Flying by..

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

So far this month is flying by, don't you think? Or is it just me? I guess it's a good thing that I'm keeping busy enough to feel like time is slipping by. I'm not behind on anything (yet) although there are a few things that could teeter into that category easily enough. I'm going to have to change my habits during the day, I think, to make sure that doesn't happen.

Brought that calorie intake back to a more reasonable range. Boy my numbers have been all over the board, high and low, but it must be working. I weighed in today at 245.2, and that's pleasing.

I got my walk in last night with two hills that got my heart pumpin' and my lungs thumpin' so I appreciated the Pull Together soup Bill made last evening even more having worked up an appetite. I think I'm going to keep that recipe and just change the ingredients as needed. I'm a lover of soup, and Bill's a pretty good soup maker, usually just 'pulling together' whatever we have on hand and making magic. Hence, the name.

Oh! I'm starting a sugar-free challenge with Team Zombie!

If you love Zombies, and who doesn't?, you really should check out the team.

It's an awesome group of people who will survive the coming Zombie apocalypse - and you know it's coming! DogStarDaddy is our fearless leader, surrounded mostly by women (poor man) with his trusty sidekick Yagermonster. We're giving up refined sugar and artificial sweeteners now through Feb. 14. I found out about the challenge ~after~ I'd already had 1 sweetener in my coffee and one in my tea, and some honey greek yogurt with sweeteners, so I start tomorrow.

We'll see where I am.. 28 Days Later..
(loosely veiled Zombie reference.. anyone?)
It may be ugly, giving up my Dove Promises rewards each evening. Poor Bill.

DSD and Team Zombie have opted to wait until Feb. 1 to start the 28 Days Later sugar/articifical sweetener free challenge!
That means you can join the group now in a haze of sugar lust, and be good for another 15 days before you have to kick the habit!

    Yes, this month is going way too fast. I was going to blog my 2013 goals and here it is, the middle of the month. Where did the days go?

    This month IS going by way to quickly. I need a few more days.

    Good luck with your sugar-free challenge. I might join except I'm a cut back, not out kind of gal though maybe giving it up for a defined period would be a good idea.

    Good job on the cals and the weight loss! You are inspiring me to get with it as soon as my with-it is feeling like a little gettting.

    Oh and good luck to Bill too!
