Good morning to everyone!
Today is weigh-in day for me, and quite honestly, I was not expecting a good report. Weekends are a real challenge for me – I think because I’m out of the routine. It’s easy for me to plan my meals during the week (especially when DH is traveling!) but the weekends are harder. However, I was pleasantly surprised to read the scale and see that I had lost another 1.1 pounds for a total loss in two weeks of 2.3 pounds. It’s not much, but it’s a start. I’m going to work on losing 2 more pounds (minimum) before Thanksgiving.
I may have already mentioned this but it;’s my turn to have the family here for Thanksgiving. So I will be cooking for 21 people. My plan is to have lots of fresh veggies and fat free dressing to nibble on as I cook and to eat with my meal. And I’m going to have as many healthy dishes as I can. But there are several traditional dishes that I have to cook: my Sausage Cornbread dressing, English Pea Casserole and Sweet Potato Casserole. But I’l l have fresh steamed green beans, and fresh squash to help balance out the meal. Desserts: who knows. I’l l probabvly purchase a sugar free apple pie and make a pumpkin pie. Anyway, I’ve got time to finalize m plans – but putting it down here has helped organize my plans.
Now I need to get motivated to get on the treadmill and ab stretcher. At 4AM in the morning, it not exactly the girst think on m mind.
Havre as great week everyone and may God richly bless each of you!
