Keep Calm and Carry On
I wasted a bunch of time today trying to get Blogger's "embedded comments" working on my blog but no luck. There is a reply button after each of your comments but when I click on it nothing happens. I set it up correctly according to their instructions but by the look of the feedback I'm not the only one with problems. I SO WANT it to work!!
Oh well..."Keep Calm and Carry On"...that's my mantra! So when I weighed myself this morning and I hadn't lost any weight over the past week I took a deep breath...and carried on! I'm actually happy I didn't gain any weight as this weekend was a bit of a bust. We were invited out for dinner Friday night and I stuck to the roasted veggies, grape tomatoes and chicken (encrusted with corn flakes, I never knew how good that tasted!) and then I had a small slice of lemon meringue pie - my favorite! Oh yes, let's not forget the three glasses of red wine (oops!) Then on Saturday night a friend and I ate at Jambalaya and while I went with the intention of having the Jerk Chicken Salad I somehow ended up with my usual favorite that I simply can't resist - the Pad Thai with chicken and shrimp. I also had Thai soup as an appetizer (which I surely didn't need) and 2 white wine spritzers with sour Green Apple - yum yum! Then my friend and I went to a movie (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - a must see!) but no popcorn or drink for either of us. (I only ate half of my pad thai and had the rest last night for supper!)
So I should consider myself very lucky I didn't gain weight so I sit at a total of 6lbs lost for the past 3 weeks. I can live with that, and have renewed my efforts today resisting all temptations at work and here at home...so far:)
Oh, a wee bit more month end financial information; actually it's very exciting to me, maybe not to you, I had 17 NO SPEND days in January!! That has to be a new record for me AND I had $50 left in my account so I took $40 out today and put it into my SEALED POT!! WOOT WOOT!! AND I'm starting February with $25.00 in my wallet - I don't even need to take any cash out! It's funny talking about little bits and bobs of money as if I 'm a bloody millionaire or something but really I'm thrilled! And that's on top of my little $14 splurge on Friday at the Goodwill store LOL!
So my mantra for February - "KEEP HOME AND SAVE ON"!
I'm going to put my February challenges and goals on a page up top so I can keep reminding myself what I need to accomplish. But first - to the bat bike bat girl!! It's time to work that butt!!
