That is what this week has been. Not uneventful just boring in the diet part, the life style change part. For the first part of the week I had stomach problems but finally put two and two together and quit taking my fiber pills. With all the fresh veggies and an empty inside from last week I sure didn’t need any fiber. DUH!!! Oh well at least I figured that part out.
My eating has stabilized and am trying to do Debbi's 1-2-3-4-5 diet except for me it’s not the diet it’s just the numbers.
100 calorie snack 2 times a day, 300 calorie breakfast, 400 calorie lunch and 500 calorie dinner. Now that I have it memorized it’s going pretty good.
I have kept my calories very close to 1200-1300 calories a day and the fats, proteins and all in check. My mileage for walking wasn’t as high as some weeks, only about 8 miles this week but I did work out with my Wii three times so at least I’m moving. When school starts in two weeks I am going to go back to my floor exercises along with the Wii and walking. Since I’ll have less kids it’ll mean working a bit less hard so I’ll need it.
Tonight I was reading a local newspaper (well from the Twin Cities) and it’s State Fair time and they had an article called, Do the math: The calories add up. WOW was I amazed at what things totaled up too. Did you know that…..

And to think the Mini-Donuts use to be my most favorite thing at the fair. I’d eat two bags if I could. Good think this year I was thinking not about my tummy but about my life.
Well it’s time for bed. Tomorrow is shopping for my daycare’s “End of Summer” Party. Then I have got to mow. Take care my friends and have a blessed weekend.
