Ch 3, Day 78
A lovely morning...and the birds are singing, more melodiously than is usual. I think they are happy to have a break in the rain too. But more is on the way, within hours ... Read more
Ch 3, Day 77
How about some exercise today? GREAT IDEA! Am I convinced it is? YES, but that means that now I gotta, "DO." Groan, groan, GROAN. For me, lacing up early in the morning is my best strategy, even if it must be in the rain.

I just passed the 25% marker on my third 100 Days of Accountability. The earlier part of my journey lacked momentum, so I am hopeful that the last 30 days of it will be more remarkable.
"Believe and you will achieve."
Simple right? N... Read more
Ch 3, Day 75
Another rainy day. Yesterday, come early afternoon, the day flat-lined. I guess one could really call my Sunday a real day of rest.
A new day! An early morning!
Yesterday was Day 7 of my streak!

Ch 3, Day 74
I recently joined The Slowest Loser Team. I read their Thursday Spark People blog and got hooked on their concept, "Pay the price." Everyday, we make choices in which we pay the price toward our goals, instead of caving in. It is easy to forg... Read more
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, Day 69
Streak of 1 day, down. The first day is always the hardest.
Another beautiful sunny day.
Healthy leftovers for dinner.
Eat 1,500 calories max

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.
