So I’m totally motivated these days on my quest for a better life. I’ve been really good about going to the gym lately and taking walks with the dogs both the days I go to the gym and the days I don’t go. The scales even showed a 1kg loss after a few days- 2.2lbs for you Americans reading this. 1kg isn’t much but it’s a start and I think it’s smart to rejoice in every kilo down rather then think about the 24-29kg left I have to lose!! As Bob said in the movie, What About Bob, “Baby steps…”
I’ve been reading a lot about what breakfast is recommended to get the best start out of your day and below my friends is a breakfast of champions-
This is homemade oatmeal with raisins, cinnamon, chopped almonds, and honey. As much as I dislike the consistency of this stuff and the taste is a bit bland for my taste buds, this really does fill me up for the whole morning and keeps me going. I know that many of the health nuts out there would eat this stuff without the honey and perhaps the raisins, but hello, I plan on making this a lifestyle and one thing I couldn’t stand is if someone said I could never eat this or that…then I rebel and eat it…so my motto is everything within reason.
I had my chicken curry sandwich for lunch today at work and the kids were all watching me eat as they ate their plain little whole grain breads with liver patè or strawberry jam…I had to laugh. I made an extra point of making a bunch of “mmmmmm” sounds while I was eating…hahaha..
My kids are doing a great job of cheering me on in this quest for a new life and even the dogs are doing their best to motivate me- my “little” baby Bently has been cheering me on in the best viking style…don’t you think?
I wrote something on my facebook profile today which got a few appreciative comments and I’ll share with you..I thought it was rather clever and I came up with it all by myself!
I'm thinking I'll be rich by the end of today...Rich on the experiences I'll have, rich on the people I'll meet, and rich on the smiles I'll see! Have a rich day everyone!!
Don’t you think that is clever? I never stop amazing myself with what I come up with…hehehe…
Have a great day folks..Until next time..
