Ch 8, Day 9
Rain, rain, and more rain. The storm front is massive. We are in a drought, so this is a good thing. Bad thing for my walk out doors.
I spent some time hunting down some healthier recipes for the Saturday Soiree appetizers I committed to... Read more
Ch 8, Day 8
Gosh, I am dragging this morning. I feel like I am coming down with another cold. I could hardly escape it with DH being down with a cold for a week, and then grand baby.
Think: mind over matter. Just do it. Whatever it takes, stay t... Read more
Ch 8, Day 7
I'm closing the first week of Ch 8, on track and in routine in a healthy and fit way. It feels mighty good, too.
It will be another hot humid day here today. It is time to get out and walk while the day is cooler. I'm going to walk again... Read more
Ch 8, Day 6
Vacation is officially over today. It was really a splendid time all the way around. DH and I both feel like we've gained weight....those darn carbs!!
My friend is babysitting grand baby at our house today as DS2 is having a contractor w... Read more
Ch 8, Day 5
Okay, I went off the deep end with my food choices yesterday....not horribly, but I did exceed my "vacation range" of total daily calories. I can still meet this goal on average over the 3 days if I make good choices today. I didn't walk more ... Read more
Ch 8, Day 4
Having a wonderful time while on vacation with our friends. Conversation with them has been wonderful; lots of laughter. I am enjoying the break from client work.
I am getting used to my new smart phone. My frustration level with it is ... Read more
Ch 8, Day 3
This will have to be quick, as DH is wanting to depart for our trip already. Sigh. After a fitful night's short rest, I am feeling stubborn and will take a few moments to enjoy my coffee and a moment of silence. Gratefully, I will be able to ... Read more
Ch. 8, Day 2
Well I did it! Got my self On Plan for a full day. I feel uneasy, though, I feel unsure of myself this time around. I have no misconceptions; a fall is just a misstep away.
I faced the reality of the scale today, as I wanted to have a ba... Read more
Chapter 8, 100 Days of Accountability
I'm unmotivated. And, I am mad at myself for wasting Chapter 7 away.
"We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing. Action always generates inspiration. Inspiration seldom generates action." (Frank Tibolt)
Ok. I g... Read more
Ch 7, Day 100
Posting Day 100 -- THE BIG DAY -- a day late, sorta says it all. Unmotivated, Uncommitted, Little Follow Through: that's mostly what Chapter 7 was for me. Reflecting, it's hard to commit this reality to word. But after all, these chapters ar... Read more
Ch 7, Day 99
Yesterday's hosted family picnic was a huge success both in terms of enjoyment and my food consumption. Meeting my goal for vacation food range, I was only slightly over my routine range.
Everyone enjoyed the family time ... Read more

Hosting a family picnic at my house today. It should be some nice family time, only it is raining.
A... Read more
Ch 7, Day 97
Ate healthy all day yesterday. If I would eliminate evening snacking from my life, I would already be at goal weight and beyond. I frustrate myself. Nothing to do but move on to this day's opportunities.
I seem to have stepped into the r... Read more
Ch 7, Day 96
This journey is close to ending. Overall, its been unremarkable. Well, maybe remarkable, in that I have wasted this 100 days by not being committed to health and fitness. I've been hanging on by a thread, managing only to gain 3# back. I've ... Read more
Ch 7, Days 94, 95
Days 94 & 95
Ok, I am still eating too much and the wrong things. I am not walking my usual 4 miles most days, but I am still getting out and walking 2 miles while I stroll the baby.
I have 4 days off from sitting and client work. Oh... Read more
