Ch 6, Day 53
I almost blew my streak today. The morning got busy early and the day just took off on it's own with me trailing behind its pace instead of the other way around.
All set to chow down on a nice dinner. Did a quick tally on the day's foods.... Read more
Ch 6, Day 52
A fabulous day, but I am whipped from working too many hours on too little sleep.
DH and I hosted a lunch for his mother, BIL who is in from out of town, and DHs niece. The Spark People Black Bean Burgers with my own chipotle mayo were a... Read more
Ch 6, Day 51
I had a great day today, that started out with some exercise. I just love getting it done early in the day so that I don't have to give it another thought throughout my day.
Enjoyed a peaceful Sunday and time with some... Read more
Ch 6, Day 50
Weird day. I worked through the night to prepare for a business meeting that was early morning. My whole routine is topsy turvy. I went to sleep at 2p for 7 hours, but I am still tired. Meals are totally whacko. As soon as I am done bloggin... Read more
Ch 6, Day 49
Even though grandbaby is here today, I will enjoy the regular routine of the day, as the weekend is going to be much busier than I like. Lots of activities have their place, but being an introvert, I like quiet, relaxing weekends with nothing g... Read more
Ch 6, Day 48
Spring. It 's coming. I am already waiting with anticipation to enjoy its splendors -- buds sprouting on the trees, the many colors of flowering bulbs, the warmth of the sun. A time of renewal; birth.
And, I think of me. While I wait fo... Read more
Ch 6, Day 47
I'm drinkin' my coffee, waiting for it to work some magic on my dullness this morning. Sigh.
"Triple Crown" of dieting yesterday (ate healthy and in calorie range; exercised; no evening snacking)
Streak of 1 ... Read more
Ch 6, Days 45 & 46
Blessed, but busted day due to a massive food incidence. Ah, let's just say I mega-indulged a chocolate urge 1 day early. Snacked, and no exercise. An example of a "must not" day.
Committed to showing myself some s... Read more
Ch 6, Day 44
My focus this week is to eat within calorie range without snacking, EVERY day. Usually once I get a couple of successful days in, it gets a little easier to keep it going. My temptation today will be my great niece's birthday party. And cake.... Read more
Ch 6, Day 43
Today's been jam packed with exercise
-zumba, 60 minutes
-snow shoveling, 50 minutes
-1 mile walk outside after shoveling, to complete my goal this week to walk 25 miles
Trouble is, I ate too much this week. Maybe 3 days of 7, so ... Read more
Ch 6, Day 42
The week is soon coming to a close. As I reflect, I've made two big changes: 1) go back to exercising early in the morning before any of the day's interruptions, and 2) be flexible and do something besides walking outdoors.
This was hard ... Read more

Still waiting for my java to "kick in." Take away my chocolate, but NEVER my magic bean, LOL
No matter. Time is a-wastin' away. F-O-C-U-S
Feeling satisfied that I worked through a hungry period last night when a... Read more
Ch 6, Day 38
It's all right, even though I overate yesterday. I mean seriously overate. (that means over the calories needed to maintain my current weight, ya know, 15 calories x every pound I weigh).
The world hasn't come to an end. I said it yesterd... Read more
