Day 55 Packing

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Calories 1494
Exercise 120+

I worked hard today helping my daughter with her packing. The movers are coming early tomorrow, and you truly don't know how much you have till you have to move it. It felt so good to get home and take a shower. It's way past my bedtime; I'll sleep as late as I can tomorrow.

Praying friends, please pray for my daughter who moves to Washington state this week and needs a job--and for her mama who's going to miss her very much.

    Ah sweetie-that's tough. My daughter lives in Seattle now--a long way from Florida. Always hard to see her leave.

    I so understand. All 3 of my girls are at least a day's drive if not more away from me.

Day 44 till Day 54 Happy Valentine's Day to all my friends

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Day 44 and checking out till Day 54, if I figured it right. Day 54 will begin the Winter 5% Challenge, and I am a emoticon this time. How appropriate! Here's to success to everyone doing the Winter Challenge, whatever team you're on.

Food today - great. No time to eat, and when I did, I wanted good stuff.
Exercise - active day, making deliveries and lugging boxes around.

Off to Eastern Point Retreat house; can't wait to get there to enjoy the beauty and the silence.

And...
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY
BLESSED ASH WEDNESDAY
BLESSED LENT
to those who keep the above.

Days 42 & 43 Every other day on a roll!

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Day 42 good exercise, bad food

Day 43 not much exercise, great on food. Avoided breakroom goodies altogether.

I may be checking out for a bit. Tomorrow will be very full at work and at home, getting ready to be away for my retreat. So far, my flight is still a go. It will be easy to eat well with good choices in the dining room, and I will be doing plenty of walking.

For some beautiful pictures, google Eastern Point Retreat. I was there when what looks like steam is rising off the ocean. It was 4 below, and the water was warmer than the air. I swear one of the indoor pics is the back of my head, me sitting in a chair at the end of the retreat wing, right outside the door of where I was when I was there last.

    Excellent that you stayed away from breakroom goodies! Have a healthy "break" -- I've been so busy at work lately that I haven't been very active, and I miss the group -- so don't forget to come back!

Days 40 & 41 This has been a good day!

Sunday, February 10, 2013

Sat 2/9 Day 40. SO tired. Took a 2 hr nap and didn't get nearly as much done as I needed to.

Sun 2/10 Day 41. Wonderful what extra rest does for you. I'm glad I chose to sleep yesterday. I'll be in better shape Monday morning for having gotten caught up some. I'm working my way down the To Do list before I leave on Thursday for my 8 day retreat.

Good choices today - only coffee and fat-free cream after Meeting (Quaker), and tasty healthy fare with guests for lunch. They thoroughly enjoyed my veggie-filled pea soup. Made Weight Watchers Pumpkin Spice Cake for dessert. It was still warm when we ate it.

Funny moment this morning, thanks to our two younger cats: Mickey chased Grayce into a paper grocery bag, favorite cat hideout. That's funny enough, but it got lots better when Mickey sat on the open end of the bag, trapping Grayce inside and jumping on her. She is so rowdy and pesters the other two so often that it's really funny to watch her get a come- uppance.

God Bless,
Angelia
