well cookie night is tonight. i have cookies made--will be careful and low ball my calories so i can participate tonight. not a lot of sleep last night--rob is so stressed out over the past election--we stayed up for a long time talking about it. i think we finally drifted off at 2 and at 4 when shambles had to go outside, he was sound asleep. rob is a brooder and worrier--as a software engineer his mind is conditioned to construct worst case scenarios and then design systems proactively to avoid them. he is VERY good at his job. but it is a part of his personality that makes it hard on him when he is confronted with unknowns and deep changes. but this morning he said he had worked through a lot while he was sleeping and made some decisions while he was exercising and showering this morning.
i am a hands on person. if i am worried about something i put my hands on it and start right away trying to fix it--this is not necessarily a better way of going about things--its impulsive nature often forces me to back up and start over. normally between the two of us we hit a happy medium--he thinks things through to exhaustion, but i step in with ants in my pants and keep us from complete paralysis. it will happen with this too.
have a lovely day, everyone!

    I'm still learning to be as prepared as I can reasonably be, and not worry about things that are beyond my control, yet at the same time,, recognize those things that I CAN have some influence over, and work on those things. It is much like a duck swimming on a pond. Calm and serene on the surface while underwater paddling like crazy.
    But then, such is life!

    That is crazy awesome about your friend and that trailor!! That's like a "Woody" trailer from the '40's!! And she gets to play in it?? Awwww....I really want one!! LOL

    I have the worry problem too!! I always see worst case scenario, The car weaves just a tad? No problem I immediately see it hitting car in front, or driving off the ridge. It drives hubz crazy lol We live waaaay out in the country, he grew up here and while on country cruises, if he goes a tad over the line, I am immediately like the cops are gonna pull you over, what cop? nobody is around for miles, oh you know the one waiting in the bushes just to pull YOU over :P

    my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years
    old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off. took 16 months.

    i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x. took 7 months.

    use a salad plate as a dinner plate

    use fruit for your sweet tooth cravings, an apple works great. helps with the chewing sensation.

    fill your salad plate with half vegetables.

    we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal

    No cookie night here, thank God, because I'd probably go crazy! It sounds as if you have a good plan in place so you can take part in it! Have a great day!!
