i am sitting here tracking and listening to the local high school football bowl game.
my team is winning at the moment, did you ever notice how biased the announcers sound? it is almost as if they are disappointed that the team is winning and they just cannot understand why the other team is losing.
ticks me off, i am happy at the moment my team is ahead by 18 in the 4th quarter.
i miss football season, when my son played, i worked the boosters, i was the treasurer and i worked the concessions and fund raisers.
it kept me busy during this time of year, and we had a tradition....every friday night... after the game, on the way home, we would stop off at the grocery and pick up cans of chicken noodle soup, as it was usually chilly at night, and come home and eat soup....and watch the highlights on the news.
i miss those days.
i have gone over my calories today, i dont know, im not obsessing over it, but disappointed, dont know why i did it.....i just felt like eating.
i hope everyone has a good weekend and GO WATCH SOME FOOTBALL....

Normally, I post in the evenings, I add up all the stuff I experienced thru the day and write it down...
But today, I am here first thing.
A big day ahead....I have physical therapy in an hour and then I am going to see an old friend, and then go to Walmart, the happy happy place.
I plan on stocking my fridge with some lean cuisines, I read Woman's World mag yesterday, and there is this diet plan in this weeks issue....like in every issue right? But this one seems very easy to follow.
And I am going to give it a try for the next 2 weeks.
The scale is still stuck, but, at least its stuck on a low number, I am not getting back on until next Tuesday....this is a vow I made for myself and I am gonna stick it out.
So, will blog more later about how this day went and how the plan is going and if I break over and get on that stupid scale....
Everyone have a nice day and be strong...

So, here I am, at just after 7pm, and the day is winding down. I have had an ok day so far. Nothing spectacular happened, but, nothing bad either.
I have so far today stayed within my calorie range and I even had a little left over for later.
I plan to do some weight lifting and might even get on the exercise bike later.
But, here comes the doom....evening, no matter how busy I make it, no matter what chores I accomplish or workouts I get in.
Books I read, or phone calls, internet fun I have....I cannot seem to make it from dinner time to bed time, without going overboard.
I have a nice snack...tonight is going to be jello sugar free chocolate pudding and milk. I have enough calories saved for that.
I just hope I can stick to that plan, and not allow myself, or whatever fairy dust enters my brain, to go crazy and do the unthinkable, and eat something fattening and calorie ridden.
I just want for once, to make it thru an evening and a night, without going to bed guilty. Without beating myself up for that handful of m and m's like i had last night. But most importantly, not having the candy in the first place.

today i went for physical therapy, they put me on the treadmill, at 1.3, not fast and only for 8 minutes, but it was good.
i need to get back to walking every day and this is my beginning, anew, since my knee surgery in july, i havent walked for fitness. and i cannot wait, im thinking if tomorrow is as nice a day as today has been, i will go to the track.
maybe 10 minutes....but its a start....
today has been such a good day, a tony's top 10 i would say, gotta be from this area to get that reference, a local meterologist.
it was not over upper 70's and just right, no sun beaming down and no rain.
i sure hope thursday is as nice, i have pt again and then a couple of errands to run and a meeting at 12.....
no a/c in my car and it sure would be nice not to be dripping with sweat and praying for relief the entire time.
i have stayed somewhere within my calorie range today, i probably did go over some, and i tried to count each calorie....
i am planning to have a slice of angel food cake and some peaches later as a snack...
but, i have tried really hard.
i know i was such a nasty nelly, bad attitude last week.
but i sure hope it was just hormones and that i am past that negativity.
i got on the scale this morning and it was good....
not a big loss, but im back down to the lowest number i was a few weeks ago and it is good to be there.
now, i am taking advice from so many and staying off the scale until this day next week, and i sure hope to be down a few more lbs, 3 at least.
but not going to ruin this day with speculation.

well, so far, today has been an ok day....i stayed within my calorie range, and enjoyed a nice lunch and snack....
but, doom, doom, doom, the day aint over yet....
this time of day is when i begin my fall, i have a good supper, and oh man, i even enjoyed some nice apricot preserves, (i need to look for a recipe for that).........
but, will i be able to maintain thru the evening?
i am sure going to try.
right now, at this moment, sitting here, blogging, i have had a good day.
