No Cookouts For Me

Sunday, May 27, 2012

Living year-round in a city with eternal sunshine, cookouts are the norm whenever the spirit moves me. But being pretty burned out (pun intended) on them, I decided that I'll do this holiday weekend w/o the grill. I know, almost unheard of! Kinda tired of the barbecue thing. The upside is that no temptations will I face! (smiling)

Wishing all a wonderful day.

    We have a fairly simple menu on tap for tomorrow . . . if it's nice, we'll grill, but if it rains - possible - we can still cook it inside.

Whatever floats your boat!

    Enjoy! Is it wonderful to have a change of pace.
I'm looking forward to the fresh garden salads grilled veggies and portabella burger.

    Jeff Novick's Burgers and Fries DVD has some great seasoned bean burger recipes and roasted fries that are completely guilt-free and tasty, too!

    I'm the opposite. We haven't had BBQ for so long, I'd like to have my steak BBQd tonight or tomorrow night.

    I'm with you on this. I've opted for a quiet craft filled 3 day weekend with healthy salads, smoothies and a new receipe from spark for Strawberry muffins. Church this AM but other than that its me and my Cricut cutter!

Back to Acupuncture

Saturday, May 26, 2012

I've found a great place with an expert who charges very reasonably. Have some issues that I'm sure acupuncture will help. It has in the past. Will be going this morning.

Wishing all a fun holiday weekend.

May Goal & Looking into June

Friday, May 25, 2012

I really didn't set a firm goal in May. I'd had a vague one about eating less cheese, and I accomplished that. And I continued my previous months' goals of no sugar, no caffeine and no night eating. Overall, I allowed myself to be goal-free in May. However, June will be a different story. I want to focus like a laser beam and get these last 11 lbs off my bones.

As I've said numerous times in my blogs, this is the first period of time in my life I've been overweight and I intend to make it the last. I could write a book on how differently people treated me as a thin vs. overweight lady. It's amazing to even see the difference in the smiles I now get since these recent 10 lbs have come off. All because of weight. It certainly wasn't because I was smiling less as I do that no matter what the scale says.

Wishing all a happy day.

p.s. Come to think of it, one unplanned goal (is there such a thing?) was throwing away the coffeemaker and remaining coffee. I didn't think it would be such a big deal, but it was. As long as it was on the shelf, it was my mental safety net. Strange.

    As someone who had yo-yo'd around her entire adult life, I can tell you there's a HUGE difference in how people treat you . . . even complete strangers!

BYE BYE TO ANOTHER 2 LBS!!!

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

All my hard work is starting to pay off. Bright and early this morning on my weigh-in day, I got on the scale with no expectations only to look down and see that 2 more lbs have left town. YIPPEEEEEEE! HOORAY HOORAY! Am I excited? You bet! I've got 11 more to go until goal. And then I'll see if I want to go down further or stay at my body's most comfortable weight. I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

Wishing all a happy day.

    That is so awesome to hear about the weight coming off after being on the "forever plateau" as you describe it. All those changes you have been working on this year are really paying off.

A MILESTONE FOR ME

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

I have to admit that I've been pondering this decision for weeks, unable to mentally let go of this security blanket of sorts. Although it's been over three months of no caffeine, I still held onto the old coffeemaker and remaining coffee on the shelf. Well, today I got rid of them both. Yikes, that was a big mental step.

(I am soooo tempted to retrieve them out of the trash.)

Sometimes that can be such a weight lifted off us - letting go of something that was holding us down in thought.
