Chapter 14, Day 22

Monday, April 07, 2014

Family dinner was really nice. Even better: I stayed within my calorie range. Even the meatballs that I made using a binder of some egg, ground up rice krispies, and a little goat cheese (for son on a gluten free, corn free diet) were a hit. Rice pasta was interesting and seemed good, but it was very starchy and it took at least twice as long to cook. DS3 appreciated my efforts). I was so exhausted from my cold by the time that our family left.

DAY'S POSITIVES
I am ready for Monday, and welcome its quietness and usual structure
So happy I finished yesterday within calorie range, even with eating a couple of treat I should not have.

DAY'S PLANS
Stay the course: Food Plan and a minimum of 10 minutes of exercise.

Wishing you a healthy, fit, productive day!

Chapter 14, Day 22

Sunday, April 06, 2014

Another good day yesterday with Food Plan. I rested most of the day, nurturing my body from the recent cold that's invaded it, but I did get 15 minutes of walking in with Molly, our dog.

Today will be busy for me; BIL is in from NC. I'll entertain MIL, while DH and his brother watch the baseball game. I'm making some hearty soup for the boys. Later DS3 and GF will come and have dinner with us. It's a complicated spaghetti dinner: I'm having spaghetti squash instead of macaroni, DS3 is having rice pasta and specially made meatballs because he is on a gluten and corn free diet, and the rest will have whole wheat pasta and regular meatballs. Geez louise.

Talked to my brother and his wife yesterday. Looks like the family reunion is still on. Back on the planning committee for the present.

Temperatures should be nice. I would like to get out for a morning walk to sorta re-fuel and re-focus.

DAY'S POSITIVES
Sun is shining.
Stayed the course yesterday with Plan
Spring weather is on the way!

DAY'S PLANS
Healthy food plan in place for guests and me. Control over food events is a good thing.
Cook, cook, cook.
Walk.
Take MIL to make a return and to the library while the boys watch the game.

Wishing you a relaxing, healthy, fit Sunday!

Chapter 14, Day 21

Saturday, April 05, 2014

Yesterday was a good day for me. Despite an oncoming cold, I made myself exercise. And I stuck to my Food Plan even while faced with a food event. I may have another food event tonight, if our contractcor is done by the time DH's family goes to dinner.

Today, I feel worse from my cold. I'll try and get rest today, as tomorrow I host a small family dinner.

DAY'S POSITIVES
Had a healthy and fit day yesterday, despite the food challenge of pizza, wings, and homemade cookies.
Quiet day...need it, too.

DAY'S PLANS
Stay the course: Food Plan + 10 minutes of exercise minimum

Wishing you all a terrific, healthy and fit day!

Chapter 14 - Day 20

Friday, April 04, 2014

DAY 20?

Ahem. What in the heck happened to Days 13-19, I ask?




Copy this: Return to Health and Fitness. IMMEDIATELY!


Time for a new look..... Going green for Spring!

DAY'S POSITIVES
Took stock last night; resisted late night snacking. It was hard, but I was determined to rise above the urges. My new "large-ness" provided much motivation.

Weather is suitable for some outdoor walking. Client work is calm. Grand daughter is away on vacation. No excuses.

Crocuses have buds on them and will bloom this week!

DAY'S PLANS
Mandate: health and fitness as highest priority (about time).

Client work: some

Do you need to re-commit to your health and fitness plan? No? Good for you! If that wasn't your answer, let's re-focus on health and fitness today!

"Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.” (Edward Stanley)

    Yes, the budding and sunshiney days are much more tempting for outdoor walks than the days we had been having! Good luck with your resolve emoticon

    Since our weather started being warmer I have not had the urges to eat like I was, it was absolutely terrible this winter. Doing much better with the exercise and getting in my water. You and I know we can do this, but it is up to us, so let's give it our all. Have a fab Friday.

Hugs,
Shirl

Chapter 14, Day 13

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Fell asleep on the couch for 5 hrs in the early evening. My sleep pattern is a mess. Since I have client work to do and my own tax records to organize for the tax accountant appt on Friday, I can put this time to good use before the day's busyness begins at 5;15a when I leave the house for cat care.

DAY'S POSITIVES
Snow is mostly all melted; spring bulbs are sprouting....see daffodils, crocuses, and tulips coming up.
Library had a new book available for something that captured my interest on health and fitness.

DAY'S PLANS
Stay the course with Food Plan
Exercise at least 10 minutes
Client work

Wishing us all a healthy and fit day!

    Ah yes, the long nap. Sometimes I do that, too. It can certainly wreak havoc on my " official night sleep"
How nice that you can see the sprouting bulbs! We still have too much snow pack, but I know that they are down there, doing all that they can. emoticon

    Thank goodness almost no more snow, you must be happy too see your flowers.
Just loved your last quote, that is true, that is how it is done, I should copy this one. emoticon

    Have a beautiful day! It's a chilly one here, but we have sun and clear, blue sky. Tomorrow we should be up in the 40's instead of the 20's and may see 50 on Sunday, oh that would be such a blessing.

Hugs,
Shirl
