Blue- Thanks for the good read suggestion. I will get it. I really need to look more into getting my blog back up and rolling. Your book might inspire me to launch again.
Ahhhhhhhh......... the "frog story"- insidious eating. I know you get that last sentence. However I think you know yourself well enough to jump outta the water- or food frenzy before it gets you.
I know the frustration of sitting with the bounce house. 2 up/ 2 down- but nothing huge for the effort.
But- the BUT here is this...... HEALTHY! You know that LC is a healthy way of eating and living. To say you will never have any treats is crazy. We can only take one day at a time. Everytime we eat we have a choice to make a great choice for our body. That is all we can do. And when we fall off the rails- get up dust off and get back on plan.
Sorry if I'm on soap box- I mean it as encouraging. But I am right there with ya sister in feeling that no matter what I do- the scale is forever stuck.
Leeann- Love that you are going for a walk. Do your doggers walk with you? I plan on a walk today as well! Ahhhhhh.... The transition to kids becoming adults. Yup it happens in a blink it seems. But at least you still have the DS15 to go. You are so young that you can do anything when you are more "freed up" to do whatever you want. I can see you doing more volunteering ! That is just your heart.
KMOM- hey there- HOW ARE YOU???? water yesterday was terrible. 2/6- (hanging head)- sigh.... today is a better day. Like BLUE- I check my "color" of output.
But right now it is pretty dark. So I need to get on it.
Not to make excuses - but I have become a water snob. I don't like the taste of tap water. I can taste all the chemicals. So I either buy spring water or fill up my container with pure water.
Lori- I totally agree about basic civility- seems gone. But I can only control self. I will continue to be true to me-which I live by the golden rule.
Glad that your nose is doing better. Hope you have a wonderful game today. I admire your passion for a sport.
So I called off work today for 2 reasons. I need to get my brakes done and my boss refused to work with me. My brakes are almost gone and I am afraid to drive, without them in good shape.
I have an appt. at 11- at a reputable shop. It could take a couple hours.
Second- my mom is in the hospital- and due to get out today. So I told her husband I would be on standby to watch the dogs- so her can go to the hospital.
She was ticked he even told me- she doesn't want me there. OK so I am not. She is being evaluated for either heart or stroke. So I will wait to hear. I don't even know what hospital she is in. So I will just wait.
Plus I just needed to get myself together- I really did not have a day to myself after spending a week with DS- and going directly into work. I am just tuckered out. I call it a mental health day - but will get stuff done I want done on my time.
I didn't even want to option to work from home- I just want time to myself.
I am down another pound- I am not going to do th happy dance until it really "sticks".
BLUE/ KMOM- I do IF too. My eating window is from 12:30- 5:30. I have a SMALL- protein 1/4 cup tuna/chicken salad - then a reasonable dinner.
I know you are the party animal you are and eat later. But you most likely, stay up later than me. I am in bed usually around 9:30- 10:00 latest. I can't sleep with food in the belly. I think it feel bad.
My body can't slow down and relax- if the gut is busy trying to "process food". But that is just me. Some people like to feel "comforted" with a little something before bed.
My Grandmother - was a tiny tiny lady. She used to have vanilla ice-cream and a cup of coffee EVERY NIGHT- then she would go to bed.
She lived into her 90's-
Ok all- need to get stuff done- walk first then brakes.
I plan to put a chicken in the oven for roasted chicken- AND ribs in the Pressure Pot- That way I will have meals for the rest of the week. NO CHEATS for me TODAY. I am feeling really good physically. Strong, flat belly, more energy than I have had in a while. More balanced, and just overall healthy.
Have a great day gals
