Happy Labor Day Monday to ya! Things here are starting to get back to normal. We had to let Charlie go live with Nana and Poppy this weekend. I think things for him will be much better and things will be much calmer for us. I hated to let him go but sometimes you have to do that. You have to take care of the dog as much as your family. So we are back to a one dog family and will most likely stay that way until this hound dog crosses over the rainbow bridge.
In weight loss progress I am seeing some changes. I am super excited because my experiment is working. Okay, not really an experiment but my plan. I already knew it would but it just proved to me this weekend that it does. I am eating very limited carbs because 1) I am a type 2 diabetic and it's better for me and 2) I can tell such a huge difference in my energy and my body when I do. Eating the right carbs is critical. I found that out this weekend. Last week I was doing wonderful and actually having to force myself to eat something. This weekend I made Zuchinni Banana Bread(recipe coming tomorrow) and had that for breakfast on Saturday. Bad idea... When I eat carbs like that in the mornings it seems to set me on a bad eating plan all day. It makes me want to eat all day long. So I have discovered ( already knew but had to prove it to myself) that eating low carb/high fiber items for breakfasts make my days go much smoother and less hungry feeling. So that's my discovery for the weekend ;) I lost .4 pounds this week so that is good. A small loss but nonetheless a loss. I also started the C25K program again this weekend. Hopefully I can get through it this time but we will have to see how my knees let me do. I am doing this so I am ready for the 5K I am walking in for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in November. BTW if you would like to you can stop by and make a donation to the team I am on. It goes straight to the American Cancer Society and it is very easy!!
We are taking a relaxing Monday today and back to school tomorrow. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead and a great Labor Day!!!
