Thinking Back to the First Days on SP....

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

I was writing a response to how to "endure" on the first few months of SP and I was writing how DIFFICULT it was for me to stay in the calorie range so I didn't focus on it,just other stuff like MAKING SURE I got my exercise in ,eating right {most of the time!} ,and trying to focus on getting the nutrients my body needs! It looks like all those new practices have become habits----here's a breakdown of what I got @ the grocery store today---
-bread
-milk-
-lowfat choc silk soy milk
-TRU-MOO for our young son
-berries-Strawberries,blackberries,blueb
erries,raspberries
-bananas
--cottage cheese
-whale crackers
-and a little of the sweet =by the lb. -yogurt pretzels,choc.pretzels and a muffin for him & I!
It may not sound all that interesting but it IS SURPRISING to me{though it SHOULDN"T be!] I HAVE CHANGED MY LIFESTYLE & EATING HABITS! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

It worked!~~Turning the clocks ahead by ONE DAY!

Sunday, March 13, 2011

I thought I would try something to help us not miss church due to Daylight Savings Time this year {"Springing forward" not "Falling back"}. Since we didn't have any commtiments or appointments on Saturday ,I changed all the clocks one HOUR ahead that day. It actually got us to bed earlier ,too! Anyway, today being Sunday, the clocks are changed [another thing I don't have to do!] and we 're in time for church! emoticon emoticon emoticonNote: I posted this as a Secret of Success yesterday!

    We turned ours ahead about 7 p.m. and then put the kids to bed at their usual time so they would be tired enough to sleep easily tonight. It worked! The hubby and I went to bed according to the new time though. Good plan!

    I love the quizzes now that I can get points for them! Before, i just couldn't justify taking the time for them because they didn't earn any points! Yay! emoticon
