The Laid Back Approach

191.5 this morning. I guess I'm still maintaining....... meh. I had a good day yesterday. I'm going to shoot for 2 today.

The DH is making me a little crazier than normal this week. Perhaps I'm just overly sensitive with my teen gone. I'll try a little harder; breathe a little deeper.

I need to take a class. I want to be busy, but in a good way. I'm thinking gentle yoga. I don't want it to be hard. I want to ease into wanting more - not dreading what's next or watching the clock.

I've switched up my shopping - going every day - making sure there's fruit and veggies; making sure to buy only what we need for dinner, and breakfast and lunch the next day. This way we're only eating what we want; there's no rotting food in the crisper. Let's see if it has an affect on my weight. I'm trying not to obsess, just going through the motions of what has once worked.

Time will tell.

When I was on Mat Leave and then again when I was unemployed for four months, I went to the grocery store every day as well. One, it got me out of the house as I tend to be introverted and withdraw a lot (!) but I did notice how much less I spent over all and how much less waste there was.

Now I buy fruits/veg/eggs from a local farmer's market near my office 3x a week and get meat from a local farm twice a year (and freeze it) and only buy milk/dairy and other groceries every two weeks or so.

It's also so much less stressful than dealing with a grocery store after a long day at work or a crazy Saturday!
