The Weekend Report

Kinda like SNL,huh? Well, usually I wouldn't post on a weekend, but I know everyone is anxiously awaiting news on the haircut weight loss. I DID lose weight after the haircut!!! Not the 2-3 pounds I was expecting, but .8 #!! Hurray!! Lest you all think I'm actually crazy, I do realize that my loss had nothing to do with the haircut, but thinking that it did makes me feel better. I'm so easy to please. I'd post a picture of the new "do" but I can't seem to figure out how to get a pic posted. That, and I'm too lazy to have Hubby Dearest take a picture of me. So for those imagining what the hair must look like, it's short, salt & pepper, and spiky. There, that's it in a nutshell.

My "knee-teorologist" (Thanks Mary Fran) weather predictor was correct, we are getting flurries today. Nice to know some things never change.

I found shoulder exercises in the Cooking Light magazine yesterday. I am anxious to try them out on my ailing shoulder. Hopefully, I can get things stretched out and in working order before golf season is in full swing. (Get it, full swing?) Even picking up the old frying pan right handed is a pain in the shoulder. That should keep me from cooking, but it doesn't. I behaved myself again yesterday, but did add an adult beverage (or two) to dinner. I took that possibility into account, so I was within my acceptable range. I'm wondering if maybe I might lower my range just a trifle. I was giving that some thought this morning as I ate breakfast at our new Sat. morning breakfast destination. Heck of a time to think of lowering the number of calories, don't you think? I sat there consuming 250 extra calories as compared to my usual breakfast. Oh well, it's what keeps me focused for the rest of the week. (Hopefully.) I can hear the crowd roaring "CHEATER"!!

Not to let breakfast get the best of me, I'm planning for our evening out with friends now. Again, adult beverages will be involved, so I'm thinking toast and celery for dinner. Perhaps an herb or two for flavor. Sounds delightful, doesn't it?? I'll just have to think of today as kind of a throw away day, and get my act back together tomorrow. I can, and will, do it. I've promised myself not to let one day get the best of me. In the past one day of goofing off, and I'd go off the wagon for months at a time. NOT THIS TIME!! I'm in this for the long haul. Report to follow on Monday.


  1. Nothing wrong with an adult beverage, especially if you plan ahead for it. Enjoy yourself tonight, but not so much that you regret it later.

  2. Congrats on the new do. For me it is my ankle that let me know when rain is on the way. Have a great weekend.

  3. I love adult beverages! Found your blog through Deborah's Mountain of weight to lose.


  4. Hi there! Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog :) I'm so blessed to have readers as gorgeous and supportive as you!

    Well done on the loss! :) Do we get to see photos of your haircut?

  5. Did you enjoy your adult beverages??? Are you back on track today??? You pegged it perfectly that as long as it's only a day or two that you are's only when it stretches into weeks and months!

    Ohhh do tell the shoulder exercises...or a link or something. My shoulder has been out of whack for a week now (back actually on my shoulder blade) and I would love to get this pain out of my system!


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