crabby Kat's Journal, 23 October 2012

One pound from my goal! Crazy scale; yesterday I weighed in at 138.3, today at 136 (twice, I checked).. Of course, my ultimate goal is to become healthy, comfortable and happy with my body as it is.

In the tub today, I looked down at the loose skin on my tummy, upper arms, and the tops of my thighs. I decided not to be grossed out by it; it's a part of me, part of my journey through life. I poked it, folded it, laughed at it. As hard as I work to firm up my body, this badge I've earned through life experience will be with me, (short of surgery that I can't afford). I'll be proud of it as a measure of how far I've come.

Beau is being entertained by Nutty Buddy; a squirrel that's been coming onto our deck to eat the peanuts I've been putting out (leftovers from last year's baking); NB likes walnuts too. Beau gets so excited. My partner has been delighted with NB's visits, too, as have I.

Time to pack up the cookies I baked last night and head off to the gym for two 1-hour exercise classes.

I'm still excited by the fact that I'm soooooooo close to my goal weight! My gym pals loved the Pumpkin Chocolate chip cookies I took in. I was even able to give one to the guy that sits next to me at Pilots soccer games, and he didn't come to my class, just stopped to say hi to an old friend. I gave a container of them to the instructor to take to her kids, and what was left I took to the front desk at the gym so other employees could eat them. I don't need to have any more here! I did the hour Silver Sneakers class then an hour of Gentle Yoga; great morning. I got creative with lunch; mixed ground turkey breast with leftover canned pumpkin, egg substitute, bread crumbs, and Volcano seasoning. It made about 7 patties (1/4 cup each) and was totally yummy and filling; I was hungry enough to eat it all and an apple! Raining again. I just checked out two library books for my Kindle on the computer so I have something good to read; finished my last library book last night. I love reading all the time, but there's something special about sitting with a hot cup of tea and watching the rain pour outside and I'm all comfy inside.
