Good morning, Chickies. It's a glorious day here. I am heading outside when I finish this post. My weight is still down today so I'm a happy camper. Had my OP breakfast and am looking forward to the rest of the day. (Can you tell I'm working on having a positive attitude?)
Yesterday I was afraid I'd "Shot myself in the foot." I bought some food bars that are acceptable for my food program. Of course, I couldn't just buy 1 box. I bought 5!!!! Since I'm a food addict, that was a dangerous thing to do. So far, I am managing them. My "habit" seems to have been when I get to my current weight to "blow program" and regain. Please send me some
's. I sooooo want to get into virgin territory and break this cycle.
We've been keeping up with the case also. I can't imagine the terror involved. I've always been a little afraid when traveling in other countries.
Rhonda, Hattie and I went to Cleburne Fitness Center yesterday and are beginning tomorrow. We'll mainly do water exercises. You've inspired me. Thank you. Looks like you've inspired Pam, too. Good success to you, Pam.
That's good that you got to visit with the chiropractor. You got some valuable information.
Nancy, I know your frustration. One of our carpenters wound up being a good friend. Talk about a problem dealing with showing up! It's really hard to deal with when it's a friend. We referred him to some other friends. That was a mistake. Curtis said he will never refer him to anyone else. We've been between a rock and a hard place. I'm surprised we're all still friends.
Rhonda, I hear ya on food struggles. I am either really really "good" or really really "bad." I was talking to a friend the other day about how I've had foods like cauliflower, broccoli, etc.... that have spoiled in the fridge because I was off program. If I'm "indulging," I don't want to waste effort chewing on healthy foods. Seems I save them for when I'm "dieting." And when I get off program, it takes me awhile to get back on track. I have several "drive by" eating attempts. Just don't give up. (I know you won't.) Curtis tells me to remember the progress I've made and remember that most of the time I make good decisions. You do better than I do. Look at your determination. You are amazing. (Can you tell I love you, Cuz?)
The chemical fire yesterday was about 30 or so miles from us as the crow flies, but we were never in any danger from the smoke as the wind was blowing toward the other direction. I have to tell you, though, I teared up when I saw live action on television of the elementary students filing out hand in hand to the buses waiting to evacuate them to a different campus out of harm's way. I was so impressed with the students and teachers. Everyone looked very composed and focused on what to do. I've participated in a bomb scare several years ago and know how they were feeling. I am so proud of them for their response.
JoJo, I hope you get to enjoy some good weather while on your visit. Thank you for popping in to say, "Hi." Did you get to take your doggie with you?
Pam, I'm going to miss BL tonight and will have to catch it tomorrow online. We are going to church for the final interview for our new minister. I am to take his wife and children on a tour of the parsonage. When are you leaving for Florida? That's an excellent price for the health club.
Vickie, looks like you're busy today. I hope all is going well. Do you know when all is expected to be completed? I hope your guys are on track and completion will be soon. Don't let the stress get to you. Will you be getting a whirlpool tub in your new bath? I wish we had one. I miss our hot tub.
I hear Curtis mowing out front. I think I'll go work in rosebeds some. One good thing about our hot dry spell is there's absolute no blackspot on my roses. That said, the bushes still struggled and don't look good. Life goes on even though I cannot (will not?) grow roses like I did in Montana. No more trophy winners for me. Just "color" as they say when the roses don't look good.
Have a good day, everyone. I'll catch ya later.
