I’m merrily getting on with ‘healtheaven’ and making a few changes here and there. The biggest change is that as of this week LOML has completely taken over my diet. He packs me a lunchbox in the morning with breakfast, lunch and snacks and then makes me my dinner in the evening. It’s been fantastic as it completely takes me away from thinking about food at all (as well as completely taking me away from cooking… result!). My only question is: why didn’t we think of this sooner!? Previously I would ‘go on a diet’ and all I would think about was what I could eat, what I couldn’t eat, what was ‘good’, what was ‘bad’. I just bored myself into overeating.
So, this week I’m expecially grateful for my sensible, caring husband and also grateful for…
1. Laughter – in all of it’s forms. Life is too short to take seriously and I try to have a giggle whenever I can. I find myself especially funny.
2. Posts like this one from Keep Cate Busy. I had a bit of an ‘a-ha moment’ (hate that expression, sorry Oprah) reading this. I can’t even say why as I’ve read the same sort of thing many times before, but Cate just seemed to write it in a way that sank in for me this time. So, thank you Cate.
3. My bright orange, yellow and green insulated lunchbox with a lion on the front (!) – It’s actually Cappers pre-school lunchbox, but she’s got a new one for school so there it was, waiting for a new assignment. I just know I’m going to be sick to death of it within weeks, but right now it’s my new best friend.
So, what’s making you smile today? Grab my I’m grateful for… button from my sidebar if you like, add your I’m Grateful For post below and please add a link back to me in your post. Then pop over to visit other bloggers who are spreading a little sunshine. Happy day to you!
