Just 4 Today, I’ll drink my fiber twice (done it once so far!), drink 2 liters of water (about 1/3), walk 3 miles (yesterday, nearly 4 all told), NOT eat between meals & NOT take seconds.
The bad news is that some time ago I got in the habit of walking several blocks down the street to a diner/bakery for a cup of coffee and occasionally getting a treat at the bakery. It’s like my brain shuts off when I’m in there and because I like these people and it smells good, I just HAVE to buy an apple fritter. It’s insane, really. Do you know how many calories there are in an apple fritter? I just looked it up yesterday: 650.
650 calories in an apple fritter
And that is more, way more, than enough to ruin your life. So I walked 4 miles yesterday, so what? That still left 250 calories completely untouched from the fritter. And (because sometime yesterday I snapped back into focus) I also tested my blood sugar — it was high-ish for the rest of the day (160.)
Here’s the thing, I was sick for a long time with that sinus infection. And during that time stopped posting here. I think I gradually drifted into some “I’m sick I can do something enjoyable” habits. But now I’m well, I’m accountable and I’m not here to tell you about the fried pasteries I’m eating. And I’m not here to lie.
So also (just today) I’m going to work on getting my focus back.
What are you going to do today?
