PONDERINGS

Saturday, November 28, 2009

HERE I SIT WONDERING IF I WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE A LOSS THIS WEEK. WHAT STARTED OUT WONDERFUL HAS VEERED INTO WORRY STATE. THE HOLIDAY CAME WITH NOT MUCH ADO, I ATE, I MOVED ON. THEN COMES THE DAY AFTER. WITH LEFTOVER PIE, WHICH I ASKED MY DAUGHTER TO CARRY HOME AND SHE DIDN'T, AND THEN DRESSING, GRAVY. I COULD GO ON BUT YOU GET MY DRIFT. WORK ISN'T ANY HELP EITHER, DONUTS, PIZZA. WHAT IS THE DEVIL TRYING TO DO TO ME? WELL HE WON THAT ROUND. I ATE THE DONUT, ONE, I ATE THE SLICE OF PIZZA, ONE. BUT I WANT TO GET MYSELF ON TRACK AGAIN. THIS IS HARDER THAN I THOUGHT. I DO FINE, I FALL DOWN, I PICK MYSELF UP, I MOVE ON. IT IS THE SAME OLE SAME OLE ALL THE TIME. SO I HAVE DECIDED TO LET THIS MOMENT PASS. I WILL MOVE ON. THIS IS A NEW DAY WITH NEW POSSIBILITIES.

I WILL PUT THE PIE IN THE FREEZER. THEY THAT WANT IT WILL HAVE TO NUKE IT. I WILL PUT THE DRESSING AND GRAVY IN SMALL CONTAINERS AND DO THE SAME. I CAN WIN THIS BATTLE. THE WAR IS IN PROGRESS AND I HAVE TO HAVE ALL MY WITS ABOUT ME TO SUCCEED. SO TILL NEXT TIME. I WILL GET THERE FROM HERE. IT MAY TAKE A BIT LONGER THEN I HAD FIRST THOUGHT..........BUT THAT IS LIFE. DEVIL STEP BACK, JESUS IS LEADING MY WAY.....

    It is hard. Leftovers just staring at you. You can do it. Put them out of your line of sight and everytime you feel like you are going to get some, drink a big glass of water. It helps.

    I had pie too! And, yes, you are correct, one day will not un-do all the hard work! BUT, one day can lead to another, and yet to another, etc.....So.......NO MORE PIE! LOL! Have a great Holiday Season!

Thanksgiving eve:

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

I'm off to a wonderful start for tomorrow. I have gotten most of the baking finished and I found time to take the dogs for a walk and get on the nordic trak after. This is going to be a wonderful day, I won't have it any other way.

I want to wish all a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING, this in case i'm too tied up and than tired to get on this thing.

So till we meet again, keep on sparking, it is what is going to get us to the finish line.

here i am week two of my back to basics. so far so good. i'm getting in my cardio with the help of my stationary bike and the nordic trak this last couple of weeks. it has been chilly here in the mornings and with the rain it is so much easier to just do indoor workouts. that is not to say i'm shirking my cardio by any means. i think i work harder on those two contraptions then with my feet.

food is on target. i do ww and so far i have weighed and measured my way to a 1.8 lb loss last week and i feel confident i can do at least one pound this week.

i want to wish all a very happy thanksgiving if i fail to get back here till then. with all that i have to do it will be tough to blog regurally. i did get my corn bread cooked last night for the dressing (southern thing). tonight i will get my eggs done for the deviled eggs. then the rest is done that morning. go much to do for a short enjoyment meal though. but so worth the effort to have so many around us at one time.

i'm already pulling recipes (low cal, fat, and sugar) for my christmas dinner and to give away. i will get a jump on that soon. so till next time. god bless and good luck to all. we can hold strong at the big dinner. michelle.
