I just got home from my daughter's house. LIttle Ava is a sweetheart and her big brother seems to be doing fairly well. I really loved being part of a family life. Breakfast in the morning, all the hubbub with the dogs and cats (even if they could be annoying), all the activity.
Now i have to take my tree down, be all alone in my big house.

Am still at my daughter's house, eating very well, won't worry about tracking, and just enjoy myself. Holding an infant is a total, total joy. Especially when that infant is part of you.
Baby is a little girl, now I have a grandson and a granddaughter, but only they are allowed to call me "grandma"
I do not want my friends calling me that!!!!

My daughter gave birth yesterday!!!
She emailed me in the morning that she thought contractions starting. I drove over around 7:30 am, morning traffic not too bad, I was nervous driving on the freeway, she's about an hour away from me. She left five pages of instructions on how to care for her two year old.
At any rate, she had the baby at 1pm. Her comment, "that was so easy, I didn't even miss a meal!!!" She had lunch after the baby was born, and then when I visited at 6pm she was eating dinner, as happy as a clam.
Her husband stayed overnight in the hospital with her, but really it was not necessary.
It is really a big deal when your child has a child!!!

An odd psychological event? Yesterday, when I really had given up, for some reason, I ate within my calorie range and didn't even know it.
What does that mean? You shouldn't try too hard. Prepare, prepare, prepare and then let go.
I think I have read something about this phenomenon. The guy who invented the sewing machine. He worked and worked and worked at trying to find a solution, and then one night he had a dream about warriors with spears that had a hole at the top, and realized the secret was a needle with a hole at the top to catch the thread underneath. (probably have the story incorrect, but you get the idea) When he let go, the solution came to him.

Not in mood to blog, but I read where Jack London was so disciplined he wrote 1000 words every day whether he wanted to or not.
Was thinking of quitting Spark, because I am just plain fed up. My weight has not changed in two years, so why am I kidding myself? That is how I feel: I feel like I am lying to myself about actually wanting to lose weight.
On the other hand, I actually like doing this blog every day; I like measuring my foods (cannot believe that has happened, but it has); I like walking; I almost like doing strength exercises with Coach Nicole. She is so sweet, so clear, so cute. I paid for some different exercise videos, and I do not care for the speech pattern of the gals doing them. Interesting how we can take to a like or dislike of a person we don't even know!!!
