Life: The Changes in Day Two

  Moving right along with day two of my Life Style Change.  I found myself with a slight headache this evening.  I'm sure it isn't a rise in my blood pressure.  Know how you can feel that pounding in your head when your blood pressure is up, I wasn't feeling that. 

How sweet is this picture?  Love the effect of the taxi in the back ground and the man on the street corner looking at the ladies.

Maybe a lack of sugar. 

Could it be Sugar withdrawals; is there such a thing?

  Any who... Today started off like any other.  Worried about sticking to my plan.  What lunch and dinner would bring.  Help to plan the meal early.  I have breakfast, lunch and dinner already planned for Friday. 

  To think, I never use to know what I would want from day to day.  Now I find myself planning meals ahead. 

  Who would have thunk? Right??  For those who know me personally, this is a very BIG deal.  I never plan meals.  Fly by the seat of your pants; way better.

My friend called this picture 'Blessings over Freedom Tower'.  Rings true, doesn't it?

  So today, I needed plenty of 'looking at cool New York pictures'.  Good thing I can count on my twitter pals to help me out.  Are you on twitter?  I have seen so many tweets about the freeze warnings for the New York area, and others.  It is going to get down to below 32 Friday night into Saturday morning; in New York that is.

  Florida get into the 60 for only a few minutes; than it is back up to the high 80's.  Just my Fall and Winter luck.

  Moving right into my next thought.   Again today I stuck to my food plan, to the tea.  Despite the nagging inner urge to savor a fun size candy bar or two.  Three.  Four.  So here is what I cooked up for today's Diabetic Meal....

1 cup of milk {for my coffee throughout the day}
1/2 cup of Oatmeal
1/2 Banana

Iceberg Lettuce {thank goodness it is a free food}
1 1/4 cup Strawberries
6 ounce Yogurt
1/4 Granola
1/2 cup rinsed canned green beans
2 Tbsp Lite Kens honey mustard salad dressing

4 ounces Tilapia
1/2 cup cooked and chopped sweet Potatoes
1 slice of 100% Whole Wheat Grain bread
1 Tsp Olive Oil
1/2 cup cooked Zucchini
1/2 cup cooked Eggplant
1 Tsp Butter

Check out this 360 degree view of Yankee Stadium.  Pretty snappy, don't you think? Yeah, me too.

  I sure did enjoy breakfast and lunch, dinner however is another story.  I am not a fish eater, unless it is tuna fish in the can.  The kind in water.  Albacore.  Than there is the zucchini, sheesh that was bad.  The eggplant wasn't to hot either; in taste that is.  We grilled the fish and the nonstarchy veggies together.  The Sweet Potatoes were the best by far; also cooked on the grill.

  The problem?  The plan calls for FISH 2 - 3 times a week.  Okay so, I'll try another kind of fish.  Once the bag of fish I already have is finished.  The nonstarchy veggies however, are going to be a problem.  I have never been a carrot, cucumber, broccoli type of gal; so imagine my panic when I seen where I have to add them to my meals.  Oh my word!

  I ate every drop.  Not because I liked it; rather because my health depends on it.  I mean, eat or starve.  Right?  Not me!!  So before I close.  I wish you a wonderful Thursday night, or Friday morning if you are reading this Friday, and leave you with one last New York photo. 

FALL in love with the Streets of New York
