So I have been eating perfectly clean and healthy and basically the same exact thing I always do when wanting to shed some cushion pounds. I am extra motivated as I am in the charity fashion show on Friday. I go to try things on today. Here's the crazy.....I was excited yesterday when the scale told me I was 108...that's 2 under my 110 goal. Today for some reason after a perfect eating day yesterday I am at 109.5 so a gain of 1.5. That is why my friends, we can't count on that scale to tell us the truth. Yep, that puppy lies sometimes. That is why we can't let it be the judge of our day and how it goes. It is only allowed to remind me of my mission and nothing more. Just gives me more determination to eat right again today. Perhaps it's the stress of all the festivals down here(no having been eating anything or drinking) with the late night and very early crack of dawn cohetes(fireworks). The last ones go off around midnight and then the first ones wake you around 5:30. And we are not talking little bangs, but because our casa is up on the mountain with the village below the bang is right outside our terrace. And let me tell you that they set them off for a long time and many at one time. You wake up thinking you are in a war. Just cracks me up. I don't get that the Mexicans don't understand the need to sleep. It's for sure there is no 8 hours of peace and quiet between set offs of these things. Oh well, it is a tradition for them and I am sure it's important to them....but it seems like a waist of money for the church to spend on them and not the poor. Yep, a tad of sore grapes here. Oh well, at least after I go get my fittings for the fashion show I can nap. Such is retired life in Mexico.
Cheers everyone. Make it a great day.
