Happy Friday folks!!
Thanks for stopping by and for all of your encouraging comments about my post yesterday with the transition from my old scale to my new scale.
I really do like this scale. Since I've been using it...I've lost 1.2 pounds. I really like that even when I step on it twice in a row...I get the same weight.
I have been staying on my diet perfectly since Wednesday. That means three days of clean, controlled eating. It feels great to be back into the groove again, and back in the driver's seat.
I really feel like my mind has been opened as far as how I view the affect that processed foods and sugar have on my body and destroy my ability to stop eating the crap once I start. Now, when I look at my son eating his graham cracker, and it looks good, I just think to myself of how even a bite will start my cravings.
I mentioned before in my previous post, that I will be investigating ways to incorporate whole foods into my snacks that I would like to eat on the weekend.
Tomorrow I will be attempting to make a new whole foods recipe...an oatmeal waffle. This will be something that I can eat on my current diet, so I am excited to see how it turns out and how it tastes.
I'm still interested in also making an additional whole foods snack that won't send my body into bad cravings for processed foods. My idea is to make a little fruit dish topped with some heavy whipping cream. Heavy whipping cream is actually a "good" fat and something your body needs and can use. And obviously fruit is good for you.
Lately my head has been spinning with different ideas for switching the whole family onto a whole foods diet. I already feed our children oatmeal every morning, and use a whole wheat bread that has no preservatives and additives which gives it a short shelf life. So ,until you are ready to use it, you actually have to freeze it.
But, I would like to begin making meals that do not contain processed white flour and sugar. I would like to grind my own my own wheat and bake my own bread. My mom and dad have an actual grinder that they use to grind their own wheat by hand. I suppose I could use an electric grinder, but a hand grinder seems so much more fun...kind of like my old scale. Ha, Ha, just kidding.
Well, I hope you all have a great weekend!
