This book writing process is not for the faint of heart, I tell ya! I finally got the manuscript turned in. Now waiting a preliminary approval, and then will start the editing process. THEN it will take 6 weeks for TALKS WITH ANIMALS AND NATURE - BRIDGING THE COMMUNICATION GAP WITH ALL LIFE to be available. Yippy skippy!
Getting to this point has been stressful, a/k/a eating my stress, not doing housework, nose to the grind any available hour.
Coming up for air today I did my dishes (okay most of them are done), did two loads of laundry, and got my taxes filed. Went clothes shopping, and wow, that was not a pretty sight looking back at me in the mirror. Stunned I'd have to say. I really haven't looked at myself other than shoulders up in the bathroom mirror (thankfully that's all you see!), so the belly view was a bit of a reality check. So....got home, grabbed an apple, and off for a two mile walk I went.
At work we have an aerobic mile-a-day challenge, and I'm on the "Wonder Women" team. Its a three month challenge. Kinda nice because so many of us are taking walking breaks at work. My job has been so stressful of late, and add to that publishing a book. I really need to get my mindset back in gear.
Anyhoo, thanks for listening. I haven't been a good Spark Friend of late, I will endeavor to change that. Onward ho.

So I was sick all day yesterday. Watched TV and stayed on the couch and drank buckets of tea and ate 1873 calories...
...and lost 1/2 a pound this morning.
Somehow that doesn't compute. But I'll take it!
Today is working on a writing project, get in my exercise, go to a friend's birthday party this evening. I'll need to eat before I go because they don't eat vegan, and I definitely won't be eating any of the jello cake. Sometimes I'll cheat with cheese, but never jello.
Happy Sunday everybuddy.

Last week I tracked mostly each day, but not enough exercise. The last two days I didn't track at all, and definitely overate a few calories. I'm up a pound this week, deservedly so, but I'm not upset about it. More like "Oh, okay, this isn't getting me where I want. How do I correct that." I definitely feel more balanced mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Went out with friends for happy hour yesterday. I don't drink alcohol but it doesn't stop me from having a good time. The sushi restaurant has a $10 special you get an app, sushi roll, and drink. I had green tea, but after a couple sips I stopped. I've had issues in the past with green tea where I lose all depth of perception, I'll walk into walls, drive over curbs, and feel generally drunk! Its been a long time since I've tried it again, but after a couple sips I felt a little light headed. Someone once told me I must have had an argument with the mountain where it grows in China LOL.
I deeply apologize mountain for any offense, known or unknown. And I promise not to drink your tea any more!
After eating 1300 calories mostly consistently for two weeks, it was interesting to feel myself get full before I cleaned my plate. Made me smile inside knowing I'm changing things for the good, and my body is paying attention and now loves this healthier mindfulness, and is going to give me uncomfortable clues when I'm not.
Through January 17: 12 days of perfect tracking, 5 days not. Two pounds down. Endeavor to persevere.
