Ch 3, Day 73
I've developed an impatience about getting through each day to have another day down with my goals accomplished. I am not sure why I am feeling this way but it is creating an aura of tension around my days that isn't welcomed. Maybe it is beca... Read more
Ch 3, Day 72
A new day! A new day of eating and I am looking forward to it. I had to forget about the yummy black bean burgers with chipolte mayo yesterday 'cause of mid day snacking....so I really plan to enjoy them today. I suppose something is really w... Read more
Ch 3, Day 71
I am going for the kind of day like I had yesterday. I set intentions for the day and followed through on all of them. I even forced myself through the last one to put some plants in the garden. Dare I think I might have my groove back on? B... Read more
Ch 3, Day 70
A two day streak for me and climbing (imaginary pat on back). Everyone starts a streak off from ground zero so I have many sparkers leading the way for me. I usually find that each day gets easier, but I'm still weaning off junk from the past ... Read more

Ch 3, Days 67 and 68
I really loved Mother's Day this year. It was simple, yet so lovely. I passed on a couple of invitations to go out, preferring to cook a simple, intimate breakfast around the kitchen table. Everything turned out l... Read more
Ch 3, Day 66
I struggled to find a quote that captures the way I am behaving, feeling these days, especially one that says, "Your behavior says you do not care about you. When will you make your health and well being #1?" And then I found this quote:

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 64
A new day equals new opportunities. Today is special for me....DH and I will celebrate our wedding anniversary. Time to put life's busyness and structure on the back burner and just enjoy this moment, this time, this day.

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

Greetings, May! Love the hope that comes with a new month. It makes me want to go crazy making plans to reach for the moon with my goals. Yet, I am stopping myself in my tracks saying, "Easy, girl."
Time to play it a little smarter this ... Read more

It's a new day.
I have a new opportunity to embrace clean, healthy eating and start a streak.
Should be seeing DS3 today.
Tomorrow is May....I just love the hope... 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
Ch 3, Day 57
