BuffyBear's Journal, 20 March 2013

Well that feels much better!

Day 1 was about 5 carbs over - not bad considering I had forgotten about the challenge starting yesterday and not having the right food ready. Did well eating out last night as well.

This morning I boiled some eggs, packed a salad, etc. Goal will be under 30 and keeping those calories down, down, down.

So today is the first day of spring? At least it is not snowing here but winter clothing still required!

Rocky - Oh I love my flip-flops too. DH has a fit because I like to have a color to go with every outfit. Come on spring!

Bren - You are always so encouraging - about both weight loss and the weather!

Sandy - Don't you just wish motivation came in a pill? Then we wouldn't have to keep repeating Day 1 over and over. Hope you are having a good day as well!

Day one of anything is tough! Today is my day one of clean the ice cream out of my system! Grrr LOL! You can do it, glad you hugged your puppy in the storm. Darn its winter again, we shall warm up soon!

Great job, Buffy!!! For not having anything planned out, you did fabulous. I know that blue line will be sinking fast in the next couple of weeks. They are calling for an "unusual, late season, winter weather event" here tomorrow and Friday, then again Sunday into Monday. The first one is supposed to give us 2-5" of snow. In Missouri, that is very unusual, although I have seen snow as late as April 7th. We shall see...at least the robins and red wing blackbirds have returned...that is a true sign that spring is ready to bust out all over! Have a great and successful rest of your week! HUGS!

Lizzy - Oh, that ice cream is a killer isn't it? And yes, my pooch is very, very spoiled (probably just like yours). You stay warm too!.

Stef - You've got me feeling sorry for the poor birds! Guess if we can make it through these last storms we'll have a better appreciate for spring!

So it is carbs, then, not net carbs. Wow. Great job, Buffy. I'm watching to see how it's done. You ARE an inspiration.

5 carbs is nothing! You did great! Keep up the good work.

Buffy, the weekend forecast for us here in Missouri has the potential for 12+ inches of snow...poor birdies and froggies are going to freeze their little tail feathers and tushies off!

If it is any consolation what-so-ever...it is really cold in Wisconsin yet too. Good job on the re-start & the great attitude that shines through too...sexy, slim capris are in your future!

Buffy.....where are you? Had to find you on page 2 again. Hope you're doing fine and not working too hard during those l-o-n-g days at work. Bet you're looking forward to the weekend!
