Work, Woman. Work!

Working like a dog on this house.  I did a lot of work yesterday and most of it doesn’t show.  Cleaning out the closets, cleaning out the freezer, laundry, cleaning the medicine cabinet.  More today.  I dread it but I ought to wash the walls and paint…

Weight is down to 199.5 this morning.  Talk about work!  Sheesh!  I’m battling for every ounce.  I was ready for the urges yesterday evening.  After dinner, which was a potroast with carrots, potatoes and onions, “baked” green tomatoes, and Sarah’s Clafoutis recipe, I started really “needing” something around 7:00.  Instead of eating, I went out to the pool and jogged for another half hour.  Kind of took the edge off and I was able to survive the evening.  Although I did have another serving of Sarah’s Clafoutis.  I made this one with canned tart cherries and some tree ripened peaches.  Topped it with a serving of low-fat whipped cream that weighed in at only 20 calories for 2 Tablespoons.  Kind of nice what all that air does to whipped cream.  You get a lot of bang for your buck.

So, I felt pretty good about yesterday.  Ate healthy, didn’t smoke and did 2 1/2 miles of jogging in the pool.  Doing my best to stay on track.

So far, today, I’ve had a cereal bar (120 calories).

Umm, the recipe sounds divine.

You are doing an amazing job. Trading healthy habits for the unhealthy ones is a double benefit. My hubby is quitting tomorrow–wish us both luck.

GREAT job Patty! I am so proud of you. You did not smoke for another day. It WILL get easier I promise! It took a few weeks for me to lose the chemicals out of my body enough to not crave them. It will take a bit longer for you to UNdo the smoking habit. You can do this!
The pot roast sounds yummy!
Keep up the good work Patty!
