On Facebook today Sparkpeople posted this question of the day-
"You're about to be trapped on a desert island, and you get to take three things with you. One has to be food-related, one has to be fitness-related, and one has to be happiness-related. What three things would you choose?"
After thinking for a few minutes, I posted this response-
"Guns & ammo for my protein (freggies are gathered); my family to play together and my Bible because Jesus is the source of my joy."
So what about you? How would you answer the QOTD?

Went much better today than yesterday when I was STARVING when I went to bed. Today I feel great, though I was actually over on fiber. Weird!
Today was crazy as I worked out, then went to work, then took dh to the surgeon to have the sutures removed. His arm was still too swollen to have the full cast put on, so that will be done on the 20th. To those who asked, he had a bone graft, fusion, plate & screws and a carpal Tunnel release of his dominant hand.
Carpal Tunnel site-
I need to get to bed early ,tonight because I only had 5 hours sleep last night, so this will be short. Sleep well, Sparkfriends and I will talk more tomorrow.

I am up 5# from my lowest weight. Mind you, I am still in maintenance range, but seriously. FIVE POUNDS? How? I have spent the day re-evaluating. Obviously, I have gotten sloppy.
Am I staying in calorie range? Well, I thought I was, but perhaps I am letting a bite here and a bite there get the better of me. I found a delicious new 'coffee' for my Keurig. I am on my 3rd one of the day.
Crap! Just looked up the nutrition label. 60 calories per cup. There is 180 less calories in FOOD that I get today. I won't be buying this anymore. It is good, but not THAT good! From now on I go back to my regular flavored coffee rather than the K-cups which are laden with sugar and milk.
I am sure there are other things that I have been less than diligent about.
Like the brownie that I forgot to enter yesterday. Maybe I am underestimating some of my grab and go snacks? Like the cereal bars that Molly made? I counted them as Rice crispy bars, but maybe they had more calories than a rice crispy treat??
How about exercise? Well, with Rich's recent surgery, exercise was also curtailed. I am back to work and back on track with that now, so it will resolve itself.
1- Drop the calorie count down by a couple hundred per day until under 155# again (I am at 158# today).
2- Measure and track as soon as it hits my lips or before
3- Maintain the exercise program.
The fact is, maintenance does not mean that everything stays the same. It is a constant dynamic state and, like any goal, needs to be revisited. I did mine today! When did you last do yours??

I was excited! Rich was going to the men's breakfast at church, so Molly and I went to the Y to work out. I wasn't even on the treadmill for half an hour before he called to be picked up. He was nauseated and weak. Sigh.....
When we got home, I cleaned out every drawer in the bedroom, getting rid of clothes that no longer fit or that I don't wear. 2 more garbage bags going to Salvation Army on Monday!
Rich asked his daughter, Angie, to come sit with him Monday through Wednesday next week, which means I can go to the Y in the mornings and go to work so I can get my "me" time in.
I need to get back to my routine again. I *hate* when I can't work out! If only the intent counted.....
