365 Days of Happiness (187/365)

The freezer is packed with a variety of frozen ‘steamable’ vegetable options.  I figured I could mi them with my ground chicken or ground turkey for some easy (and tasty) lunches.   My freezer may be full of vegetables, but my mind is full of coconut cake. 🙁


This morning, I did my neighborhood walk again.  Whew – it got ridiculously HOT very early this week, but – a walk before 10am in Florida is still the best way to go, so — off I went.  I listened to another podcast today and it was about binge eating (again).  This time the interviewee was a woman named Cookie and the conversation was about expecting slip-ups.  In fact, running down this weight-loss journey, thinking their won’t BE any slip-ups is a baddddd way to go.

The golden nugget that stuck with me today goes something like this…… Learning to manage slip-ups and moving yourself forward IS the only way you will be successful in maintenance.  Hmm.  Sunshine and rainbows.  I feel better about this week already.

Good night coconut cake.  Ya didn’t get me today!!!!

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
