Are you kidding me!
The really good thing about running (walking actually) for public office is getting out into all the neighborhoods and talking with the voters. I have been doing a lot of walking. As some of you know I live in Kyle, Texas. And I decided to run for City Council...an at-large seat. That is right, the whole city of Kyle. So that is a lot of walking.
Eating Right? That is another story. Sometimes I have gone all day and realize that I haven't eaten...Not good! Then I want to grab the first thing that I can find. I haven't had a cheese burger in almost 6 months. And yet at 3:00 pm one afternoon I pulled into Whataburger and that was that.
Coffee and peanut butter. If I had to list everything I have eaten in the last two months the list would be topped by coffee and peanut butter. Oh, and honey. If it is too late to eat but I need something...spoon full of peanut butter and honey knocks the edge off. At least it is reduced fat peanut butter. Boy do I miss My Fit Foods!
And if you noticed that Starbucks' stock has gone up recently....that is because I am getting the fat free latte with the turkey egg white breakfast sandwich for breakfast most mornings.
So all you ATX people keep up the good work. I know you are re-grouping and holding it together. There will be times when everything doesn't seem to go according to plan. But I feel like I have learned enough to improvise and to know that I don't want to give up on living healthier. So I just try every day to make the best choices I can when I can.
If you don't count cheeseburgers!
