To Everything There is a Season
Monday, November 14, 2011
I started last night with a dinner full of veggies: a healthier take on squash casserole, potatoes, carrots and mushrooms with the entree, steamed fresh green beans. There was also a lean meat, and no extra carbs in the form of breads.
I allowed myself a small brownie with some light ice cream for dessert, and when I found myself a little hungry later on, I munched on banana chips.
This morning I woke and took my resting pulse (51 - the lowest its ever been - woot!), then proceeded with some core exercises before I rose, then marching in place through my shower and other personal hygiene items, to get my heart rate up a bit, and kick-start my metabolism for the day.
I then prepared myself a breakfast with 327 calories, 23 grams of protein and only 8 grams of fat. I consumed it slowly, enjoying each bite, and allowing my body time to recognize that it was being fed.
I also remembered to take my multi-vitamin, anti-depressant, and birth control.
I even did a light dusting of color on my cheeks and eyes, because feeling like I look pretty makes me feel better and more motivated.
Today, I started well. And for now, that is an excellent springboard.
