Hello to all of you,
I ran 4K, not 5, today because I didn’t manage my pace well and just ran out of juice. Doesn’t really matter though. I like having goals and challenges, but any time I get out there and get sweaty is a good exercise day for me. I’m down 3.5 pounds on my Friday weigh-in at 170.5, which I immediately took as license to order the tiramisu (anti-credit) though I started with the grilled salmon (credit). I will be so thrilled to see the 160s. I have not seen those since graduate school. It is hard to actually believe that it will happen, and then maybe even the 150s. I do look around the forum though and see BBE
and now Shcirerf
, and remember that, yes, some people can and do, so I maybe the impossibility of it all isn’t necessarily true, or at least deserves to be tested.
Personals may be a bit jumbled as I might be responding to not your most recent post.
: Welcome! I love to see maintainers. And your starting weight was close to mine. Giant congratulations for maintain for two years – well done.
: That sounds like a really nice night. I would like a fire and whipping wind and feeling cozy. Add a little rain in there, and it’s perfect.
Oh, down a bit - this is working well, let's do this instead.
Oh yeah. This is striking me (in the best way) given the tiramisu I didn’t not plan to eat. (I’m am totally on board with the importance of enjoying food, the problem is that I plan to eat on-plan M-F so it is the day, not the food, that was the problem tonight.) I am so sorry about your dad.
, I hope you enjoyed Frozen and time with your DS. I also want to label things, but mostly I want to label them as wrong: mostly success with a little failure = failure, mostly failure with a little success = failure, and only 100% success = success. I am working on it.
: I am giving your shoulder credit, and you too for taking care of it. It is such a drag when the spirit is willing but the flesh is injured. Sounds like a solid plan for pizza night.
: Thank you for your support. I hope personal training was enjoyable, credit for going either way though. That was a lot of exercise and credits. (And I am sorry if I asked this before but I am always on the look-out for new tools…motivation app? Is it the Grant Boddington one that Ceejay
Pomelo salad (yam som o) is from Thailand and it is unbelievably good. There’s coconut milk and toasted coconut and fresh mint and fried garlic and shallots and lime juice and cashews and a little sugar plus pomelo, which is the most addictive fruit ever, and shrimp.
It is also true for me that some things don’t register as food. “A granola bar doesn't go into my brain as food, so it didn't really satisfy.” This is why I force myself to put everything I am going to eat on my plate before I eat anything. I can look and see for myself that I am about to eat an entire, very substantial-looking plate of food. Sometimes it looks even a little debauched. Buffet plates are pernicious. The book I am reading claims that liquid calories really don’t register. Congrats on making lunch work out despite the Cricket surprise.
Now on to your most recent post: You rock. That is all.
: I love that there is such a thing as a fountain pen users group and that you write each other. I am also enjoying mentally putting your beautiful old-school fountain pens on your new high tech desk. Good for you! Also HUGE CREDIT for tracking. Just the act of writing it down, even scribbled on a napkin, is very helpful IMO.
: Behaviors are more important than scale, so I hope you continue to rock the behaviors.
: Nice to hear that all is well. My daughter is 6 and I am already verklempt about picturing her as a mother and me a grandmother.
, looks like exercise is on track for March. I like the idea of counting minutes (so I assume). I hope you are feeling better soon.
: Credit for tracking even when it is telling you something you don’t want to hear. That is huge.
