Plan

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.

Walk

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. 🙂
