Wonderful World

Sunday, January 20, 2013

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to stop by and say I am so enjoying our BL Week 6 Challenge where we go around and send sunshine and sparkle to our team, other teams, and to our BL leaders. emoticon

I have already received some visits from team members and it just puts a big old smile on my face. emoticon

There's a baby woodpecker in my pecan tree this morning, just working his little heart out for those bugs.

And the sun is shining after 5 straight days of rain and storms. The ground was so wet you would mire up to your ankles in the yard. emoticon

I'm fixing to go eat me a good healthy salad with shredded cheese and ham, boiled eggs, and ranch dressing. emoticon

My sister who lives an hour away is going to buy the house right next door. We aren't getting any younger and can work together to have pretty yards and a big garden. We love to garden. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it all works out well.
emoticon
Isn't the world a great place?

Many bright, sprarkling, sunshine blessings to us all, emoticon
Linda

tracking Day 8

Friday, January 18, 2013

Hey Everyone,

My writing classes have started back in full force, so I won't blog every day about my lap band hypnosis. I will continue to track on my BL Lovely Lime Exercise thread. It keeps me honest.

If the Team you belong to has not created an Exercise thread, you might ask for one. It is an easy way to keep yourself honest.

The "lap band" is going great. I was able to post a 2 pound loss this week. This is great for me b/c I have no thyroid which means the meds I take act like BRAKES to keep the weight loss from happening. But I know consistency will get the weight off. It worked before and it will work again.

Blessings to us all. emoticon
Linda

    So you had lap band surgery recently? Sorry I don't understand what the 'hypnosis' part is about but if it's working for you I think it's terrific. You're doing a great job Linda!

Linda Tracking Day 6-7

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Hey All,

So, here's how my Lap band hypnosis is going. I have not felt well for two days. Not the flu just listless. I had not slept well for 3 solid nights. All I wanted to do was sleep during the day. emoticon

Okay, I still tracked food, did bed exercises, drank my water - even extra. emoticon

For My BL Lime Team weigh in today I have a 2 lb. loss for the week. That's really good for me. My big thing is keeping the protein grams up. Thanks to the turkey breast I baked, I can slice off some and use it in so many wasy. emoticon

I'm happy. There are still 3 more lap band hypnosis sessions to do. I will try to get one scheduled for today.

Snow and Ice here in N. Alabama. emoticon

Have a great day everyone.

Linda

    Hope u feel better soon.

If you can't sleep at night, NEVER sleep during the day. Stay up. Then at night wear a sleep mask to make the room dark. DON'T get up and turn on the lights, TV or music. Stay in bed even if you are awake all night. As long as you are in the bed, IF you do fall asleep you will be IN THE BED.

(These are things my brother learned from a Sleep physician, when he couldn't sleep from anxiety disorder.)
