Friday was another one of those less than focused days. It started out well.
The makings of a good breakfast…
AND it was delicious!! Vanilla non-fat yogurt, strawberries, blueberries and Fiber One. Excellent start.
The rest of the day actually went well in reference to food. Fruit for lunch, a Clif Bar as a late afternoon snack before I went on an adventure.
The adventure was a meditation evening at Serenity Harbor. It was really interesting and intriguing. But it’s been hard to process what actually happened. I could tell I was in a group of true believers and that makes it so much better. Everyone believed they’d be experiencing something from the meditation.
I’ve meditated on my own, but only once or twice with a guided meditation. Never before with a meditation with a specific intention. The intention of this meditation was to meet your Master Spirit Guide. Several people felt that they did experience something and met a spirit. I have to be honest that I am still processing what happened to me. I have to do some thinking about it before I share anything about it. I know that I do want to attend one of these evenings again at the next opportunity. It was fascinating!
Dinner when I came home was another of my salads with black beans. It was delicious and I was really hungry…too hungry to take the time for a photo! I was a little concerned about eating so late, about 9:30pm, but it didn’t seem to have a negative effect on my results at Weight Watchers.
I am happy to report that I lost a quarter of a pound. Doesn’t sound like much, right?? Well, think about it as a stick of butter, because that’s what it is. The stick of butter is an easily understood visualization of a quarter pound. Well that’s pretty good especially since I ate so late. However, still have another pesky stick of butter to lose to get to my personal goal. I’ve been working hard and I feel I should be able to accomplish that in the next week.
It makes me a little nervous talking that way at the moment. The reason is that I’m reading Unbearable Lightness by Portia de Rossi.
She talks a lot about just getting to that next lower number and how she controlled and limited her food. It’s scary to hear her talk about it in the book and it is making me think a lot about how I am currently controlling my food. I feel that I’m doing it in a healthy way with the help of Weight Watchers and I don’t think I’d ever fall into that trap. It certainly is something to think about though.
There was another adventure after our WW meeting this morning with my WW tribe. More about that tomorrow. Trying to decide if I NEED to go to the county library book sale. I know I don’t NEED to, but as always…I WANT to. Which side will win?? Don’t know yet. You’ll all be the first to know what happens!
