And so tonight we Blog!

I am feeling a little out of sorts.  I don’t think it’s the holiday, it’s some other stuff going on.  Makes my neck tense.

I lost another pound.  I think we’ve slowed to 1 pound every 60 days. I have eight and half pounds until I reach my last goal.  I set that goal last year and I thought it was the best I could hope for.  I am now rethinking this.  For Christmas I think I will go buy myself some new workout pants.  Mine were big when I bought them, now they are so long!

Having typed that paragraph I will now say that I  have been having a cookie splurge!  One of office-mates brought me a nice little container of treats that his wife had made. So good!  Small enough that I can eat them all if I want, but big enough that it will certainly put me over my daily caloric goal.  And there is fudge.

I think I am going to send a secret into PostSecret.  If I do, and it goes up, I’ll tell you.

I was working out the other day and Daisy points at my chest and says, “Boy, you sure are losing it up there!”
My other Daisy’ism of the week occurred yesterday when she said “I think all this working out is making your hips get bigger!”  The owner of the gym was standing there and audibly gasped.  It made me laugh.  Daisy is a trip.

I can not find Silver ribbon except in those stupid four color packs!  I only want Silver.  I will find Silver or there will be no presents for anyone this year!

Happy night before Christmas Eve to you all.

  1. Sorry to hear something is making you feel out of sorts.  I hate when tension attacks the body like that.  I hope it all works out soon.Man, I am so impressed with you and sticking with it.  Good for you!I had to laugh at Daisy’s observations of your body.  You are a good sport!  I understand it though.  Considering my size, I am not well endowed up there.  When I lose weight that is the first place it starts going from and it makes me mad and it does make the areas south of there look bigger.  For me it is my waist.  A friend sent over a plate of cookies.  We had a field day with it.  They were so good.  I have to say I have had amazing will power with what I have baked.  I think the most tempting was the Vanilla Shortbread.  That was actually the “healthiest” in that it used canola oil in place of a lot of butter and one would think that wouldn’t work out so well but it was pretty good.    I hope you have a restful night and a peaceful day!

  2. I hope you can get to feeling better…. it’s a drag to be feeling low on the Holidays. Hahaha… the fact that you are losing weight is terrific, although I think you’re pretty terrific the way you iz.Happy Christmas!

  3. @carolinamuscle – Thank you, and just so there is no confusion, I am even hotter in person! @skanickadee – Daisy is a trip!  It took me a while to get into the groove of her patterns so now I can just roll with her.  There is not a whole lot of “Sweet little old lady” about Daisy!  I enjoy hearing her stories though, and we make a good team on the short drive and while we’re working out.  MMM, Vanilla Shortbread!  Everything you have been baking just sounds so good!   I would allow myself two of every one of your cookies.  Then the 2nd day make three cookies total! I hope Craig is able to get some rest and recovery this long weekend.

  4. Good karma is coming your way because of your relationship with Daisy!  As for Craig – he is off until January 3rd!!!!  University is closed!

  5. @skanickadee – There is a huge benefit for me as well.  She depends on me, so I workout even when I don’t want to. 🙂

  6. Daisy is funny. I think it’s true for everyone the boobs are always the first thing to go…maybe that’s why your hips look bigger? LOL! Good you are keeping your sense of humor!!I hope you get feeling better and have a very merry Christmas!

  7. daisy is a hoot I could use a daisy in my world. Merry Christmas and happy new year. I think I’ll go bake some cookies” for the grand kids” I’m getting the Wii plus out after Christmas.

  8. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  9. @morningwind – Thank you very much!
