For your responses to my previous post. I appreciate your kindness and caring words so much and am taking them to heart. *hugs*
Well, all said and done, it wasn't too bad a day, food wise. I came in juuuust under the 1500 calorie mark. Squeaked in in my target range. So I can call it a good day. We did go to Willow Lake and walk. I wasn't into it. But I did it. I just set my own pokey pace and sulked all the way out and back. It was good to get out there, I burned off a little of my funk and a few calories, too.
When we got home, I fired up my grill nice and high and let it burn off the grody on the grids while I jumped in the shower. After I was dressed, I brushed down my grids and tossed a couple of pieces of chicken on the grill and then sliced up a summer squash and a zucchini. I was planing to steam them but I decided to grill them, instead. Since I had sliced them fairly thick, I threaded them on skewers, salt and peppered them lightly, sprayed both sides with a little Pam and tossed them on the grill with my chicken. I let them get nice and done and let them get lots of good, grilled colour. When they were done, I slid them off the skewers and onto my plate and sprayed them with a little ICBINBS.
Oh. My . Gosh!
The zucchini was really good. The summer squash was just heavenly. Grilling it makes it richer and sweet and it is truly, truly splendidly delicious. If you have never tried grilling zukes and summer squash, please do try it. You might really love it. :D
Oh, and Drazil, I accept your challenge. I am going to try harder not to use harsh and mean self talk, call myself mean things and believe the worst of myself. It isn't going to be easy and it will take time. I have to overcome a lifetime of conditioning. A true, deep seated belief that I am ugly, stupid, weird, not good enough, unworthy and useless. I think that a very small part of me doesn't believe these things. Maybe it can grow? :D
Okay, I think I have been riding the Waaahmbulance long enough. Time to jump off and get over myself. lol
I am going to do my weights, tomorrow. And I may just try for a little extra distance, too. We'll see how the old hips are feeling. If they are a go, then so am I. I'll keep you posted.
