Day One Hundred & Twenty Seven…

I started my Sunday working out and having an amazing breakfast. It is still crazy to me that this entire meal was only 1sp. The Mini Babybell cheese was one point. I elected to have a 1/2 cup of nonfat Greek yogurt instead of the full cup.  It was an extremely satisfying meal. I took a half hour to eat it all:

I kept true to my word and began reading my materials today. I started with:

I like to jot notes while I read and talk back to the text. I think the one thing that stands out to me is that #Freestyle does not require us to track, weigh, and measure 0 point foods. I am going to ignore most of that, for now. Perhaps when I am at Lifetime I will follow that recommendation. However, for now, given that I am still working towards goal I want to gather as much information about myself as possible. Also, I am still learning about serving sizes and linking that my internal hunger cues.

I prepared the recipe that was in this week’s materials. It was Roasted Chicken, Squash, and Peppers I really enjoyed it. I also made some spaghetti to go with it. I wanted some carbs and it was easy to work in the points to my day. However, while I tracked it all –  I did not weigh my chicken. I ate most of it and when I felt satisfied I actually cut up the rest for a wrap to eat at work tomorrow.

That is new. I am happy about this because I think that is a very big deal for me. In the past, if I prepared food I typically just ate it will little thought as to how satisfied I felt. The feeling of satisfaction was more of an afterthought rather than something to be sought out. This seems like an important shift in my mindset.

On a personal note – when my mother passed away, she left me her watch.  It was always tight and uncomfortable to wear. Not anymore… this is what progress looks like.

Mom's Watch
I love you, mom. It would make her happy to know I am wearing her watch.
