I have finally worked out a plan on how to go about my calorie restriction. And it involves healthy, real food. 🙂 However, for the past few weeks, I have been stress eating. That was why last night I really had to sit down and work out my menu for the following months or else my clothes/dress wouldn’t fit me and I wouldn’t have anything pretty to wear on my cousin’s wedding.
The best lunch/dinner I’ve had here so far. With the barbecue parties I’ve been at here, I have learned to appreciate the different salads that go well with sausage (snag) and steak (barbecue). But if I were to do it, if I wouldn’t cook rice, I would just boil or microwave potato and sweet potato and that’s it–substitutes for rice.
I’ve also discovered that canned pineapples and sweet corn are available here. So all is well.
I was about to go walking after work. But it rained hard. This town really needed rain so I should not complain even if I got soaked so I had to change clothes immediately. Anyway, I got inspired watching the Biggest Loser on tv. I’m still continuing on with my calorie restriction and trying to eat healthier. I am just finishing on my last cup of jasmine rice. I bought potato, sweet potato, fruit juices, and bananas. They were the cheaper ones at the grocery.
I also saw the football field in this town and I thought about running. But of course knowing my body, I have to load up on multivitamins and calcium. I’ll give it a few weeks, even if it’s already autumn. I will still go running once I get more confident with my calcium intake. For now, I will stick to walking and who knows, maybe next week I might do tennis. 🙂
This is the place I am staying here. Inside I don’t feel like I am in a rural area. It feels like living in a city. I thank God for this opportunity. This is really a different season in my life. I pray that I will make the best of this season in my life. 🙂
