Eating was sufficiently on plan, CREDIT moi. Only 'sufficiently' because we made dinner out of a reception in the evening - as planned. But I dawdled about talking with friends and didn't have the chicken skewers that would have served as protein, so I had chunks of cheese. Close enough.
Walked, CREDIT moi, as I do. I need to work on finding more scheduled gym classes since I've found that I do better in a class than on my own. On my own, I tend to detect that I've done enough sooner than I do in a class
Introducing the notion "Artist Proof" sent me to discover that Rembrandt, who also used his own press to make his etchings, was a meticulous taker of proofs as he continued to re-work his plates. And that a limited number edition of a print does not count the artist proofs taken before the print run - some artists taking as many as 20. Your world never ceases to amaze. Kudos for being "careful"
with your food choices in the midst of all this.
Yep, finger food is a challenge - Kudos for recognizing that before you get to the graduations. Sufficient dry walking shoes is such a good commitment to doing your exercise.
There's a lot of mileage to be had from the "hunger is not an emergency" line from Beck.
It also helps me to remember that I've probably not been stomach hungry
since childhood; my current hunger
is longing for a different emotional state changing from the current boredom, anxiety, or tension.
- Thanks for Beck's reminder of the "difference between things that are hard and things that are impossible." Your DS's challenge detecting the small differences in letters so reminds me how amazing it is that the brain can read at all.
- Seems smart to stay mindful of your knees; they don't seem to get stronger with usage as do muscles. LOL at your 3 year old using a doll's hand to do the naughty. Perhaps I could convince my DW to pop a few nuts into my mouth so they wouldn't count.
- Super neat that you have "olive oil on order from Italy."
I've avoided getting vested in the different olive oils since there seems to be no upper bound in their prices.

The Benefits of writing Down What You Eat
Several studies show that keeping a written record of what you eat increases the likihood that you'll lose weight and keep it off. One study conducted at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Illinois, found that dieters who kept detailed food logs were even able to lose weight over the winter holiday season. Dieters who didn't keep a log gained weight.
