Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!
You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
TERRIFIC TUESDAY !!!!!!
Okay -- yesterday was a good day .. Got my second wind after a quiet weekend, and I went out and spent alot of money .. lol lol ... It was a day that the charge card should not have been connected to me .. lol lol .. No .. not really ..
I'm not really happy with my nails .. they were VERY short handed, and misunderstood me .. I like the color, but they gave me a gel manicure, and I wanted to try and go back to the acrylic nails, my nails are very thin, and weak (don't worry .. that's how they started years ago when I started doing this) .. He did a beautiful job, and I will be able to handle any "mishaps" but they feel weird .. lol
These have to make it to Saturday but not sure .. I like the color .. it's a mood color, rust .. (your hand temperature gauges the shade.. and it's fun to play with) but my nails are very thin .. so they feel funny ... the poor staff was very overwhelmed .. and maybe this will work .. ?? who knows .. it just feels weird .. So hoping they make it till after Saturday .. I've been invited to puppy club for their year end banquet dinner by one of my friends .. :) and I accepted... :) Looking forward to it !!!
Well --- I set my basic guidelines for my processed sugar problem .. and I think I can live with them .. I can't cut out 100% ..that would be like stepping off a cliff ... total lack of control, and tumbling down to the gully .. so as per my journal ...
"my goal right now is to take 1 day at a time" ... "if I reduce by 50% I can consider it an improvement" .. so for now that is my goal ... If I go to the extreme and try and cut it out completely, I am only setting myself up for disaster, and failure .. I live in a home where I could walk into a room or 2 and just breath and go into a sugar high .. My hubby enjoys his junkfood, and candy .. I will have to build up my willpower again ... done it before can done it again !!!!! lol lol lol lol
I made it through yesterday without (as you can see ...) I'm proud of myself .. The hardest part was not having my normal gummibears before bed .. Some habits are VERY hard to break .. but I did it !!!! I didn't have any ... so made my first day a success !!!!!
I am working on creating the same ruling as my ice cream .. the only time I break my ice cream rule, is with mom .. she so enjoys "sharing" a mini drumstick with me, and if I go over there on a weekday .. well .. I could fuss, but is it worth it .. all it does is make both of us feel bad .. because she remembers that I'm trying to behave, (until next time when she asks again) ... Well -- that's is my ultimate goal .. to do the processed sugars the same way .. just give myself a small window .. so I can still enjoy them, but just in limited portions .. I do good with my ice cream; sometimes I have to remind myself that it's a weekend and I can have ice cream .. lol .. I want to get the same with with my candy .. and I will ..
My morning errands consisted of (after my nails) restocking my suppliments, stopping at Michaels for some paper .. watercolor paper, and tracing paper .. and I bought myself a couple new stamp pads ... and then home .. Once I got home, I started getting tired, and bored .. so the struggle began .. I got home and hubby had lunch ready .. ohhh the house smelled so goood .... he was making brat patties .. and I had 2 ... with potato chips ..
I worked on my pictures a bit, and put my last couple days worth of shopping away, and came downstairs, and played some golf, and goofy golf, and walked, and tried everything in my power to keep myself away from being totally bored .. but let you know .. it was hard .... I've got projects set up .. I just haven't had the oomph to play with them .. but one of these days .. I think I'm to the point that I don't know what I want to do .. I have a couple of playtime projects going in my head, and I'm done with my cards up to April .. so I have some "quiet time" without pressure .. and that's when my brain goes nuts, and my hands go idle .. lol lol ... Such problems !!!!! lol
I'm happy that I finished the day with over 11,000 steps ... and proud of myself .. my weekend and snowstorm slump is over for now .. :)
Today we're heading downtown .. for olfarts day, and olfarts buffet ... and a bigggggg salad to start !!! WOOHOO !!!! and I'll get my steps !!! WOOHOO !!!!!! I told hubby I wanted to play a bit, that creates walking, and that creates steps !!! WOOHOO MEEEE !!!!!!!
So -- thank you for listening to my thinking blabble again !!!! Gotta get myself going here !!!! Talk later, and have a TERRIFIC TUESDAY !!!!!!!!!
