Thursday Ramble

We are like people on a moving sidewalk which is
going the wrong way. If we stand still, our goal
recedes. If we walk at an easy pace we barely keep
from slipping back. Only through extra effort
can we win real gains.

Dinner last night.  Mediterranean Rosemary Chicken and chopped broccoli.

Good morning.  It's a cold one to be sure, but at least the sidewalks are finally clear. I went out yesterday and took a good long walk.  I recently joined a pen pal group, and  I've been looking for some nice stationery.  I remember the days when you could find it wherever you went.  Now, I went from store to store and no one had any.  Yet another casualty of the computer age.

On Tuesday I went to art class, and aside from the teacher, I was the only one there.  Nothing like personalized training.  Didn't accomplish much, though.  We worked on water colors and basically the training was about mixing and shading.  I got kind of bored and suggested we end early since I knew he wanted to talk to his boss about sending for supplies.  I realized that I really missed my classmates and how much they add to my day.

Today I'm off to WW this morning for my weigh-in.  Haven't been getting much walking in so once again I am feeling a bit anxious about the scale.  Oh how we fear that scale! Most of my peers are nervous about it.  It's good to know that I am not alone.  And, as motivated as I am, it would be oh so easy for me to slip, and as a retired addiction counselor I am aware of that.  Food is like a drink to me.  Hubby has been bringing home Oreo cookies, and I'm not going to lie.  I've been so tempted.  One cookie would never be enough.  So I instead reached for one of my Fiber One's.  Only 90 calories and 2 WW points.

Well, that's about it today.  Time to shower and have a bite to eat before I venture out into the biting cold.  Sure do hope this bus is running okay today.  Have a good one.

  1. Yes, stationery is going the way of the dodo bird. Even nice cards (blank or otherwise) are getting harder to find these days. Everything's computer, baby!
