What a nice weekend I had at home with the family. It was so nice to be able to see them and spend time with the folks. I got there on Friday and my mom had made my favorite dish! It’s somewhat of a Pakistani pizza with spicy beef tucked into a naan and rolled out flat. It’s delicious and it takes my mom a long time to make so I know she really wanted to make it a special night. Saturday I slept in and then went out with my mom and sister for a fun day of shopping. We ended up going to the Mall of America and though I didn’t find anything for myself I bought some nice things for my mom and little broth
er Robby. We had another delicious dinner on Saturday night and then I started to feel sad because I knew I had to leave the next morning. Sunday I woke up bright and early and headed back to the Cedar Valley. I like to come home early on Sunday’s so I get some time to relax before the long week starts again. My mom of course sent me back with a ton of delicious Pakistani food but I can’t eat any because my healthy eating initiative started today so into the freezer it went!
For my first day of healthy eating I must say I am quite proud of myself. I had 10 almonds today and a delicious cup of fat free yogurt to start my day. I also replaced three cups of my usual coffee with water and I plan to make that a habit that I can stick with. I also made a delicious low fat vegetable soup with lima beans, carrots, peas and green beans that I had for lunch. I am so committed to this plan! The only damper in it was that I forgot my tennis shoes at work and couldn’t go running today. That’s okay because Eileen and I climbed the steps in the back of the KWWL building for some exercise today and thought it wasn’t as much as I would have liked, it was a good start for Day one!
