    About 300 calories over goal. It was emotional. I wanted ice cream because I had a tiring and frustrating day with the kids. Instead of lifting my mood I am disappointed. I am over full now. Tomorrow is a new day.

    Another day of over eating. And a strange fat binge I guess you might call it. Quiche Lorraine at midnight. Then almond flour pancakes. The day included Snickerdoodles. Oh boy. I see it. Sugar. Same patterns. Let a little bit in. ( dark chocolate) and I am throwing things way off.

    I am up with my three year old. We let him sleep too long this afternoon and he is now wired. It's now after 12:30. He's got to be tired soon.

    Tomorrow I am going to have a light eating day and hopefully it will help even out these past couple days. Yikes.

    I did pretty good on eating today!
    I've reached my calorie goals, but I am hungry.

    Exercise: did a 14 min full body workout. I really like the Instant Fitness app. I did the Bulldozer routine.

    Sunshine: we took a spontaneous trip to the river with some family. It was so refreshing.

    Energy: pretty great considering I'm fighting a cold. All three boys have it. Fun.

    Sleep: went to bed late last night, but slept hard.

    Digestion: great! This is so amazing and wonderful. It's been years and years. Wow!!

    So I was reading my devotional ( book with brief daily thoughts, inspiration, scriptures) and something struck my heart.
    ImageUploadedByMarks Daily Apple Forum1369230001.610373.jpg

    "Your mind engages in efforts to take control of a situation, to bring about the result you desire. Your thoughts close in on the problem like ravenous wolves. Determined to make things go your way, you forget that I am in charge of your life.... Stop all your striving...."

    So these last couple days I have felt this way. Reading, reading, reading, trying to figure out how to get these last pounds to go. I have been reminded of some good things like stopping the potato chips and focusing on good food.

    When I stopped to pray and acknowledge the One who put this body together and seek His advice, I sensed in my heart,"nourish your body"

    There are so many approaches that work differently for people.

    There is also a self acceptance that is lacking in me. It's been suggested numerous times that my body may be happy where it is. That may be true. I am feeling good actually. It is the mental part. 1. I am not happy with my body. I wanted the belly fat to go. 2. I fear that by accepting my body and relaxing about things I will just start gaining weight. I put it on so easily and it is so hard to get it to come off.

    nour·ish (nûrsh, nr-)
    tr.v. nour·ished, nour·ish·ing, nour·ish·es
    1. To provide with food or other substances necessary for life and growth; feed.
    2. To foster the development of; promote: "Athens was an imperial city, nourished by the tribute of subjects" (V. Gordon Childe).
    3. To keep alive; maintain: nourish a hope.

    Nourish.... To promote health in my body by feeding it nutrient dense foods. Stop striving.....do not allow fear to drive me. Rest & acceptance. Enjoy the new level of healing my body is experiencing!

    "Nourish your body". That is such a good word, Momto3.

    Well, I ordered the book. Fast Metabolism Diet by Haylie Pomroy. It will be an interesting experiment. On the Look Inside on Amazon it gave the master food lists for the different phases. She was smart to have the phases only last 2-3 days. I will miss my whole eggs 4/7 days of the week though. I'll have a read through then if I do decide to do it, I will start in the beginning of June. heh heh.. it works out that my birthday will be just before the start.
