Good morning and Happy St. Patrick's Day,

No green food here except my salad. I have done smoothies with kale or spinach, blueberries and it's an interesting color.

I wish St. Patrick had shown up here and chased he snakes out. There are some trails I love to walk and I make my sons or husband go first so there aren't any surprises along the way. Nothing can make this person jump higher than a snake showing up.

We are in heavy rain mode this week (and much of last) and I'm struggling with doing my exercise. It's not just a good idea - it makes a difference in my blood sugar. So this is my focus this week.

Michelle, I like your attiude and honesty. It's disappointing when the scales don't reflect our effort but it's good to look at those other things- how clothes fit, how you feel, etc.

Joan, I'm envisioning your green omelet and I think I'm glad you didn't decide to make your oatmeal green emoticon emoticon

Thanks for sharing - it helps me -

Today is my weigh-in day - I stepped on my scale here at home and it is apparent that little, if any, progress will be reflected on the scales at the WW center this morning - maybe even a small gain - tears welled up - I, too, worked hard all week, and made 1000 good choices in food & activity & other things related to my health. But my weigh-in is likely to be something not to brag about. I do so want my total weight to keep going down - but here I sit, tearfully, on a small plateau. I will make good choices today, and many good choces throughout the week, with maybe a not-so-good choice here & there - but I will have a good week. Just like last week was a good week. I know all of my hard work counts - but I need some more good results - I am going to Ireland for the first time in May (!!!) and I want to feel and move as good as I can - I will be walking a lot of backroads, as well as walking miles around the city of Dublin.

I do want to take a moment today to thank St. Patrick for driving all of the snakes out of Ireland - I got nothin' in particular against snakes, but it will make my walks a bit more pleasant, not having to worry about them :)

I feel pretty sad this morning, for some reason, and my mood was dampened a bit by the scale, but now I am off to dry the tears and move about in this brand new day. And make lots of good choices. Slainte!

Happy St. Patricks day guys. Joan thank you for the review of my blog. But as I hopped on those scales they stayed the same. Now I will be honest I was a bit upset....but then I thought about it for a minute....i've exercises more, ate a bit less, and slepted as I should, but maybe my water wasn't what it should be, and we know muscle weighs more than fat. My clothes are fitting better and I've been out walking again. So i'm just going to be ready for this next weigh in. the scales are not my only credibilty on this journey.

Green foods today sounds like a plan.

Michelle

To begin with I want to wish Michelle the best of luck on her weigh in today. She has been working so hard, and if you have not read her blog entry from yesterday, go read it. It's worth the read and makes one stop and think about things.

Today since it is St. Patrick's Day I am going to focus on ''eating my greens." Yes, I am going to go ''green'' with each meal today. Yesterday I was wondering, ''okay how do I get green with my breakfast?" My breakfast is always the same two things. I either go with oatmeal or with eggs on a mulit-grain English muffin. So I thought, wait a minute, I can turn that egg into an omlet. So I chopped up some spinach, green peppers, and green onion blades, for my green for breakfast.

So what are you going to do on this St. Patrick's day? Whatever it is make sure its healthy and most of all fun.

Love,
Joan
