princess lardie 07-15-2009 07:54 AM

Thank you for the warm welcome, Tracy. :)

I didn't do so well yesterday. The day started out alright, but then I stopped to get dd something to get at a gas station, and the lady gave us an extra chicken and biscuit because they were fixing to toss them.... and of course I ate it! Then I had cheese sticks, a hot dog, and 3 pizza rolls. For dinner I had
1/2 of a ham sandwich with cheese and mayo, a handful of chips, 2 mini cheesecake bites, and a scoop of chocolate pudding.

Today will be better!

Drink 5 glasses of water.
Have eggs for breakfast.
Walk for 30 minutes

Hope you all have a great day!

did not kill my 23 year old you thinks she knows everything, I have turned her over to God, and that will keep me out of jail!! LOL LOL

Jazzy, love that FIDO, sure was glad you said what it meant cause I was lost at first. I am a hen not a chickie.

Well now today is day Five and I shall perservere. Blessings to you all.

I'm in. My goal for the week is to hit the gym at least 4 times.

And a tip. A weekly goal is great for a boost but as far as breaking bad habits I tend to go back to them at the end of the week. Try long term goals for those really nasty habits. I.E.- I lived on fast food before. Banned myself from it for all of April. Now I hardly ever want it!

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 02:07 PM.
