Just 4 Today — My first retirement Monday

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.


And Just 4 Today, I’ll drink my fiber twice (done once), drink 2 liters of water (I’ve drunk about 1/2 liter), walk 2 miles (which I did yesterday), NOT eat between meals & NOT take seconds.

My pre-retirement-frazzle kept me from posting much last week.  I had some sort of brain-lock and kept thinking, “Oh, just wait ’till this bit is behind you.  Then start fresh.”  Well, it can’t be any fresher than the First Monday….

I have had my fiber supplement and breakfast and brushed my teeth (you just had to know that, didn’t you?) I’ve got phone calls to make regarding a doctors appointment today and health insurance questions.  And I’m trying to sort papers so that anything related to my old job doesn’t haunt me in my new life….

ANY suggestions for getting organized for a life style that’s totally new to me would be appreciated.  My greatest fear is that I’ll fall into the habit of reading all day.  For a sloth like me that would be all to easy.

Sorry Guys, it’s heavily overcast and I slept late — very late. I’m posting this pre-coffee so I’ll try to come back later with more detail. (4 days….. 4 days….. 4 days…..)

I’ll be doing my 3415 routine again today — Just Today I’ll take a short walk around the block (it’s a city block) at 10 and 12 and 3 (ish)

Just4Today?

I’ve got a medical procedure in a couple of hours and I don’t know what to expect after that.  So MY Just 4 Today pledge will be a little late today (if it shows up at all.)

What about you?  What are you going to do today?

Walking, yes — I’ll be doing that. But, I think I’ve got to find a more powerful coffee. I feel like I’m still asleep. Readers? What’s your favorite?
