Here I am again and when I arrive … Sometimes I FREEZE in my momentum.
AND when THAT happens, forget everything because discouragement sets in and I have to make appointments with myself to set myself straight! HaHa!
Yep … these are just a FEW of the delicious foods I ate this weekend at the annual Greek Festival. Every Greek Orthodox Church has a festival once a year, and ours rates amongst the top of the best or so I think! I always try to enjoy the foods I don’t cook often and have fun fooling myself into believing I am eating my YiaYia’s cooking. I’ve been doing these festivals since I was a very young girl growing up in Chicago and always told my friends that the calories don’t count if you are a Xeni. Me, however … I won’t get on the scale for a few days at best!
The festival closed at 3:00 and I did not bring food home with me. I actually felt hunger pangs around 6:00 … oh no … what am I going to do!?!?! And then I started craving my VI Protein Crunch Cereal of all things. So … I put together a nice bowl mixed with banana and chocolate coconut granola and voila … ahhhh … taste buds satisfied once again!
So until next year … STEEN IYIA MAS and OPA!
Ugh! Thought I was on track correctly about my workout plan but NOPE. I was feeling so good out on the track Tuesday morning at 6:45 that I just didn’t care about the “gee is that a pain I feel in my knee and is it spreading to my thigh” thought that went through my mind. The cool morning air was invigorating and LOOK at ME kinda running! Ugh! I just kept going … Big mistake! So my fitness goal of running a mile by December 31st … Well … I’ve still got time and gee … Maybe I need a pair of fresh shoes! Oh wait … I have 2 pair in the closet. Double UGH!
I’m thrilled with my progress because more than one doctor has told me it’s SOOOO hard to beat being over-weight when I have that D2 thing going on. I know it’s true because I have tried so many times to lose to no avail. This time though … And I’m feeling YOUNG again!
You can do it too …
