Reset & Press On

Sunday, December 23, 2012

I reset my program yesterday, started Beachbody along with exercising with Leslie Sansone. Today I rejoined SparkCoach. Did you know they have a program that doesn't start at Day One? It motivates and challenges.

My fridge is stocked with fresh fruits and vegs. The pantry is stocked with whole grains and other great things.

I still haven't got to sit down with hubby for a menu plan, but that is going to happen one way or the other today.

Determinated to lose the other half of the weight I set out to lose.

Another skunk

Saturday, December 08, 2012

About 10 days ago my border collie encountered a skunk. Tonight she did it again. Hubby has been held over in Salt Lake City. Lucky him getting a break. For me it takes away any desire to eat. Take heed, diet industry. The answer is right under our noses.

If you go to google and type in Skunk Antidote you will find something that
will work... it uses three ingredients..3% hydrogen peroxide baking soda
and dish soap Dawn is suggested you will have to check the amounts on-line..... judging by the comments it seems to work. Good Luck.

    Oh my gosh. I had almost forgotten how our dogs used to love to harass skunks and get sprayed often when we lived out in the woods in Tennessee. Yuck, it's really bad. Hope it goes away soon, but I can understand the dieting benefits of it!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh no! Once you smell a skunk you never forget it and always know immediately what it is. Sorry your dog had to be a dummy and try it again. Twice was twice too many!Good luck with the cleaning process.

6 more pounds to end of year goal!

Friday, November 30, 2012

It's not the healthiest way to lose weight. Being sick, that is. It is encouraging, though because too many times I've gained weight on meds.

I'm doing better. The foot isn't too swelled anymore so in a day or so I should be able to walk and dance. I miss my exercise!

It's been proposed...

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

...that Halloween be postponed til November 6th. Trick or treat? I heard it on the news.

Seriously, it bothers me that folks are off-kilter right after daylight savings begins. Especially that first Monday. Wonder if that effects how votes go.

On a personal note, I was at the doc's yesterday. Weight jumped down 3 lbs since the weekend. Likely cause of the gain was probably sodium. I have to keep monitoring everything - what goes in & out and when; tracking sodium and some other nutrients. Thanks for all your support during that scare. Oh yeah, I have a mild diuretic to take as well.

    Good to hear that you doing better. Salt always does me in scales.
So I watch it carefully.
Well Trick/treat 7 day after the real day: that is rich but better late than never. I wonder if people will not have eaten most of the candy? emoticon

    they just want to control everything.
I take Lasix everyday because of fluid retention. If I forget there's about 3 lbs more to my weight each day I forget.
Sodium is also hard on the heart. That was the one thing they stressed to my brother was watch sodium after he had his quadruple bypass three years ago. So he watches sodium on labels like a hawk - seriously he compares the meats in the meat dept because of the sodium content. Read the labels on everything.
