August 31, 2007 — Just 4 Today

Just 4 Today I'llJust 4 Today, I’ll drink my fiber twice (done once!), drink 2 liters of water (so far, about 1/2 liter), walk 5 miles (yesterday, no evening walk – 2.06), NOT eat between meals & NOT take seconds.

I’m on my second cup of coffee and I tried my dad’s hot/cold water trick (sort of, I used the cold tap water and not a bucket of ice water.)  And I still have a headache but, I feel almost human.

I’m really looking forward to the weekend.

What are you going to do today?  Can we walk?

My Daily Affirmation

Just today, I’m not going to eat between meals and I’m not going to take seconds. And I’ll weigh myself and use Nutribase and the tools of The Hacker’s Diet to help me reach (and keep) my goals.

Yesterday flew by and I think today will be more of the same.  I didn’t visit ANY of my blogging friends yesterday — at least not once the day got rolling.  And today will be even more jammed.  Work, shopping (at lunch for shoes) & wedding . . . . The perfect combination for trouble later.

There will be ‘dinner’ at the wedding.  Not a sit-down dinner, but tables of nibbly treats.  Just the sort of thing to trick a person who’s been running around like a crazy person all day.  I’m hoping that I can have a quick sit-down meal with mister before the wedding.

Here’s how crazy-busy this week’s been:  I’ve been looking forward to this week’s opening of the city’s new community center / gym for a year.  A YEAR.  And it opened on Monday.  And I haven’t had a second to visit it.  ARRRGGGG!

A walk later anyone (Please)? What are you going to do today?

Yesterday was a day of wild ups and downs.  Bombshell is struggling and if anyone has ideas for how to help, I think she’d appreciate it.  Or just a good strong hug — sometimes that does more than anything else.

One of the best things about yesterday, was my virtual walk with Olivia.  We both took longish mid-day walks — virtually at the same time!  She’s shared a photo from her half of the walk   And the whole idea was so exciting, I’d like to do it again.

Would anyone like to join us today for a walk?
