Okay . . . here we are . . . a new start for a new season.

Is SUMMER easier or harder for you when it comes to staying on track?

Personally, I do not like the heat, humidity, and bugs that come with this season and definitely cannot count it among my favourite times of year. I do know, I'm in the minority, though.

Hi all back from Texas and getting settled back in. Ready to start back on eating right. Even though I didn't do to bad in Texas except for having wine which is always my down fall. Week ends especially are hard for me. I guess they are for everyone. Well anyway I'm going to try. Its a new week.

Hi ladies

The other thread was not locked so I posted over there. So I am copying my post for over here. Thanks Toni.

It was a crazy week and I did not get here as much as I wanted. My DD put hardwood throughout her house and they finished on Wed night. I started cleaning Thursday night until 10, Friday night until 11, and back at 9:00 on Sat and I was mopping myself out the door on Sat at 10 minutes to 5 when the honored guest arrived for her baby shower. Whew! I was exhausted. I sat my big arse on a raft all day yesterday and did't even care if it was raining or cloudy. Now I won't know what to do with myself.

Tech, I was at 180.5 this morning. I was surprised. Eating was not good all week with running to my DD's as soon as I got home. I guess I worked it off. I got up and made it to the gym this morning at 5:00 am so I can get back on track and move that scale.

Bob, you crack me up with all your movies. I never have time to sit and watch a movie. Plus don't think I could sit that long.

Ellen, so glad you had a nice visit with your sister. Sorry to hear about Tom's choleterol. But like you say, lower fat eating will benefit you both.

Toni, glad you are back and had a nice time. Wine is my downfall too, especially this time of year. I enjoy sitting on the patio with a glass, or two. But I just read that one to 2 glasses of wine, beer or boozed helps you against heart attacks 30%. So i am doing something good, right?

Meowee, sorry to hear you are not getting any better. I hope they can do somethinhg for you soon. I perfer summer. I love the heat, it can't be too hot for me. I do hate bugs though.

ATS, Two years to leave your bone marrow! Wow that is scarry. Good luck with all that. And good luck with that career change. I need one of those too, but I want it to be retirement.

Guess I had better get started on this bid for Thursday. Lots of paperwork to complete. Have a great day.

Darn I went to lunch with a friend today at a new restaurant and had plans to eat a nice chef's salad and ordered something bad anyway. I'm so disappointed in myself. I'm trying not to let it color the rest of my day and get back on eating good. Tonight I'm going to have another salad with chicken breast on it.

Solly- You're right everything in moderation. I just read an article on Sparks.com that said one glass at wine in the evening is just fine. Hope you're staying cool and not working to hard.

Meowee- Hope you're feeling better.


Well with the heat index here today its 108. Drink lots of water.

Hi Ladies,

Just a quickie, jsut finished another bid and working on calls on another. It is never ending. Guess I should be happy I have a job and staying busy.
I will be off tomorrow. YIPEE! I think DH and I are going to get massages but no other plans.

Toni, good to see you are back on plan. Good job not letting one bad lunch mess things up.

Tech, congrats to Shelley. I know you both are relieved. Still at 180-181. How about you?

Ellen:

Bob,

Got to run. Have a great Friday and weekend. Talk to you Monday.

Got my computer fixed Friday. The week end has been pretty good. It could have been better. We're grilling pork steaks tonight. Other than that things are pretty slow.

We went out after church tonight for dinner with a group of folks...bad move! I did not have my meds with me, so that was my first mistake. It was a Mexican restaurant...the chips were my second. It was all down hill from there. My blood sugar is terrible, and I feel stuffed. I MUST get back on the straight and narrow!

Life is crazy. How I wish it would settle down and I could relax. This week is a big 25th anniversary party for friends, and I am making the cake.

It is HOT here, and I have been in the pool every day. No way I can walk in the heat! Its been into the 90s by 9 am ....

Time for bed....

Well have to rethink how I ate this past week. I can't imagine why I only lost 1/2 lb. Think I'll get back to weighing in on Wed. I did have ice cream last week. I'm so discouraged.
