Sandy701's Journal, 26 December 2012

Walked 1.5 miles with the dogs in the sunny, blustery cold! Our high yesterday was in the 70's but today, we'll be lucky to hit 50. What a contrast!

With my walking back on schedule and my food getting back to more usual fare, I hope to feel more like my normal self soon. Hard to believe non-low-carb food can make me feel that bad, but it did. Yuck. Maybe this experience will make it easier for me to face 2013 with a fresh perspective on Maintenence.

Today will be a quiet day at home, with DH back at work. Tomorrow, I'll have a few errands out and about the town, along with a haircut.

Hey Sandy 50 sounds wonderful right now! It snowed again lastnight and what was slush outside is solid! Pretty cold out so I am jealous of your 50 degrees :) Makes it too slick here to get out and walk without risking a fall...heck I was worried when I took the recycle bin down and then the trash bin. They are both on wheels and I was very happy that I did not slide down pulling them on top of me..haha! DH is off here again today but running errands so a bit back to normal (momentarily) for me. I will be happy to get back to a regular schedule (that will really take place after the new year)!

You & me both need a fresh perspective! With a little of the old schedule back on track should help a lot. Kind of like, there is no place like home. I get my hair cut tonight.

I have the same experience - I call it a food hangover. I think I'm one cookie away from a diabetic coma. Hope you get your errands all done. I did my returns yesterday and it was like Black Friday all over again!

Bren, the errand-running was a bit chilly, but hoisting 2 30-pound bags of dog food around and 3 cartons of new window blinds kept me warm!!

Jaime that WOULD have been quite the "sledding" adventure!! I feel the same way about wanting to get back to a more normal schedule...everything seems easier then!

GG...this part of our journey is one of the most underrated, IMO. Staying focused when you're SO CLOSE is darned difficult!!! You'd think we'd be all focused on getting things "finished up," but for me, at least, it was just so easy to postpone and procrastinate. Here's to a focused 2013!!!

That's exactly it, Buffy....a food hangover! You are one courageous gal doing returns on the 26th! I was just out shopping on the 27th and it was more than busy enough for me, even then!

Hey Sandy - I'm back!!! And really looking forward to catching up! I've turned a corner and come out the other side of 'grieving'... and I am ready to make some life changes!!! Looking forward to more than reaching goals this year... I am turning a page to reaching... peace. joy. faithfulness. happiness ... in my little corner of the world. (No matter what the scale says) And I will do it for me. I will keep doing it for me. Finally. And you know what... I feel really good about where I am at. Sure, I might not like the extra weight that got me here. But I do like the clarity it has exposed in my thinking. Grief sent me for a loop. But I have come full circle, and am ready to take 2013 on by storm.
