May Day Challenge, Day 1, afternoon

posted in Uncategorized |

Updated to add: I got the blog fixed. My husband can do that HTML stuff and figured out it was because I had centered the May Day Challenge button. So he uncentered it and voila! It was fixed. Isn’t he the best? 

I realise that I’m micro-writing here, but on the first day of a big life change like this, small is good. Oh, and I have no idea what’s happened to my blog. It all started when I inserted the May Day button. Everything’s gone all wonky. Will have to wait until my husband gets home to fix it. He’s smart like that.

Anyway, it’s now 3:54 pm and all I’ve eaten since lunch is a carrot (while I was chopping carrots for dinner) and some big glasses of water. I was waiting for the kids to wake up and have afternoon tea with them but they’re still sleeping (aren’t they angels?) and now it’s close enough to dinner (we eat just after 5 pm) that I’ll wait. And I must start my own challenge, which will be called “How to write a post without excessive parentheses”.

So, how do I feel? Besides hungry? I feel thinner. I realise that feeling hungry isn’t the goal, but feeling hungry makes me realise how many times I’ve eaten when I’ve NOT been hungry. I’ve eaten just for the sake of eating. And that’s why I’m fat. Now, I want to eat because I’m hungry. And it’s okay if I have a bit of chocolate cake. It’s all in moderation. Chocolate cake is part of life but it doesn’t have to become my life. Oooh, that’s deep.

And now the real challenge begins: the over timer just went off and two loaves of Zucchini Bread are coming out. One is going with my husband tomorrow to the men’s Bible study at church. The other will be sliced and frozen for snacks for my kids and hubby’s lunches. At least if it’s frozen it’s not in plain sight. I’ll have to stick the carrot very far into my mouth while I’m slicing so as not to tempt myself.

    You go, girl. I love fruit, as well as carrots.
    I’m always surprised when I automatically choose cake
    over fruit, when truth be told, I probably like
    fruit even better than cake.

    Cookies are another story entirely.

    Keep up the good work. I love your humor.
