Incredibly busy day 9.75 hours of work with NO break! Chowed down on three peanut butter crackers and just a cup of yogurt for breakfast. Going to be low on calories today, but that's okay since the last couple of days I was over. Now, to get some chores done and some chicken chili in the slow cooker to have on hand while company is visiting over the holiday.

I woke up about 4 am and still felt decidedly sick, so decided not to be a hero/idiot and called in sick again. I was tempted to go in for the air conditioning, but I've been feeling better every day and a I don't want to risk "re-sickening". Appetite is still off, but I'm drinking lots. My husband brought up one of my favorite lines from the movie "The Devil Wears Prada"..."I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight!" In my case, it seems I'm just one sinusitis away from my pre-vacation weight!

I'm relatively new to this team, but I was so surprised to wake up this morning to a flurry of congratulations on my 7 years of maintenance. Thank you to everyone who sent me goodies and wrote kind things on my page.
God bless you all on your own maintenance and healthy journey!

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT
Wow! July 1 already - the year is half over. Christmas is just 25 weeks away!
Yesterday was a day of relaxing sloth as I read my way through a Michael Connelly novel. Himself and I did hike over to the Deer Park - about 4 miles - in the afternoon - but otherwise I just wallowed in the kick-back summer fun of a day with a detective story. Today though? Today it's back to the gym. Tomorrow is my July weigh-in. I think I will still be within my goal spread. I've been having breakfast smoothies lately - an unusual craving in the mornings. Usually I like something with whole grains, but the extra punch of spinach, bananas, and almond milk has been the only thing I've wanted for several days. Happily, it's all good for me.
Nancy, good luck on the job front - Grandmothers? Lucky blessed joy to you all.
