Ch 8, Days 19, 20, 21
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
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

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
