#R2BC is not here again this week, it is continuing its little holiday around the mummy blogsphere (you know what thinking about it? We have never yet had a daddy blogger join in with us, does that mean they are more miserable?) and is at How to Laugh in the Face of It All this week. So head over there and show Kate some love. Thanks so much to Clare for hosting last week, you did a fab job!
Well if you read my recent post or have seen me tweeting the last few days you will know I am on a diet and yes this is a big reason to be cheerful. I know most would dispute this but for me to have the motivation and willpower to be dieting and handing my control over to God is a fabulous thing. I have been using Slimfast shakes for 2 meals a day, having healthy snacks and a healthy dinner. I am keeping carbs to a minimum but not cutting them out completely.
|One of my strange but healthy (& tasty) dinners - Quorn chilli with cabbage, peas, Cauli, green beans and rice!|
The first couple of days I have had a terrible withdrawal headaches from sugar and chocolate but again I have to be thankful for this reminder and I have to remember it and not have to go through it again in the future. I am such a forgetful bird!
At the moment I have a real belief that I can do this and I will be successful, I think that my Thinking Slimmer slimpods have had a positive influence on this mindset. I thank the Lord for this change of mindset and that is where I will leave Reasons to be Cheerful for this week. No need to dilute my joy with extra reasons!
So now you have read my reason, leave me some comment love, write your post and link up at Kates and I'll promise to come and visit you! Have a good week. Mich x
