Just an observation:
One of the things I've learned, over these last 43 days, is to truly pay attention to what my body is telling me. I've been eating to plan, with no real deviation off of that this past week, and yet I am noticing today that I am sluggish.
My energy level is not as high today. And, in fact, I feel "puffy" (and no, it isn't THAT). Perhaps, the super-burn of the last 6 weeks is starting to slow, as is expected at some point. I can't quite put my finger on it though. My weigh-in this week was good. I suppose next week's will tell the story, but something has definitely shifted from yesterday to today. I'm going to watch to see if this is a trend, or just a blip for today. Well, maybe it is trying to tell me there is a big weather change coming. There IS a hurricane heading toward the coastline.
Anyway, it is funny, how much more in tune I am with how my body is feeling. I never really paid it much attention before.
I have been doing a lot of reading, and came across a little tidbit about how cinnamon is supposed to have properties that help lower blood sugar. Interesting. I didn't know that. So, I will be sure to add ground cinnamon to my oatmeal tomorrow, just in case it is true! I like cinnamon anyway, so I really don't need much of an excuse. I just never think of it.
I enjoy running across little dietary "tips" like that. If anyone has one to share, be sure to post it in comments!
No real words of wisdom or insights to share today, except to say I had a wake-up reminder today to be much more cautious in choosing my post commentary on other blogs.
I think I upset a once good "blog friend" by complete accident, because something was read into my (apparently) poorly chosen wording.
I keep forgetting, none of us truly know each other. If we did, no one would ever read anything negative into what I say. If I have nothing constructive, helpful or kind to say to someone's blog, I don't comment at all.
And, on the flip side, I need to be more mindful that everyone of us has some sort of insecurity, and it is easy for all of us to read something with that insecurity as a filter.
Anyway, I think I need to shut up for a while. I'll lurk and read the blogs as usual (I love them!!) but I probably won't be posting much this week/end.
It is disheartening to think I hurt someone, whom I admired. If I've offended anyone else, my sincere apologies.
