HCB's Journal, 11 September 2012

Greetings, Buddies! I feel like I have been lagging along the past week. I did an "easy" exercise DVD this morning and was still tired at the end!

Today's food plan is all good - as long as I follow it well.

Feel free to give me a good swift kick in the gluteus maximus to help me get better motivated this week! My pancreatic cancer bicycle ride is THIS weekend, so I want to get with it!

Grateful for:

- The good health of my loved ones

- My FS Buddies who support and encourage me to continue
- "Butt-kicking" myself to a smaller size today
- My DH - who is my greatest "cheerleader"
- My Bengal cat companions named Bodhi and Ravi
- My work - which has meaning and worth to other human beings
- My connection to the Mother Earth and its entire splendor
- My physical health

Maybe your body is trying to tell you something - like no more pretzels! Just build back into your exercise routine slowly. You know you've got this!

It seems like such a paradox but I always feel better after a really heavy duty workout. It clears the mind, lifts the spirit and energizes the body. So consider you butt kicked - get out there and move :) It does a body good!!!

Lol, I had to laugh at the no more pretzels. My wife is a pretzel nut too. She used to lay in bed and eat about a whole bag a night. Luckily she is doing better now, hehe. Plus, we cant really get good ones here....

I miss pretzels so much - they are the best for the crunchy salt thing and easily found. I have switched to homemade Pita Chips using whole wheat pockets. All 6 pockets only need about a TBSP of EVOO and any spices you like. Bet you can find Pita bread Posterchild66 :)

@posterchild - YES! My husband loves his sourdough pretzel nuggets so last night we were watching TV and he was loudly munching away! And, then he steals MY snack of raw almonds, too! GRRRR...

@Evelyn - Thanks for the butt-kick! I need it this week, I think.

Mine just bought a huge bag of Ruffles, I guess it's to keep him company while he watches TV. Mind you, he drives all the way down to the beach to a specialty yogurt parlor for NONFAT frozen yogurt which precedes his nightly foraging. Got to love these lucky people who never gain. Just wish I were one of them.

LOL - it is like the folks who order "Diet" Coke with the cheeseburger and fries, right?

You've kicked butt before you can do it again. Think Nike: Just Do It !

Thanks for the extra "butt-kicks" tonight! Tomorrow morning I WILL hit it again...and the day after that, too!
