Gearing up for the Fall

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

I have had a great summer - filled with travel, family, grandkids, friends, and lots of good times!
I conquered what seems like a lifelong habit of gaining weight while at the beach - and lost weight instead. I have been flying high emotionally.

So the last week has been a quiet slowing down -- as summer begins to fade.

I have not lost any more weight - but I also have not gained any back.

My photos from the summer show me that i still have several pounds left to lose, so there is still lots of work to be done.

I had taken a break from tracking while away for the week - and I now need to get back to it seriously every day. There's no more vacation now.

Also, classes start up in a week - so I am planning for them - always changing things around and finding ways to improve the courses I teach.

The fall is such a great time of year - especially here in New England.
I need to continue all those great habits I developed this summer - and transfer them over to the fall season.

Switching gears now.....

---pick out some new recipes to try

---make a shopping list

---and get going!

I'll be logging in and tracking my food and exercise every day again!

    You've done absolutely great.

Although I haven't taught for many years -- I was also a student for many years -- and I still miss that "gearing up for the fall" back to the classroom feeling!

    I've never been to New England in the fall, but I'm sure it must be beautiful!
There are so many great fall vegetables, and finding new recipes for them is always filled with fun and anticipation. I know you'll choose healthy ones!
September 1 has always seemed the beginning of a new year to me, much like January 1. Summer vacations are over, the weather is changing, and it's time for reorganization and getting back to basics.
And you've got some good plans!
