Maritimer 3

April 7, 2014.

5 weeks until the wedding.

The last 2 months have been rough, and I regained 5 of the 11 lbs. I lost since Christmas. I am definitely still an emotional eater, and when I get stressed and over-tired, I over-eat. That's the bad news. The good news is that I didn't quit.

So with 5 weeks to go, and first dress fitting today, this is the plan:

- eat at the bottom of my SP range
- keep protein, fats and carbs in balance as per SP

Thanks for the comment on my Blog. It seems to have been a whirlwind month with the family in our basement. Our DGD is home schooled so I rarely see them but she sure stays up very late.
I just stay upstairs and every couple of days mostly time off for our son we all have dinner in the dining room. Sometimes they cook other times I cook. They eat out too much but without a kitchen that happens.

Do you have lots of snows still. We finally have grass showing through the thatch that I have not yet moved, it looks better daily.

Gail, Just stand tall with good posture !
Hope you are having good weather.. Has Spring arrived yet?
I think the last of the snow is gone from my place, the crocus are blooming and some of the daffodil blooms are open, with more to come as they are not even showing buds, yet. Keep on, keeping on.
Love and Hugs, Audra

"Above all else, do NOT quit! The universe always bows to persistence.
The empowering approach is to see your physical challenges as assets, because overcoming obstacles forces you to develop discipline, determination and character.
These traits will carry over to other areas of your life and make you a stronger person.
-Tom Venuto
