How many 'Day 1's" until I get it right? It seems like I just have "Day 1's" in this weight loss program of mine ... I'm stuck in the "Groundhog Day" movie!! I know this should make me discouraged, but I'm not... because I still keep trying and perseverance will prevail! Even in the movie Bill Murray finally got it right. I know I can too.
Heading into day two of my Carb Cycling program with Jorge Cruise's "Happy Hormones Slim Belly" program. Just two days of tight carb restrictions then I can relax a little.

Well, no matter how much I wanted to deny that my body was this far gone, a picture never lies. No oneÖ I mean NO ONE has taken my picture in the last 8 years!! My mindís eye sees something so different than reality. I see myself the way I was most all my lifeÖ thin!! Iíve been on a long trip up ďDe NileĒ.
Since my hormones went wacky and my thyroid was removed, Iíve jumped from a size 6/8 to a size 16/18, it seems like over night but reality it crept up on me slowly over the last 12-14 years. The doctors would tell me it was all hormones and to live with it, yet no one had an answer to give me except to eat fewer calories and to exercise more. The problem with that solution was; the fewer calories I ate the less energy I had, my metabolism dipped and the energy I needed to exercise was zapped, plus aging wasn't helping me either! I had to face it... my time was running out to make this work! I needed to find something that WOULD work for me!
When I was younger and having my children I was able to loose my baby weight without even trying. The older I became it hasn't been so easy. After reading Jorge Cruise's Plan on Carb Cycling I saw some similarities in the way I used to eat compared to how Iíve been eating, so I think his plan will be easier to stick with and put me back on track to what my body needs and to kick my sugar addiction!.

For weeks, maybe even months, I would say, ďIím going to get my flu shot this weekend!Ē Ö Oops!! Too late!! I got the flu!! Bummer!! It was a bad one!!
DH came home from a funeral and he must have picked it up while there, because 2 days later he was sick! Then I got sick! Then the grand kids got sick! And on and on it spread throughout our little family like wildfire!
I spent 5 days in bed. None of us ever remembered being this sick with all this coughing! It was all I could do to walk to and from the bathroom back to the bed! Needless to say my workouts took a hit, not to mention my lack of energy or enthusiasm for Sparking!
Well, that was 2 weeks ago. Life is finally backed to normal around here and the planets are in alignment once again! Yeah!!
Monday I went to see my doctor to have my weight checked and get back on my diet plan with himÖ while I was there I got the flu shot, too, just to cover all my bases with the other strains of flu that are lurking around!!
Finally I'm feeling better and Iíve been looking forward to my walks again with Buddy Ö but, now itís raining!! There always seems to be something trying to derail my efforts to that healthier me, but there is always tomorrow.

This morning was hectic!
I was busily fixing breakfast and then getting myself ready to get out of the house and have some "ME" time with my hairdresser and my pedicurist. Then there is a bit of shopping at Costco afterwards. It makes for a very long day, but so worth it!
As I was getting ready I could see those little brown eyes glaring at me from a distance as Buddy laid inconspicuously in the hallway so I would have to step over him to get out of the house!! I glanced his way and said, "Don't worry Buddy... I'll be back early enough to take you for our walk! I promise!"
Scurrying out of the house with a quick kiss good bye to DH and a hug around Buddy's sweet neck, I headed off for my day. It was beautiful today. It would have been a great day for a long walk, but not possible.
I got my day finished and hurried home in the midst of evening traffic. By the time I got all the groceries unpacked from the car (with DH help) it was getting dark. There Buddy was with those piercing brown eyes reminding me of my promise. I said to DH, "I promised Buddy a walk tonight. Do I still have time?" He said, "Go! This will wait!" He was right.
I put on my pedometer, and discovering that the battery died, and then grabbed the leash and a flashlight. Buddy was waiting at the door without an invitation. Another example of his mind reading abilities!!
We headed down the steps and up to the top of the driveway. I had to take shorter route down the street to the end of the culdesac and back since night's blackness was falling fast.
It was a short adventure but nevertheless it felt so great getting it done! As I was approaching the driveway on our return I thought about DH saying that if I did this short walk just 10 times week I would get 5 miles in!! So far this week I'm at 3 miles just with this short little walk!
What do you know? Amazing!! Baby Steps!
