Tuesday....Jan. 20th

I do not know why my thoughts are always on food.

I had more struggle today and it was hard to stay within my "losing calories" of 1300. I did manage to do it...but I don`t like that I am so focused on food.

Tomorrow, I am donating blood and since I won`t have to be so diligent about iron....then maybe my food focus will not be so apparent.

I have to get enough iron for my blood donation...they want your hemoglobin level at 12 ...mine was 11 the last time I tried to donate.

I have tried really hard for the past week to get in more iron so maybe by doing that has kept my mind on food.

But truthfully..I just had a strong appetite for the wrong things.

I changed my goal date to the 3rd week or so in April...because of an upcoming church event. The other one was by my birthday.

My ticker reads that as of today...I have 92 days til my goal date. I am more comfortable with that .

I have lost 3 of the 8# I want to lose.

    You have lost pounds and I'm proud of you Callie. You are trying and not giving up. You have a lot of NON food things on your plate and you deal with them and they can add to the stress of life.

    Your picture makes me want to go outside and kiss my horses on the nose. They love to be kissed on the nose, all four of them. emoticon They have really soft noses, esp Khal the fluffiest and softest of all my horses (In the pictures, he's the bay (dark red brown)). I'm going to spend about two hours outside with the horses, dogs, goat, and Sammy, in a little bit. It's very cold but the sun is shining and I want to be out there, after our 12 degree nights and the snow and wind.

    The two hours of walking will give me 12 miles of our virtual bike ride although I also plan to ride my stationary bike for 30 minutes this evening.

    Love you Callie! emoticon
