Oh don't mind me

A big thank you to those who left comments in my last entry. I was feeling in a bit of a funk when I wrote it. My weekend was pretty drab and boring and it left too much free time to reflect on what I felt I was lacking. What you did say made me feel better. Just this morning I was listening to a podcast from Ethan Nichtern from The ID Project and the topic? Being A Buddhist of course. He said some things that I was already thinking but it was nice to hear someone else say it and say "It's okay..." I'm gonna keep at it.

Today is also the start of a new way of eating. I recently discovered that 10 pounds just crept up on me and I am not happy about it. Instead of crying and feeling sorry for myself, I need to DO something. Since I'm still waiting to hear back from my CT scan last week, I can't think about too much aerobic exercises but I can control my eating and the choices I make in what I consume. I'm going to try to keep a food journal too(we'll see how long that last). I honestly don't think an actual diet is for me, I just need to lighten up on the portions and maybe tone down on the sweets. I'll still admire a pretty cupcake tho..

You got the right idea with the eating babe and something I try to live by is "keep it simple", during the week anyway. I found using a food journal definitely helped me lose 30kgs. It sounds like you know what you gotta do and how to do it :-)

I keep a food journal on my computer. Since I'm always on here, it makes it easier. I use I like it.

I'm sorry you're feeling out of sorts. I know all about that. with my hormonal ride, every day is a new me. Sometimes I like her, and sometimes I wish she would just go back to bed. :)

CT scan? Are you okay?

Megan, I'm fine for the most part. Last year the doctor discovered that I appear to have a thorasic aortic aneuryism and for the time being, he wants to monitor it.

thanks for the comment on my blog, I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. I have listened to some of Ethan's podcasts as well, I find them very easy to comprehend. I respect the teachings of his teacher, Sakyong Mipham, and I think alot of it rubs off on Ethan. I recently got a pre-release of his book which comes out in September. Haven't cracked it open yet, still reading another right now, but will soon. Again thanks for stopping by.

I hope your health improves!

ps. I'm not big on cupcakes, my weakness is ice cream! ummm ice cream!
