No gifts from the scale. Bah Humbug!

The scale still reads about 187-188.
No changes there.
The best that can be said is I am not gaining this Holiday Season!
I should be thankful for that given the recent menu & handouts.
I have received a lot of Holiday foods and only tasted a few.
Not beginning another new year at near 200 again.
Wishing a very [...]

NO peeking allowed!

Everything is stacked up in the corner.
Told Jen there is NO peeking allowed this week.
Patience….Christmas is almost here.
The week was just barely OK.
NO journaling.
Bare essentials for exercise.
Food was OK but not great.
Water was sparse.
Not a good start to the Holiday week to come.
I better watch it this week or the gain is going to [...]

Santa was a busy man last week

Just like Santa, I have been busy getting all festive for the Holidays.
Magically your heart feels lighter & the mind fills with visions of sugarplums.
All the basic stuff is done.
Did the shopping and held back a bit on goodies.
Trying not to gain a ton of weight this month.
I would really like to lose another pound [...]

Looks like the land of Oz here

Tinsel & lights & decorations OH MY!
All I need is Toto running around!
The house looks cozy and that’s all I care about.
It’s all about feeling comfortable for 2013.
I want to be comfortable in my own skin too.
Happy with who I have become.
That’s the plan.
Had a good week.
Lots of pain but the rest was OK.
Journaled
Exercised
Good food [...]

Back to routines

Although I have been keeping up with my exercise routine,
I fell off the food bandwagon during the storms.
It’s been slow going getting back on schedule.
I was eating dinner between 3 & 4 PM just to keep up with volunteering.
SO GLAD that’s all over with now.
That kind of life is not for me anymore.
Nice surprise on [...]

Thanksgiving week

There are a lot of things to be grateful for this year.
Least of which is health & happiness.
We do have an abundance of that in our house.
Although we are not rich in material things, we have each other.
A good lesson learned from all the storm damages.
My week was ok and I lost one pound .
Not [...]

The dreaded weigh-in

OMG!!! I GAINED WHAT???? 3 1/2 LBS????
God help me. We had no money, no healthy food to speak of and
no gas to get to a supermarket even if we did have money.
But we are alive, had heat & electric almost the whole time and
we stayed safe & sound. Can’t ask for more.
I [...]

It’s Sandy’s fault

I haven’t lost any weight except for 1/2 a pound.
It’s hurricane Sandy’s fault.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!! ROFL
So there are no big numbers on the scale this week either.
Not that I have big numbers anyway.
I did journal.
I exercised everyday.
Food choices were good.
Liquid intake was also good.
I am taking the weekend off [...]

Fog in the City

Lots of fog in town today.
Reminds me of the old Sci-Fi movies.
Scary scene outside. Perfect for a Fall Day!
It was a good week.
I ate well.
Exercised.
Journaled.
Meditated.
But the scale is not cooperating at all.
Maybe this is the Living Lean weight as they say.
The weight my body is comfortable with sitting
in this chair and leading this kind of [...]

Taking time

Today I will take the time out to meditate.
Doing it as soon as I post this.
Hours pass and then next thing I know it’s bedtime and no meditation!
The week was an OK one.
Did all my exercises.
Journaled on & off….lazy.
Food & water were both good.
There was room for improvement I will admit.
The scale did not move.
Face [...]
