Sherree S.'s Profile
Happy Hanukkah to all my Jewish friends! Thanks for the sweet encouragements sent today, Sara, Pat, Lamoine, & Deborah.
This is my granddaughter, Olivia. She is 9 and moving across the country during Christmas break. New school starting in January. Sending her all my good vibes.
I have a great support system. I have all of you here on Daily Challenge, my friends at Weight Watchers, and my friends at church. Not to mention my family. Guess I got this support thing covered.
I have to go to a Holiday party tonight. I just want to stay home, but I rarely get to see these friends so I'll buck up and go. I have to weigh in tomorrow, so I'm trying to think of things to do besides graze at the food table.
The weather is supposed to take a nasty turn, so perhaps I won't be making it to tomorrow's meeting anyway. If I'm iced in here, I could potentially make cookies. These are going to be a couple tricky weeks coming up here.
Enjoy your night!
I got a bunch of Monday love today. Thanks for all the encouragments, Sara, Deborah, Sally, Lamoine, Pat, Sheenie, Frank, & Nirmala. Sara and I are wrapping up our latest pact today.
I knew this before tackling the Better Weight program, but I was reminded of how much better I feel both physically and mentally when I follow a healthy regime. Go figure.
Today was a Maisie day. She is trying to talk now...as well as walk. I have several nativity sets on display. I showed her how they all had three main characters: Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus. I pointed them out in each creche scene. Then she picked up her goat puzzle piece and pointed to the only display that didn't have animals. She wanted me to put the goat with them and she didn't want me to remove the goat. Isn't she a genius? And to make things even more surreal, she has a new laugh that is quite similar to a cute goat. To put the icing on the cake, she is a Capricorn.
Enjoy your evening.
I'm super-stoked with all these encouragements today. Thanks from the bottom of my heart, Sara, Lamoine, Sally, Mary, Frank, Deborah, Cindy, Gaybrilla, Kaye, & Heather.
This probably doesn't count as healthy eating, but today we decorated these 6 gingerbread houses. Mine is second from the left on the table. It says, "PEACE" on the porch roof. I should have put pretzel supports for the porch, but I was done. We also made a bunch of different Christmas ornaments. This is my daughter's in-laws. I'm not used to being part of a family since most of my family passed on years ago. It's been almost 20 years. It's fun to be with them, but I still feel odd.
I have lots of healthy eating habits that I will stick with in perpetuity: !) I will track what I eat each day; 2) I'll eat fruit instead of sweets whenever possible; and 3) I will find healthier options for unhealthy cravings.
I had a mouse in the house last night. My cat catches the mice and brings them to me in bed. I'd rather skip the mouse in the bed routine, but that is why I sleep with the lights on and my hard-core slippers and robe on. I survived. Not so good for the mouse, though.
Enjoy your night!
Thanks a million for the encouragements, Sara, Lamoine, Gaybrilla, Sheenie, & Lauretta.
Maisie is working on standing and walking unassisted.
I've been using several of these tips to stay active for years. Once winter gets here, I need to up my game. I will keep it up by continuing to park far away from the entrance to buildings and using the stairs whenever possible and doing my best to get in 10,000 steps a day.
I haven't been up to doing any of that these past three days. I've been watching sappy Christmas movies for a couple days now. My mind might turn to mush, but it makes me feel like Christmas a little bit.
Enjoy your evening!
I sure do appreciate my encouragers today. Thanks so much for the boost, Sara, Robert, Karen, Lamoine, Deborah, Sally, & Nirmala.
One thing that motivates me to eat healthy is that when I eat right, my body doesn't hurt so bad. Another would be that when I keep up with my exercises, I can do more things with my granddaughter.
Since yesterday, I have had the stomach flu. I lost the whole day and most of today. Right now I feel so very much better. I had to cancel several things and now my calendar will be even more concentrated in the coming weeks.
Enjoy your evening!
I'm on early today. Maybe I'll make this a new habit. Maybe not. Stay tuned. I already have enough encouragements to push me through to challenge success. Thanks so much, Sara, Sally, Theresa, Lamoine & Karen.
Okay, let's just say that I said to myself, "Well, self, you can't start your diet today because you have all this food sitting around that you have to eat up. It would be a sin to let it go to waste."
Instead, I could say to myself, "Self, you made some unwise choices on your food-buying outing. Let's see what we can do to get those sugary foods out of the house. Some of it I can give to my daughter and her family. Some of it, my daughter can bring to work. Some of it will just have to be thrown out."
Guess what? I have been asked to be Mrs. Claus at my daughter's school Christmas program. I'm beyond excited.
Have a grand day!
