Life is kinda like a mountain trail, you can look at it or you can hike it, either way it is up to you to make the choice.

Choosing a route, a routine, an eating program that will support a healthy life, but also an enjoyable one. A life with NO chocolate would not be great..so I will have some. A life without bread..one of my great weaknesses, would not be fun. .. so I will have some!
The bottom line is SOME..not ALL and within reason!

I believe after floating my boat thru several trials and errors in both eating programs and exercise insanities..that moderation is indeed the key. CI/CO...is still the best way to go! Thus said it is up to me to moderate what goes in and what effort goes out!

Success as they say rests in your hands. But you must follow the path to find it. So easy to fail...give up and just say..Thas how it is.

Not This Time..Not Me...This time I believe in ME..

    "Christmas Time is Here"

    Christmas time is here
    Happiness and cheer
    Fun for all that children call
    Their favorite time of the year
    Snowflakes in the air
    Carols everywhere
    Olden times and ancient rhymes
    Of love and dreams to share
    Sleigh bells in the air
    Beauty everywhere
    Yuletide by the fireside
    And joyful memories there
    Christmas time is here
    We'll be drawing near
    Oh, that we could always see
    Such spirit through the year
    Oh, that we could always see
    Such spirit through the year

    Songwriters: Lee Mendelson / Vince Guaraldi

    Thank you for the goodie.A fractured hip won't keep me away,though they did make me slow down on my exercise. I thought my physiotherapist was going to faint when she saw what I could do with a broken hip.

    Its so easy for us to be not so nice to ourselves with negative messages

    Years ago I saw a therapist said to me "would you say that to ---GD name---?". I was HORRIFIED!! NEVER EVER would I EVER even think of calling my precious GD any of the things I was to myself!!

    It stopped me that day. If one gives this serious thought, I hope what happened for me, will them: self love, respect.

    Hope you slept well.

    So you're saying you have more willpower than me huh? Well, all I can say to that is that I believe it! LOL I have not had a lot of willpower while I have been ill. I was so tired of trying to be good and cooking was too much for me. We went back to my husband's way of cooking - frozen meals or fast food joint meals. Then he kept bringing me treats to make me feel better. They did momentarily but then the guilt of eating off plan would hit and it was worse than before. Yet, I was weak the next time he brought something into the house I shouldn't eat. I can't blame him as it is the only way he knows to bring me joy right then and sweets are instant gratification for me. He just wanted me to be happy. Thank goodness his last treat was Cella cherries out of dark chocolate. I don't particularity like dark chocolate so will not devour them rapidly in one sitting. They will last.
