It’s almost Labor Day weekend!
I hope you’re planning some terrific things to eat this weekend to keep you on plan. Typically the meats aren’t the issue; it’s the parade of starchy and sweet dishes that you really have to beware of. Planning ahead makes all of the difference. I am going to be fine this weekend, but I hope everyone else sticks in there. There are better holidays to splurge on that one filled with meat, so do your best and expect a loss on Monday!
While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to provide some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on and help you hold your pants on when your drawers try to drop due to weight loss.

Thursday, August 30
I ate this:
Breakfast: Diet Coke, Modified Beans and Franks Casserole (weird I know, but baby!)
Lunch: Skipped it. I ate a late breakfast. Diet Coke.
Dinner: Hansen’s Diet Root Beer, and Modified Beans and Franks Casserole (the same thing… I know… welcome to the world of recipe development. You eat a lot of the same things over and over…)
Late-night meal: 1 cup chili, 2 Tbsp sour cream, 2 Tbsp cheese sauce, 2 Tbsp chopped sweet onion
Notes: I love my energy levels. I am so happy to make healthy, delicious foods, sticking to my plan, and slimming down. I also like not feeling so hungry.
I did a big, circuitous route through Target. Stop looking at me that way. It was a big store.
I need to unleash my inner nerd…and move more.
Writing and editing is a full-time job, and it means sitting at my desk full-time. I spend upwards of 12-14 hours a day writing, researching and editing, and in the process, I forgot to get up off of my keister. I need to make some time to get up and keep the circulation flowing. Not easy to do sometimes.
That said, I am looking into a treadmill desk. You walk only 1 mile per hour (it’s really slow) and you can use a computer at the same time. I’m thinking it’s perfect!
Convinced at the treadmill desk’s awesomeness? I am. And even though I almost fell off of a treadmill once when I sneezed, tried not to pee, and reflexively crossed my knees during the process, even I can manage not to fall off of the thing whether I’m emailing, writing site content, editing, taking calls, or, well, playing Words With Friends.
I am not sure I’m a fan of the price of his desk since I already own a treadmill, so I am going to see if my husband can build a desk for me with the non-time he has between work, MBA classes, and logging property for a septic tank. *snicker*
Still, doesn’t that look like a hoot? What do you think? Would you use a treadmill desk? And how are you doing with your eating and your own physical fitness?
