More Small Changes ( Week two)

So much for being the BIGGEST LOSER  but my process has been slow and steady and I am OK with that.  I am down four pounds total in two weeks.  YAY ME!

Last week my  focus  was on having healthier choices on hand for consumption and I’m pretty proud of myself.  Especially considering there has been a German chocolate in my refrigerator since Saturday.  Now I am not going to lie.  I did have a small piece ( a hefty sliver)  this past weekend but nothing since. I’m surprised BUT some of those cravings have subsided.

My HUGE bowl of ice cream, has been replaced with a smaller serving fat-free frozen yogurt and not every night.

Perhaps it’s the water, or maybe I just don’t want to sabotage myself.  Either way, so far I’m winning.

I am at  the low end of  a ( a ten lb block) that has been haunting me for almost a year. Last year I broke through by a few pounds but then my father passed away.  So bottom line is I have been bouncing back and forth ever since.  it would be REALLY COOL to see the break through later on this week too.

Oh, this week is going to be a short week, because I want to start weighing in on the 1st of every month, at least for the foreseeable future.  I still want to update every week BUT just to stay accountable with the behaviors.    I just want to get away from stepping on the scale every time I pee. Which IS a lot!   It’s kind of ridiculous if you think about it.  I think it will also help to  see the scale actually MOVE by more than a few lbs. 🙂

In April, I plan to get MOVING, first with walking  though it’s been awhile and I might have to do some crawling first.

So for now, TOODLES!

I hope everyone has a GREAT week.


Butterfly, Fly Away

I love music, and I mean all kinds of music. My taste varies wildly in genre and I crossed so many genre lines yesterday I am not even sure what time zone I am in  anymore.     Just kidding  but music is my GO TO when I’m feeling particularly melancholy and/or emotionally charged.

I’ll spare you MOST of the gory details that my FB friends had to endure yesterday when I mixed too much wine with my music obsession.

Anyway,  I ran across this beautiful father and daughter rendition of Butterfly Fly Away   ( and let’s say I needed to hear it)   Perhaps, some of you need to hear it too.  Besides, it’s just too lovely not to share.
