Double WooHoo!!!

Friday, November 30, 2012

Hello Friends!

I hope all is well in your world! We're in the thick of the holidays, by golly... & I hope you're all hanging in there! Cause I know the stress can take its toll! Been there, done that! I'm feeling the pressure, just a bit, because my young granddaughter called last evening & wanted to know if grandma "decorates" for Christmas & if Santa will be able to "find her" in Florida!

Oh oh! emoticon

I hadn't planned on decorating or even putting up a tree! And I wasn't even planning a traditional dinner...& just thought we'd all go to the beach on Christmas! I guess I wasn't thinking, huh! So, now I'm under the gun & will decorate & get a tree....& hang stockings & plan a traditional menu for Christmas! Yikes! Lots to do now! And, I haven't even begun to shop! So, game on, I say!

Okay, deep breath! (sighing)

All in all folks, this week was a BIG success! I'm down 2.2 lbs for a total of 28.4! WooHoo! And on the week of Thanksgiving! Double Woohoo!!! And not only did I have one Thanksgiving dinner, but two! Uh huh! Long story...I celebrated Thanksgiving dinner over a friend's on Thanksgiving & I made my Thanksgiving dinner for hubby & I on Friday! That was double the pleasure, double the fun! And double all the turkey fixins!!!

Um, no double desserts though! emoticon

All I can say about this week was that I tracked all days except Thanksgiving. I ate well but was mindful of what I put in my mouth. Every time I wanted to eat something, I thought long & hard about if I felt the food was worthy of the calories I would consume...& I tried a little of everything. I even had wine! And I ate lots of veggies!

And I exercised everyday, even did spin class on Thanksgiving! emoticon

All in all, it was a very good week! Today, I've got a mammogram scheduled in the morning, so I'll do a long walk after I get back! Our weather's been beautiful here in SW Florida! And I'm, ever so grateful!

Have a wonderful week, everyone! And don't forget to take time for you...& breath!!! You are loved!!!

    Yikes! Surprise! Get those decorations going! It's the kids who make us do it. My "kid" is 27 and she still makes me do it. But you know what? It always happens. Christmas comes and Christmas goes and all is well. Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    Great loss for Thanksging. A great example that one day does not have to ruin the whole week. My only Christmas decoration is a ceramic tree. Some days I want more but don't want to take it down Christmas Day as we leave for AZ on the 26th and don't want to return to Christmas decorations in the spring. I Knute your GD will not be disappointed. Just don't work too hard!

emoticon on the great loss, especially during Thanksgiving! It just goes to show that if we really use all the resources handed to us, we can eat, enjoy, and still lose weight! It's about control, not just portion control, but control. You are a great example of this. Thanks for being such an inspiration!

Good luck with the Christmas stuff grandma!! The beach emoticon silly you!

    Very good, my friend! You did so well.

As for decorating, I wasn't going to, either, but now I think perhaps I should, even though it will be just DH and me....

    Congrats Rose on being down 2.2 lbs. So very proud of you. I had 3 Thanksgiving meals and chose mostly veggies as my meal. I didn't lose any, but didn't gain any either. My exercise is slow coming back.. Been in pain w/knees (d/t lack of consistent exercise) and still the stomach issues they can't figure out. They are leaning more on it being scar tissue causing the pain under the ribs yet b/c they can't find anything else to blame it on.. lol.. Go figure.

Have a great week and good luck on that mammogram. emoticon emoticon Donna
