Power Thought of the day

I am safe; it's only change
I cross all bridges with joy and ease. The "old" unfolds into wonderful new experiances. My life gets better all the time.

Love this one:-)

I have worked hard over the past few days to really pay attention to what I have been eating and more importantly how much of it I am eating. I have noticed it's getting easier to eat smaller portions. I have dropped one pound...it's not much, but it's better than gaining a pound:-)
This week, while I will continue to work on my portion control, I am going to work on reincorporating my workouts. I NEED to workout at least 3 times a week. I am going to hit a yoga class this evening to start out the week! I am also making SURE I drink at 64oz of water every day!
My nutrition class is helping me fully understand what my body needs, what what eating well does for the body. It's amazing how much you can hurt or help yourself depending on what you eat:-)

This week it's all about exercise and eating HEALTHY!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WILL see the benefits if I can just stick to it!

Pallet Design...from Pinterest

First let me start off by saying I am highly addicted to Pinterest. There are so many ideas....I want to try them all! But...I can't. This is one that was really easy and I thought it would look great in my living room. Joel brought the pallet home from work....the stain I got at a garage sale for $1.00. Score! That's all it took!!!

Clean off the pallet really well...stain it or paint it whatever color you like. Take a few slats out and hang it up! Tadaaa!

Pasta, bread, CARBS!!!! I love them all...and I like to eat them until I am so full I am about to burst! Gosh, now wonder I have put on 30 pounds...geez:-)
I am going to make a few changes to my diet this week...which will allow me to eat carbs (because I would DIE without them) but change the times that I eat them...so I have more time to burn them off before supper!

1. NO pasta/bread/potatoes/rice...etc... after lunch time. If I want to have a big ole serving of pasta...I will do it for lunch!!!!

This will not be easy for me....but I am going to give it a try and see how it goes:-)
Wish me luck!
