Today be like your coffee - strong!
Tomorrow is World Vegetarian day and eating healthy is of course part of the self-care routine so I thought you could either do meat free Monday today or plan to have Veggie Tuesday, all those lovely veggies will do you the world of good and if you're a WW member, they've sent out an email full of recipes for you to try. Actually on having a google it turns out it's also International Veggie week, so you can do it any day this week. Maybe you'll try going vegetarian for the week and see how you like it (I'm not doing that, I've done the vegan thing, I like my food too much these days) If you can't manage an entire meat-free day, just include more of them. I can't today because I've got a beef stew ready for eating, I cooked it yesterday and it looks to die for.
I've just found this recipe on WW US Facebook page, these would taste good I reckon, plus they're Zero Smart Points!
They do sound good don't they, but back to me, I need to share that I've actually finished the weekend on track, I even have a few weeklies left over - that hasn't happened in a very, very long time! I enjoyed a lovely roast pork dinner yesterday, went a little crazy with the gravy but I left some on the plate because I knew it was too much and I'm trying really hard to be aware of portions and my appetite. I've experience a rubbly tummy a few times through the fact it's got empty, it's good to remind myself I won't die or starve to death if I eat less food, that I will survive without 3 big meals a day.
I've really enjoyed thinking about my self care this month, it won't end just because the month's ending, I just won't be blogging about it every day, so I hope you'll also continue to think about your own self care needs. I'm thinking #OptimumOctober or maybe #OptimisticOctober, any suggestions?
Today though, I can enjoy spending Monday with Mom because tomorrow is also International Day of Older Persons 2019 but I'll be at work most of tomorrow, to be honest every day is Older persons day in my house but it's good to be reminded of how important they are and how blessed we are to have them in our world. In America today is National Love People Day 2019, so today let's be loving people to every one we come in contact with, be especially nice to that person you struggle to like, make the effort. Let's make today Make Nice Monday!
I'll leave you with that thought, I'm going to hope that Alfie doesn't pay me as much attention as he did yesterday, he would not let me get on with my crochet, he was climbing all over me, as if he'd never met me before, still not quite sure what was going on with him, but he's slept on the landing all night, he's still there, nothing wrong with his appetite, let's just say he enjoyed his pork dinner!
Here's to Make Nice Monday or Mwah Monday ;)
Love me x
