Everything went well for my dear husband (DH) at the surgery today. He has an appointment follow-up tomorrow morning,too. It means I get two rest days from the gym IN A ROW! I cannot recall the last time I rested two days in a row. I almost feel lazy! My 61st birthday is FRIDAY!!! We will be meeting friends at a Wine Cafe for snacking and then go to a Comedy Club! I am looking forward to it - but it will be another BIG carb day!

Happy New Week, Best Buddies:

I feel better today and just came back from the gym. Typically, I work out Tuesdays with my favorite trainer - but tomorrow I am staying with my husband while he has an outpatient surgery. I am slightly concerned because I believe he will go under full anesthesia for the procedure. He is very healthy, so all should be well.

The remnants of the "French Bread Debacle" are still around. I am amazed how much wheat bloats the system.

Happy May Day my Best Buddies!

I just came home from my workout - it was tough! I have a sinus headache...and possibly reacting to some white flour wheat I ate yesterday while at the winery with friends. I had my usual flax crackers and guacamole...but did have some French bread and cheese! Bloated my weight up like three pounds!

Greetings my Best Buddies!

I feel blessed with all the support from my Buddies - which is why I write my "Best Buddies" all the time. Today, I decided to log a modest loss because both the Idiot Boxes have shown consistently lower numbers over the past 10 days. I hope I can make my goal - there often are fluctuations up and down!
