Good Week!

Thursday, January 18, 2007

This has been a really good week for me! DH has gone west to visit family, and it's given me a chance to regroup (and have control of the remote!!!).

Today I had lunch with Debbie at Applebys, and I had the chicken, apple, walnut salad--the half portion. It was very good, and I didn't touch the grilled white bread they sent with it--didn't even want to...

I've been to Curves twice this week, so far; and if I go tomorrow, which I plan to do, I'll be back on track. I haven't been 3x a week since before Christmas; and I know that's telling on my weight loss, because I'm barely losing 1 lb a week, but I've been faithful on my eating plan.

I continue to love the You on a Diet. I learn more and more about it every day and introduce more of the foods into my eating plan.

  


Staying on Track

Thursday, January 11, 2007

Wow, I can't believe that I've managed to stay on track for nearly two weeks! That's not to say I haven't eaten anything that wasn't appropriate, but when I've gone outside my plan, I did it knowingly...lunch at P F Chang on Tuesday, but I didn't gorge myself. And the scale isn't showing any damage.

I've still got to get more exercise in my regime. I'm doing Curves 3x a week, but I know I need to be doing more. I looked for pedometers at Wal Mart this week, but ours didn't have the one that I want. I know I shouldn't be waiting to get a pedometer to get down to business--doesn't sound like I'm procrastinating does it...LOL

  


Trouble Goal

Sunday, January 07, 2007

Only one of many is the 8 glasses of water! I'm going to make a very, very serious effort to accomplish this over the coming week. It's just so easy NOT to do...because I don't CRAVE water! I'm going to try to think of a reward, for myself, if I can do this for a whole week...

  


What Day Is This???

Wednesday, January 03, 2007

The holidays have messed me up big time...I don't even know what day it is!

I do know that I've gotten back into my eating/exercise routine; and it feels so good. It seems, though, each time I just get settled in, something comes along, in my life, to throw a monkey wrench into everything. I know, though, that this is part of the learning experience too. I have to learn to not let everything go to pieces whenever there's a bump in the road. The more it happens, and the more successful I am at recovering, the easier it gets each time.

Praise Be To God.

  


Where Did Christmas Go???...

Wednesday, December 27, 2006

...that's what my 2-year-old grandson said to his mother when he came downstairs, the day after Christmas and realized the tree was empty of gifts!

Well, Christmas, the celebrated holiday, is gone for another year; but as Scrooge said (to paraphrase), "we need to keep Christmas in our hearts all year long." For my family, it was magnificent. We all enjoyed one anothers' company and shared meals and great times together. What a blessing...

Now to get back to business--this year I was able to wear a pair of black jeans two sizes smaller than what I was wearing last year; so onward and upward...I'm going to try the You diet and get back to going to Curves 3x a week. I've been lax, off and on, since Thanksgiving; but I'm not discouraged and believe I can get serious again.
