400 days

Saturday, January 05, 2013

Finally!!

I logged in 400 visits to Curves this morning. I had that scheduled for November, but, . . .

Anyway, I am pleased with that accomplishment.

It seems, however, like I only work, exercise, pay bills, work, exercise, pay bills these days.

I think I will go to an antique store and walk around. A small treat.

Hmmm.

I had better do it now or I will not go out at all! I will see how many steps I can get in while out and about at the antique store.

Free entertainment!

Fireplace ablaze

Friday, January 04, 2013

I am working from home today. I have a permanent custody final hearing next Tuesday, and I need to put together my trial binder. There will be five attorneys, including me, at the trial. I only have one witness other than the defendants. All in all, it is a pretty straightforward case.

However, it pays to be prepared!!

So, in light of that habit, I also planned my meals for next week. Lunch, I mean. Usually it is leftovers. However, some things serve better as leftovers than others. So, I am planning backward from lunch to the prior evening's dinner. Just to change things up a bit.

Oh, and I have the gas fireplace on. It adds a sense of comfort and abundance to my office/family room.

One step at a time!

    Sounds like a great plan.
We had a gas fireplace when I was growing up.

Thirsty Thursday

Thursday, January 03, 2013

I simply could not, even though I was thirsty, drink that first cup of water this morning. I did NOT want that bland taste!!

So, I had my cereal with milk and waited until I got into my car to drive to work before I had my first taste of water this morning. It was good! Of course, that was because it was nearly frozen. I generally pack four water bottles in the car before going to bed at night. I find that is a good practice.

And, since it was 2 degrees here this morning, my water was nice and cold. I think it is silly that water tastes better (to me) when it is cold. But that is the case. So.

Tomorrow morning, I will have my glass of water all ready to go and sitting on my desk, as usual. However, I made a small note for myself. It reads: PUT ICE IN THIS!

I will see if that helps me tomorrow morning!!

One step at a time!

    I know it's so hard to get all the water in.....I personally just don't like having to run to the bathroom all the time. But I drink as the water is so good for hydrating us...we know it. Good for you to make the plan to get yours in.
Have a terrific day.

    Try adding a couple drops of lemon or lime. Another idea is put a slice of cucumber in the water.

Primroses

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I decided to reward myself today for staying within calorie ranges for more than two weeks. I saw some primroses and bought two of them. They are now sitting nicely on my desk at home.

Very pretty plants. One is violet and one is purple. Yes, there is a difference!

Today went well. I got to work and participated in 13 court hearings, signed two motions, and helped an estranged couple to get through one of the hearings without a "scene".

Then, off to the gym, filled up the car with gas, and shopped for protein. That is right! Protein. Very nice stuff. Then, I came home (7:30 pm) and broiled said protein, made a nice salad, and some brown rice.

Yes, a good day!

A good first day

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

The whole family (5 of us) is here today. We watched the Rose Parade, ate a good breakfast: Oatmeal, scrambled eggs, bacon, and cinnamon bread. For lunch, we will have some Mexican food, and we will have bean soup with ham bone for dinner.

My youngest daughter is making some soft pretzels for snacks (I will not have any).

It is nice to be at home with the family today.

Best wishes for a good, happy, and successful 2013!
