I've been able to hold msyelf steady with my eating this week. I'm not seeing any mad results on the scales. In fact the scales haven't budged since I guess Saturday or Sunday. But you know what. I've been active. (very active....gardening galore and zumba!) and I've not binged on the unhealthy foods. So I consider that a success...even if the scales are not being friendly at this time!
Yes, I've spent a lot of time gardening. I sometimes giggle. Our garden has more square feet than our house! haa haa haa. We have a HUGE garden. (my strawberry beds have over 100 plants...and we are seriously contemplating clearing the land and doubling that....I eat a LOT of strawberries....I LOVE strawberries!) So you can see we plant a LOT of what we plant. Let me rephrase that. The foods that we eat a LOT of...we plant a LOT. Green beans anyone? I'll be canning bushels upon bushels of green beans. I eat them almost every day. :-) Peas? Well, we eat a lot of peas too. Tomatoes...well you need a lot of those because I make my own tomato sauce...not to mention canned tomatoes for things like chili and such. And yes, i try to preserve enough so that we don't have to buy these staples from the store. Home preserved foods are SOOO much tastier. Soooo yes, our garden is a big deal! over the weekend I spent probably more than 15 hours out there with the tiller, the shovel, a rake, packets of seeds, flats of plants, compost, water hose and a big jug of water. :-) (the water jug was for me!) Love to see the garden take shape. :-)
