(note: snow clothing optional!)We have been pushing for two weeks, preparing for Christmas, cleaning up Christmas, etc. I know I am physically and emotionally warn out. It is hard to want to eat right and exercise. I need to stop, just say â€œNo!â€ to any more commitments and sleep and sleep. Then I will have a better attitude and want to work harder at changing my lifestyle. Anybody with me?Here you go! A Selfie for the new year with my granddaughter.is ready for Spring!Is it spring yet?Had a thought today...I have always considered myself undisciplined (mainly I believe because of listening to stereotypes of overweight people). But I have over a 100 day streak of logging food and drink, drinking 8 cups of water and exercising. Does that sound like an undisciplined, lazy person?!Sometimes you grow weary of the nutty people!ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚Feels good to be finally getting back into a rhythm after the holidays!Anybody else need to laugh? Anybody remember this oldie?Yep!Anybody need a laugh?Tough day here! But I still drank my 8 cups of water and managed to talk myself into 15 min. on bike. So tomorrow will be better!

My weight has remained static for so long and I am wondering what is going on!?? But God is saying, â€œIt is just a new starting place-move on.â€ And so, move on I shall. I am lowering my calories by 100 and keeping on with all the other good things I have been doing. The scale has got to move sometime!May be cold outside, but I am dancing inside!Long but good day! Look who was waiting for me!Football play-off games, game night and company do not help my eating plan! Oh well, tomorrow is another day ScarletðŸ™‚!A tough day yesterday for exercise with my hip arthritis. But a little prayer and I got encouraged to find some different, less painful ways to exercise. I was able to do 10 min. with my desk bike by putting an immobilizer beside my hip. And I was able to do 5 sit-to-stands. Yea!!
