Well the birthday's have now officially passed for this part of the year and I am happy we have them but thankful to see them done because that means no more cake temptations in my house. I was less than perfect with eating yesterday although I did put effort into doing the right thing.
I have always known that after dinner until before bed is a weak time for me and eating. My husband realized this for himself the other day. I was cleaning in the kitchen and he was poking around relentlessly in the kitchen. I asked him what he needed and he said oh nothing. Then he sat in his chair in the living room and seemed to pout. I asked him if he was hungry, or if I didn't give him enough at dinner. He said he wasn't hungry and had eaten enough. Again, he pouted. I asked him what was wrong. He said he realized he was stressed out, watching a moment of t.v. and was having the urge to munch on stuff. I had gotten some kale chips awhile back and got those out for him. He was very happy. I did have to stop him from eating the whole thing! Which he was reluctant to do. But he stopped. He is still working on his ...inhaling food...switch. He is usually done with his whole meal before I take a second bite. I often ask him to eat WITH me. So I am not eating alone all the time with him waiting on me.
I challenged myself to 45 minutes of bike with a bonus of 15 minutes. I have 30 of those minutes done already. I debated to do a total of 90 minutes today but my hip is bothering me. We are supposed to get some bad weather. If I feel up to it I will go beyond my bonus minutes. Other wise I will play it smart and push more tomorrow.
Remember it is April fools day today! My youngest and I are planning a prank on my hubby. Hubby is off call as of 8 a.m. today and very excited about it as it has been a stressful week. A little joke should go over well to help him relax.
I have 18 days until my recheck on my right breast. I have been praying someone tells me what is going on. My brain tells me I will have another recheck after this one. I have been trying to educate myself since no doctors are telling me anything. I have reservations about my GP being involved in this as he doesn't have the same beliefs I do. Wait and see I guess is all I can do. And be more adamant about being told what is going on or even getting the doctors to talk to me. I don't know if that is normal in a case like I have or not. If it is it shouldn't be. That is my opinion anyway.
Positive thoughts! Faith and believing. Lean on those that are there for me, which is through here since I have few people in my life close to me. The men in my life have been great and protective of me.
Starting April right! Proud of myself for that!
