Good morning friends!
In an attempt to simplify, I went through my blogger list, and removed a bunch of blogs that haven’t been updated in the last six months – year. I am surprised at how many there are! If you have a blog, and you don’t update it anymore, I hope that you are still around and working on your health in some way. Stay connected! You are worth it! And if you post a new post, let me know, so I can re-add your blog to my support list.
That being said, for some reason this season has been very difficult, and I understand. We woke up to snow, again, and I am ready for the weather to warm up. It’s always hard every spring for me here in Idaho, because I feel as if the weather should be warming up, but it’s just not time yet. *sigh*
My return to reduced carb, working out, cutting out the elastic clothing, and throwing away all the offensive beauty products is beginning to have an effect. My weight is coming back down, hooray! 145.4 this morning, down from last week’s ugly 148. I am fully aware that there is a lot of water weight in there, but that doesn’t discount the loss at all!
I am limiting my carbohydrates, but not strictly counting them or avoiding bread. I am limiting my breads to high fiber products. This has worked well for me in the past, and I enjoy eating this way. It works out to maybe one carb serving per meal, give or take. I am having a hard time separating carbs from fats, Trim Healthy Mama style, but I haven’t given up on it yet. I’m just kind of taking a break and focusing on low carb right now.
This week we are all recovering again from being sick over the weekend. Another reason to be ready for spring! Everyone on the house got sick at nearly the same time this time, with a horrible cold, so at least it will all get over sooner, I guess.
I did more research, and apparently Spandex is not a rubber product – hooray! It can still be in clothing that contains rubber, so there is going to be a grey area where I have to just try them and see, but that is good news.
