...I've been at maintenance!! I'm continuing my positive mindset and also putting one foot in front of the other with my walking!! I just got back....5:45PM from a walk around my neighborhood admiring the Christmas lights! Did I really want to get out there in the wind and 45 degree temps that felt closer to 35? Not really, but I put it in my mind....this is what I am going to do!! Sometimes you just have to talk yourself in to DOING IT!!
I was out part of the day with my Red Hat friends at Panera for coffee only....for me. Some gals were eating the lovely egg sandwiches and yummy looking muffins, but I made it a point to have my steel cut oatmeal with a few dried cherries thrown in and cinnamon on top....before I went to Panera!! YUM!!! I then came home and baked a healthier version of Christmas bars substituting the 2 eggs for 4 egg whites and using reduced fat margarine, and they are fabulous, but I keep them out in the garage where it gives me time to really think if I want one....or not!!!
There are only 16 days left in 2011!! I hope you are seeing your weight at a decrease....and if you're not....set some logical and realistic goals for 2012....and VISUALIZE that new you!! That is what really helped a lot for me when I set out on my journey to get rid of some pounds.....and butta (butter). I like to use butta cuz one pound gone is equal to 4 sticks of butta, and that's a lot!!!
God's blessings to all and Merry Christmas 10 days early!!!
