Day 216: The Happy Zone of Routine
Monday, March 07, 2011
With this newest adventure in my quest for health, I was on a high for the first two weeks. Now, the honeymoon is over, and now I've entered the happy zone of routine. Following WW is still relatively easy, as I get 48 daily points and fruit/veggies are free. I did struggle a couple of nights when Husband was traveling, but I realized that's because I didn't plan and instead tried to just "wing it."
I've been packing my lunch two to three days a week. I keep fat free salad dressings in my fridge at work and when I buy lunch it is usually a salad. The most amazing thing to me is that I cook. I love just opening the fridge and throwing in this and that and making a great casserole or egg dish that is tasty and totally on program.
Husband is quite supportive, asking if what he wants to eat will bother me. I'm careful not to ask when he will work on his health. I know more than anyone that he can't do it until he is well motivated.
I'm amazed that when I started a Facebook group called Heading Toward Health, over 20 of my Facebook friends wanted to join it. That group is now over 2 weeks old and is a neat place where people reach out for help, brag and just generally discuss whatever their plans might be. It's not limited to weight loss. Some people want to control their diabetes better, get their thyroid levels back on track, whatever.
In general, I'm happy. Sure hope this feeling lasts for more than a day and a half. I really, really like it.
I choose health.
