Back to Day One

Dear readers, trapped in the nuisance of dieting I’ve lost track of the days.

For starters, my husband got on the dieting train and he’s done much better than me.

I’ve mostly been haunted by PMS.  I’m still wondering why in the heck am I still getting periods at my age.  I will be more than happy when my period goes away forever.

Now getting back on track is going to take some willpower.

For me it’s all about the cheese.  I love to eat cheese!

As I write  this post some cheese and crackers are laughing at me.  Teasing me, luring me into just taking a bite.  They  know I’m not suppose to snack on them.  However, my grandma would always say, “El que rie ultimo, rie mejor” which means thee who laughs at the end, laughs with more joy.

So, if I were the cheese that’s in the refrigerator and the crackers in the pantry, I would be extremely quiet because I could use some carbohydrates right now.

Which leads us to the most important part of this all.

Tomorrow I’m at Day 1 all over again.

And this time I intend to go straight to Day 10 without hesitation. Why Day 10?  Well, because those first ten days are crucial to staying on track.  My husband already is feeling the benefits of dieting, his size 36 pants need a tighter belt for fitting.

Finally I just need to add one word to this, FOCUS.

It has to become my mantra for pulling this off.  Each time temptation comes around the corner, I need to repeat FOCUS.

FOCUS on feeling better,

FOCUS on walking better,

FOCUS on living better, and so much more.

And don’t forget to do something that makes someone’s day better;  make me company on my way to wellness; and, repeat my mantra FOCUS.

Day 4: The Pasta Daze

Dear readers, these past few days have been challenging.

I’ve felt like a character of Poe’s  story “The Tell Tale Heart”, but instead of a heartbeat it’s more like a screaming cinnamon bagel that’s calling me.

I’m holding my own (if you don’t count my midnight bagel crime) or my cravings for some Pizza Hut pasta. Yogurts and salads will have to do.

  • Two things are keeping me motivated: one, my husband who is dieting with me, and; two, I don’t want mobility issues this coming Christmas.

So, I should place next to the pasta a picture of my walking cane, as a reminder to which way I want to go.

Remember, be kind to yourself and make me some company on my road to wellness.

MG Diet: Getting Back To Where I Was

Dear readers, it’s not about looking young (good luck with that), it’s about being able to walk. So, today is a great day to begin getting there. 

Day 1: so far, so good.

Not bad at all, Rosemary & Olive Oil Flatbread, veggies and some cilantro with a tiny stick of Sargento cheese.

Now desert as an issue if you live with a 5- year old. 

Let’s walk our way to wellness together.
