Greetings Buddies!

Almost to the mid-week! I have a two day training at the end of this week and then I fly to Boston to attend a Conference!

I have a bunch of details to attend to before I can leave my office; and leave town.

Fortunately, I can still exercise and try to log most of my food while I am away from home. The 30 Day Challenge ends October 14th and I am on track to make it into the drawing for the prize money. Fingers crossed!

We finally got the electrician to our house and he installed a ceiling fan and bathroom ventilation fan! We had two other guys lined up who ended up not seemed like it was way more complicated than necessary!

So many FS people have written about feeling discouraged recently that I chose a new word of the week!

Ya gotta just stick with it every day and shoot for good health!

The word of the week is

I am dedicated, determined, and diligent.

Greetings Buddies:

Wow, what a weekend! It seemed I just worked hard cleaning house, rearranging things, moving some furniture to vacuum, etc.

Then, I did a huge grocery trip to buy foods to pre-cook and freeze. My husband's sister and her spouse are coming in 10 days to visit us from New York.

The house is in good shape anyway but I wanted to get all the "company" laundry ready, and cook some Italian tomato sauce so I can just defrost and simmer when they are here instead of being stuck in the kitchen!

Workouts are going well - the 30 Day Challenge ends in October 14 and I WILL end up with enough points to enter the drawing for the money prize. My trainer said it looks like some people have bailed, so there will be fewer people in the drawing!

And, I finally got some Ezekial 4:9 Sesame whole grain bread to try out. I want to see if I can have a slice from time to time without it setting off the carb monster!

The word of the week is

I am dedicated, determined, and diligent.

Greetings my Buddies!

Things are a lot smoother the last few days! We just finished several glorious, sunshine filled warm days here in the North Country and now...about 50 degrees with cloudy and windy conditions. Looking like Fall is here!

I have been staying with my 30 Day Challenge by logging food, sleeping enough, drinking water, meeting my protein goals and exercising! I finally got over my cravings for carbs...I did have some bread over the weekend but logged it all and got of rid it pretty quickly!

That Italian bread is like CRACK, folks. White flour, yeast and all carbs! Yikes, I have to run from that stuff!

Fortunately, my challenge nutrition goal is about keeping the protein grams up over 130 per day, and I am rocking that goal! In fact, eating more protein makes workouts more productive because I have tons of energy, and it seems to make walking away from the extra carbs easier, too.

I recently have read a few journals where people are really "mean" to themselves and seem to expect perfectionism daily. Give yourselves a break - we are human and doing the best we can. Be accountable and honest with yourself but we do not need to beat ourselves up.

So the word of the week is forgiveness.

The word of the week is

I am dedicated, determined, and diligent.
