Well, my daughter got wind of her birthday party, which is okay, because she's out of her funk and looking forward to it. It's coming up next Sunday, and plans are going well. I'm glad that I decided to have it, and thanks for all of your encouragement. I'll let you know how it goes!

So today was going to be my "Get Her Done/Housework-Cardio" Day". I washed and conditioned my hair and put it up under a heating cap, with a clay masque on my face. I put a load of clothes in the washer AND the dryer, put my cell phone on the charger, a chicken in the oven to bake, sprayed my tub and face bowl with scrubbing bubbles, ran up and down the stairs to the tune of "Happy" with my water bottle clipped to my side, watched a Spark People video as I vacuumed! Boy, did I feel productive!
So what was that blob on my stove? It was my food scale. () God forbid, I should eat 7 ounces instead of 6! What I forgot was, it was plastic and the heat vent from the back of the oven melted it! I haven't even had that scale a month! But at least I got a lot done! LOL!

I WAS looking forward to going to the doctor today, because I know that I have been eating well, exercising, and drinking lots of water. After she looked at my chart, she said that I needed to move more and drink water! Are you kidding me? I politely told her that I was walking or cycling 60 minutes every day and drinking 80 ounces of water! Well, she was upset that my blood pressure was so high! "What is it?" I asked. By the look on her face, I thought it was astronomical! "140 over 95" she said. "But the good news, is, you've lost 9 pounds since you were last here!" Well, hooray for something! I'm happy with myself, and I'm going to keep on working on my health and fitness. My next visit is in 4 weeks and my weight AND my numbers will be down even more, thank you very much! Doctors do try to bring you down, don't they?

My daughter will be turning 40 soon. All year long she has been looking forward to having a big celebration, which my family usually does for what we call milestone birthdays She is a loving and giving person and has lots of friends, who have been looking forward to celebrating with her. Over the past couple of weeks, she has been very depressed about work-related troubles, unexpected household expenses, and pressure in her post graduate program. She has not even mentioned her birthday. Her father, sister, and I were beginning to make plans and get all excited.
Of course, before we went too far into planning, I called her husband and asked him what his plans were, and how we could help. I was so shocked as he sadly told me that she didn't want anything at all, just for them to go to dinner by themselves! He was at a loss because a couple of years ago, she gave him a fabulous forthieth birthday party, and everyone had a great time. He had wanted to celebrate with all of us, but decided to just give in to her. I reluctantly said okay and hung up.
Normally, that would be the end of it for me, because I pride myself on not being a "Buttinski". I felt so bad that I couldn't let it go. A few minutes later, I called my son-in-law back, and basically told him to take her to dinner early, and bring her over to us. I told him, not to worry, he didn't need to do anything or know any details, I would take full responsibility if she objected. For as long as she had been looking forward to this, I don't think she will. Well, I'm sticking my neck out here!

Yesterday, I started over with the Induction Phase. Today when I weighed I lost 1 pound! It may not seem like much, but I had been stuck at this weight for the longest. I should have stayed on Induction longer but I thought 2 weeks was enough and decided to cruise into Phase Two. Well, obviously, my body wasn't quite ready for phase two. Also, as soon as I went back into Induction, the "Induction flu" came in the form of a headache. that lets me know that I have more toxins and burnt fat cells to eliminate. I ended up taking a Tylenol and drinking more water, and the headache went away. So I've decided to stay in Induction a little longer, until I'm sure that phase two is effective for me.
