HCB's Journal, 15 October 2012

The brisk lake walk yesterday really helped move things along physically and mentally. Since I reduced fat to 30g or less per day, moved some meal times around, and kept the protein to 100g or above each day, I have seen better results. I am on track to make my goal of losing six pounds per month!

Although I dread the approaching cold weather and darkness, Autumn here can be glorious! This is a photo of two Maple trees in our front yard from last year - they are identical this year!


Still grateful for:

- The people I love who love me back!
- 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

What a beautiful yard you have. Thanks for sharing the picture. Glad the walk helped with your cravings. Here I was worried about you when I should have been worried about me - LOL.

I love the autumn colors. Our leaves are really starting to fall this week. They won't last much longer, I'm afraid. It's been a very cool and wet October here so far. Good to see you are still getting results - keep up the good work!

HCB, you have a sweet ass yard. I bet you are the envy of everyone else at Lowe's and Home Depot. I really need to take your advice about keeping the fat down and upping the protein. Normally I do pretty well on carbs but I do admit I let those fat grams get out of control. Today I did weight training a little bit at the gym, in addition to cardio and abs - just a few reps with hand weights, but it was more than I have been doing. Feeling a little crazy today, as you can probably tell from my lengthy, super pissed off journal. I never see you get your feathers ruffled! Jealous!

Beautiful yard! Very colourful trees. Thank-you for sharing. Also, that's for sharing your plan of eating less fat and more protein. Keep us in the loop to let us know if this is working and how you feel plus your energy levels.
