Get Off Your Broom Update
*Sorry to post this so late. I started writing it days ago, but haven’t had time to finish it. Sick kids, Thanksgiving cleanup, life – those are my excuses.
I did pretty well with sticking to my menu last week. Thanksgiving… not so well. I did finally feel well enough to go for a run on Saturday with a pup named Tramp from the animal shelter. He is my favorite running buddy, so far. I hope he finds a good family, but if he is still there when we get our own house *crossed fingers*, I would love to adopt him.
On to the challenge stuff.
I weighed myself 3 times today and came up with different numbers each time: 164, 167, & 170. I don’t think I have gained ALL of my weight back, and I don’t think I lost any with all the Turkey Day stuff I ingested, so I am just going to go with 167, which is the same as last week. Stupid scale. I was going to do the rest of my measurements, but I will have to do that next weekend.
On the challenge from last week:
I did pretty good with eating healthily and eating food that is healthily prepared. In fact, I will be posting the 2 vegetarian recipes I tried last week sometime soon. The chickpea soup was incredible. I need to retry the cauliflower recipe. I flubbed it up pretty good. It still tasted fine, but I think it would have been extraordinary if I hadn’t used frozen cauliflower.
Week 8 Challenge
This week we are supposed to come up with a Witchy Diet plan.
Hmm. I think that as a Pagan, a diet plan should be full of healthy meal and snack choices. It would not contain any easy fixes. I believe Pagans should pay attention to what goes into their bodies, so trying to ingest as few chemicals and over-processed foods as possible. Exercise is also a must.
As a Pagan, I believe that I can feel attuned to the Earth and Universe in simple, everyday tasks. Making a meal and going for a walk, for example. I am enjoying the Earth’s bounty and taking in the Earth all around me. I also feel great when I have accomplished cooking a good meal or going for a run.
