– Had a quiet New Years Day. Finally invented the need to go to the bank to withdraw cash from the ATM just to get a walk, CREDIT moi. Not surprisingly, I wandered into the local book store and there, surprisingly, found a mob of folks who knew of the sale of 20% off everything for four hours. I enjoyed the mayhem, but didn't buy anything.
Eating was on plan, CREDIT moi, including snacks so that I'm streaked to 43. Evening snack was half a pear - they are so good right now. Again, I wanted more and, again, I reminded myself that I didn't need more; I just wanted
– Yay for ham and bean soup cooked from scratch. Double Yay for using someone else's ham bone. Loved the picture of "Haggis and Cracked pepper flavour crisps."
I so want to taste those - but I remember that I don't do potato chips even with a new flavor. Perhaps I can buy a bag, eat one, and then hand it to the first teenager I see, LOL.
– Thanks for the reminder to set up a new Excel sheet for the year if I'm to track seriously.
- Super list of credits, especially "No sugar"
– Kudos for the neat credits, although "Apparently 4 credits for today from HabitRPG"
totally baffles me. That Berry Jelly sounds yummy.
– When we were kids we always had black-eyed peas on New Year's Day. It was good luck to find the dime hidden in the bowl. Kudos for preparing your computer for tracking.
– Kudos for skipping a meal without over snacking to make up for it.
– Neat dialog, "I could eat.." and my brain snapped back "you're not even hungry."
Kudos for keeping eating under control even as you prepare a feast.
- Congrats for breaking that 93kg barrier. (Had I thought of the phrase, "pairing of pear ...,"
I might have had the blue cheese just so I could write that, LOL.) Kudos for leaving some lamb shanks dish behind.
- Congrats for making your Christmas goal; Kudos for setting a reasonable goal for January.
- Great start using your eating plan.

Finalize Your Exercise Plans
If you currently exercise fewer than three times a week, your goal for today is to establish a more frequent exercise routine. Make arrangements to begin a planned exercise program as soon as possible. Meanwhile, set a time to take a walk every day - even if you can go for only five minutes - and put it in your daily appointment calendar or schedule.
