I have been MIA from the online family of SP but have been diligent regarding food tracking and have been able to stay on track. Exercise, well, I'm doing a lot of stuff, but not too much "formal" exercise. Golf, walking, gardening, weeding etc. I feel the need to get back in a routine with some strength training and biking, just for the routine of it....but have been doing fairly well.
No weight gain, a little weight loss.
Work and family and friends have been very demanding lately, and the future doesn't look too much calmer.
So, I love you all, and am here in spirit and calorie tracking and water ;-)
Even if I'm not here in cyber space often enough.

Just came in from 3 plus hours in my yard. My front yard is weed free and has a flower bed 3' X 6' bigger than yesterday. Digging out grass is very hard work...but I will never have enough flower beds. I also planted some more periennials and herbs. I am officially sunburned and a little stiff and sore, but it feels good!
I may be singing a different tune tomorrow
Now off to grill teriyaki pork and pineapple shish kebabs; asparagus and mushroom salad. I love spring and fresh veggies; can't wait for summer and farmer's market!

So, yesterday was a long day, at the end of a long week. But as I was running errands on my lunch I had an epiphany. I was rushing and happened by one of my favorite sushi restaurants, I started to drive by and get fast food then I stopped, why would I do that, why would I pass up something I LOVE and that is lean and healthy for something that I don't really like that would allow me to only eat a very small portion of unhealthy food.
I DIDN'T want to eat alone! I eat alone when I travel all the time, so I had to really analyze why I wouldn't want to do it at home? Couldn't come up with a good explanation, so I forced myself to go in and had a wonderful lunch. Next time I will remember to bring a book though ;-)
then later, still running, trying to get to my son's golf match, then get home and change and meet my girlfriends out...starving...I discovered that Burgerville (only in the Nw) has a turkey burger, which if you take off the mayo is a great alternative to tiny little boring horrible small hamburger's ;-)
So, off to play golf today, work in the yard tomorrow and look forward to many a bbq, grilling is a great way to cook lean meats ;-))

So today I spun the wheel and for the third day in a row I got TWENTY, yes 20 points!
Which is an omen, since today I really got back in the swing, I did 90 minutes of cardio and did ab work and it felt great. Made my breakfast and lunch for tomorrow! Cut up fruit and veggies for later! I feel very motivated again after week basically off. I did keep in the calorie range and drank my water every day but didn't really truly exercise. I did some cardio, but definitely slacked on eating the "right" things (keeping in calories but eating wrong doesn't really, really count) But overall it was an off week.
So in other words I'm Baaack! and glad to be!
I would have been back anyway, but the "gift" of the extra points made me think about karma and fate!
