Day One Hundred Sixty-Eight…

We are expecting snow just in time for the first day of winter break. So, in keeping with the season, I have been in the house, wait for it, cooking! This is what I’ve made so far:

I need my food to be varied and colorful. I do rely on staples like Fage 0% Greek YogurtJoseph’s Pitas, and Boar’s Head Ovengold Turkey but mixed in with that I need other foods so I don’t get bored. I want to make this a lifestyle change, not a life sentence!  I’m spending this week thankfully at home, and now that I have some time, I am looking forward to planning out some new recipes for dinner.

If you have any suggestions, please post them in my comments box. I fixed it so it is easier to leave comments.

I want my last words to you today to be about risk. Whenever I think about what I really want, like reaching my weight loss goals, there is an element of insecurity and risk. Wanting something so badly comes with vulnerability – what if I don’t achieve it and now I let everyone in the world know that it’s something I really want?  Fear is the voice that tells me that I can’t do it or that I’m not enough or that even if I get what I want it will be a gift I can’t keep.

The thing is, it’s not a gift – it’s an extension of my own power.  Arbitrary doubts will hinder what is possible, and just being alive is a risk. I can either embrace it or run from it. I have decided to embrace it and let the chips fall where they may. I have decided to trust myself well enough to believe that if I try I will be successful.  I have decided that the world can be a beautiful place where there are people who want to support you just because they are kind and good.  I believe this for me and I believe it for you too.  So, if you believe me, then let’s go for broke and do this-this, is our year to get to goal.
