I literally have done nothing today. Ok..I took a shower today at 11:30am and made some cherrio/peanut butter/marshmellow bars. I had about 1 1/2 of them and then I read though JackSh*t‘s post today Snakes and Ladders. He discusses the idea that weight-loss isn’t easy and it’s about getting your head in the game. He ends it with this
It’s not easy, and it’s not a game. It’s your life and a roll of the dice isn’t what gets you moving. It’s just you.
It’s so true. For me…it’s about eating foods that I can’t eat. It sounds SO stupid…to say that I still struggle with giving up gluten, sugar…it’s true. Today I made the cherrio bars and there’s NOTHING in them that I should be eating and yet I ate 1 1/2 of them. I didn’t binge (woo hoo). However, I read this and thought to myself ‘I can write all I want, I can b*tch all I want…but I have to get my head into the game’. I took my shower and thought about it. I’ve written about my struggles with binging, I’ve written about my struggles with body image and I’ve come to accept my body the way that it is. However, I feel sometimes that I still identify myself with the foods that I can’t eat. Still longing after them like a relationship that just isn’t over yet.
My head hasn’t totally been in the game…I stand to admit this. I am Michelle, and my head hasn’t been totally in the game.
But like JackSh*t says..it’s totally up to me. So I take a stand…My head is in the game. It’s in the mothertruckin’ game because I want AM healing my body and I want AM finding a health weight for my body.
After going through this mental conversation with myself, I got back on track this afternoon.
Veggie Burger Egged Salad
- 1/4 onion
- 1/3 zucchini
- 1 tsp EVOO
- 1 egg
- 3 TB organic salsa
It was so yummy. However, I was a tab hungry about 2 1/2 hour later so I had one of my most favourite things..Iced berries. Have you ever done this before?
- 1 c. frozen blueberries–place in a bowl
- 1/3-1/2c. scant 1/4 c. cold milk of your choosing–pour right over the berries
- 1-2 tsp. sweetener of your choice–I used xylitol
- 1 TB vegan chocolate chips
Then stir up and the milk gets iced over. It’s honestly like eating ice cream. I LOVE IT. It’s such a healthy snack and the 1-2 tsp of sweetner with a moderate chocoalte chip sprinkling is just what you need. It just satisfies everything for me.
Ok…I am off to look through some pictures for the secret Christmas present for my Dad. Here’s one more picture to tease you..I hope that he isn’t reading 🙂
Pippin says hi.
Have you ever tried Berries on Ice?
