Not There Yet
Sunday, February 15, 2015      20 comments

Didn't do as well eating as I would have liked yesterday. Enjoyed the women's college softball game, though. Today I did better eating. It'll be okay. I'm trying to develop that NO CHOICE mindset every day, but I'm not there yet. Yesterday ... Read more

Wonderful local team dinner last eve. The kale-chicken-sweet potato soup was heavenly and the jalapeno cornbread was very good. But the company was definitely what made it very, very special. I do feel very blessed to be part of this great group... Read more

It's late and not too much time to blog. Good, active day with elliptical workout, playing with kids, and moving while watching my favorite basketball team on TV. Tracking really approximate; probably a little too much food today, but if so, thi... Read more

I'm re-reading Beck green (The Complete Beck Diet for Life), looking for things I missed, and deciding if there aren't more parts of her plan I want to incorporate in my life. I found this suggestion for a card that I had overlooked before: "I h... Read more

Beck quote of the day, "It is a biological impossibility for your weight to go down every day." Isn't that a truth I tend to forget! I think I did good eating, but honestly, I was a little too loose in my approach today. I pre-planned the m... Read more
