Who knew I had eyes, they're open wider now.
Saturday, January 28, 2017
So we sit and muddle through lists of foods to add to our breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack #1, snack #2. As we do this we seem to forget that we have a lower jaw until it hits the desk. We push our lower jaw in place and then our eyes suddenly pop out. Ok, now we shove our eyes back into our sockets and realize we are hyperventilating. We slow down our breathing and finally recover from the shock of neglect. Yes, you read that right. We've realized how badly we've neglected our lovely bodies. I say lovely because they ARE lovely; neglected but lovely. We see where we've been so wrong in our choices. That Jimmy Dean sausage link (1 link) is so much fat that I could eat a slice of Ezekial toast with two TBSP of peanut butter and have less fat. I could also have two hard boiled eggs and get less fat and more protein. More food, better returns on the energy from them.
We worry so much how our hair looks, our makeup, and for the guys, well, I'm sure you worry how nice your car looks or your motorcycle, perhaps your boat. I hate to break it to you (and myself) but if we don't take care of our bodies we're not going to need to worry about all those other things.
As I sat recording all the meals that I managed to put together for myself and my mother, who is starting this with me, I imagined how I wanted to feel in ten years, twenty years, etc. Wouldn't you know it, I don't want to be so lame from poor health that I can't walk. Oh, NO. No way. I want to walk, I want to be energized. Don't you?
Yes! I have eyes and they are now WIDE open. ~Health is mine to Own~
We CAN do this!
