June 7th~Snack Attack

Friday, June 07, 2019

I had a great morning..got yard work going..I dare not say done. It will not ever be done..possibly caught up for a bit is the best I can hope for!
My son came over and sharpened the blade on the lawnmower..wow ..that made a difference!!
Then got some of the mowing done. Thinking I need to do like the farmers or ranchers do. Have a pattern for rotation. Mow this part today..this part tomorrow..etc. Then by the time it is all done..repeat! Sounds good. I really Really miss my riding mower!! Maybe next year!
The storms rolled in midafternoon as usual. But today they just blew in ..wham!! We were on the back deck having lunch..the wind came up and clouds rolled over. We looked up just as a huge thunderclap rolled across the sky accompanied by a bolt of lightening. The kids were up and gone! They have two big dogs that panic with thunder so were dashing home to get them in! Then the hail came..then the sun..now the rain..and sun at the same time. Mother Nature is seriously confused!! As am I!
I was just fixing my lunch when the kids got here with lunch for me. Not what I had planned but I appreciate the thought and action. My body is telling me it is ok. My mind or appetite whichever it is ...has declared a sugar shortage. All that keeps rolling thru my head is chocolate cup cakes, brownies....mmm chocolate..surprise!!

Now why do those rolls look so cute on that lil one and not on me!!
Of course it is the night before weigh in...Of Course..that is what it is.
I have decided that my body trembles in fear at the idea of Onderland. I have been on the verge, ready to drop in ..and Whamm-O I eat too much, I eat wrong..or I go off the bridge and just dive in to piggyville! Always on the night before Weigh In..see a pattern there!
Well I have declared ..I am in charge here..and there will be no falling off the rails tonight.
One day or night at a time..the reality is...

I have to stop to think and decide..

The line has been drawn..the battle is engaged.
So off I go to face the enemy ( the fridge!)...closing with wishes for a great weekend..and a funny ...nite ya'al

    That comment about night before weigh in when you have a goal coming up is so true for me. I'll sabotage myself every time!

    Crazy weather here every day. Your kids sound great!! I love dark chocolate and have a little every day. The tea quote was hilarious. I'm having some tea but not the same kind. LOL.

    Why, oh, why do we sabotage ourselves. We say we want to be free of allllllll this excess weight … but then pack back on the pounds.

    How did last night go??? How was weigh-in???

    Hoo-boy, don't get me started on chocolate! My worst nighttime craving. But you know what "they say": A day without chocolate....ok, I don't know what they say actually, but it still encourages me. Love the pictures!
