A Pumpkin-y kind of Saturday

Really smelling like Fall today.
I see colder weather moving in too.
Not a big fan of Winter but what can we do??
This week flew by.
Journaled every day.
Stuck with my own food.
Turned down a VERY salty lunchdate.
Exercised & stretched 6 days this week.
New products from Origins are working.
One eye is not happy with anything I use. sigh.
But [...]

Falling into Autumn

Not a bad week at all.
I got a lot of personal stuff done.
Worked in the office.
Turned down more crap….both food & work.
Went shopping alone in the rain. LOL
Sticking to the food I bought.
Staying hydrated…so to speak. (a little short)
Exercised every day……one way or the other.
Wt. 191.5 lbs
Weight went up to 192.5 so it’s headed [...]

Another Saturday with……………

……nothing to do but be lazy.
I am keeping up with meditating on a semi-regular basis.
Keeping the weekends just for me unless I get called out.
I did this years ago and not sure how it got trampled on.
Some food choices could have been a LOT better.
Carbs are creeping in there….funny how that happens. LOL
I didn’t [...]

It’s that “back to school” time of the year

Seems funny to see the kids getting on a school bus already.
Where is this year going?
Good week for me and it ended up on a high note.
Spent time with friends both here & from India.
It was nice to have a chat with someone who is calm!!
His heart is so filled with peace and love. Great [...]

Almost Autumn

With the newly mown lawn, it smelled like Autumn outside this morning.
Reminding me that Winter is not as far away as I would like it to be!!
I’ve never seen a year fly by as quickly as this one has. SCARY!
This week was good except for not feeling 100%.
Ate well
Avoided office takeout & rested
Water intake was [...]

Labor of Weightloss

This week was a bust health wise but…
I stuck to the plan as much as I could:
Journaled every day
Got the water in
Did wash loads!
Food was sporadic cause of meds
All in all…..not too shabby.
Lost 2 lbs but that was water weight.
Been bloating on & off.
Here’s to a better week. CHEERS!!!
HAPPY [...]

Sunday’s addition to the “nono” list…..

While on the hunt for scent free and GOOD products….
I found Aveeno shampoos waaaay too scented for me.
I tried one last night and “forgetaboutit”.
So much scent that my eyes & sinuses went nutso.
I had to wash my hair all over again!
AND I had to take a Zyrtec. GEEZ
Suffered ALL day.
Not even going to try [...]

Aveeno…..take me away!

All the Aveeno products just arrived.
Today will be day one for the cleansers….body & face.
In a few days I’ll try the 2 moisturizers.
Then see what happens.
If everything is OK then I get to try the 2 shampoos next week.
One at a time. Fingers are crossed.
Although the Ultra Calming Cleanser is unscented,
the moisturizer is NOT.
I was [...]

A real cookin’ weekend

Decided to do some cooking this weekend.
This way it’s a heat ‘n’ eat week.
I love them…..so easy.
Last week went very well even with the “hurry up I need you” calls:
Exercised @ day….even did upper body twice.
Ate food I planned on
Said NO to junk
Got my water in
Saw the Dr and he is pleased
Meditation is working
BP is [...]

Another Soggy Saturday

Wonder if the sun will return?
Seems like a lot of rainy days here on the coast.
Keeps me busy indoors but too close to the kitchen!!
The week was good. Kept to a routine of sorts.
Not perfect but better than when I was working.
Journaled. Stuck to my food plan.
Skipped office treats & lunch invites.
Got my exercise done [...]
