Wow, I just counted up my time in the boot and this is day 31. I knew it was a lot, but I didn’t think it was a whole month of days. In the big ol’ scheme of my 55+ years, a month is just a drop in the bucket, but it is enough to start a habit. And in the spirit of Three on Thursday, here are three things I’ve said Yes! to in this past month-of-days that I hope to continue:
Cottage Cheese. for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Pre-boot, this was a “sometimes” thing for me. I’ve always loved it – with fruit or vegetables or doctored up with herbs and spices as a dip. Now, it’s a daily thing, often eaten all by itself (with a spoon directly from the container – not a thing I need to continue). It’s high in calcium and protein and low in fat … now I’ll be buying the big container weekly!
Making Do. I can’t run to the store for any little thing. and while Marc is willing … we’ve resisted. It feels good to make do. We’re shopping less. and making smarter choices about what we buy/prepare. It also means we’re eating a lot more leftovers, but I’m ok with that, too.
Dresses, mascara and lipgloss. Pre-boot, days I didn’t have to “see” anyone I might hang out in my workout clothes until bedtime. Now, I shower and dress every morning … most often in dresses which are easy to get on (and off) and always with mascara and lipgloss. It’s a tiny effort, but so worth it because it makes me feel better about myself. (and as I type this I’m sure there are a ton of reasons why I shouldn’t care … but I do. and I’m ok with that, too!)
Head on over to Carole’s to see what other Threes the crew is sharing this week!
