lots of walking

Sunday, April 20, 2014

We took a walk to beach from The Fiancee's home -- beautiful day, long walk, and, ooops, left Sparky at home. About 3 + miles that I tracked manually. After dinner, Sparky and I took a walk and tracked that Sparkily.

I find Sparky highly motivating!

Happy Easter, all!

AAACK...

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

These last few pounds are really difficult. I'm not as stressed generally (ah. the blessing of knowing that I have a new business partner), but the adjustment period with him and the staff is, um, interesting (it's not about him. It's about the staff. Not enough tough love over the years). I've gotten out to walk a little more, as the weather has improved, but I'm only working one 4-hour shift a week at J#2, which means that I need to REALLY get out and walk more. Yes, I know that this means that there is "more time" to walk after work. But -- less time at J#2 means more time at J#1.

I just added "no beer" to my Start Page goals. I know that this sounds silly, but in the tradition of unrelenting accountability, I'm going to track it. Have I been tracking everything else? Um, no. Just my daily Start Page goals. No time even to check in.

We were invited to a passover seder last night, and I moderated my eating admirably. It was a lovely dinner. Our friend who hosted is is a catholic Buddhist, who started having passover when her daughters were young so she could explain to them how the catholic observations during this time period are related to Judaism. The plan had been for us to walk over to her home, but we ended up bringing so much to the meal that we had to drive. That was the only downside.

Apologies to my pals for not visiting you -- I think about you every day

    You know I know. Hang in there & the thing is that you already know what to do. We just need to make it part of repartition for life.

God bless & hugs!!

    Stick with it, those last few lbs will eventually disappear. And Happy Passover!

    I may have to work this weekend, and I'm not even mildly surprised, but I am VERY angry about it.

  What a nice invite!

I can't believe you can squeeze in beer and stay as little as you are!

    You're too close to give up now, stay focused. You're loved and supported.

  A Catholic Buddhist doing Passover. OK, that just about covers it! LOL Sounds awesome.

Yup, those last lbs. are a pistol, but you can do it!

HUGS!

  I've learned that I need to make "tracking time" a priority. If I don't, I'm the one who pays the price. Now to get everything else in line, there's the challenge!

Catching Up

Wednesday, April 09, 2014

Hey, Sparklers --

The bridal shower this past weekend was a hands-down success. The Bride and Her Mom were so happy and overwhelmed by The Love -- it was great.

I bought some clothes that fit on Sunday, and picked up my now-altered dress for the wedding.

I'm up 3 down 3 again -- working too much --

5 pounds from goal --
