Ch 5, Day 46
Already behind today....from a late rise. Good thing I am making my own schedule today.
Two On Plan days behind me. Going for a third.
Two nights of no night time snacking (hurrah!) Never mind that I was locked ... Read more
Ch 5, Day 45
Ever notice how great you feel the next morning after being On Plan the day before? It sure seems to make a difference on how I feel about today already. Thank goodness. Got through the first of many tough first days of getting back on track.... Read more
Ch 5, Day 44
I'm supposed to be out walking right now, as I am writing my blog. I promised myself I will, as soon as I finish my last cup of coffee and blog. Yesterday, despite my achievements throughout the day with On Plan food choices, I threw in the ... Read more
Ch 5, Day 43
November 1. I usually welcome it. The first of any month inspires me. Not today.
Today, after three days of eating irresponsibly, I know I have a fight in front of me to get back on track. Again.
Love the highs, loathe the lows. ... Read more
Ch 5, Day 42
The last two days, I ask, WHO IS this person that's inhabited my body? The last two days, I've eaten as though my meals would be my last, EVER. Why would I do that when I knew Monday was my weigh in day? This foreign me, totally sabotaged my ... Read more
Ch 5, Day 41
Hello Sunday morning. Back to a normal day, after last night's family celebration. A lot of love was shared last night as we "broke bread" together. Eating is a spiritual experience for my DHs Italian family. It was wonderful to listen to al... Read more
Ch 5, Day 40
It sure is a chilly one out there this morning, at just 37 degrees. I miss the warmer temperatures and the sunshine already. Now that we had a hard frost, it's time for me to pull out the summer flowers from my beds.

Ch 5, Day 39
Friday. Hello. So glad the month is almost over. Why? I've been working hard, so I am hoping that when I hop on the scale, I've moved the needle downward enough. Yes. enough. This is all so not fun. Yet, I am trying to stay the course. ... Read more
Ch 5, Day 38
I'm on a mission to get as much done as possible this morning so that when grandbaby gets here, I can sit back and enjoy this time completely. Last night she fell asleep in my arms. She looked like a little angel. And so peaceful. I resisted... Read more
Ch 5, Day 37
The act of appreciation and a spirit of gratitude for the small things brings with it joy. "Life becomes religious whenever we make it so: when some new light is seen, when some deeper appreciation is felt, when some larger outlook is gained, w... Read more
Ch 5, Day 36
I am feeling more energy today than yesterday, and the day before that, and the day even before that. Is is real? I guess I will find out as the hours unfold.
Last night I went to bed hungry. VERY hungry. It made it difficult to get to ... Read more
Ch 5, Day 35
Hello, Monday. Sigh. A restless night. I actually got up and took some aspirin for my body's aches and pains. I'd blamed the evening's walk. As I reflect on it today, it had to be all the walking in heels. It's official, one the indicators... Read more
Ch 5, Day 34
I spent over an hour yesterday with my clothes to find something to wear to the Christening today. How come Spark People doesn't list "Trying on closet clothes" as an activity? On with the clothes, off with the clothes a gazillion times....I'm... Read more
Ch 5, Day 33
I am one third of the way through my Fifth 100 Days of Accountability. I feel as though I have some traction with this chapter, finally. I am trying very hard not to focus on anything but the day at hand. I am humbly concentrating on the pres... Read more
