Chapter 16 -Day 64
Yesterday was a super good workout with shoveling 10" of heavy snow. I topped that with 1.5 hours of sledding with granddaughter; I did a lot of pulling her up the hill on the sled. I took her to the same spot I used to take my boys to when th... Read more
Type 2 Diabetes lesson...maybe not too late for another
Doctors are treating BILs other leg right now, trying to clear it of more infection so that they can amputate below the knee instead of above. This is likely to be a 2 week process.
Doctor is requiring that once BIL is able to start rebuil... Read more
Chapter 16, Day 61
In my busy streak for my business, closing company books for year. I know I am not too busy, though, to fit in at least 10 minues of exercise daily, so that is my Commitment to Self today, and everyday now until the end of January. Course, mor... Read more
Chapter 16, Day 58 ... family sorrows from diabetes
I didn't want to get up this morning and rise again to deal with BIL's sad fate: the first of two amputations was done last night; the second will be done next week. We are all so sad for him.
He's a type 2 diabetic. A snitcher of swee... Read more
Chapter 16, Day 52
Such mild weather, 55 degrees! I must find some time to walk outdoors today.
More setbacks for BIL; hope he turns the corner soon.
Made huge batch of healthy turkey soup
On track with fitness and Food Plan

Chapter 16, Day 52
Ever since getting home from the hospital from BILs surgery, I am trying to shake off the cloak of despair that covers me. The doctors post surgery discussion deflated our earlier optimism for BIL to keep his legs, and saving just one will be a... Read more
Chapter 16, Day 51
Thanksgiving was wonderful, while the food and family gathering was beautiful, we got the best news: My husband's BIL's doctors came by for a consult & tomorrow BIL goes into surgery again, this time to try and save his legs. The surgeons are ... Read more
Chapter 16, Day 50
Enjoying my coffee and some spark time, before the busy day begins. I made the applesauce and candied sweet potatoes last night. Today I will make the stuffing and Extreme Chocolate Cake....the latter will be able to duke it out with Uncle Jos... Read more
Chapter 16, Day 48
Yesterday was super windy, and mild in temperature.....a great day for the walk I did not take. From lack of initiative, I guess it was a "rest day" and the only one I will take this week (self: promise!) On a positive, I stuck to my Food Plan... Read more
Chapter 16, Day 46
Rainy with mild temperatures in the 50s today. Our 18" of snow is melted.
I am encouraged by a 1# weight loss
Focused on health and fitness again
Worked in some bonus fitness minutes while waiting for the microwave ... Read more
Chapter 16, Day 45 ... how will you get through Thanksgiving week without gaining weight?
The message ringing in my head is very clear: dump the refined carbs pronto, if you want to lose weight. Simple, but yet so hard.
I've done it before, I can do it again.
Well, except for Thanksgiving Day. Everyone will be bringing th... Read more
Chapter 16, Day 42
Lots of snow everywhere. How we escaped the first round of 6 feet of snow with just a dusting is unimaginable, when just 2 miles up the road, the highway is closed to traffic. The Thruway is closed to the state line of PA, and also as far eas... Read more
Chapter 16, Day 38.....oh,no....the mirror!
Mirror reflections: that would be a big ole ouch! Was that me, really? Where did that middle "pot" come from? In my mind, it was still gone from my work over the Summer Challenge.
Clearly, my sloppiness in health and fitness over the Fa... Read more
Chapter 16, Day 29
A busy day ahead of me. I'm ready for it. The focus is on me first. Though I wasn't planning to, I slept in and got more rest (my plan was to rise early and start in on client work). I'll get out and walk in a few minutes, and then hit the cl... Read more
Chapter 16, Day 28
Yesterday was a busy day of client work....chained to my desk, my doing. I found it challenging to get just 10 fitness minutes in, and that's a poor showing of making my health and fitness a priority. I could have done better with my food choi... Read more
