So good to 'see' you, LC
I think the measuring with a pair of pants you like can be really good...it's so motivating when you fit into them! But in case you lose a lot from your upper body, you might want to measure all over, too...or pick a shirt to fit into as well.
I'm back after a week spent with my best friend, who came out for a long visit.
It was good to see her, but I definitely needed to return to my gym/food plan/normal schedule after all that eating out, running around, and staying up late.
, your dinner sounds delicious!
I couldn't stand the thought of cooking, so we're having a cold chicken salad with nectarines from Cooking Light.
, you are a doll, as always.
A is so super-blessed to have you in her life. Hope you have a wonderful time tonight...what is the sunset ceremony about? Sounds interesting!
, glad you had a good time! Welcome back...I hear you on how good it is to be back to the normal life.
back! Sounds like your parents will be a great support to you! When you're really ready to restart, no potato chip will get in your way.
I know how hard it is to change your life that way...but it helps if you think about when you'll have few temptations and start P1 then, to set yourself up for success. For instance, I wouldn't start P1 in a week when I have two birthdays, a shower, and Christmas, you know?
We'll be here to support you, too. Just keep posting and keep your hand out of that potato chip bag!
How'd the hair cut/color go, Schatzi
? Bet you look awesome! Hey, I read that hot drinks actually cool you down (and cold drinks make you hotter) because your body adjusts to that temp...cools down to compensate for the heat in the drink)so keep on drinkin' that coffee!
, I hear you about grad school. It can suck away your life! But it comes back quite quickly once you're done. Don't worry...you're on the home stretch now!
You can do it! I was talking about you with a friend of mine that loves ratties, too. I gave her a rattie stuffed animal (from Ikea) for Christmas. It was so cute!
Busy, busy, busy trying to get things caught up with my friend gone. Did my "pain in the butt" class this morning...yikes!!! It's good to do it, though...and eating has been good today. Back to measuring/counting calories now that I'm not eating out at every meal like I was with my friend here.
Wish I could get in the garden, but it's rained all day. Hot and muggy! Might try to work on a quilt or on some mending tonight. Have a great afternoon, chickies!
