some more friday stuff

When people start giving you grief about your clothes being too big… it’s really awesome! My jeans are sliding around on me today.
I can’t wait to find out what it’s like to sit down without having my gut in my lap.
It also feels great to be able to have the stamina to work all day and then actually function AFTER work until midnight.
I missed my decompression time – which is different from depression time – but I’m glad to know that I can do things.
Walking from the parking lot to the theatre last night… my grandmother was walking faster than me. I’ve got some catching up to do.
She’s pretty much always eaten healthy, though. Her father was a doctor.
Fiddler on the Roof is such a dark show. I mean… there’s the happy “tradition” aspect… but the whole pogrom thing and the spooky dream. I forgot about that.
I really enjoyed going to the theatre though. I so greatly enjoy live theatre. Nothing beats it.
The Tevye was stellar. The Golde was weak. I wanted to help her sing. Never a good sign. But it was opening night.

Weigh in is tomorrow. I’m hoping to hit my 5% goal – just need .4 pounds to get there. I think I’m down a pound, unless something salty happens between today and tomorrow. I’m planning corn on the cob for dinner. I don’t know what else… but I bought some beautiful corn. Oh… and I have a perfectly ripened avocado that’s just begging to be partnered with a tomato and a cucumber in a nice lime vinaigrette.
I’m having to remember to do proteins because the veggie pickin’s are so pleasant right now.
I’m going to plan a shopping trip at one of the big, diverse Farmer’s Markets in the city. Hate to have to go to the city for produce when the gardens up here are so plentiful… but there are some things you just can’t get and a girl can only eat so many tomatoes a week (I think I’ve literally eaten a dozen tomatoes in the past week).
I added chicken to my caprese salad for today… just a little grilled chicken… to amp up the protein.
I had scrambled eggs for breakfast with the ever present tomato and basil and a little sprinkle of parm cheese. Really nice.
I’m so draggy today…

I haven’t done good with exercise this week. Every other day instead of every day. I’ll do better next week. I’m still way heavier than I was when I exercised before. It’s hard… and it’s too hot to do anything outdoors other than swim. And I’m too fat to put myself on display at any of the local swimming holes.

Today is day 49 of Weight Watchers. LOOOOVE that I’ve stayed on track and on plan this whole time without any cravings. Truly, you can eat anything on WW, as long as you’re cautious of the portion sizes.

You are doing fabulous on WW and I am hoping you hit your 5% today! I am sorry about your bitty kitty being gone. I am glad however that it didn't throw you into stress eating. It cracks me up reading when you write about "beautifull corn"You sound like Rachael Ray!! Keep it up your doing so great!!

You've gone that far and there's no stopping now, the momentum is there already and all you have to do is stick with the plan and stay focus. I know we all want to be healthy and losing weight is just the beginning.
