What's on your mind?

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Well, this has been on my mind for some time now. So here goesÖ.. this is a conversation between my conscience and myself.

Conscience: Why are you not losing weight?
Me: Iím lifting heavier weights. I need to tone up.
Conscience: You are just plain eating more food than you need. Isnít this true?
Me: I guess I do at times. ďsighĒ
Conscience: Come cleanÖ are snacking way too much.
Me: True, but
Conscience: No buts. You can do this. You just donít discipline yourself enough.
Me: I work out hard!
Conscience: Really? Do you push yourself on the elliptical? Could you put the resistance up a little higher and still make it?
Me: ButÖ
Conscience: NO BUTS! Remember!
Me: All RIGHT! Donít scream at me. I get it. Iíve been lazy. Iíll do better.
Conscience: Will you? You said that for Lent you were going to stay off the computer until you got everything done that needed to be done in the mornings. Have you?
Me: Some days. But there have been circumstances. Like sick grandkids.
Conscience: True. So Iíll give you that one. So Lent is half over. What now?
Me: Iím going back to my original plan AND Iím going to stop the grazing during the day. Fruit will be my snack of choice. AND I wonít eat later than 8p.m. of an evening. Iíll watch my portions. We wonít be eating out either! So how is that?
Conscience: Iíll hold you to it and if you mess upÖ.Iíll remind you! That is a promise!!

    Hi! Just wanted to give you an update. SIL has 5 spots on his liver. Dr said mass to big to take out, he wants to shrink it first. Also wants a liver biopsy, more blood work and another cat scan to make sure it hasn't gone to his lungs. Some of it is being done tomorrow. Rev said no sense coming back right away since they are still testing. We are almost packed, so can leave quickly. Guess we will be here for a few more days. It's day by day.

    Pat- just want to let you know I think we are headed back to Iowa this weekend. My son-in-law had a colonoscopy Friday. He has cancer in his colon and liver. He and Rev go see the oncologist tomorrow then the surgeon Friday. This is to much for them to go thru with no family. They have only been in Milwaukee since Sept, so really don't know anyone other than co-workers. I'll keep you posted.

    Pat, Today's a good day to get back to it. I know you have a wedding coming up ... maybe that's the motivation you need :-) emoticon

    Isn't it inconvenient when your conscience won't stop hassling you? emoticon Mine can be a real nuisance too; and it seems like I always lose the argument.

    Sounds like you've been scolded for sure. I still think you're doing great regardless of what the scale says.

Great blog!!!

    Love this talk with your conscience. I have found a new tool (I didn't know it was there) the spark report of daily calorie differential. I think this is going to really help me see how I can improve.

Hang in there I know you can do this and win
