Smoothie Challenge Revisited

After careful consideration, and some deeper self examination I have to share with you that I will not be eliminating whole foods from my diet.

I know better then to go to extremes with my eating but it still happens. At least it is usually momentary and I recognize it...like I did after posting yesterday. I need to have balance in this area of my life, it is coming...slow but sure!

It is so easy for me to indulge in a piece of sweet whatever and then be overwhelmed with those feelings of failure which then leads to a full blown binge by eating a truck load of useless calories.

Or going to the exact opposite extreme of fasting from all food to lose weight.
I have used fasting in the past and even calling it a spiritual fast to lose weight....and it is something I struggle with almost daily, when I have had a bad eating day even now!
I have finally admitted it. What a relief!

My plan to get back on track and break these nasty cravings......
I am going to still enjoy a BIG green smoothie each morning for breakfast, eat unlimited amounts of fruit and vegetables throughout the day.
Lunch will be an Ezekiel English Muffin with natural peanut butter.
Supper will be a normal size serving of whatever I am making for the family and a large salad.
If I am having a lazy day and the children are having something like nuggets & fries or frozen pizza then I will resort to a homemade Whole Wheat Pita Vegetable Pizza for my supper.

That is my plan and I will stick with it!

Sorry if I have sounded wishy, washy the last two posts....
just trying to get my feet rooted again!

Onto other news, I have been getting up with my husband early in the morning (5:40am) and after he leaves for work (6:30am) I have about 45 - 60 minutes before any of the children begin to wake up.
I have been taking that time for devotions and a quiet coffee followed by checking in on the computer; blogs, Facebook, emails and other such things. Today after he left I thought, "Why not do the 30 Day Shred while the children are sleeping?"...I had no good reason to not so I popped in the dvd and got in my workout clothes at 6:45am and met with Jillian for a kick butt session.
Man, did it ever feel good to have that accomplished this morning!!!
