Ch 8, Day 26
Starting the day out hungry, but it's too early to eat now, and I don't want to throw my eating Plan off kilter right from the get go. I am going to set this aside and get out and walk my4 miles. All ready, I notice it is no longer light out a... Read more
Ch 8, Day 25
25% of the way done with Chapter 8. I dropped 3# in the past couple of weeks. I don't usually weigh myself, but....well, don't really have a reason. I've been On Plan for 6 days this week and wanted to make note of some positive change.

Ch 8, Day 24
As I type "Day 24" I think, goodness, I am almost at 25% of the way through Chapter 8. It seems to have come so quickly. Silly, me. It only feels "quick" because my streak has only been going on for the last 5 days now, LOL. Still, I feel li... Read more
Ch 8, Day 23
I'm back into my regular routine today. Hoo-ha! It was great to waken, relax with my coffee, and get out and walk. Took MIL to the Farmers Mkt. She insisted I use half of her coupons for myself. I picked up beets, cantelope, tomatoes, leeks... Read more

Catching up on my accountability blogs. It's been extremely busy for me. Tomorrow is my last day of being over committed. I am glad.
Somehow I managed to exercise and eat healthy again and in calorie range.
What a relief. It ... Read more
Ch 8, Day 18
I posted this quote when my dear friend Julia lost her MIL. When I went to change it, I thought I would leave it, because it has deep meaning for every day life. I think of my own sadness for my friend who is battling cancer, and how dear and ... Read more
Ch 8, Day 16 - A Day to Remember; 17....a day to forget
Today is my birthday.
For those that know me well, I am one of those people that has always had to celebrate my birthday "on THE day." DH has learned that lesson well, and even though we'd celebrated the August birthdays last weekend, he ... Read more
Ch 8, Day 14, Day 15
I feel pretty happy this morning. I finally feel like I am on the right path toward health and fitness again. Grabbing a fruit yesterday, every time I HAD to eat, helped get me through some difficult moments.
It was so darn busy, I didn'... Read more
Ch 8, Day 13
An early morning start. It is far too cool of a morning for the month of July; feels like the fall season is pressing inward much too soon.
Visited with my friend who has cancer yesterday, who just underwent surgery, and who is now home. ... Read more
Ch 8, Day 12
Is this really it? The time when all the food events are over? The time now, that I can't trip myself up? The time when the health and fitness journey really CAN happen?
Let's be serious for a moment.
While I am grateful, there are ... Read more

Ch 8, Day 10
Hello, day! Awoke to a 3:30a alarm on my smart phone. It's a new phone for me. Neither DH or I could figure out how to shut off the alarm so we're both up (sorry, DH!).
Looks like it will be a super productive day, at 5a I already have ... Read more
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
