Intense Week

Saturday, December 16, 2006

As I prepared to make this entry, I received a phone call saying that the daughter of a friend of ours just committed suicide. The young woman was preparing to graduate from college; she was an extremely talented musician. Her family had traveled to the school, for her graduation, and when she didn't show up for a family get together, they searched and found her--their only daughter, dead by her own hand.

Life is so puzzling, even for those of us who are Christians. This week we were mightily blessed by the birth of a precious little granddaughter; and our joy is unbounded. Meanwhile, here is an equally committed Christian family whose pain is unbounded...

It makes me feel ashamed that "losing weight" is such an important part of my life. I may need to approach this from a new direction and try to move it from such an important place in my life.


It's Monday So It Must Be Blog Day!

Monday, December 04, 2006

Well, last week was really busy; but what else is new for any of us at this time of year!!! I stayed on course, for the most part, most of the week; managed to get to Curves 3x which is one committment I have been able to keep without fail.

Lots going on this week--dr appointment today; had bloodwork drawn, so I'm anxious to see how the cholesterol is; tomorrow going up to SC and Friday dinner out with friends.

Still don't have the Christmas tree up. I guess we'll try to do that this coming weekend.

I've been reading the You Diet book, and it is very, very interesting contrary to my first opinion. In January, I think I may try to incorporate some of it into my eating and exercise plan.


Great Weekend in Florida!

Tuesday, November 28, 2006

Had Thanksgiving at our daughter's house in SC and then drove down to Florida to visit family and friends. I managed to get in two trips to Curves last week but had hoped to do three. Of course, I ate more than I should have; but I'm not discouraged. I can get back in step and, hopefully, lose a few more pounds before Christmas. We've got several more holiday occasions, but I'll try to plan ahead.


So So Week

Wednesday, November 22, 2006

After going down to Atlanta on Sunday and "partying" with my cousins, I've had a little trouble getting back on track. Then, of course, there's Thanksgiving staring me in the face and the trip to Florida. I did go to Curves Monday & Tuesday, and I've got a Travel Pass, so I'm really going to try to go, at least once, while we're away from home. This is going to be a difficult test.


Great Weekend on the Polar Express!

Tuesday, November 14, 2006

What a blessing! The beautiful trip to the NC mountains, the B & B stay and the train trip--also the wonderful Italian dinner at Pasquelinos! I "planned" my splurges, the breakfast (Belgian waffles) and the dinner out (chicken breast with blue cheese sauce) then came home and got right back on track! I even had a couple of glasses of wine with the chicken. It is so much easier to just plan ahead then to throw yourself into a situation without any plan for control. Thank you Lord for the gift of your Holy Spirit.
