Summertime and the livin’ is easy

And the living is easy
Fish are jumping…

I left the Alpha Son in the picture so you could get an idea how big these fish were.  Major YUM too.  Alpha Hubby and Alpha Son caught some Alpha Phish a couple of weekends ago.  Yah hoo! 

I realize that it is far easier to eat healthy in the summertime than any other time.  The garden is spitting out fresh tomatoes and squash, and I can get anything else I need at the Farmer’s Market.  It is so easy to grill up some catfish (well, it is easy for Alpha Hubby, ho ho) and cut up some fresh tomatoes – which are so sweet they make you realize why they are a fruit and not a vegetable – and ta-daa!  You have a light dinner, low in calories, high in taste.

I am actually craving fresh veggies and fruit.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good grilled steak, but now I really am craving broccoli instead of smashed potatoes.  Not always, but most of the time.  So I guess there is no excuse now not to eat healthy… if I will just keep away from THESE:

Yes, I began craving Snickerdoodles last week.  But I’ve changed.  I am not the same woman I was a few months ago.  I did not make up the cookies, eat half the raw dough, bake up the rest, hide them and nibble on them until they were all gone.  Nope.  I ate a spoonful of dough, two normal round cookies, and part of a giant one I made when I lost the patience for making them individually.  I put them all in a baggie, froze them and pushed them off on Alpha Son the next day.  I got them out of the house, albeit with tears running down my face.  (OK, not really

And I know they won’t come back for a visit so I am not going to be able to blow my journey into my LBD sky high.  I am so glad I was good and didn’t binge.  Really.

I miss them.

  But I really, really am glad I have change my bad habits into good habits.  And soon I won’t even make the cookies in the first place – at least not until I reach goal weight!

  1. I love it! You’re so strong willed. I had 5 little chips a-hoy yesterday dunked in my coffee at the office. I counted them as a ‘treat’ for being so good the past week.
    My vacation was wonderful but let me tell you, it was hard not to eat all the time. We grilled alot so that helped. You have to choose your battles when it comes to food and Grilled wins everytime!
