Keepin' at it

Why is is that weekends seem to pose the most problems for dieters and problem nibblers? I am actually doing well today, but it is a struggle. I fixed Confetti Chili from the Ellie Krieger cookbook, and it is simmering right now. I smells great. Needless to say, I am ready to dig in right now, but dinner is 1 1/2 hrs. away. I have also determined that the 100 calorie snack packs were invented by the devil. Great idea gone sadly awry. When I want a sweet snack (or a Cheeto) the 100 calorie pack sounds like the perfect solution, doesn't it? Well, one pack just seems to whet my appetite for more. I resist the temptation, but feel deprived. Pepper strips and carrots just don't have the same appeal, unfortunately.

I remain hopeful that I'll be able to finish out the day without cheating. Perhaps going to bed at 7:30 will help. :)

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for you note today. I wish you good luck with your "new" endeavor. You and your husband can do it. The key being that you do it together. I could not have been successful on my diet or my fitness if I had to go it alone.
    So, now, we have settled in to our own routines and still doing quite well. I have to tell you, though, that our supplemental program, AdvoCare, has really enhanced our abilities, our successes, and has generally helped us to feel great. We have been taking them for about 8 months. Think about it.....
    In the meantime, keep me updated with your progress. Believe me, it gets better once you make up your mind that wellness will be a priority. Take care.


Go on, leave a comment. You know you want to.
