Midweek update and more…

First and foremost……Candy for yesterday…drum roll please….NONE!!! Not a lick, not a touch, nothing. YEAH!!! And for our date night out last night, I ate 2 pieces of cheese pizza and 3 chicken wings and 2 huge glasses of ice-water. So for the day it was oatmeal and fresh fruit, a cup of tea and my supper. I call yesterday a huge success!! Day one down, day two is here.

A date out with my mama was wonderful. We had a great time and didn’t stop talking and laughing and just enjoying our time together until we got home at 10 and you know what, we set another date day for next Tuesday. YEAH!!! Loving it, loving my mama.

I was suppose to go and exercise this morning but the roads are pure ice and now it’s snowing on them so I didn’t go. I will workout during nap this afternoon. And then tomorrow I have a surprise part day off so I am going to go to the gym after school starts and most people are working so I don’t have to deal with tons of people and I will work my little heart out. I have a slight problem though and not sure if I’ll go see the doctor or just wait and see if it’s the weather. For the past month or so my joints have been really starting to hurt. Mostly my right elbow and finger joints. I’m not sure if it’s Arthur starting to visit, or maybe my Lyme's is back, or just what. I’m going to start taking my MSM for joints and also headaches that I have on a daily basis but that’s almost been an always and see if that helps. If not then it’ll be time for the doctor I suppose. Not my most favorite place to go, sick people are there and it’s spendy.

I did not step on the scale today, one day away from sugar isn’t going to show me anything so I’m not going to use it until Friday for my update. I won’t expect any miracles this week but if I can just keep this up I know it’ll be better.

I haven’t started my next book yet. I decided to take a break from reading healthy books and start a love story. I need a little bit something different for a few days and then I’ll get to my next book.

Casey and I write a couple times a week to check in on each other and she’s doing awesome!!

This morning we had eggs, 45 calorie toast with a smidge of peanut butter and a berry smoothie. A 388 calorie breakfast. Perfect and filling and ready to face the day. No candy today, nope just gotta kick this.

Take care my friends and have a blessed and awesome day!!

You are doing wonderfully, Julie. It sounds like you have things well under control. I hope you are seeing the beginnings of arthritis. Let us know what you find out. I will keep you in my thoughts. :)

I've been reading a lot of Karen Kingsbury and Jodi Picoult lately if you don't read either of them I highly recommend them.

Glad you had a good time with your mom!

I'm so happy that you made it! That's fantastic! Every journey starts with a single step right??

Could you hear me clapping? Good going. Glad you had a good time last night, enjoy your book, and I hate ice on the road.....snows okay, ice not so much.

Good job! I completely goofed today. Was invited to a birthday, and had two pieces of cake... :(
But tomorrow is a new day. Good luck for you too!

Jo said...

Good for you! A day without candy is a wonderful day, and a huge accomplishment. See, you can do it. String a long line of those days and just think of where you will be.

You Go Girl! Staying away from candy is a hard habit to break, I think I finally broke mine..I have not had any at work since the 1st!

My downfall came today when the boss bought us lunch from a deli, my gluten free diet went down the tubes while I enjoyed a veggie sub. Oh well, tomorrow is another day!

Blessings my friend,

Amber said...

Woot woot!!! Keep it up Julie!

I tried leaving comments from my phone but I think they are not going through for some reason. Sounds like you are off to a good start this year! There's nothing you can't accomplish! I wish you all the very best!!
