With a major winter storm on our door step, I think I am going to be doing the Christmas decorating, work around the house, snow removal and whatever else we can do without going out on the roads!! Sun. the wind is to be whipping up a blizzard for us so may be in for the weekend and temps are a high of zero. (Weather not made for whimps, so I like the indoors!!) emoticon Whoops, frozen tears!!

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

Took my daughter to have 3 wisdom teeth pulled and will be on call all weekend if her hubby needs help... finish decorating our tree and house for Christmas and challenge my DH to several wii resort games. May end up having to shop for a new clothes dryer... WHY do appliances always seem to break down right after all the Christmas shopping is done heh Enjoy the crock pot full of homemade chicken soup emoticon

Although tomorrow is cold, DH has outdoor plans so I will prepare a diet frienfly chili for us. Stay within calorie range and do my chair exercises.

Eating is not going to be that healthy but plan on going to the gym on Saturday morning. Saturday night will be going to the Christmas Parade and probably will get some walking in; definitely getting up and down trying to round up the boys.

Go to the gym at least 1 morning, possibly both Saturday and Sunday for 45 minute to 1 hour workout. Plan to enjoy playing with my granddaughter on Saturday. Have been invited to an open house on Sunday so will make healthy food choices.

today is being spent running around, packing for our 2 long days road trip from GA to AZ starting tomorrow morning early. While traveling, I plan to eat light and probably salads mostly instead of burgers or snacks.

Saturday morning I'm going to get my hair done--walking the 1 3/4 mile to the salon. If the weather isn't too cold & my hair too damp afterward, I'll walk back home too!

Healthy urban living in Chicago (Central Time)--lots of walking, train & bus commuting, CSA freggies in the summer & fall!

This weekend? Friday I will do some calorie burning vacuuming to get ready for decorating the tree. I did some baking this week, so I am on a break from tempting smells and sights. More packages to wrap. Relaxing and reading and catching up on the way too many shows I have on my PVR.
All my usual dog walking. Three shih-tzus 5 times a day. Just in a bunch of snow, right now.

Umm, well...this isn't going to be a super healthy weekend for me, but as long as I get back on track on Monday I should be ok.

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

Swimming tomorrow morning; in the evening I'm invited to a potluck so I have to find a healthy recipe.
Martial arts class on Sunday, and in the afternoon the (grown-up) kids and I will be making German Christmas cookies and then trim the tree. Lots of pitfalls there to challenge me!

... Saturday: taking granddaughter to see The Nutcracker for the 14th year in a row (and probably the last one, since she is going to be in college next year) ... Sunday: church twice, lunch and dinner with friends ... Everyday: eat within my calorie limit and exercise ... that covers emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and physical health! :)
