I licked a zillion envelopes tonight....are there calories in that?!

Just kidding.  I spend most of my night writing addresses and licking envelopes. gross. I would like to throw up now.

Anyway. Today rocked! I jumped back on the bus and kicked some butt! I currently sit at +0 points...and I'm totally OK with that. 

I started off my morning with 2oz of "Monavie",  If you aren't familiar with this I can tell you a little bit about it. It's a Acai fruit health drink.  MonaVie juice is made up of a mixture of some of the most health beneficial berries, like the Acai fruit, harvested from the four corners of the earth.  All in all, it is just a combination of all the "good stuff" in fruit combined into a juice.  You only take 2oz and have all your vitamins and stuff for the day! I am not promoting this at friend Mary gave me a bottle and I thought I would give it a try.  

Lunch was a yummy turkey sandwich, and apple, yogurt, and string cheese.  It was very satisfying! 

I didn't have time to snack today. When I got home, in between all the envelope licking, I made my FAVORITE dinner...Homemade Fried Rice! 12 points for the WHOLE serving!
Here is the recipe!
Saute onions and green peas in 1 tbsp olive oil
Add 1 cup cooked brown rice with 1/4 cup light soy sauce
Scramble 1 egg and add into rice in the last 2 minutes of cooking
Add some garlic salt...and wa-lah! delish.
-I also add broccoli and carrots sometimes too-

I also want to talk a little bit about commitment.  Why do I sometimes feel SO committed to this weight loss and sometimes I want to just give up.  I think it just scares me.  It scares me to know that I will have to do this the rest of my life.  I know it is not a "diet" for me but a total 100% lifelong journey.  Talk about SCARY! Can I do it? Can I stay committed? Does it get easier?

I sure hope so.  I am learning to LOVE food in a totally different way.  I used to just LOVE to EAT. Anything and everything. Pizza, bread sticks, noodles, butter, pizza, chips, hamburgers, hot dogs, fries...the whole 9! Now, I am loving food because it makes me feel good. All that processed crap did not make me feel good. I LOVE to eat yummy fresh fruit AND I feel great about it after!

A friend reminded me once to stop and think before you make a poor food choice...ask yourself how you will feel 10 minutes AFTER you eat it.  It is so helpful to remember that.  
Have a good night!
