Thanks so much for all the great birthday wishes
Tues was my birthday, Wed was our anniversary so lots of partying going on here
YES, I did eat a whole chocolate cake by myself...chocolate/coconut to be exact...perfectly beachy, and the whole cake was actually an individual sized one...just 210 calories. I know..that's double the recommended SB daily calories but hey...it was 2 holidays...right!!?? And Suzzi...you missed a great blackened shrimp salad from Pappadeaux....you're close enough you could have had birthday/anniversary lunch with us. Will let you know next yr ahead of time, promise!
How are YOU all doing? I hope you're on track for life. This SB definitely gets in your blood, of that I can attest. Even when I ate non-beachy things, it was forever in my brain that I should be eating beachy
That says alot about how eating healthy begets eating healthy.
Life continues to move on...I get about an hr total online daily compared to 6-10 hrs daily just a yr ago. 6-10 was way too many, an hr, way too few but then, that goes right along with my wonderful gift of being obsessive/compulsive..either all or nothing, that's me!
Hard to get my email letters responded to in that hr and have been absent here more often than not. Beautiful fact is, though, I'm on track food-wise. STILL not getting in my exercise like I should but am happy wiht all that's going on here, that I'm able to eat healthy. There are days I'd literally KILL for some non-beachy foods! Not cravings of that sort really, just stress and emotions trying to overtake the new me. I've been good, though. You'd be proud of me.
I've had several family members contact me recently, asking for SB info, recipes, tips, etc....I've copied, pasted, emailed, snail mailed and am encouraging these loved ones to JUST DO IT! Going to be exciting watching SB work for them as it has for all of us here. I shared our website with a couple also, haven't seen them here yet but hoping to.
The construction crew that's taken ownership of our entire neighborhood as they replace gasline pipes is still here. Makes walking my neighborhood impossible; they're here before daylight, stay until way past dark, work Saturdays too. (I'd like to have their paycks!!) Sundays...been walking on Sundays, but once a wk is NOT enough. Weight loss is slow but understandably so...not much exercise equals slower metabolism equals slow or no wgt loss. Doesn't take a rocket scientiest to figure that one out, huh
Am happy with having 5 lbs off since returning from Ohio in Dec, though. Will count that as a positive.
The jumpy page syndrome has started, signalling its time to end this post. You all take GOOD care, know you're in my thoughts, heart and prayers MANY times a day and that as my time becomes more mine...I'll be here much more often. Love you all, Gramma
