Ch 3, Day 65
Yesterday, DH and I spent a lovely day together. The drive along Lake Erie was beautiful and I ate healthy and stayed the course. Well, until I learned he had M&Ms in the glove compartment. Why oh why don't I believe that I just can't eat one... Read more

Ch 3, Day 62 and 63
Most of yesterday was productive, even though I continue to battle this cold that seems to find new areas of discomfort. The evening took a quick nose dive as I let life's stresses overwhelm me, and I overate in the evening.

Ch 3, Day 61
I rose early this morning...4:45am. That translated into an early breakfast for me at 6:30a. I forgot that it is important for me to hold off with breakfast until 8a, otherwise, I throw my meals off...for example, I was ready for lunch at 10:... Read more

Ch 3, Day 58
Nothing much to add...unless it's some paraphernalia to wire my jaw shut. I can't taste my food because of this cold, but I want, want,WANT to satisfy my taste buds. Foolish, I know, but I've been giving it the good ole' college try without su... Read more

My expectations for the week are low, as I battle this cold that seems to have overtaken me. Though my energy and interest levels are low, I have grown tired of sitting around doing nothing. I am feeling deprived because I can 't taste my coff... Read more
Ch 3, Day 55
A cold is trying to take a hold on me....hopefully I will be strong enough to fight it. It is a quiet day here, but that suits me given the way I am feeling. Doing nothing always makes me feel not right. I may take Molly ou... Read more

Ch 3, Day 52
I am wishing for the return of some nice Spring weather. Too many gray, damp days so far this week. I'll take another stab at trying to rescue April's fitness goals. I am driven to see my goals through yet at the same time I know I am pushing... Read more
