    It's time for a (just past) mid-week check-in. Are you doing everything YOU can to meet your daughter's-wedding dress-size goals? Or, are you spending all your time thinking about animal nutrition and leaving YOUR nutrition to the reptilian part of your brain?

    Thursday morning and I can say 'YES!" (Make that everything to meet MY goals-- I don't have a daughter or a pressing need for a new dress). I've started every day this week with a green smoothie for breakfast. I've stuck to three meals a day. Stuck to my meal plan. And, I've had only had one (1) unintended eating episode this week!
    If I keep it up through Friday I'm sure to lose a pound (1) this week ..... or, stay the same ...... S**** this is hard!

    Did that rain ever get to you? I spent all weekend trying to get it to go, but it just seemed to stick around.

    It was a tough week last week. I didn't record a loss of weight. I did not follow my plan. I was thoroughly miserable with myself.

    Three days off was a welcome relief. I did nothing in particular. I read. I walked in the rain. I even took pictures and posted them for you Sue! I realized I was so sick of winter that I was going to hasten Spring and got my farm ready to plant. Then I noticed snow is in the forecast for Thursday and Friday. Oh, well!

    It's a new week. A new to slightly used attitude. emoticon

    You leave me no choice. I'm sending the all powerful rain to end your blizzards and end the threat of your snowman army ..... and get you back to the gym, and fitness class.

    We have lots to spare. Do you have any idea what 165 inches of rain looks like?

    DEAL !! Today we got emoticon 15"s. It was almost a blizzard, but the wind didn't stay at 35MPH or higher for 3 hrs. It was gusting to 50MPH. It's so rare that they do this,, it's MAINE and it DOES Snow here,, often,,,, Portland is a mess,,, many of the streets are from old Indian paths,, they twist and turn and are small and one way. Driving there in the winter (grrr usually 3 to 5 times a month) you have to pull your car over as much as you can in order for another one to pass. SO YES let's STOCK UP And GET Brian ! emoticon emoticon on HIS PARADE !
