabbed some fruit.
We have been having lots of warm weather lately. Guess it is making up for a cold start to spring? I have been wanting more yogurt lately, so I turned to my staple, which is plain greek yogurt with apple/cranberry topping.
Eaten at my work chair, as usual. Some habits just never go away. Work has just been so busy that I have been eating at my chair.
I know I have been remiss with the Pixie photos, so here are a couple. Sacked out:
This got her unsettled.
We say she looks frumpled when she is like this, which is kind of a cross between rumpled and frowsy.
Patented stir fry of chicken, broccoli and pineapple for dinner. In fact, it is so patented that I had it last night, too! 😀
Full accounting and I had this while dinner was cooking:
Free evening for both of us and with gorgeous weather, time for a ride! Part of the bike path was resurfaced, which is really nice. It’s firmer packed and doesn’t have a the sharp pieces of cinder that gave us flats before.
It’s nice to ride on now. The canal is looking pretty good, too.
I’m settling in for my snack in a bit. I started the day with a bit of chocolate and I will end the day with a bit of chocolate 😀
I know it isn’t Friday and What’s Blooming, but I thought I would share a pic I took last night of the garden.
There are even more tulips blooming today. It’s like an explosion out there!
