Funny sync-up, both being awake 3ish. Some sort of disturbance in the force, i guess.

Not a holiday for me but just about might as well be b/c work apps aren't working and there doesn't seem to be anyone manning the help desk.

Woot! Good morning all! I need to get out of bed, just very tired this morning, so much for holidays.

I had a sort of stressed out but oddly fun holiday dealing with issues in seeing old friends, one of which was my favorite DQ sundae lol. It is gluten free (although there can never be a guarantee in eating at a fast food place) & I had it twice in two days, handled the calories well, left some in the bowl & was not tempted to binge from the sugar later, nor will I want it again for a long time. This was a departure from how I used to be so is an NSV.

Calories for day 1699, 12,000+ steps.

Have a career related lunch in another town today & there will be nothing gluten free so probably won't eat anything as I am committed to GF but it can be difficult to implement. I saw a specialist recently about taking a blood test for celiac but am unwilling to start eating gluten again before hand. I am happy to just be called gluten sensitive lol. I do know I got very ill a few weeks ago when I ate two wheat based donuts so I believe that gluten sensitivity is a good way to explain it.

Day 8, I guess? Yesterday I was visited by a horde of stress-producing glitches and a freelancer that just was not getting the concept of what he was writing. I started out feeling so good and even after the issues started I was telling myself that I would not be derailed. And I wasn't, not completely. I ate more than I needed but only in the approved manner and mostly fruit and veg.

But what a terrible mood I ended up with! I went to rehearsal, which made me feel a little better, and then walked an extra 1000 steps to get in more walking before bed in the hopes of soothing.

The issues are just starting to ease up, here at the end of the day, but I'll have to work longer to get things done that I would have finished earlier. Anyway. It'll be good to finish stuff and then ... tomorrow will be a new day.

I haven't walked yet and am heading out the door ... NOW.

Talking Happy Monday!

Second official WI has me down .8, enough to move my ticker, huzzah.

I can do better, though -- only got to yoga twice last week, due to a combo of the last days of the month and a fluish ailment. Life begins again, however, and it is sweet.

I'm just heading out for a morning walk. I've got carpenters coming today, replacing windows on the ground floor and in the basement. It will be fantastic to be able to open the basement windows easily to air it out and to get breezes blowing right through the ground floor on warm days.

I'm moving my computer up to the desk upstairs -- we don't heat the upstairs, other than on especially frigid winter nights -- so I work downstairs until it's warm enough up there.

Planning to go to a lunchtime hot yoga class and then ce soir I have choir practice. On we go!

Yo, lies! Hope all are well and all is well.

Congrats on your ticker victory & the great weigh-in, Arabella! Woot!

I am still around but no longer doing ticker updates or daily posts anywhere for a while. Have been maintaining well in my range around 125.2, kind of realizing a lot of things I have learned on this long long long journey are no longer relevant to me but that maintaining from 120-129, caring about people who care about me, working, and exercising will always matter to me.

To any along the path I have left behind, please know I will always be in the palace more or less & definitely will be posting here again at some point when work & some other things lighten up.

Woot to all royals. Enjoy life. Be light. Forgive & care about each other. Huzzah.

Smile Third Monday WI report


Third WI report has me down 1.6 for a total of 4 pounds in 3 weeks. I'd like faster better but will take it. I'm actually into the next decade but need to be down .4 more to have it register on the ticker.

Made it to yoga four times last week and had an average of over 10,000 steps a day although I didn't hit the target on Friday. Food was good. I did have a piece of a spectacular hazelnut-chocolate meringue cake I made for a friend's birthday party. And over the weekend, I had a few nibbles while cooking and etc. That foolishness stops here and now b/c I know where that slippery slope winds up.

In any case, I will have DH awaiting weekly report again next week, which is just that much more motivation and also means that I won't be able to stop weighing in and end up lost again. Thank goodness!

We had an awful weekend, cold and windy and torrentially rainy on Saturday, grey and cold yesterday. So much easier to feel good when the weather's better, which it is today. I think I'll get my sheets and nightie into the laundry for a bedtime treat for myself, a bed that smells like heaven.

Amarantha, thanks for reassuring that you'll be around. May you remember we walk with you where you travel.

Big day today. Work, plus have to (possibly) submit a video for a virtual choir. Live choir practice tonight, 45 mins away. Plus, of course, yoga and walking. On we go!

Love to all, in the Palace or on walkabout. Let's make this a good one!

arabella-congrats on your weight loss in the past 3 weeks!

amarantha2-will be thinking of you , whether in the palace or elsewhere.

and greetings to all our royals. have just been maintaining, not losing, but ok for now. my condo closing kept getting cancelled and rescheduled for a long time now. it finally closed at end of day. what a long, hard battle this has been. definitely relieved, and grateful that this very big weight has been lifted. had added calories to maintain, but not gain, and have kept up with exercising. am ready again to go back to lower cals and get on with losing.
bronchitis finally cleared up, and ready to get back in the saddle again. it is hot, hot, hot here---normal for this time of year, of course, but had gotten spoiled after having a mild spring. well, queenlies, i am thinking of you all, both in around the palace. take care.

WSW, congrats on the condo closing!

Those things can be so stressful, especially when they drag on. So glad your bronchitis is gone, too, and well done on the maintenance front. Things are looking up, eh.

As for the heat ... my dear, if only I could take some of that burden. Our spring continues mostly cold, grey and damp.

Nevertheless, on we go. I've been listening to the Jon Gabriel audio when I go to bed every night and I think it makes a difference. Even if I do often sleep through most of it.

Let's make this a good one!

thanks, arabella!
when you mentioned the jon gabriel audio, it reminded me that i do much better when i listen to my meditation cd's regularly, and will get back in to doing that. also read about the gabriel method, and it sounds interesting. wish i could send you some of this excess heat. hope your weather improves soon.

did well on food plan and with exercise today. have a pleasant evening.

severe storms earlier this evening, but right now there is a gorgeous sunset, which i am enjoying. went over cal count today, but not by much. need to be more vigilant tomorrow, though. hope all in and around the palace are having a pleasant evening.

awake way too early this morning, but have lots of laundry to do, so thought i would seize the opportunity and do something productive at least. also, listened to a meditation cd and a guided visualization, which seems to have been helpful, so can't really complain about losing a bit of sleep.

it is also supposed to cool down today from the scorcher that was yesterday, and i am looking forward to that little reprieve.

planning to stick to my basic food and exercise program for today. simple is the word of the day for me today. well, queenlies, i am thinking of you all, and hoping that you will all have a good friday, and beginning of your weekends. take care, one and all.

Another pound gone, for five off in 4 weeks. Slow but steady, as seems to be the way it goes. The yoga/walking program is going well, although I've only made it to yoga 4 times a week instead of five.

DH and I are looking for a cottage for a week in July, hoping to get something on the ocean. Looking forward, hopefully, to a week of sun and swimming, lolling on the sand and reading.

WSW, I'm finding the guided meditation helpful for falling asleep as well as having my head on straight. I've been waking up early lately too, though. Maybe it's a seasonal thing.

Hope all is well with all lies -- let's make this a good one!

arabella-congrats on the pound down, and for the total!!
the idea of a cottage for a week by the ocean sounds so relaxing and delightful. that would be my idea of a wonderful vacation.

have been steadier and more consistent with food program and am pleased about that. i wish i could say it is not feeling very difficult to accomplish, but just happy that i am doing what needs to be done. had a nice day yesterday visiting with friends who brought over their delightful 2 and 4 year old children. it really was fun. well, off to do a couple errands. take care, dear royals, one and all.

WSW, 'tis ever thus -- harder to get established but super-easy to slide off-track.

We're going to put in our annuals today. We always seem to be late doing the switch-over from spring flowers. Kind of a minimal plan in mind, just a splash of color. What really needs to be done involves lots of digging. Noooooot going to happen today.

Last peek at the scale had me the same as last week. Hoping for a whoosh for tomorrow, though. Walking and yoga all good but was perhaps just a little lax food-wise?

Hope all are having a lovely Sunday!

so true, arabella. ah well.

hope putting in your annuals went well. though i have no garden of my own, i love fresh flowers. i think i would have fresh flowers in my apartment every day, if possible.

very wierd weather today-heavy rain immediately followed by sunshine, and happened several times today. at one point this afternoon, got stuck in a tea shop during one huge downpour so couldn't really complain too much.

still hanging on food plan-wise by one dainty fingernail, but at least hanging on. well, a good evening to all, in and around palace.
